Four Reasons Installers Love Our Foundation® LED Mount System!

Four Reasons Installers Love Our Foundation® LED Mount System!

May 12, 2021 - Precision and ease of installation are key factors in a successful LED video wall installation. That is why we built the Foundation® Mount System for LED with installers specifically in mind.

But what does that mean, exactly? It means our design and engineering staff looked at each piece and process through the eyes of an installer.

This led to several unique and powerful advantages to installing Foundation. Here are four of them:

Our designs are manufacturer-specific.

Draper® partners with leading LED manufacturers to develop Foundation mounting solutions specific to their products. We are able to do this by providing the same structure, but with brand-specific interfaces to attach LED panels to the structure. That means no additional cutting or modifications are needed onsite, unlike some LED mounts which are promoted as “universal.”

We make it easier to get into the building.

Even though LED mounts ship unassembled, it can be difficult to get the various pieces into the building. Larger video walls may not even fit in a service elevator. Foundation is designed to avoid this issue. All components are sized so that even on very large video walls, you'll have no problem getting them into the building.

Our design overcomes site conditions.

Technicians can never know exactly what conditions they will be working in. For instance, the wall may look flat, but there are enough waves or imperfections that it will be difficult to accommodate LED. The same issue might be found with the floor.

Foundation can adjust to absorb inconsistent wall flatness to create that flat attachment surface. The Foundation also helps get the system plumb and the bottom row of cabinets aligned and level.

Foundation is both precise and adjustable.

A high level of precision in design and manufacturing is required of any LED video wall structure, especially with narrow pixel pitch (NPP) displays. The very tight pixel spacings require tighter tolerances on the structure.

Draper designs and manufactures Foundation with great precision in our Spiceland, Indiana facility so you can always be confident that it will place the LED panels exactly where they have to be.

You can learn more about the Foundation, including LED partners with whom we are already working, here. Or contact your Draper representative and discuss your next LED project.
