So weight is definitely a concern.
Sorry they are flat TV's but just a few years old so they aren't as thin and light as newer models. By design though they are flat screen, LCD TV's (32") though not as slim and light as the ones coming out in the last 2-3 years.

Might give a call to your commercial insurance carrier for any requirements; licensed welder/general contractor with bond/liability insurance before you rush out a buy a welder...

Adhering plywood to metal wall


I spent some time yesterday dry fitting the TV into the box and then weighing the entire enclosure. Provided I use long enough self tapping metal screws, I wont have to penetrate the exterior wall of the building and weld the nuts on. The box itself is not as heavy as originally anticipated and has enough surface area in the back for me to sink as many self tappers as I need to feel comfortable - 7 of which will hold the actual TV to the box and wall.

This will be much easier and ultimately make the install faster.

If you add some PL Premium adhesive before you use the self tapping screws-(TEC Screws) you will be good---the plywood will need to be chiseled off when the time comes.

Adhering plywood to metal wall


I went ahead and mounted my box to the metal wall using self tapping screws. It worked great! Here's a final picture showing the end result and one of how I adhered it.
