Introducing Manual Grande® the Large-Venue 180" Manual Pull Up/Down, Wall/Ceiling Projector Screen

Introducing Manual Grande® the Large-Venue 180" Manual Pull Up/Down, Wall/Ceiling Projector Screen


Garden Grove, California. August 3, 2016 Elite Screens Inc., one of America’s leading projection screen manufacturers, is proud to announce the launch of its Manual Grande® series which is a retractable non-electric projection screen for large venue presentations.

It is designed to accommodate large group presentations and dwarfs other non-electric retractable projection screens currently available on the market today.  Its manual operation incorporates a bead chain clutch system similar to the mechanism used in controlling large window drapes as seen in large resorts and other plus-sized hospitality settings. As opposed to the limited stop capabilities of most manual screens, the swift rolling mechanism on the Manual Grande® allows the material to stop at any point of rise or drop to perfectly suit whatever the presenter needs.  

The MaxWhite® 1.1 Gain Front Projection material has a wide viewing angle to accommodate large gatherings.  It is also black-backed to eliminate light penetration for enhanced brightness while the black masking borders on all sides mitigate projector overshoot while enhancing perceived visual contrast.  Another important fact is that this material is GREENGUARD® and GREENGUAD® Gold  (UL 2818) certified for safe indoor air quality emissions.

The housing is of a durable aluminum construction. It is moisture resistant and available in black or white colors. This design is specifically crafted for large room presentations, classrooms, training facilities, lecture halls, and other large venue applications.  It ships fully assembled and is easy to install using the most basic tools.
