[15:49] Customer: Hello, I was interested in one of your recessed motorized projector screens but my ceiling is on an angle. Have you ever had clients install these successfully on an angle, roughly 20-25 degrees, or do these types of screens need to be installed on a regular non-angled ceiling?
[15:49] Rick I would be glad to assist you with this. Our user guides specifically advise against installing any of our in-ceiling electric projection screens into an angled ceiling.
[15:49] Rick: The only option is if the installer can go all the way into the ceiling and make sure that the screen is perfectly level & upright.
[15:53] Rick: This means that the bushing (external bottom panels) cannot be at the same angle of a sloping ceiling. Here is an installation video for the proper mounting of and in-ceiling projector screen.
[15:53] Rick: Another option would be to get one of our regular electric screens and hang it from the ceiling.
[15:54] Rick: Here is an easy installation video for a regular electric projector screen https://elitescreens.com/elitetube/elite_screens_ceiling_install_saker_tension.mp4
[15:54] Customer: Okay, thanks for the advice. I’ll keep it level and share this information with the installer. Thanks for the help.
[16:03] Rick: It was my pleasure to help. Thank you for choosing Elite Screens.
[16:03] Customer: Yep, I appreciate it.
