Projectors are being used everywhere: inside, outside, rain, or shine. For years, projectors have commonly been used indoors, but as technology advances, so does the use of projectors, projection screen materials, and many other associated accessories. However, projectors are complex pieces of equipment, and simply placing them indoors doesn’t eliminate the concern for their life and well being. There are a substantial amount of contaminates in your house, office, and indoor facilities that will negatively impact or even shorten the life expectancy of your projector. That’s where we come in: Enter Projector Enclosures.
There are a few tips we can give you right off the bat to help you with common problems as you are waiting for your new projector enclosure to arrive.
1. Check and clean the filter regularly to keep dust and other fine particles off of it. We recommend that you do this on an average of once a month. Some projectors have more than one filter so be sure to refer to your manual or user guide for maintenance instructions.
2. Your enclosure will need a steady air supply and should not have anything placed within a minimum of two inches (2″) of the sides. Limiting or restricting airflow will cause unexpected failure or, in many cases, immediate shutdown.
