Remember the famous scene from How I Met Your Mother when Barney Stinson shows Lily his TV? We took it a step further. Not only is our Floor Lift able to hold a huge TV, but it also hides it in your floor or ceiling. What you don’t do to leave your friends speechless…
Is the Floor Lift for everyone?
Sorry for being so cruelly direct, but no. Installation of the Floor Lift requires, first of all, free space under or above the room where you want to see it. The lift mechanism is encased in a secure cover with a viewing window, where you hide your TV when you’re not watching it. The pocket mounts in the garage or attic so that a large, heavy TV frees up space in your living space. You can mount a TV that weighs up to 220 lb. this way.
How can I be sure the Floor Lift will be right for my space?
We make each floor lift exclusively to order. Such a complicated device requires complete personalization. When placing an order, we will ask you about the most important things or take measurements ourselves. Remember, we primarily manufacture the Floor Lift in two versions – as a ceiling or floor lift, so first decide if you want to place the pocket in your garage or attic. Match the height of the lift to the height of the room and your TV. Also plan how you want the flap to close, which will hide the jack when the TV is tucked away. Make sure that the dimensions of the opening on the floor will allow the TV to retract safely. They need to be larger if you decide to have an additional automatic closing flap.
What informations are important when ordering?
If you have decided to purchase a Floor Lift, you will receive a detailed questionnaire from us – this is used to create a personalized design. We need to know what kind of TV you want to hang on it – important is the height, width, and diagonal of the screen to which we will adjust the pocket. At the back of your TV, there are mounting holes in the VESA standard – we need to know their spacing to prepare a solid mount. You choose the dimensions of the hole in the floor yourself, however, we also need to know their dimensions and the height of the room – this will allow us to plan the exact construction of the mechanism. You will also be asked about the direction of the screen installation and additional obstacles that we should know about to make the lift safe and serve you for many years.
What is the distinctive feature of the Floor Lift?
The Floor Lift for large TVs is the largest of our TV lift family. Because the device hides in the floor or ceiling together with your TV we have made sure that the cables are safe – chain guides protect them from tangling and catching. We equipped the controller with an additional socket from which you can power your TV. This solution will allow you to hide all the cables, including the TV ones. The lift moves at a speed of 3m/min – quite a high speed for this type of device, but it ensures complete safety.
How can I control the Floor Lift?
We equip the Floor Lift with the full possibility of controlling our accessories. The basic and the most practical option is the radio remote control because it allows you to hide the lift without any cables and devices sticking out above the floor. Another equally convenient method is to use the K-SMRT module, which can be paired with the wBox app on your smartphone. If you want to control the elevator with your TV remote, you need an infrared receiver – IR-EYE, but it must be visible when the machine is closed.
