There isn’t always a lot of room above the ceiling. So, ceiling-recessed projector lifts don’t always work. With Draper’s AeroLifts, though, there are more opportunities than ever for using a recessed projector lift. They feature a small footprint and they’re strong and durable.

The AeroLifts are powered by strong tubular motors for a simplified design, and feature a stabilizing arm which can also be used for cable management. Built-in adjustability allows you to deal with job site conditions quickly and easily. The projector can be mounted flush to the bottom pan. AeroLifts can also be used to recess speakers, security cameras, videoconferencing cameras or document cameras. They can be independently operated using Draper’s motorized lift controls.

All three AeroLifts are now US UL Listed to UL 2442 and Canada UL Listed to CSA C22.2 No. 60065-03. This certification means no issues with electrical inspectors after installation, and eliminates the need for expensive field certifications.
