In heating or air conditioning, the distance air will carry, measured along the axis of an air stream, from the supply opening to the position in the stream at which air motion reduces to 50 feet per minute.
The distance between a luminaire and the stage.
The distance a deadbolt extends from the case under the actions of its key.
the distance that something can be thrown; "it is just a stone's throw from here"
The term used to describe the ratio between the distance of the projector lens to the screen and the size of the image. The size of the room dictates what sort of projector you buy, and if you have a small room you will need a projector that can produce large images over a short distance.
the horizontal or vertical distance that an air stream travels after leaving an air supply outlet before its force is reduced to a specified terminal velocity
The distance a deadlock bolt travels from the unlocked to the locked position.
The measurement of the projection of a deadbolt latch.
(n.) The distance a bolt or latch projects from the faceplate or case of a lock in the extended position. Source: Lock Industry Standards and Training (LIST) Council
The distance from the luminaire to the stage.
The maximum distance between the center of the core and a plane which is tangent to a specified envelope and perpendicular to the intended direction of flow The throw is generally referred to as the envelope corresponding to 0.25 m/s for zero supply temperature differential (i.e., under isothermal conditions).
The distance from the projector lens to screen.
The distance a deadbolt extends out from the edge of a door when in its locked position.
The horizontal or vertical axial distance that an airstream travels after leaving an air outlet before the maximum stream velocity is reduced to a specified terminal level.
In film terminology, throw is the distance of a movie projector from the screen. It is the distance the image is thrown onto the screen, and it has a large effect on screen size.http://www.presentersonline.com/technology/projector/throwdistance.shtml Often in home theatre individuals lack the correct throw distance in the room, but can buy a short throw lens, there are also "long throw" lenses available.
