The new range of perforated fixed frame screens from Grandview now allow you to install your on / in wall speakers behind the screen without any loss of sound. The perfect install for any permanent or dedicated cinema room, which will give a great cinematic experiance.
The acoustically transparent fixed screen material is specially woven with a low gain of 1.1 to allow the sound to travel through yet not alter the colour reproduction of the movie. This is kept under high tension by a unique means found only by grandview screens.
Steel bars are inserted into the looped seem that runs round the edge of the material, which is then stretched behind the pop studs making the screen very tought evenly around the screen.
Grandview Cyber Acoustically Transparent Fixed Frame Screen
The frame design is made of a curved aluminium with black velvet finish that absorbs any stray light from overlapping the picture.
There are various sizes of screens starting from 6ft all the way to a 10ft screen.

When looking for a fixed frame screen, there are a few things you need to look for.
1. The Gain
This is a very important key to know when buying a fixed frame screen. The higher the gain, the more reflection you will get. So for home cinema, you want to get a low gain from 1 – 1.3. Anything higher and will saturate the colours on the picture.
If the screen is going to be used for home cinema, using a home cinema projector then the material that would be best used would be matte white.
3. How the material is mounted to the frame
There are many different ways in which the screen is mounted to the frame. Some use velcro, (which doesn’t keep the screen tought. Another way is done by pop studs going around the screen, this is certainly better than velcro, but can sometimes show light leakage around the screen in between each pop stud.
Grandview Cyber are one of the best fixed frame screens for the money. It uses a low gain of 1, comes in a matte white material and very easy to install.
The cyber range of fixed frame screens uses pop studs as well as steel bars which are inserted into a looped seem that runs round the edge of the material. The bars are then stretched and fixed behind the pop studs, causing the material to be pulled evenly from all four sides, making the material very tought and shows no light leakage.
The frame also has a black velvet finish, to stop any light reflection coming from the picture.

The Tab Tensioned screen is one of many screens that they do.
Unlike a standard screen, a Tab Tension screen has a flexible material so that it can be pulled taught from all sides. The Grandview Cyber projector screens have a unique ratchet mechanism at each end of weighted bar so that the tensioning strings can be easily adjusted. The US made material is optimised for home cinema use, producing a high contrast and uniform reflectivity. A black PVC backing prevents light leakage so that the screen can be positioned in front of a window.
