    i want to mount my lcd over a fireplace.

    am having a gas fire and am wondering if i can hang my lcd over the fire. iam gonna have a large hearth that does not get much heat above it as the fire pushes the heat out rarther than up.

    has any one else done this as i dont want to kill my brand new lcd when it turns up.

    Hi,

    This is interesting,its something ive thought about doing with my Sammy.

    Remember however that there is a flu running behind the plaster board & brickwork on the chimney breast.When my fire is on I can feel the heat through the wall.Plus of course,this makes mounting the screen mount to the wall a bit dodgy as I dont know the width of that flu. Do you know yours?


    I think this is a case for professional advice.Its what I will be taking.

    Also you must not break the chimney seal either as carbonmonoxide travels up and out of the chimney, "the silent death for us" if we breathe too much in. It makes you tired and you die in your sleep if you continue to inhale.
    So if you are drilling into your flu "DONT" if your chimney is a brick stack then you will be fine with 1 1/2 " Screws into raw plugs. You ofcourse can drill the 1 1/2" hole to begin with.
