Harkness launches Foldable Digital 220 screens

Jan 30, 2012

Harkness Screens announced the launch of Foldable Perlux® Digital 220 screens manufactured from its U.S. plant in Virginia. Foldable Perlux Digital retains all the features of the Perlux Digital line, with the added capability of being folded rather than rolled.

“With the costs of packaging and transportation continuing to rise, we recognized a need to assist our customers in managing budgets and launched our Foldable Perlux Digital 140 and 180 screens last year to provide cinema operators and indeed installers with a more cost-effective digital projection screen solution,” said Andrew Robinson, managing director of Harkness Screens. “Adding Perlux Digital 220 to our foldable range means that we have our highest-gain white screen available in a format that will help dramatically lower packing and transportation costs compared to traditional screen distribution. Aligned to the cost savings, these screens, which ship inside a box, are much more easily maneuverable into the auditorium, making the installation process potentially less awkward and expensive.”

Harkness says its Foldable Perlux Digital screens typically realize packaging cost savings of 66% and transportation savings of 20% against standard delivery methods. When installed using Harkness’ prescribed installation techniques, Foldable Perlux screens are guaranteed to provide a crease-free, seamless projection surface. They are currently the only foldable gain screens available in the world.
