Screen Innovations introduces invisible suspended ceiling mount system
Screen Innovations (SI) has introduced a mounting system that accommodates the lightweight, compact form factor of SI’s Solo and Solo Pro motorised screens. It preserves the rooms aesthetic by eliminating visible technology and mounting hardware.
The new system follows the latest lighting and air handling trends, allowing the world’s smallest low-voltage motorised screen cassette to be mounted flush with the ceiling grid. By using a standard threaded rod to mount brackets to the structure above, the cassette remains completely hidden from view.
Like other grid-mounted products, installation is straight-forward, fast and uses all standard hardware and tools.
The two-way power options of the SI’s Solo and Solo Pro uses a low-voltage wire that runs up to 300ft using a standard category cable or two-conductor wire. Adding SI’s Fontus lets integrators enable a full 485, two-way communication over a two-conductor wire. This lets the Solo system seamlessly integrate with most major control systems from manufacturers including Crestron, Lutron, and AMX.
“At SI, design and beauty are number one. Solo is a key example of a new chapter in design-forward motorized projection screens,” SI chief exective Ryan Gustafson says.
“We feel that by following the designs of the latest LED lighting and modern air handling systems, we give designers exactly what a motorised screen should look like in a commercial environment using Solo and the new Suspended Ceiling Mount System.
“This new concept of hiding Solo above the ceiling tiles while using the ceiling grid for the reveal is the cleanest look possible. We listen to our dealer’s feedback, then we invent.”
The ceiling system is available now.
