Not all of our DTV Installations projects are simple jobs. This beautiful Brooklyn penthouse is in a new high-rise building near the Brooklyn Bridge with floor to ceiling windows overlooking the view, but had an old home theater system which had been installed incorrectly. The monitor was mounted on an improper bracket which was simply welded to a metal beam, with flimsy shelves below the bracket. It was strikingly unattractive – and potentially dangerous.
The client called us to make things right without wasting any space, and here’s how we did it. First, we removed all of the old hardware and patched the wall (after taking the monitor down, of course!). The wall was reinforced and refinished in order to properly handle the new installation, and we mounted new equipment shelves to the side of the beam, built and finished to blend in perfectly. All wiring was run behind the wall and to the side shelves, so it couldn’t be seen.
This had been a spectacular Brooklyn penthouse with an eyesore installed right in the middle of the room. The client would up with a custom rebuild, and a home theater that featured a modern widescreen monitor matching the spectacular views of New York behind it.
