Professional All-Aluminum Housing
The Luna series screens have a sleek, white aluminum housing that is both durable and attractive. Depending on the size of the screen, the aluminum casing comes in square or hexagonal format. Our professional square housing allows the introduction of a rail mounting system which gives you the freedom to place the mounting brackets where you want.
Easy to Access Limit Switches
Clearly marked and easily accessible limit switch adjustment holes allow limit switch adjustments to be done in a snap. A special limit control tool is included with your screens to make this process as simple as possible.
Black Borders for Enhanced Contrast
It seems like a small feature to have black borders around the viewing area, but it should not be underestimated. Having black borders improve the perceived brightness and contrast of a projected image by surrounding the projected images in black. This adds both punch and brightness.
There are many manufactures of screens today that just use a black metal bar to create the black border on the bottom of the screen. At EluneVision, we believe this is completely unacceptable. The reason why the bottom black border is so important is:
- it is extremely difficult to have the projected image fit perfectly within the viewing area. So a bit of stray light will hit the black border. The border absorbs the light so that contrast and brightness is enhanced
- the metal bars used by other manufactures are very small and narrow. This creates an unbalanced image as the top borders are bigger than the bottom border
- the metal bars typically are more reflective than an actual black border which means that the light will reflect off the metal bar, thus decreasing the perceived brightness and contrast
Heavy Bottom Metal Bar to Keep the Screen Flat, Year after Year
A weighty steel bottom bar is used despite the extra costs added to the manufacturing of the screens. The extra weight of the steel bar keeps the screen flat and wrinkle free for years of use. Unlike our competitors, the Luna series screens, through the use of steel bar and heavy duty materials, will be in great condition after years of use.
Triple-Layered, Fiberglass-Enforced Screen Material
The Luna series uses an extremely durable, heavy duty, triple layered material. The first layer is consists of the optical viewing surface, which is available in any one of our five materials. The second layer is a thick fiberglass layer giving the material strength and durability. The last layer is a fully black material that is opaque to all visible light.
At 1mm thick the middle fiberglass layer is extremely strong and resilient. This means that material is extremely resistant to having creases or folds and will easily last a life time. Not many manufacturers are using such thick material due to cost and most materials in the marketplace today will be paper thin and can be easily punctured with even a pencil.
The light absorbing black backing effectively stops light loss through the back of the screen. This results in more of the projected image reflecting back through the audience. The increase in projected light not only improves contrast levels, colour saturation, and brightness, it also allows for the projector to be run at a lower brightness setting, saving precious lamp life. Most projection materials sold today do not have the black backing and many manufactures claim they have opaque material. In reality, when the materials are held up to the sun, the light will pass right through showing the loss of light.
