Introducing the All-New Acumen™

Our most versatile surface mounted projection screen yet


Draper Acumen Surface-Mount Retractable Screens

Before designing its new line of surface-mount, roll-up screens, Draper listened to the market and saw three key demands: for flexibility in screen materials to accommodate different lighting conditions, for motorized options that don't require nearby power, and for ever-increasing size. Acumen hits all the buttons, accommodating all of the company's free-hanging and tab-tensioned materials (including its premium TecVision line of traditional and ALR surfaces), providing motorized options that include a battery-rechargeable version that goes 500 cycles between charges, and hitting screen sizes up to 18 feet wide. The simple but elegant, durable extruded aluminum casing was also designed with ease of installation and access for maintenance in mind.

Target Markets: classrooms, higher ed/large venue, corporate, conference rooms, telemedicine, hospitality, worship, museum/exhibit, home theater

Projection technology has improved drastically so it can be successful in more conditions than ever before. Along with that has come a need in the market for a surface mounted screen that offers larger sizes and still looks elegant below the ceiling.

That’s why the new Acumen™ from Draper® was designed for a combination of maximum versatility and elegance.

All Draper free-hanging and tab-tensioned viewing surfaces including TecVision® are available with the Acumen, so you can enhance contrast, brighten the image, or reject ambient light depending on room and lighting conditions.

The Acumen's elegant extruded aluminum housing has a removable fascia for installation and service access. Stunning white powder coated finish complements any room design.

The Acumen is available up to 18 feet wide and with a variety of motor options. The optional rechargeable battery motor goes up to 500 cycles between charges, in sizes to 10’ wide. It is also available as a manual screen.

Floating mounting brackets allow quick and easy installation no matter where the wall studs or ceiling supports are.

The Acumen comes with an extended 7-year warranty-it’s that good! The Acumen will begin shipping in August 2020.
