New “environmentally conscious” OmniMount range2 November 2009
The OmniLite Series of flatpanel wall mounts is said to provide installers with innovative, easy-to-use and environmentally responsible solutions. The new range comprises the OL125FT (pictured, £80, for screens from 23in-45in) and the OL200FT (£90, for screens measuring 42in-70in).
According to OmniMount, the new products are engineered specifically to reduce the amount of material by 32% while actually increasing each mount’s overall strength – and therefore weight capacity by 56% in comparison to current competitive models.
Other features of the new series include condensed packaging, streamlined hardware kits, and manuals and installation templates printed on the inside of the box to eliminate the use of unnecessary paper. The OmniLite Series also utilises 100% recyclable internal packaging with no plastic bags, post-consumer recyclable outer box material and non-petroleum-based ink for all package printing.
OmniMount Systems MD Neil Curry told IE Residential: “As a corporation and as individuals, it is our responsibility to introduce products that meet today’s green standards. Over the past 18 months, we have invested substantially in advanced R&D in order to fulfil our environmental responsibility and adapt more eco-friendly products and processes. OmniLite is the result. The series features easy-to-install medium and large either/or fixed/tilt wall mount versions that cut down the number of parts needed. Additionally, all the packaging that is from recycled materials can also be recycled again – so there is absolutely no waste.”
