Projector Screens

Projection screens provide a smooth, light colored, usually fabric surface for images and video projected through an overhead or other projector unit. The screen usually retracts like a window shade into a storage case or other supportive structure and the rolling mechanism usually features automatic safety stops to protect the screen. The fabric is carefully selected for premium viewing of projected images and video, and select styles offer quality viewing even in partially lit settings.

Styles

Matte Projector Screens: Matte projector screens have non-glossy, matte finish for smooth projected image and video viewing.

Wall Screen: Wall screen may refer to projection screens mounted on walls or to wall-mounted markerboards with projection-ready surface. A projection-ready markerboard can serve as a projector screen without the need for an additional fabric screen, creating a cost-effective functional setup in classroom, office, or lab.

Components

Adjustable Mounting Brackets: Adjustable mounting brackets connect to walls and have an adjustable depth to hold projection screens at a desired distance from the wall and surroundings. The adjustable depth allows projection screens to remain smooth, for uninterrupted viewing and undistorted images.

Auto-Stop Screen Motor: The motorized projection screens have auto-stop feature that stops when the screen is fully extended or retracted to prevent damage to the roller and motor mechanisms.

Double Hem: The hem of projection screens is double-stitched for reinforcement to prevent frayed edges and help maintain the smooth screen for quality viewing.

Locking Mechanism: Locking mechanism on projection screens enhances the steel roller and prevents the screen from tearing away from the roller for lasting secure assembly.

Masking Borders: Masking borders refer to the framing edges of projector screens. The masking borders are offered as an option on many projector screen styles and form a frame-like appearance to the screen by covering the edges along the sides.

Needle-Stitched Hem: The side hems of the projection screens are needle-stitched, ensuring classic hem detail and precision to reduce the risk of fraying from use.

Non-Adjustable Mounting Brackets: Non-adjustable mounting brackets have a fixed size and depth for positioning on walls at a desired height and securely holding a projection screen at a fixed distance from the wall behind it. The measurable distance allows users to determine if the bracket depth provides enough room to clear other objects in the area.

Steel Roller: The projection screens are almost all attached to durable steel rollers that ensure lasting quality hold with tear-resistant assembly. The screen rolls or retracts into the case and the steel roller keeps the screen within the assembly and supports the weight of the screen during use.

T-Bar Twist Clips: T-bar twist clips have an X-style scissor design for gripping the T-shaped lower edges of T-bars or T-irons. The slips are closed over the lower edge of the T-bar and provide lasting support for different uses including the twist clips for mounting projection screens.

T-Irons: T-irons or T-bars resemble an upside-down T, providing edges for gripping. The T-Bar Twist Clips and similar clip attachments have a scissor-like design for clamping over the T-style edges of the T-irons or T-bars and provide strong hold for projection screens.

Tripod Screen Stand: Select projection screens work with tripod stands for portable use. The tripod stand has three legs that stabilize the taller frame and the top supports a projection screen for versatile placement and use.

Construction Materials

Adjustable Wall Brackets: Adjustable wall brackets have a fixed height for fixed positioning and an adjustable depth to angle or position the screen around other objects in the area.

Friction-Free Projection Screen Case: Projection screens are composed of fabric and are subject to wear from use and storage. The projection screen cases offer friction-free storage for safe, lasting quality support.

Hanging Brackets: Hanging brackets mount to walls or ceilings and support projection screens for storage and viewing. The mounting brackets are easy to install, and contain hook-like attachments for quick projection screen setup.

One-Piece Steel Case: The one-piece steel case refers to the projection screen encasing. The use of a one-piece design reduces risk of broken parts and the steel construction provides lasting strength and appearance.

Rubber Vibration Insulator: Rubber vibration insulator enhances the projection screen casing to reduce noise from opening and closing the projection screen, particularly on the motorized screen designs.

Universal Hanging Brackets: Universal hanging brackets accommodate virtually any projection screen or projector, depending on the design, by offering standard sizing and connections that are relatively common for that particular product style.

Wall Mounts: Wall mounts attach to a wall and offer mounting of a projection screen with convenient hooks or other connectors that hold the screen encasing securely for premium viewing. The wall mounts allow the screen to be closed out of the way and stored in place for future use.

Features

Any-Angle Viewing: Projection screens that offer any-angle viewing have designs that reduce or eliminate keystone or image distortion. The design accommodates viewing from straight, below, or the sides making the screen ideal for groups and classrooms.

Balanced or Equal Light Reflection: The majority of our projector screens boast equal light reflection or balanced light reflection, indicating that the projector screen surface is finished in a way that provides light distribution when images are projected. The balanced reflecting surface improves image quality for uniform brightness and clarity.

Flame-Retardant: Flame-retardant fabrics are used to design the projection screens, resisting fire in the event of an accident or spark exposure.

Green Features: Green Features refer to environmentally friendly paints, finishes, processes, and the use of recycled materials in the production of select furniture and equipment.

Individually Tested: Projection screens are individually tested to ensure each screen is in high-quality working order before being sold and shipped to buyers at schools, libraries, and businesses.

Keystone: Keystone is an effect that occurs when a projector and projection screen are not properly aligned. The keystone effect is basically image distorting, often in a trapezoid-like angled shape rather than the desired square or rectangular shapes.

Keystone Eliminator: Some projector screens include a keystone eliminator to reduce distorting in projected images when the projector and screen are not properly aligned.

Maximum Width for Mounting Brackets: Mounting brackets indicate a maximum width for placement. The brackets are installed separately to walls and should not be further apart than the maximum allowable width to ensure best results and safe setup for use with projection screen.

Mildew-Resistant: The premium projection screen fabrics resist mildew. Moisture in environments and humid weather can be unavoidable; the mildew-resistant projection screens will stand up to exposure to the elements without mildew growth and stains.

Projector Screen Sizes: Projector screens come in a variety of sizes to suit different locations and needs. Among the variety of projector screens offered, we have sizes ranging up to 12-feet as well as smaller sizes.

Recycled materials: Many products are made with some or all recycled materials. These items are listed as having “Green Features” and detailed descriptions will specify that portions or all of the product design were made using recycled products.

Tear-Proof Design: The premium-quality designs of the projector screens include reinforced stitching and tear-proof assembly, reducing the risk of damage from frequent use. The tear-proof design includes a secure connection to the roller within the top case that resists the screen tearing from the enclosure. The designs also include double-stitched hems to reduce fraying at the edges.

Weather-Resistant: Weather resistant indicates the case or design can tolerate exposure to hot and cold weather environments as well as light wind or rain, but should not be confused with “waterproof” designs. Weather-resistant construction is not necessarily waterproof, but can protect the equipment in light rain such as during transport, setup, or event cleanup.

Zero to Low Emission Materials: Zero emission and low emission materials refer to the production materials and processes used in creating select products. These production materials do not discharge significant quantities of pollutants or other damaging substances making the designs greener, healthier, and more life-friendly.

110-120V Power: The motorized projection screens have 110-120V power supply meaning they can be plugged into standard outlets in the U.S. but would require a power convertor if used in Europe or other 220-240V power region.
