    Install a motorised screen to roll and hide your screen when you are not using it.

Tips and warnings

  • If you are looking for options for alternative screens, try using a big white sheet, screen paint, or a long white board for a screen. They're cheaper and usually easier to mount.
  • If you're considering buying a motorised mount for your projector, keep in mind that they usually run over £975. Take precautions when installing hinges and hooks. Use a sturdy ladder and a good drill.
