Matte White Materials FAQ's

Q: What is the difference between Elite’s MaxWhite® Fiberglass (FG) and SpectraWhite Fiberglass (FG)? Why is fiberglass backing important?
Q: What is the difference between Elite’s MaxWhite® Fiberglass (FG) and SpectraWhite Fiberglass (FG)? Why is fiberglass backing important?

Elite’s MaxWhite® FG and Spectra White FG are very comparable as they both are self-supporting matte white front projection screen surfaces with fiberglass backing. Having a fiberglass backing is beneficial as the embedded fiber glass improves rigidity which results in a more stiff material. Thus, the fiberglass backing provides the flattest possible surface a non-tensioned screen can offer. Additionally, the fiber glass backing eliminates any side curling non-tensioned materials are susceptible to, especially under cold temperatures. Both the MaxWhite® FG and SpectraWhite FG will provide an excellent quality image in light controlled environments. The main difference between the materials is that the MaxWhite® FG utilizes a more neutral white material for better white levels. Both the Spectra White FG and MaxWhite® FG have viewing angles of 180° (90° left and right). The wide diffusion uniformity on both the materials maintain luminance levels throughout the entire surface. The MaxWhite® FG is also offered on many more of or products, whereas the SpectraWhite FG is solely available on the Starling and Starling Tension. The Spectra White FG material is also slightly thicker than the MaxWhite® FG.

Q: What is the difference between Elite’s MaxWhite® and MaxWhite® FG screen materials?
Q: What is the difference between Elite’s MaxWhite® and MaxWhite® FG screen materials?

Elite Screens’ MaxWhite® and MaxWhite® FG are excellent screen materials for front projection presentations. The materials have a multi-layer weave and textured surface coating that offer perfect diffusion uniformity, color reproduction, and black and white contrast. Both have a 1.1 gain that allows for 180° viewing angles (90° left and right) and are black-backed which avoids light penetration. They are also easy to clean, mildew resistant, and GreenGuard® Gold UL 2818 certified. The key difference between the MaxWhite® and MaxWhite® FG is that the MaxWhite® FG has a fiber glass backing. This is beneficial as the embedded fiber glass improves rigidity which results in a more stiff material. Thus, the MaxWhite® FG provides the flattest possible surface a non-tensioned screen can offer. Additionally, the fiber glass backing eliminates any side curling non-tensioned materials are susceptible to, especially under cold temperatures. Lastly, the MaxWhite® FG is also flame retardant and complies with NFPA 701 Standards.

Q: What is the difference between Tensioned and Non-Tensioned Screen Material?
Q: What is the difference between Tensioned and Non-Tensioned Screen Material?

Tension material provides a flatter screen surface and for better uniformity and even light distribution without waving or curving on the projection surface. These problems could be caused by temperature variations in multiple layer materials. Newer non-tensioned materials such as our MaxWhite® or MaxWhite® FG have greatly reduced occurrences of this flaw to the point of arguably matching its flatness in some cases. Some prefer non-tensioned due to aesthetics but tension still generally has superior flatness.

Q: What is the viewing angle on the MaxWhite® material?
Q. What is the viewing angle on the MaxWhite® material?

The viewing angle of the MaxWhite® material is 180°.

Manual SRM Pro Series FAQ’s

Q: Does the Manual SRM Pro need to be completely pulled all the way down or can it be partially pulled down.
Q: Does the Manual SRM Pro need to be completely pulled all the way down or can it be partially pulled down.

The Manual SRM can be pulled down partially and does not need to be completely deployed.

Q: What is the advantage of the “SRM” (Slow Retract Mechanism) over the regular kind?
Q: What is the advantage of the “SRM” (Slow Retract Mechanism) over the regular kind?

The SRM mechanism allows the screen material to retract back into its metal casing unassisted without getting damaged by a rapid ascent which would happen in a regular manual projection screen. For this reason, the SRM prolongs the operational lifespan of the screen. It also acts as a safety feature since the rapid ascent of the spring (non-SRM)mechanisms of older manual screens can occur with enough force to unseat the screen from its installation causing it to fall.

Q: What is SRM?
Q: What is SRM?

