    Question Projector Ceiling Mounts. Suppliers?

    Hi folks,

    Can anyone recommend a supplier that has a variety of projector ceiling mounts and brackets? I'm struggling to find someone via Google.

    Do ceiling mounts only bolt back, or are there any types with clamps? We're trying to connect a pole to a fairly narrow steel beam.

    TIA

    We've used B Tech mounts & Vision(Techmount | Vision | AV Installation ProductsVision | AV Installation Products) I have to say I like the vision ones most :-)

    We usually use CPC. They have a good range of projector mounts and brackets. The Sahara 1m kit normally works well in our classrooms.

    For more unusual installations I would be looking at making my own, I don't know how much that B-tech one is but for probably 20 worth of materials you could make your own. Two bits of steel and 4 lengths of threaded bar and some nuts and washers combined with a normal projector mount kit bolted to the bottom steel job done. I have made my own up like that for installs before around strange columns and bars and it has worked very well.

    Speak to Unicol who manufacture stands and projector mounts. You can order via Misco. But Unicol are well made products and alot better made than the cheap ones from the likes of CPC (which I also buy) depends on your budget.

    It gets even more complex, as the beam we want to suspend off is directly in line with the ceiling grid, so we'll have to come off at angle.

    Our usual AV installer suggested a piece of wood behind a ceiling tile, and then bolt into that, but it didn't sound very safe to me You could push the ceiling tile out, and the whole lot would drop on top of you, or onto the floor (cables permitting).

    Your suspended ceiling grid would also have to be designed to hold the weight which I suspect it wasn't designed to do.

    Sounds like you need to do a custom job, have you got 2 beams above the ceiling where you could run uni-strut between kind of like this:
    I I
    ---------
    P

    The I's are beams, ---- = Uni-strut and P = Projector.

    John: oddly this beam is totally separate from the grid. Hard to know what the history here as it isn't currently used to suspend anything from (it's been used as a lifting beam, of sorts, in the past).

    You can get ceiling tile projector mounts but they fix to the real ceiling and hang in the tile space. You can get automatic ones that lower themselves as well $

    if you haven't purchased the projector yet hang it from the beam and get a projector with optical shift. (V handy)
