Hey guys, just got in my Da-lite contour HCCV 119" electric screen. From those of you with personal expierence in hanging an 80lb box, which would be better (support wise for future purposes) wall or ceiling, Im thinking ceiling, but what im uncertain of is at 80LBS will the beam int he ceiling hold it and be sturdy enough ans not to begin to bend, or will i need to re-enforce the beam. The floor above where the screen will be placed has a lot of traffic going through, so my concern i guess is do i need to re-enforce the beam, or should it be strong enough to hold?

I been in my celing a bunch of times and walking my 190lbs butt across one beam does not even bend a flex. I say no 80lbs screen does not need to be reinforced to get it mounted up there. Oh yes ceiling mount is much better to go that route ;)
