I ordered a VisualApex 106" electric screen that will be delivered in the next few days. I am trying to figure out where to place the power for the screen that will be either ceiling mounted or wall mounted (depending on if it will clear my TV that is mounted on the wall).

Anyone have a VA screen? Where did you place the power? Anyone else with an electric screen - where did you run the power?

Comments and/or pics will help greatly! Thanks.

I got the drawing from the MFG before I ordered just to make sure I could run power where needed.

 

Mine was in the UPPER left hand corner of the ceiling mounted screen.

My current screens ( 2 ) are hard wired from a ceiling outlet box - I got the power location on the electric screens from the manufacturer's website / cut sheets ( in my case, Da-Lite and Stewart ).

However, I've hooked up electric screens mounted in existing rooms by running Romex or 120 volt extension cord wired from the screen to an exterior type switch box, with the screen wall switch installed in that, and then a pig tail cord to plug that into a wall outlet. Worked fine that way too, if you have a way to hide the wiring. In my case, I had velvet drapes hanging on either side of the screen that hid everything. smile.gif
