When you want to add that ‘wow’ factor to your outdoor home theatre experience or business presentations, you need something extra. This pull down projector screen is part of the Manual B series by Elite Screens, a company that has been a worldwide leader in manufacturing of projector screens since 2004. They are driven by the objective of provide superior quality products at reasonable prices.
What really impressed us is that the Elite Screens Manual B series screen looks classy but is extremely budget friendly.

There’s a multi-layer weave that adds more quality to the screen.
The Elite Screens Manual Pull Down Projector Screen measures 100 inches diagonally which means it is big enough to give you a mini theater like experience or it can be used for a business presentation in hall comprising 100 or more people.
The screen features a fully black colored back so it blocks the light and allows you to better view the content displayed on the front screen. It comes with one inch side black borders that defines the look of the projector screen. Besides being affordable, we also appreciate the fact that the Elite projector screen is mildew resistant; as a result it is highly durable.
The screen requires little maintenance, and it can be easily cleansed with mild soap and water. The product comes with a nice sturdy case so you can roll up the projector when not in use. The case also comes handy to take the projector screen from one place to another.
Setting up the screen does not need a professional and anyone with some basic knowledge about projectors can do this with ease. The screen can be easily mounted on the wall or hung up in the ceiling with the help of brackets that must be bought separately.
The screen comes with a two-inch interval automatic lock system that allows users to personalize the height settings as per their requirements. The slow pull back method further ensures a safe return of the screen when not in use.
