Selecting a TV lift involves several key factors. This guide will help you understand those considerations and choose the best solution for your needs. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us. We’re here to guide you through the process.

Ultralift’s ceiling TV lifts support a wide range of TV sizes, from 22 inches to over 100 inches. We can customize lifts to fit TVs of any size and weight thanks to our advanced manufacturing capabilities.

Keep in mind that larger TVs, which are typically heavier, require more robust support structures.







The height of your ceiling influences which TV lift will be most suitable for your space. To find the perfect lift, consider these tips:

  • Standard Ceiling Heights:

The Mercury Slim, Spartan, and Descender are ideal for standard ceilings. They can tilt up to 15 degrees when fully extended for optimal viewing.

  • High Ceiling Applications:

The Mercury Slim Drop and Descender Drop offer additional travel distance to bring the TV to a comfortable viewing height.

  • Swivel Features:

The Spartan Swivel can rotate 355 degrees, allowing multiple viewing positions.


Different TV lifts require varying amounts of space within the ceiling cavity.

Here’s what to consider:

  • Larger Cavity Requirements:

The Descender and Descender Drop move vertically into the ceiling cavity, necessitating 1 to 1.5 times the height of the TV for proper installation.

  • Smaller Cavity Requirements:

The Mercury and Spartan ranges tilt the screen to fit into smaller ceiling cavities. The Mercury Slim fits into tighter spaces compared to the Spartan.

Ultralift offers TV lifts with varying designs. Consider these distinctions between our key products:

  • Actuators vs. Tubular Motors:

The Spartan uses actuators, while the Mercury Slim employs a tubular motor.

  • Exposed vs. Hidden Components:

The Mercury Slim has visible cables and struts on each side for support, whereas the Spartan keeps all cables concealed, offering a clean appearance when opened.
