Rising Projector Screen


I post this here, because most of you low voltage guys deal with movie screens from time to time.

I have a customer request to install a projector screen that will rise from the floor. I told them I'd install one if they get one, but they have no interest in sourcing it. (Neither do I, frankly). As they are decent customers, I decided to put a little effort into looking for one. So far, net searches come up blank. Actually, I checked on DaLite, because that's the only company I know (remembered it from the film strip projector screens in school - beep!). This screen can be no taller than 9' when extended, and it is to rise out of the floor.

I'm not going to rig something. I already know they exist. It's a matter of sourcing one. I'm a professional electrician, not a farm rigger. I don't have a vendor for this sort of thing, is all. I did find one on the net just now, but it's a brand a never heard of before and can't find that brand anywhere else on the net. I'm sure that there's a low voltage guy that can recommend a known good one. I don't want to put in some piece of crap either. I'm betting these things are in the 1000's, easily.

Does it have to come up from the floor? Because I do know of some that are motroized that come from the celling. I try and find it again. What was the brand that you found?

I know you said you did'nt want to rig it, but if you charge them some extra money, all you have to do is put in a little 120v motor some cabel and BAM there you go.

I know the ones you are talking about but I cant find them.

I know this is probably a little late, but I'll throw it out there anyway. What you're looking for is the DaLite Ascender Electrol. I'm thinking they may have one other model that will do it as well, but can't remember off hand. You can contact the people at
churchscreens.com and they can get it for you if you still need it.
