Quiet Room Screen

  • Description: for projections
  • Status: need to obtain epoxy bolts, then put up screen
  • People: Adrian (?)
  • Proposal : drill and epoxy bolts into ceiling near window. Drill auxiliary fixings to hold bolts in place while epoxy sets. After setting, (done) Perform pull test on bolts. Schedule team of helpers to lift screen into place and fix. These activities will create some dust, mess and brief disruption in the quiet room.
  • Requirements : epoxy capsules (I have some of these, possibly date-expired - artag), studding, large masonry drill bit, heavy duty power drill. I also have the latter 2, but can't bring them to the space cleaning day. It may be possible to do the drilling phase before that date.
