Hello All, we are used to install Draper and Dragonfly screens and these are over 6in deep/tall, but we are dealing with a dropped ceiling that only allows 4.25in till it touches the slab, do you reccommend any low profile screens? shouldnt matter, but doesnt have to be tab tensioned and about 120" diag. Thanks!

I think you're going to have a tough time trying to find this unicorn.

4" just isn't enough to house all the wrapped up fabric plus the roller motor.

I believe DaLite has a wall mounted model electric model that does offer a ceiling trim kit. You could try and get creative with that, but you will still see some portion of the screen casing.

yeah, your limit is the fabric roll. MAYBE you could get crazy kustom but probably not worth it. Can a "bulk head" be built or the height difference hidden by moulding?

Not sure if it's small enough, but look at the Screen Innovation Solo Pro series.

Actually it's close, but @ 120" diagonal, the box is about 5x5 including the brackets.
