INSTRUCTION BOOK FOR
Executive® Electrol®
Important Safety Instructions
When using your video equipment, basic safety precautions should always be followed, including the following:
1. Read and understand all instructions before using.
2. Position the cord so that it will not be tripped over, pulled, or
contact hot surfaces.
3. If an extension cord is necessary, a cord with a current rating
at least equal to that of the appliance should be used. Cords
rated for less amperage than the appliance may overheat.
4. To reduce the risk of electric shock, do not disassemble this
appliance. Contact an authorized service dealer when repair
work is required. Incorrect reassembly can cause electric
shock when the appliance is used subsequently.
5. The use of an accessory attachment not recommended by
the manufacturer may cause a risk of fire, electric shock, or
injury to persons.

Pre-Installation
1. Carefully unpack screen and remove outer wrapping
from case.
7. Make sure to recheck measurement of screen location
before installation.
2. Remove fabric and cardboard strips from access door.
Ironing Board
3. Remove access door by gently prying from middle section.
Executive Electrols 14' wide and over contain an ironing board to
flatten the fabric (long strip attached). The ironing board is part
of the screen case. Do not remove. Contact Da-Lite if the ironing
board is in need of adjustment. (Fig. 2).
4. FOR TYPE 3 INSTALLATION ONLY, remove wood strips along
bottom edge of screen case.
5. Remove instruction cover (Fig. 1). Remove, reverse, and
remount Center Support Brackets.
6. Do not remove metal shipping brace (secures roller),
wrapping paper or tape until screen is installed.
NOTE: Screen is not centered in box. Screen is set
22" from motor end.

Installation
1. Install screen by raising unit into position between joists
at one end only. Install one lag screw in each mounting
bracket. Secure opposite end. Support center of the screw
using the brackets.
5. Remove tape strips and release fabric (Fig. 2). Picture surface
should hang freely (Fig. 3). Remove any tape left hanging on
back of fabric. Bottom edge should be positioned between
bottom edge of case and center of roller.
2. Level unit lengthwise with a carpenter’s level and
a plum level.
6. Install electrical hook up that applies to your unit. Unit should
be installed by a qualified electrician.
CAUTION! Do not secure access door or seal in unit
until screen has been secured in position and properly
tested for satisfactory operation. Do not fit unit so tightly
that the screen surface drop door binds. Door drops by
gravity only.
ATTENTION! Ne fixez pas la trappe d'accès ou ne scellez
pas l'unité jusqu'à ce qu'il ait été correctement mis en
place et qu'il fonctionne convenablement. Ne serrez pas
l'unité au point que la surface de la trappe d'accès de
l'écran soit bloquée. La trappe tombe uniquement à cause
de la gravité.
3. If you are going to cover screen door with paneling or other
materials, allow access (suitable holes or a plug) to screws
when servicing.
NOTE: Must be installed in accordance with the requirements
of the Local Building Codes, the Canadian Electrical Code
(CEC), CAN/CSA C22.1 and the National Electric Code (NEC),
NFPA 70.
7. Test installation by carefully running picture surface “up”
and “down” several times. Be prepared to stop screen.
8. Make sure picture surface, when rolled down, has a full
wrap around roller. No part of roller should be exposed.
Fabric door and picture surface will drop simultaneously
when switch is pressed “down”. Door will close simultaneously
with picture surface as picture
surface rolls into case.
Cross Section
4. Remove shipping brace by removing 3 hex head
screws (Fig. 2).
CAUTION! Do not cut wrapping paper or tape
with knife or any sharp tool. Remove by hand.
ATTENTION! Ne coupez pas le papier d'emballage ou le
ruban adhésif avec un couteau ou un outil tranchant.
Retirez à la main.

Access Door Installation
1. Press switch “down” so that fabric door opens (Fig. 3).
4. Replace screws.
2. Remove screws (2) located on each bumper bracket.
5. Make sure there is approximately 3⁄16" clearance around
access door. Keep paint, plaster, tile or mastic out of hinge.
Fit access panel so it can be removed for maintenance.
NOTE: The access door is slotted on one edge, permitting the
grooved section to fit over the support clips on inside of case.
3. Place access panel so groove can be pushed over clips.
Holes in access panel brackets should align with bumper
bracket holes.
Screen Adjustment
The picture surface drop, and the opening and closing of the fabric door, are controlled automatically by limit switches which have been preset
at Da-Lite. When the picture surface is moving upward, it is controlled by a limit switch that shuts off when the door closes. To adjust for more or
less picture drop (viewing area), proceed in the following manner:
Screen Unrolled in "Down" or "Bottom" Position.
NOTE: Limit switch knob labeled DOWN controls point of picture
surface in bottom position. Limit switch knob labeled DOOR controls
the synchronization of the door opening or closing. Do not adjust!
Less screen drop
More screen drop
2. Place operating switch in “off” position.
1. Place operating switch in “down” position.
3. Turn the “down” limit knob one turn at a time
counter-clockwise.
2. When the screen stops, turn the “down” limit knob one turn at
a time clockwise, until the desired picture surface position is
attained. Test by raising picture surface approximately two
feet, then lower again. Repeat until desired picture surface
position is attained.
CAUTION! When picture surface is in "Bottom" position,
do not adjust for more than 3" of additional drop. Do not
allow any part of the roller to become exposed.
ATTENTION! Lorsque la surface de projection est sur la
position "Bas", ne déroulez pas la toile plus de 7,6 cm (3
po). N'exposer aucune partie du rouleau.

Restoring Roller Wrap
CAUTION! Do not attempt to restore a lost wrap
by adjusting limit switches!
ATTENTION! N'essayez pas de réintégrer un tour de toile
en réglant les interrupteurs de limite!
5. Gently lift fabric up and ease it over the top of the roller.
1. Run fabric all the way down.
CAUTION! Be careful not to crease or damage fabric.
ATTENTION! Prenez garde à ne pas plier ou endommager
la toile.
2. Run fabric up and stop just before door closes.
6. Additional wraps must be restored if screen surface continues
to hang beyond bottom of case.
3. Remove the access panel (2 screws, Fig. 3).
7. Test screen by running fabric up and down several times.
4. Two people with clean hands must carefully grasp the slat
pocket at each end.
