I think the only way to improve that is to use insane amounts of gaffer tape to attach the projector to the roof rather than bolting it on!

Is it just hanging from the cables? There's enough wire there to support the projector without a ceiling mount!
I do think the installer needs more practice before getting GCSE macrame!

He must of done it for free surely? Shocking!
Whats all the extra cabling about?

we had two projectors held in the ceiling (similar setup to that pic) by screws that barely made a hole.
we had a a comms cabinet that was so badly installed it was hanging off the wall ready to drop. and we have two IWB installations on the p!ss and so low that the teachers desk is in the way.
so we could probably rival you overall

hes abviously used a cable thats waaaaaaay too big probably not realsing untill he arrived that it is a solid ceiling and not suspended, and had no where to hide the spare cable.

i did have one of these fall down it was held in plasterboard by normall screws! It was above my desk and i was putting a cable and fell down in my hand. I shouted to a few coleagues and they ran and got a long bit of wood that we propped it back up with whilst i dismantled the cab and put the switches on a shelf next to it. I then tied the switches round a pipe with network cable to stop them from falling off! Hang on its still like it nearlly two years later!!! :P

Power cables can get very hot when coiled like that, very dangerous.

Well i'd show you the best install i've seen, but its no longer there... the mount came un-bolted from the ceiling, ripped the cabling out of the ducting and landed projector-first on the floor (we suspect it hit a desk on the way down).
Fortunately it was during school hols, so it didn't land on anyone... the company who installed it have arranged for it to be repaired (only the casing was broken, turned out the projector still worked) and then they will "try again"...
(of course this is the same company who, while drilling through a concrete slab between levels, managed to hit a hot-water pipe and flood the PDHPE staffroom)
