How can Viveroo products be installed?
Viveroo iPad® Mounts and Docking Solutions can be seamlessly integrated in walls and in furniture, such as tables. There are three different ways of installation:
Installation in drywall, concrete, or hollow walls, including concealed cavity wall socket for Loop and Square: The cover protrudes approximately 0.35 inches or less from the wall, comparable to a light switch. On-wall profiles, which are optionally available, guarantee frameless, flush mounted installation.

Installed, the cover protrudes approximately 0.35 inches from the wall surface. The optional flush mount enables frameless, flush-mounted installation.
The Onwall MountingSet contains an on-wall profile, which is placed on the wall socket fully surrounding the 9mm cover. After the wall is plastered, the Viveroo product is perfectly flush with the wall.

No. Everything you need to mount and power your product is included when you place your order. Each installation option includes an individual MountingSet, made up of concealed cavity wall socket (as necessary), power supply unit, and mounting material.

Why does viveroo offer solutions only for the Apple iPad®?
Viveroo places the same high expectations on the design and quality of their products as Apple. Additionally, the iPad® is preferred for more than 90% of commercial applications. Apple, in contrast to other tablet manufacturers, follows clear formats for connectors and displays. Product variation is limited, which is why the Viveroo Loop and Square cover all current and expected iPad® generations.
