Television Safety is an issue that we've written about before, and we will continue to write about it to raise awareness about the dangers of toppling furniture and TV's - and kids. Especially at this time of the year, with school holidays and the kids at home, we like to remind everyone about the potentially dangerous situation that may be present in your home right now...
As far as we are concerned, there is nothing more important than keeping your family and friends safe, especially the little ones. With the increase in flat panel TV's in the home, the number of injuries and deaths relating to TV's toppling is still on the rise. Scary!
It's not that difficult to safely secure your TV to the cabinet that it rests on with an anchor or safety strap, or better still, get the TV off the furniture (which can also topple) and get it on the wall. You still need to ensure proper safety procedures are followed and good quality parts (mounts, bolts, straps etc) are used, to ensure that your installation is safe.
This is an excerpt from the Safety Alert issued by the ACCC about Televisions and small children. Please take the time to read it. You can access the full alert on their website:
Now is the time to make it happen, before it's too late.
If you would like to get professional help to install your safety straps, anchors or wall mount your TV - Get in touch with us. We will ensure that ACCC (Australian Competition and Consumer Commission) recommendations and regulations are adhered to.
Stay Safe :-)

I get so many questions and calls from customers who just want some help or advice relating to their audio visual technology. I thought it would be a good idea to start capturing some of the common questions and try to provide an online resource for people to get information. So, I hope that you will find some of the information contained in these articles useful. I will try to add as many new relevant subjects as possible to keep you all in the know. I really do want to make AV easy for you too.
