Frequently Asked Questions

How is the digital projector cooled within this system?

The projection booth requires an opening for an air intake and an exhaust. In most of our previous projects we have the intake pulling from either an A/C duct, or just the ambient air.

For the exhaust, you will need a duct that actually pulls air at the required rate for the projection equipment. Or you can exhaust it into an open area, although this is not common practice.

You will need to run the duct work through the concrete platform into the projection booth. We will provide the duct work, and necessary attachments to adapt the system as a “docking” ventilation system (comes with all in-field adjustable components for universal fit). –we can discuss further.

What are the fixing pullout forces?

"Can you please provide the fixing pullout forces? How have these lifts typically been installed within the context of an acoustically sealed plasterboard cinema screen box (metal stud walls & plasterboard isolated from steel structure), as this is the condition we are dealing with."

In the attached packet, you will find a page with all of the dynamic forces exerted by the system. This is something you can provide the structural engineers to determine the adequate requirements for the specific project as it pertains to local building code.

Historically we have installed these against various backings, including:
  • Directly into concrete block
  • Directly into concrete block with a sheet or two of plasterboard/MDF in-between
  • Directly into a reinforced wooden backing
  • Directly into a reinforced wooden backing with fire retardant sheets in-between
  • Directly into I-beam or structural steel column
There are very large field of mounting points to give installers flexibility across project variances. We recommend securing all upper mounting points, and 50% of lower mounting points.

What weight and dimensions can the platform sustain?

The lifting platforms are rated from 250 lbs to 850 lbs. (1714mm x 1150mm)

The custom rack was designed to fit projector on board, along with rectifier or other support equipment, and have A/V, 3D, hearing impaired equipment, or additional equipment underneath.

The system is versatile for optimal use of space for the end-user.

Can the finish of the booth itself be stainless steel finish?

Yes. We can definitely do a booth with a stainless steel finish.*

*We can do just about any finish and match any style of any theater. However, there are multiple factors that we need to take into account i.e. materials, labor, and feasibility. Contact our sales team today to learn more about our custom solutions.

Does the mast need to be fixed into the floor?

No, it rests on the floor. The fixation points are against the back wall only.

Does the mast extension increase the movable range of the platform?

The overall movable range does not change. In other words, it raises the min/max heights of the platform relative to the floor, by the same height as the extension.

Will we need removable cinema seats to accommodate lowering of platform for access?

No, we have designed the system so you can lower the platform to right above the seating headrests. A technician can access and service all equipment standing up. He will have 300 degrees of free access to service or clean all equipment without needing to remove panels or otherwise.
