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.
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 different 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 an I-beam or structural steel column.
If you look at the mounting point’s page, there is a 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.
The lifting platforms are rated from 250 lbs to 850 pounds. (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.
We can definitely do a booth with a stainless steel finish. However there would be some challenges and it would be more expensive.
We would have to increase the rating for the soundproof material inside the box. Currently we have sound panels inside, but the outside of the system is wrapped with the same panels as the auditorium walls. This keeps the booth completely sound proof, and also gives it uniform aesthetics with the rest of the theater.
We would have to increase the gauge of the steel.
We would have to increase material thickness to make it sturdier, increasing booth weight.
There would also be cost involved in giving it a nice shiny finish (expensive in both labor and materials). Not an optimal choice, but doable nonetheless.
No, it rests on the floor. The fixation points are against the back wall.
It raises the mast by the same amount. In other words, it raises the min/max heights of the platform relative to the floor, by the same height as the extension.
- The movable range does not change.
- No. We have designed the system so you can lower the platform to right above the seat’s headrest. A technician can access and service all equipment standing up. He will have 300 degrees of free access to move, clean and service all equipment without needing to remove panels or otherwise.
