Mounting Plasma on Brick Veneer

bmagsanayJanuary 3, 2007

Happy New Year!

Well, we've taken the plunge and bought ourselves a plasma television for Christmas. It's the 58" Panasonic 600U model.

I plan on mounting it over the fireplace (yes, I've researched all the pros-cons). However, a brick veneer covers the wall. It's not the thin type of veneer, but whole bricks.

The question I'm hoping you all can help me answer is; can this brick "wall" support a 130 pound plasma, using 5/16" brick anchors?

Thanks for any feedback or responses.

I am also interested in the same application. I will be mounting the Panny 50" 600U over a fireplace. I talked with the people at Best Buy and was told they don't mount into brick. I had considered mounting the unit with the TV bottom resting on a molded rubber pad on the mantle. i checked with Crutchfield, and was informed that wouldn't be a problem. I await further info.
