FAIRFIELD, N.J. — Feb. 26, 2018 — Middle Atlantic Products today announced that its
Proximity Series Sliding Mounting Plate was recognized with an ISE 2018 Best of Show Award by Installation Magazine. The Proximity Series Sliding Mounting Plate addresses the growing complexities in residential and commercial applications that stem from ongoing decentralization of systems often located at the display. The editors of Installation Magazine, which covers permanent audio, video, and lighting systems integration within the global market, judged the awards on the show floor.
“To be recognized within the global market for the Proximity Series Sliding Mounting Plate is a real honor for Middle Atlantic,” said Timothy Troast, VP of product management, Middle Atlantic. “After identifying the challenges integrators are facing, we developed a solution that is perfect for mounting small devices behind the display, while providing ease of access with the sliding mechanism. The award serves as a confirmation of our mission to provide innovative solutions that enable integrators to deliver amazing AV experiences with every installation.”
The Proximity Sliding Mounting Plate mounts directly on the wall behind the display, optimizing unused space to store and reliably support today’s AV devices — without adding bulky storage furniture in the room or the need for an equipment closet. The plate mounts directly to the extrusion of Middle Atlantic’s Vision Display Mount Series multi-display wall and ceiling mounts, increasing both installation flexibility and ease of maintenance. The Sliding Mounting Plate tucks discreetly behind the display, concealing equipment out of view for a clean, elegant aesthetic.
The new plate from Middle Atlantic is designed to ensure integrators can quickly and easily install and maintain their customers’ systems. Integrators just slide the plate out from behind the display, unhook it from the sliding mechanism, and mount small devices onto the 15-inch by 10-inch mounting space. Adding to the convenience, the plate design allows integrators to service the system without having to remove the display or without being impeded by a small working space. This saves time on the job and eliminates the requirement for additional team members who would be required to safely remove and reinstall the display. In addition, the Proximity Series Sliding Mounting Plate features the industry’s most well-known and sought-after mounting system — Middle Atlantic’s patented, tool-free Lever Lock™ system. Speeding up serviceability, Lever Lock is expertly engineered to accommodate, conceal, and reliably mount a range of AV components without integrators lugging additional tools onsite.
