Thanks to the innovative efforts of the unique engineering company Future Automation (FA), this does not have to be so. Start combining your screens with FA’s unique motorized screen mounting solutions, and your love of big screen entertainment can become another stylish part of your living space rather than some sort of “design dictator.”
Future Automation has over 20 years of experience designing and manufacturing a full line of automated ‘lifestyle’ technology solutions, including TV lift mechanisms, wall brackets, brackets / falls. projector, movable panel mechanisms, ceiling brackets and much more.
Additionally, in addition to its established product line, FA has an in-house design team that can also create fully bespoke solutions for more complex or specific needs. AM designs can be so flexible that more often than not the only limit to what is possible when it comes to designing how the technology fits into your space is your imagination.
To give you an idea of the breadth of Future Automation’s solutions, let’s take a look at some examples of their work.
Switch from living room to movie theater
It is not always practical, desirable or even possible to have separate living and home theater areas in your home. So, for many audiovisual fans, the dream is to have a room that can serve as both a family space and a serious movie theater without either scenario compromising the other. .
With Future Automation, you can make this dream come true by having your projector mounted on a projector lift so it can be stowed in the ceiling when you don’t need it. Combine that with a sofa that magically slides out to make a cinema seat for movies, then slides forward again when you want to sit around the living room coffee table.
For many, the dream design solution for a TV, especially now that it gets so big, is to make it disappear completely when not being watched. Cue the moving panel systems from Future Automation.
These allow you to place TVs behind sliding panels that can be finished to match the decor around them. The panels can be installed as a split system that fit together from left to right when it’s time to store the TV, or as a single sliding cover that can be installed to move horizontally or vertically when covering and discover your TV.
The panels covering the TV can even be adjusted to the same level as the surrounding decor, with a mechanism that pulls them back so they can slide behind the surrounding panels when you want to watch TV. Finally, it pushes them forward again once you’ve put them back on the screen.
A variation on this theme allows you to hide your TV behind a picture or framed photograph, the wall art simply lifting up or, if the picture or photo has been installed in a modular fashion, sliding down the middle.
The ultimate bedroom solution
While Future Automation has plenty of solutions for TVs to pop out of the cabinets when you want to watch – especially useful in ‘second room’ locations – it can go the extra mile in bedrooms with a motorized platform that can actually work. hide the TV under the bed.
When it’s time to close your eyes, pressing a single button allows the TV to lean back from its upright use position at the foot of the bed until it is flat enough to fully retract out of the way. view under your bed frame.
Another design detail to add here is that if the frame of the FA product you are using needs to be visible, you can match its electrostatically charged powder coating color to your decor.
As impressive and varied as these three examples are, they barely scratch the surface of the myriad of solutions Future Automation can provide. You will be hard pressed to find any AV scenario in any room where the company does not yet have a fully realized solution or cannot come up with a whole new approach.
Future Automation’s wide product line is a clear sign of the experience its engineers have working with a wide variety of customers and customer needs. However, the company also works extensively with professionals in interior design, custom installation and furniture design, ensuring that they are always open to new ideas and suggestions.
Obviously, the problem with all sophisticated and rugged automation systems such as those offered by Future Automation is that they either don’t wear out well or are susceptible to failure. However, the company makes it a point of honor to keep its entire production process in-house in order to be able to constantly control the quality of its products at every stage of the manufacturing process, from design to final delivery and during installation. As Future Automation says, “It helps us ensure that the mechanisms we produce meet our exacting standards, every time.”
While most of our readers will be interested in FA’s residential installation rigs and devices, its products can also be found in everything from superyachts to high-end commercial offices.
