Elite Adds Slow Retraction Mechanism to Manual Projection Screens  Print E-mail

If you’ve used a manual projector screen before, you’ve experienced how much of a pain it is to get the screen to roll back up.  When it works flawlessly, things are fine.  But when things go wrong, you’ve got one of two scenarios.   The first is that you could pull too hard and damage the screen or spring mechanism.  The second is that the screen could retract too quickly, knock over and even damage the installation.

Elite’s Slow Retraction Mechanism (SRM) is designed to eliminate these problems, by allowing the screen to slowly retract back into the housing.  You don’t even need to hold onto the handle, just let it go and the screen will safely and securely slide back up.

The new screens also feature an auto-lock mechanism for different height settings, and black masking borders.  They’re available in a variety of sizes, from 85” all the way up to 120” diagonal measurements.  The screen has a 1.1 MaxWhite gain and is simple to clean.  Elite’s SRM screens can be ordered now through authorized dealers.  No pricing information is available at this time.
