About Satellite Wall Plate
Fitting a satellite wall plate in your home will allow you to connect a television to an external satellite or aerial, providing a wider choice of channels and a better quality of signal. While the wiring might need professional fitting, the wall plate can often be fitted by handy amateurs, though those who are not confident might do well to seek professional help for the best results.
Available in an array of designs, prices can vary depending on the aesthetics and the quality of the materials. Many plates are intended to appear in keeping with standard home wall sockets, though the particulars of the design (corners, screws, colour) might need to be assessed to provide the best match to current fixtures and fittings. For some, a ?screwless? version will look better in the home but might be more difficult to fit. The quality of the materials can also be helpful when dealing with analogue signals, with certain metals providing a lower level of interference. Some designs are advertised as ?screened?. This means that the plate has been manufactured to combat interference from outside sources, doing more to ensure that the signal remains of the highest quality at all times.
Ideal for a home, work or business environment, the correct satellite wall plate is vital when fitting a television in any environment. Typically fitting to standardised dimensions, a wall plate can have multiple connectors, with each linking to a different source. Held in place by a twin set of screws and commonly made from plastic, the satellite wall plate is a common feature in every home.
