VIDEO PROJECTORS AND SAFETY
WILL IT PROTECT MY PROJECTOR FROM VANDALS? The robust housing in fiberglass can protect projectors from impact from stones or other objects.
WILL IT PROTECT MY PROJECTOR FROM THEFT? The projector can be blocked by a robust steel ring that comes out of the casing and which in turn can be chained to any structure.
IS IT POSSIBLE TO INSERT A BURGLER ALARM INTO THE CLIMATIZED CASE? Yes, we have several types of alarm systems including GPS for eventual traceability.
WHY ARE PROIETTA AIR-FORCED ENCLOSURES IP54 AND NOT IP65 OR A HIGHER IP LEVEL? IP65 or higher IP levels refer to a sealed case, which would prevent the exchange of air between the inside and outside of the enclosure, thus creating condension and overheating problems.
PROIETTA offers a custom solution, which are IP65 boxes equipped with air conditioning system, designed to ensure the best performance even when exposed to very hot climates such as the Arab Emirates.
CAN I USE THE CLIMATIZED CASE AS SOUNDPROOFING FOR MY PROJECTOR? Yes, with a soundproofing accessory sold separately.
I DON’T HAVE A PROJECTOR, CAN YOU SUGGEST ONE? Yes, we can recommend projectors to be used for all kinds of projects.
HOW DO I SELECT THE RIGHT CASE FOR MY VIDEO PROJECTOR? In the pages of each protective cabinet you will find the dimensions of the video projector that each enclosure can contain.
In oreder to correctly measure you projector you will nedd to condiser: projector height (with the steps set at their maximum), lengh (with and without lens) and width.
Furthermore you need to consider if you are going to use the projector lendscape or portrait mode and the maximum inclination of your projector.
Always remember that, in case you will need to be suggested in this choice, do not hesitate to contact us and we will be at your disposal!

CAN I MONITOR MY PROJECTOR EXTERNALLY? Yes, by means of a network cable through an isolated cable gland which can be connected directly to your projector.
PROIETTA STORM SHIELD AIR-CONDITIONED ENCLOSURE VS PROIETTA AIR-FORCED ENCLOSURE: HOW TO CHOOSE THE MOST SUITABLE? The hermetic closure of the Storm Shield enclosures, and therefore the absence of exchanges of air flows with the outside, allows the constant maintenance of the set temperature and the protection of the projector from the aggression of chemical agents.
The air-forced PROIETTA enclosures are able to evacuate the small infiltrations of sand;
however, in case of infiltrations of greater entity brought by strong winds, the watertightness of the air-conditioned enclosures ensures the protection of the projector.
The air-conditioned PROIETTA Storm Shield enclosures are therefore necessary for installations in:
– very cold climate
– hot weather
– environments subject to sandstorms
– maritime environments or cruise ships, in the presence of brackish water (ports, cities on the sea, etc)
– environments with high concentration of chlorine or corrosive substances
MUST THE WEATHER PROTECTION CLIMATIZED CASE ALWAYS BE CONNECTED TO AN ELECTRICITY SUPPY WHEN IT IS IN THE SUN? Yes, it is highly recommended, because in this way solar heat will automatically be evacuated.
MUST THE WEATHER PROTECTION CLIMATIZED CASE ALWAYS BE CONNECTED TO AN ELECTRICITY SUPPY IN COLD TEMPERATURES? Yes, it is recommended as the internal temperature will always be kept ideal, facilitating switching on procedures.
CAN I INSTALL THE PROJECTOR IN PORTRAIT MODE? Yes, in certain cases a we need to apply a small modification.
CAN I STACK TWO PROJECTORS ONE ON TOP OF THE OTHER? This has to be evaluated case by case, it depends on the models, eventually we can provide customized housing for stacking.
HOW MUCH LIGHT IS LOST THROUGH THE HOUSING GLASS? The glass is extra transparent and light loss is negligible.
WHAT IS THE ADHESIVE COVER ON THE GLASS FOR? The adhesive covering keeps the glass in place in the case of breakage.
CAN I INCLINE THE PROTECTIVE CASE AS MUCH AS I LIKE? Yes, but if inclined by more than 30° upwards or downwards you need to install an air deflector to protect against rain entering the filters.
HOW CAN I FIX THE PROJECTOR SO THAT IT DOES NOT MOVE? On the inside there is a plaque on which you can fix the projector.
CAN I INSERT A PLAYER ON THE INSIDE OF THE CASE? On the inside of the weather protection climatized case there is a space when you can place a video player and other hardware.
HOW OFTEN MUST I CHANGE THE AIR FILTERS? It depends on how polluted the external environment is?
CAN I INSERT AN HDMI CABLE INTO THE HOUSING? Yes, there are two cable glands to guarantee the use of HDMI, LAN and audio cables.
IS IT POSSIBLE TO CHANGE THE PROJECTOR LIGHT BULB WITHOUT TAKING THE PROJECTOR OUT OF THE HOUSING? It should be, but it depends on the projector model.

CAN I HAVE ANY COLOUR? Yes, we can personalize them in any colour.
CAN I HAVE A WEATHER PROTECTION CLIMATIZED CASE IN CARBON?No, it is lighter than VTR but it conducts electricity.
