This manual pull-down screen is designed for years of trouble-free viewing. It's ideal for classrooms and meeting rooms, and is also a good option for a family room theater. The screen provides a smooth, uniform picture that's a big improvement over projecting onto a wall.
This 106" screen features Da-Lite's Matte White surface, which is the most versatile and uniform-looking surface for front projection when you can control your room's ambient light level.

Da-Lite 79040 Model C Screen Reviews
Preliminary info from the manufacturer
Overview: The Da-Lite Model C is a manual pull-down projection screen that is ideal for use in a large conference room or training room. It is equipped with the Matte White screen fabric. It has a powder-coated white, 21-gauge octagonal steel case. Permanently lubricated steel ball bearings, combined with nylon bushings and a heavy-duty spring assembly give you smooth, dependable operation.
Viewing Area: The screen has a 106" (diagonal) viewing area with a 16:9 aspect ratio, perfect for viewing your HDTV programs and movies. The viewing area is 52" high and 92" wide.
Screen Surface: The Matte White screen surface is the most versatile and uniform for front projection when you have some control over ambient light. It has a gain factor of 1.0, which means the amount of light projected on the screen is returned to the viewer at the same brightness. It provides wide viewing angles (+/- 60° from center) and perfect uniformity, while maintaining accurate color or black and white reproduction. The screen surface is washable with mild soap and water, flame retardant, and mildew resistant.
Installation: This Da-Lite projection screen can be wall-mounted, ceiling-mounted, or suspended from the ceiling on hooks. If wall-mounted, the screen should be mounted to a wall stud or some reinforcement within the wall. Concrete or brick walls require special fasteners and anchors. If ceiling-mounted, you should ensure that the ceiling has adequate reinforcement to attach the screen brackets or hook anchors.
Note: The screen does NOT include the hardware for securing it to the wall or ceiling.
