Chief Introduces a New Suspending Ceiling Lift

The SL220 makes installations up to ten times faster than conventional lifts

Minneapolis, MN. - - (June 2010) - www.chiefmfg.com Chief, the industry leader in projector, monitor and TV mounting solutions, is excited to announce a new suspended ceiling lift that makes installation up to ten times faster than a conventional lift.


The SL220 features a quick three -step installation method that vastly simplifies adding automation into an installation. It no longer requires two or more people to install; you only need one person and one ladder. Also, no floor lift is required.

The lift measures 2'x2' (600x600mm) to snap easily into ceiling grids and is made of lightweight aircraft -grade aluminum for easy handling. You can use this lift with any of Chief's popular projector mounts (RPA Elite or Mini Series) for the best compatibility in the industry, featuring micro adjustments for fast and permanent image alignment and keyed locks for security. (RPA Elite and Mini Series projector mounts are sold separately.)

You can see the new Suspended Ceiling Lift (SL220) at Chief's InfoComm booth C4435 with several other new offerings. The lift begins shipping in May 2010.
