This discussion covers a routine in-ceiling “sheetrock” (aka drywall) ceiling installation. Installing an integrated ceiling projector screen requires a considerable amount of home-construction know-how. It may also require job blueprints for a building permit from your city or county office.

[23:54] Customer: Hello [23:54] Rick: Hello, how may I help you. [23:54] Rick has left the conversation [23:54] Customer: I’m interested in purchasing your in ceiling projector screens [23:55] Customer: I just wanted to confirm how much space i need above the ceiling [23:56] Rick I would be glad to help. To begin, here is a great tutorial: https://elitescreens.com/front/front/newsdetail/news/345 [23:57] Customer: Looking good. So installing across the ceiling joists is out! [23:58] Rick: Correct. It should run parallel to the joists. Undermining those beams will make your structure unsound. For that I recommend either constructing a false ceiling to install into or go for a traditional ceiling mount (to the ceiling, not in it.) [23:58] Customer: The in-ceiling projectors are what I want and I can accommodate either way. [23:58] Customer: It’s going into a sheet rock ceiling. [23:59] Customer: with about 12″ of space between the ceiling and the top of the slab [00:00] Rick: Sounds like a pretty standard installation that should be fairly easy to perform. If you are looking in our Evanesce B and Evanesce tab tension B series the housing ‘s height is 3.7 inches. [00:00] Rick: Here are the specs. [00:02] Rick: https://elitescreens.com/images/download/material/DimsionsTable/evanesce_tension_b_below_dims.pdf [00:03] Customer: Very good. With these specs, it should come together nicely. Thanks for the advice. [00:02] Rick: My pleasure. Thank you for choosing Elite Screens.
