  1. 56 YEARS YOUNG – A CELEBRATION!

    56 YEARS YOUNG – A CELEBRATION!

    As UNICOL celebrates its 56th birthday, we turn back time to 1963 and take a meander down the leafy lanes of Oxford to Marston village, home of the first UNICOL building. A young man, who works in a Metallurgy Department, transforms a wooden shed into a fabricating plant. His father, who works as a teacher, introduces the new 35mm slide projectors into local schools, and asks his son to design a portable stand to demonstrate the new technology. The schools fall in love with the projectors and the portable stand and thus, the wooden shed becomes a production hub. To fully establish himself, the young man needed a company name, but what to call it? The portable stand, made of interconnecting components including a base, a platform and one column (made from 2” water pipe at the time), became the inspiration for the name. ‘One column’ =  ‘uni col’ and thus UNICOL was born! The company has been synonymous with safely mounting AV equipment ever since.

    VESA FIXINGS | FOR THOSE WHO DON'T KNOW

    So how do you know what your screens fixing pattern is?

Most mount manufacturers make universal mounts, which are designed to cover the VESA range and these mounts are categorised by screen size and VESA fixing array they are most suited for. We mention the minimum and maximum VESA size each of our products is suited for on the website and within the catalogue - but if you're still stuck and want to double check, please call 01865 767676 where our experts will be able to provide a helping hand!

    British AV mount manufacturer, UNICOL, have introduced a universal variant to the VertiSlide Serviceable Cassette Mount range.
