Q: I am interested in buying an in-ceiling trim kit for my Saker electric screen but I notice you don’t provide it. Why is that?
A: We don’t offer an in- ceiling trim kit for the Saker series because we already have another screen with the same material for that. The VMAX 2 is an electric roll-up screen that uses the exact same material as the Saker series but it’s casing accommodates an in-ceiling trim kit. We have many sizes and aspect ratios of this screen to choose from.
