[15:44] Customer: Hi…would I need special mounting brackets for mounting a 120” VMAX 2 in the ceiling?  If so, which ones?

[15:49]        Rick: the VMAX 2 is designed to be mounted on the wall or on the ceiling. You will not need any special after-market product.  It’s all there.

[15:52] Customer: If mounted to the ceiling...what is the distance from the ceiling to the top of the viewing area on a regular screen and a 24" drop screen?

[15:55]        Rick: The casing gives it about 4 inches more. To be more precise, it is 3.5 inches.

[15:56]        Rick: with a 24 inch drop it will be 27.5 from the ceiling to the top of the viewing area. Here is the dimensions table:

[15:59]        Rick: For good measures, here is an instructional video we did on ceiling installations in general: 

[15:59] Customer: great...thanks.

[16:06]        Rick: It was my pleasure to help; have a great day.

[16:14] Customer: one more question...if we do need to drop it about 6" from the avoid pipes...what brackets do we need?

[16:15]        Rick: We do offer an aftermarket accessory for that. We have a 6” wall bracket to bring it out from the wall:  our L brackets the ZVMAXLB6-B are a good answer.  If you would like to go over more options regarding this,   please send me a picture of your proposed installation and I can assist you with more advice.

[16:18]        Rick: Other options can be acquired from just about any hardware store.

[16:19] Customer: it...thanks again..

[16:20]        Rick: My pleasure sir.

[16:20]        Rick: Thank you for choosing Elite Screens.
