Wall Opening and Artwork Sizing
ARTV can accommodate most TV sizes from 50" to 75" plus Sound Bars – See Table on Products Page for required Picture Frame sizes for different size TVs.
ARTV can accommodate pictures up to 20 pounds but since the weight of the TV is used to help push out/up the picture, it might require adding some weight to the TV (a heavier TV can accommodate a heavier Picture).
- Reference the diagram below for the minimum TV weight vs. Picture weight
- The Picture weight includes the canvas, stretcher bars and frame
- TV Weight includes the sound bar
- For heavier pictures, you might have to add weight to the TV
Example: If the TV weighs about 55 lbs. the Picture needs to weigh less than 15 lbs.
Note: The lighter the picture the better. For this reason, we recommend using paintings or prints on stretched canvas with gallery wrapped edges (frameless) or floating frames, to minimize weight. See instructions the User’s Manual for constructing picture frames, click here.
