A guide to choosing your projector lift


A guide to choosing your projector lift

How many types of business meetings can you think of in 30 seconds? Go!

We came up with: slideshow presentations, video conferences, brainstorming sessions, job interviews, board meetings, pitch sessions, damage control meetings, movie presentations, and client workshops.

They’re just a handful of all the types of business meetings happening every second all over the world.

Think of all the boardrooms and conference rooms who have different groups passing through them and holding various types of meetings every day. Now think about all the different equipment each specific meeting does and doesn’t need. The degree at which meeting settings and requirements change means maybe businesses have the one room that needs to adapt to many different purposes.

One aspect of those rooms are projectors. You don’t need them all the time (but you will for that big slideshow presentation next week!), so a projector lift is an ideal mechanisms that can help protect a projector as well as clear space from wires and cables on a conference room table.

Think of all the ways you can rearrange furniture in a room to adapt to a range of settings.

Imagine the frustration if you couldn’t add or remove office chairs, set up a lectern for large-scale meetings, enable video conferencing tools, incorporate microphones and speakers, and utilise visual displays.

Choosing a projector lift

Choosing a projector lift may seem a little trivial – surely it’s just an object that lifts and lowers a projector? Well, yes, that’s exactly what it is! Still, there are a few things you should look out for to ensure you’re getting the best deal. Look for:

Quality craftsmanship
Flexible range of movement
Quick and quiet operation
Easy, unobtrusive installation (that does not damage your existing framework!)
Sleek design
Individual remote operation

Things to ask yourself (before you shop around for projector lifts!)

How large is your projector, and how much does it weigh?
This will, clearly, help you determine the size of the projector lifts you should be looking at.

What distance do you need the projector lowered and raised?
Will a standard mechanism suffice, or will a scissor-lift provide a wider range of motion?

Do you have room in the ceiling for the lift mechanism?
If not, that’s OK – they can be installed into a wall cavity, too!

Where can you use them?motorised projector lift

As we’ve already mentioned, projector lifts are ideal for office spaces that need to reveal and conceal projectors on a regular basis. But they’re also great for the home. If you’re lucky enough to be able to indulge in your own theatre room at home (lucky you!), a projector lift will not only conceal the device when you don’t need it, but will also protect it from damage.

You can also use them when space is confined – think the boat or smaller meeting rooms. The quick mechanical operation means you can seamlessly and rapidly hide the projector from view when it’s not being used.

Great service and really quick shipping. It is great to know that you are getting quality parts from a Scandinavian manufacturer with your standing desk purchase rather than the cheap knock off stuff you get from other major brands. Reasonably priced for the quality too!

Guy was very accommodating with meeting him at a time that suited me. He assembled the desk prior to me collecting so I only had to carry it inside with help (it's pretty heavy). The desk is great, the storage racks underneath with the 6 x built in powerpoints was worth the extra money. I have a functioning & tidy workplace.
Guy was brilliant, I highly recommend.

Have now purchased 2 stand up office desks off Guy, benchmark sales service from him, all via email, so easy; from quote to plug in, only matched by the strong quality of these machines, solid and stable. If only everything in life was this easy and reliable.

I purchased an EDesk this month from Ergomotion, and it was a remarkably smooth transaction. Guy was eager to answer all my questions before my purchase. As a first-time buyer of a standing desk, I truly appreciated how he addressed my queries with thorough details and provided options within my budget.

The delivery process was also smooth, despite a slight delay in the ETA. Guy ensured I received all necessary updates from the courier/removalist.

I've been using the desk for a couple of weeks now and I'm satisfied with it. It's sturdy on all height adjustments and the motor works as expected. I also like oak finish because it's clean-looking and suits my room setup.

Overall, I'm happy with my purchase and I'll definitely recommend Ergomotion to someone looking for their desk needs.

I've had an ergomotion desk for 10 years. It's still as good today as it was brand new. Over the years Guy has always responded promptly to any guidance I've needed (mostly help putting the desk back together after removalists take it apart).

Great service from Guy and the team at Ergomotion! Helped with all my queries and was able to source a standing desk part for me when many others weren't able! Highly recommend!

Skip the big name brands and buy from Guy instead, 10/10 linak parts with a very well built tabletop.

I purchased the edesk from Guy at Ergomotion. Guy was a pleasure to deal with and the desk arrived the next day. Guy was highly knowledgeable on the desk and provided very prompt support on the installation. I can highly recommend Ergomotion.
