    No issues with projectors in our woodwork room - the cookery room with fat and grease cause more problems.

    I think I would also consider a larger plasma / lcd screen - it may be more expensive initially but cheaper than replacing the projector or getting it cleaned after 3 or 4 years.

    I've used a couple of the interactive short throw epson projectors in our food tech and DT rooms and positioned them on a wall as far away from sources of steam and dust and both are still going strong after 18 months. A large interactive LCD screen would be a better or maybe more expensive option.

    Dust from clay perhaps?

    Yeah this, the fat and grease clog the filters and make them extremely difficult to clean, typically they need replacing altogether (the filter) and eventually as you say the projector will need to go.

    We have one in our DT room, not had any issues with it. Our science room ones are more trouble to be honest! With their constant burning of stuff which goes straight into the filters. At least the DT room has proper extractors on all the cutting machines.

    Oh and we have a computer in there too, which also isn't a problem.
    Us too. Maybe the sawdust is too heavy and never makes it up to the projector?

    I suspect so, there's also windows in that room so ventilation helps a bunch I expect.
