STANDiT by ERARD, the only No Drill TV Wall Mount | STANDiT® by ERARD is the first TV wall mount bracket with no drilling of the wall required.
In 1961, Henri Erard began designing and manufacturing TV furniture in France to meet the demands of the then new Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) format televisions. Over the next 50 years ERARD continued to research and develop new technologies as television designs changed and peripheral accessories such as the VCR became popular.
The Concept of STANDiT
ERARD’s most recent innovation, STANDiT®, addresses the need to mount small, medium and large flat panel style televisions WITHOUT hiring an installer, using any tools, or causing any marks or holes in building walls.
ERARD’s objective is to supply customers with not only elegant, innovative products but also to simplify and streamline their lives.
In response to the widespread complaints from professionals and consumers about wall mounting flat panel televisions ERARD’s product development team set out to find a solution.
What to do with plasterboard walls, glass walls, brick, studs, too weak and/or hard wall materials, refilling holes after drilling, etc.? The design had to be quick and easy to install, as universal as possible, compatible with different wall and floor materials, secure and stable, good looking and reasonably priced.
The design process was initiated and for several months this was the daily life of Patrick, Jean-François and their team: Drawing sketches, discussing specifications, looking for ideas, testing materials, prototyping, conducting capacity and stability tests.
STANDiT® is based on a balanced 3 points support principle. The center of gravity is lowered and virtually inside the wall so there is no risk the stand would fall even if inclined at an angle of 30 º.
First launched in 2012 to the European market, STANDiT® received the coveted “Observeur de Design” award, a French national design prize, the next year. STANDiT® has been exhibited at trade shows in the US, Europe and the Middle East continuing to impress both pros and consumers. “Why didn’t anybody think of this sooner??”
This product new to the US is currently in production at ERARD’s French manufacturing facility, having enjoyed robust sales in Europe for the past two years. Our goal in raising funds is to bring this product to the U.S. market and support a distribution network.
With the proper funding, we will be able to stock the product in U.S. distribution channels as well as set up a team to develop supply chains and market awareness through advertising and social media recognition.
- We are hoping to raise $80,000+ in two months.
- We absorbed the cost of exhibiting at this year’s INFOCOMM Show in Orlando and based on the extremely positive response we received, decided to move forward with entering the U.S. market.
- As the product is already in production in Europe, every backer will be sure to receive his STANDiT(s).
- Through our Indiegogo campaign, contributors will enjoy valuable discounts on each of the three sizes we offer as well as on multiple unit bundles. Therefore, at the same time we are crowdfunding we will get more and more units out to the consumer and commercial communities. More units in more homes and offices will allow us to gather feedback and reviews we can use in our marketing efforts.
