    Adding a noggin above is better than all this as mentioned already, it's not difficult unless the floor above is inaccessible or laminated or similar.

    Hi floor above is laminated

    Is this stuff strong enough to attach to ceiling and hold a 17kg projector. Its only 16 mm thick though 20171115_092440.jpg

    i’d be tempted to use grip fix as well as screws. That’s how i did mine. I just painted the marine ply white to match the ceiling and put as many screws in as i could within reason.

    I would definitely use ply and not shelf board - some of those boards can be of dubious quality.
