Chief's SL-236FD SMART-LIFT is an easy-to-install, finished ceiling-mounted video projector lift. Perfect for homes, the SL-236FD is marked by its smooth and quiet movement and ability to fit into only eleven inches of ceiling clearance. The ability to control fore/aft, left/right projector positioning further adds to the unit's flexibility. The SL-236FD is plenum-rated, and easily accommodates multiple control options, such as infrared remote control and radio frequency remote control.

Four Mounting Methods

  1. Four 3/8" Threaded Rods; allows for quick and accurate leveling. Use with SMA-650 accessory.
  2. 1 and a 1/2" Threaded Extension Column; allows adjustments (2 and a 1/2" fore/aft and 2 and a 1/2" left/right) for exact placement. Must use SMA-600 accessory.  
  3. Joist tabs are built-in for side mounting directly to wood framed ceilings commonly found in residential applications.
  4. Suspend by cables.  Use this option when the distance from the structure or overhead equipment prevents more traditional mounting methods. Must use SMA-650 accessory.


The SL-236FD Smart Lift is Plenum-Rated, meaning that its wires and mechanics are more heat resistant and safer than traditional electronics for the area above acoustic tile ceilings.

Finished Ceiling Mounting

The SL-236FD can be mounted on finished ceilings, or the traditional ceilings one finds in a residential home.

Quick Disconnect/Reconnect

The SL-236FD is not only quick to descend, it's also quite easy to hook up and disconnect. This allows for a relatively smooth lift installation and de-installation, a particularly valuable feature when using at trade shows, or on-the-go.

Cradle Positioning

You can position the SL-236FD's cradle vertically. The projector also has fore/aft, left/right cradle adjusted. The yaw, pitch and roll can also be adjusted as well.

Low Voltage

The SL-236FD will accept 5-30 VAC/VDC for triggering commands.

Multiple Control Options

The SL-236FD works with a wide variety of controls not included with the projector set. Among these control types are: Infrared Remote Control, Radio Frequency Remote Control and Integrated Control (AMX/Crestron).

Travel Distance

The SL-236FD has 36" of travel distance, with three stopping positions: up, show and service.