SRM is a special Screen Retract Mechanism which allows the manual screen to be retracted slowly back into the screen’s housing without the need to hold on to the handle.

Q: Can the Manual SRM series screen lock at any position?
Q: Can the Manual SRM series screen lock at any position?

No, the Manual SRM series screen can be locked in 2 cm intervals.

General Manual Screens FAQ’s

Q: What type of screw size does Elite Screens recommend when installing a Spectrum, VMAX2, or a Manual Screen?
Q: What type of screw size does Elite Screens recommend when installing a Spectrum, VMAX2, or a Manual Screen?

Although each installation is unique, the screw size we recommend and provide is M550mm. We have found that this screw size will provide enough length to support a Spectrum, VMAX2, or Manual screen installation in most instances. For drywall installations, the Φ1040mm wall anchors (also included) should be installed along with the M5*50mm screws. **Please not that there are many other factors to consider when installing a screen such as the location of the wall studs and thickness of the wall. Each circumstance is different. If you are unsure about the stability of the wall or ceiling in regards to the screen installation, please contact a professional installer. Elite Screens will not be held responsible or be otherwise liable for faulty installations.

Q: Should I use a standard top masking or an extra drop masking border?
Q: Should I use a standard top masking or an extra drop masking border?

It depends on how high you want to hang the screen. If you are planning on a high ceiling or in-ceiling installation, use a product with an extra black masking border like E24 (24″ drop) or E30 (30″ drop) model. Aside from that, our general product lines will accommodate your typical home or commercial presentation room ceiling heights.  All of our manual and electric screens are suitable for wall or ceiling installations.

Q: Repositioning the height settings has always been a problem to me. What is the best way to do it?
Q: Repositioning the height settings has always been a problem to me. What is the best way to do it?

Give a light jerk in a downward motion to disengage the locking cam. This will allow the spring to draw the screen material up. Guide the screen as it retracts until it has reached its preferred height setting, then pull it down slightly and ease the material until it has locked into place.

Q: Can I flush mount my Manual screen directly to the ceiling?
Q: Can I flush mount my Manual screen directly to the ceiling?

No, but Elite provides D RINGS attached to each end cap for a suspended ceiling installation.

Q: Is it difficult to remove this screen from its installation and set it up somewhere else when remodeling my home/business?
Q: Is it difficult to remove this screen from its installation and set it up somewhere else when remodeling my home/business?

Elite’s Manual series of projection screens are completely self contained and can be easily removed from their present fixtures. All that is required is to lift the screen casing upward until its mounting attachment disengages from the wall screws (wall installation) or the D-rings disengage from the ceiling hooks (ceiling installation). The screen can then be carried to another mounting location without any need for disassembly.

Q : My screen will not retract, what should I do?
My screen will not retract, what should I do?

First, check to see if your screen can be pulled further down an additional 1-2 inches. If so, pull the screen down towards your stomach at a 45 degree angle and release to retract. If this procedure does not work, the screen will need to be re-tensioned. Your manual screen can easily be re-tensioned, please see the instructions HERE. Please contact our Technical Support dept. for technical support at techsupport@elitescreens.com

Q : Is there a tripod stand for the manual screen?
Is there a tripod stand for the manual screen?

No, the manual pull-down screen screen does not have the option to be put on a tripod stand.

Q: Can the manual screen be converted into an electric screen?
Q: Can the manual screen be converted into an electric screen?

No, the manual screen cannot be converted into an electric screen.

Q: Can I use my manual/electric Elite projection screen as a window shade to block the sunlight?
Q: Can I use my manual/electric Elite projection screen as a window shade to block the sunlight?

No, Elite manual and electric projection screens are not designed for use as a window curtain and should never be exposed to direct sunlight.  Prolonged exposure to solar radiation will destroy synthetic materials and such damage is not covered by our standard warranty.

Q: My manual screen is stuck and unable to retract back into its case. What can I do to retract again?
Q: My manual screen is stuck and unable to retract back into its case. What can I do to retract again?

If you are not able to pull the screen down two inches when attempting to retract it, give the screen a quick yank downwards with a little bit of force. Please be sure to not stand directly under the housing of the unit when yanking down on the screen.
