Installing TW7400 into celing with ELPMB30 mount


Novice Member
Hey, new to AVforums!

Looking for some help, I recently moved in and need to install my 7400 into the ceiling but I'm unsure of the ceiling type, if it's plasterboard or not. And am scared the projector is too heavy and will fall down...... have a baby on the way so that makes me very nervous that it might fall down, so cannot be a risk.

Wondering if anyone has had any experience with a projector this weight, and using special plugs is fine or the weight is okay or definitely now? just looking for some general experience and knowledge to get my home cinema back up :)

and should i just get a professional to install?

thank you!!!!

Assuming ‘you’ can sort out where you want the projector you need someone with joinery/builder type skills to asses the construction of your ceiling and mount the projector/projector bracket to the ceiling.

Also consider if you have power and a suitable HDMI, CAT and possibly control (for the screen) cable bundle to the projector.

An AV installer will usually cover all of the bases you require.
