All,

I have seen these long pole mounts in restaurants. I am working on one and have a need. Anyone know where to start or are these custom? I have a fab shop, but wanted to buy them if possible.

Tks,

We had to go 11' once and had to but the chief top bracket and the TV mount.

We then had to get the 11' pole at Home Depot and have it threaded to match the chief mount.

Better check with Ernie before you do it :/)

Depends, Tom -- are they putting the TV at the top or the bottom?

As said, get a piece of threaded pipe.
A good answer is easier with a clear question giving the make and model of everything.

Ummm. Peerless and Chief both offer alternatives to fit on the end of 1 1/2" npt pipe, depending on what you need. They offer flanges to work with many different types of ceiling structure. Wouldn't it make sense to look at a premade solution where somebody else has done the engineering, etc?

You can get any length and diameter you need from a pipe shop and they'll thread it for you on the spot. Pair it up with a floor flange so you can bolt it onto any surface and your good to go. Make sure to cap the end (bottom) with a threaded cap for safety.

I just had a 10' pipe cut and threaded for a mount job last week. I used 2" pipe and that allowed me to use the same pipe as a raceway for power and signal. Ran BX for power through a drilled hole (large enough to contain a BX box connector) into a box mounted to the pipe behind the panel and drilled a separate 1" hole (with grommet) for the signal cable.

Or, for one or two pieces, often even Home Depot!

Where does the cap at the bottom end go in relation to the floor flange?
