Harkness extends Foldable Perlux screens to European market

June 27, 2013

Harkness Screens announced the launch of Foldable Perlux® Digital screens manufactured from its European plant in Amilly, France. 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 across Europe, we recognized a need to assist our customers in managing budgets,” said Tony Dilley, head of international sales at Harkness Screens. “Adding foldable options of our Perlux Digital 140, 180 and 220 products to our range means that we now have white gain screens 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,”

According to Harkness, Foldable Perlux Digital screens typically realize packaging cost savings of 66% and transportation savings of 20% against standard delivery methods. Foldable Perlux Digital screens can be shipped by standard carriers on overnight despatch, significantly reducing delivery times.

Harkness’ Perlux Digital brand (foldable and rolled) gain screens include both 2D and 3D (non-polarized light) screen surfaces for any size theatre, with foldable screens available up to 33m x 14m in size. For more information, visit www.harkness-screens.com.
