The Screen Works introduces The Permanent Collection of home theater projection screens.

The Screen Works launches The Permanent Collection of tensioned fixed-frame projection screens for home theater, office & other applications.

Chicago, IL - August 5, 2005 - The Screen Works has expanded their line of projection screens to include The Permanent Collection of tensioned screens for home theater or office applications. Three different PermScreen models - the PREMIER, the CLASSIC and the ST offer a selection of wall -mounted styles suitable for casual media rooms, sophisticated cinema -style home theaters or office meeting spaces. Each model is offered in seven standard sizes and is available in both video and HDTV formats. The Screen Works will exhibit the new Permanent Collection at CEDIA (Custom Electronic Design & Installation Association), booth #4123. CEDIA will be held at the RCA Dome in Indianapolis during September.

The PermScreen PREMIER is a cinema -styled projection screen suited to home theater enthusiasts. It features a 3"W x 1 -3/8"D black powder -coated frame and beveled edge that adds dimension without imposing shadows on the viewing area. The surface attaches to the back of the frame with Velcro for a completely flat -tensioned viewing surface.

The PermScreen CLASSIC mounts onto a wall or into a recessed wall opening to integrate with versatile room décor. The black powder -coated, matte finished frame is 2"W x 1"D. The surface attaches to the back of frame with Velcro® to tension the surface for a flawlessly flat image area.

The PermScreen ST is an economical option for the casual home or office setting. Featuring 1" square single tube aluminum frame construction, the screen mounts onto a wall, into a cabinet or wall enclosure. The surface attaches to front of frame with Velcro or snaps, and a 2" black binding surrounds the flat tensioned screen surface.

All frame models are constructed of durable aluminum and mounting hardware is included. Front or rear projection surfaces are available, and optional ProMat theater -style black velvet trim is available on some models.

"The Permanent Collection combines The Screen Works' tradition and standards of workmanship with attractively designed framing", explains David Hull, National Account Manager for The Screen Works. "With home theaters ranging from high -end cinema -style settings to comfortable family rooms The Permanent Collection offers choices to suit the setting. In addition, our three different models allow businesses to effectively integrate The Permanent Collection in lobbies, conference rooms, worship centers, museums or educational facilities".
