I have one of those way cool (or not) loft style apartments with exposed duct work all over the place and high ceilings. It turns out, a really good place to mount a projector would be from one of the ducts. It gives me a 15.5' throw distance and removes the need to have a really long extension arm hanging down from the ceiling which I think would look ugly.
I've tested the strength of the duct and it seems like it will be able to hold the weight of the projector plus whatever mounting gear I need. The question is, does anyone have advice about how I can go about mounting it to the duct? Or any concerns?
I'm not at home right now otherwise I'd throw up a pic, but it's basically a round duct about 10-12 inches or so in diameter. With my limited handyman knowledge, I was thinking about mounting the projector to a piece of wood and somehow strapping the wood around the duct with rubber or bungie. I have no idea how this would work and am completely open to suggestions!
