Hiding TV Cables

In-Wall vs On-Wall Options

Hiding TV cables in the wall

Requires a POWER OUTLET Behind the TV

Low-Voltage wires such as HDMI cables can be hidden in the wall. However, the ONLY way to hide TV Power Cord (that meets fire-safety Building Code) is to have it plugged into a power outlet behind the TV. So the TV power cord is hidden behind the TV, NOT in the Wall. Therefore, an electrical outlet or a Bridge-Style Power Kit is necessary behind the TV. *This option is NOT suitable for concrete wall, brick wall and most exterior plaster walls.

Hiding TV cables On-Wall with Wire Raceway

Budget Friendly

Both Low-Voltage AV cables & Power Cord(s) can be enclosed in the wire raceway to neatly hide cables and the wire raceway can stick flat against (non-textured) wall with pre-attached strong adhesive. This avoids the extra cost for a new power outlet, hence a budget friendly option to neatly manage the wires if you don’t already have a dedicated power outlet for the TV installed up high on the wall. FYI: Wire raceways that we use are paintable.

Hiding TV Power Cord That Meets Building Code

*Applies to in-wall wire concealment option only

The ONLY way you can hide TV power cord out of sight is to plug it into a POWER OUTLET behind the TV

IDEAL SITUATIONS

  LIMITATIONS THAT APPLY TO CERTAIN WALLS

Condos, Lofts, Apartments & Commercial Buildings

Drywall with Metal Studs

  • There’s usually enough cavity inside the wall to fish / hide cables in the wall
  • Can conceal / manage wires on-wall with Wire Raceway (Cable Cover)
  • Can mount TV with Tilting or Fixed / Slim bracket
  • Full-Motion mount is not suitable for Heavy TVs on drywall & metal studs
  • Can install new cable jack or power outlet. *Conditional

How to check if my Wall is Drywall with Metal Studs?

If you don’t have a stud finder handy, you can try these following techniques to determine the type of wall. When you knock on drywall & metal studs, you can usually hear deeper pitch sound & little bit of echo if there’s no insulation inside the wall (most condo interior walls don’t have insulation). Or, if you happen to have a strong magnet, you can put the magnet against the wall and slide it horizontally across the wall and you’ll feel that the magnet will try to attach itself to the wall wherever there’s metal studs which should be every 16 inches. Another method is to remove wall plate of existing *low-voltage jacks such as cable jack, phone jack, ethernet jack, etc… and look inside to see if the wall is hollow. (CAUTION: Do NOT open power outlet wall plate)

Concrete Wall

  • There’s NO cavity in concrete walls to be able to fish / hide cables in the wall
  • Can conceal / manage wires on-wall with Wire Raceway (Cable Cover)
  • Can mount TV with Tilting or Fixed / Slim bracket
  • Can mount TV with Full-motion mount against concrete wall (no weight limit)
  • Cannot install new cable jack or power outlet in concrete wall

How to check if My Wall Concrete?

In most condos, lofts & apartment buildings, concrete walls are usually covered with drywall glued right against the concrete slab. When you knock on a concrete wall, you will hear higher pitch sound than drywall with metal studs. Also, when you’re knocking on a concrete wall, it will feel much more solid than a wall that’s built with drywall & metal studs. That’s because the drywall that’s glued to the concrete slab will not flex as much as the drywall that’s attached to the metal studs. Another way to tell if the wall is concrete is by comparing the thickness of the walls throughout your unit. Usually, walls with drywall & metal studs are much thinner when compared to concrete walls which also serve as part of the structural support for the building.
