Known for their made-to-order products that have been the cornerstone of the company’s business, Da-Lite admitted that it understands integrators and their clients sometimes need product a little bit faster than what the custom-made process is capable of producing. And as such, the company announced it will begin stocking a new electric screen series intended to be available for same-day shipping.
The company’s new DescenderPro ceiling recessed electric screen will be available in pre-made 16:9 and 16:10 formats in sizes ranging from 106-inches to 16-inches diagonal. Additionally, the DescenderPro series will be available in four different surface options: HD Progressive 0.9, HD Progressive 1.1, Da-Mat, and Matte White.
“We are excited to provide another option for customers in our ceiling recessed electric screen portfolio,” Wendy Cox, Director of Product Management for Da-Lite, said in a statement. “The DescenderPro features standard low-voltage control and a silent motor as well as sliding brackets for an easy installation. It is a compact-housing electric screen with a few upgraded features. For example, the sliding brackets featured on the DescenderPro are limited in comparison to the Advantage line, but still offer quite a bit of flexibility when installing into a ceiling.”
Da-Lite explained that the black drop for tensioned screens will 12-inch visible and preset while the black drop for the non-tensioned will be 2-inch visible and preset with a total 12-inch built into the housing. The internal junction box, silent motor, and low-voltage control are all standard.
The DefenderPro screens began shipping on Tuesday, November 13 and are covered by the company’s five-year warranty program.
