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.

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).

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.
