Attaching TV wall mount to steel studs
My office wall has steel studs (not sure what gauge). The other side of the wall is the back stairway to the second floor. The TV would be mounted high enough on the wall and close enough to the bottom of the stairway that one could apply a wood backing from the stairway side.
I picked up a TV wall mount from HD for our newsroom 27" TV. The instructions tell how to mount to cement walls or wood studs, using 4 fairly hefty (3/16"?) lag bolts.
I suspect the steel studs aren't strong enough to support this heavy TV leveraged out on that mount. Anyone have any experience with this kind of problem?
