Plasma Installation cost (examples?)


Standard Member
Anyone got any cost examples of having their plasma professionally fitted?

Looking to get a Panasonic 37/42 fitted to a plasterboard on brick wall, with a flue behind (no fire underneath, looking to seal the fireplace space and use for av boxes).

House is modern (2 yrs old).

Alternatively looking for advice on fixings/attachments for DIY install. Do the unicol type brackets come with bolts? Have to get your own? (Have B&Q nearby if someone can tell me what to get, and can handle a drill (& watch This Old House with Steve and Norm!).

jen unicol brackets do i think but if not get some rawbolts from bq your looking at about £200 + for pro install
you could drill a couple of holes through in to the flue to hide cables why thay are at it

Just paid £200 for plasma cabling in a new house (before plasterboarding) - loom consisted of 10 x mini coax, 3 x cat5e, 1 x multicore for RS232 approx 10m in length.

Unicol wall mounts come with the required bolts to attach the display to the wall mount.

You have to provide your own bolts or fixings to attach the wall mount to your wall - for brick work B&Q do a range of expanding bolts in a kit along with a brick drill bit.

Look at providing two cable ways up to your display - one for the power cord and one for all of the video cables; I'd install a full compliment of video cables just in case you want to change your configuration at any time in the future.
