Furniture makers Salamander Designs have paired up with Screen Innovations to deliver a solution for Ultra-Short Throw credenzas and the made-to-order Solo Pro line of motorized screens. Residential (and commercial) integrators will now be able to put together systems that will be easy to specify, simple to install, and aesthetically pleasing, without requiring an electrician or outside labor.
Salamander’s Ultra-Short-Throw sideboards are matched with SI’s Solo Pro and their optical “ST” material which the company says is specifically suited for Ultra-Short-Throw projectors, and take away some of the guesswork and the tedious part of the labor when deploying near-view display solutions in homes and other environments. The combo is described as a ‘place projector here’ solution that promises to work well with the lights on too.
“This is a unique proposition for the integrator and customer alike. No need to fish wires, so it’s much faster to install,” said Scott Srolis, vice president of sales and marketing at Salamander Designs. “Jointly we have made it easy to present, purchase and a speedier set up from start to finish. Just pick the size, select the color and then add the projector of choice for a gorgeous, seamless solution.”
Salamander’s projector credenzas include an aluminum support chassis, flush top surface, recessed projector cavity design and active cooling system, plus built-in louvers to vent warm air and keep equipment cool. The cabinet provides access to components and wiring for servicing. The projector credenzas are available in a selection of colors and finishes and can be custom configured with “super-rapid” deployment for integration partners, designers and customers.
The new Solo Pro screens are the first motorized screens with SI’s optical Short Throw material available with two motor options, both a lithium-rechargeable or low-voltage (24v) type which should obviate the need for a trained electrician or requirement of special wiring. They are available in sizes up to 100-inches diagonally (in custom ordered one-inch increments) and with 12 designer-selected color options to match a customer’s decor.
“Our dealers tell us all the time that they need a solution that truly gives them the ability to do something totally unique, custom, and cool for their customers, so partnering with Salamander was an absolute no-brainer,” said Skyler Meek, Director of Marketing at SI. “We are both made in the USA, we actually care about our dealers, and yes we have the coolest combo to hit the custom integration market in a long time.”
