Projection Screens: Draper’s 115-year-plus history of innovation continues with TecVision, a premium line of viewing surfaces unsurpassed in image clarity, uniformity, performance, and overall quality. All of Draper TecVision formulations are 8K ready, certified by the Imaging Science Foundation for color accuracy, and available in optically seamless sizes up to 69-feet wide. If you can see the seam in one of Draper’s optically seamless TecVision screens from five feet away, they’ll take it back—no questions asked! That’s how confident they are in TecVision, and how committed they are to providing the screen solution you need for your specific situation—whether you are dealing with ambient light, a weak projector, mission-critical detail, an extra wide seating area, or other issues—there is a TecVision for that. TecVision is available on any Draper permanently-tensioned or tab-tensioned motorized screen model. Click here for more information.

Draper’s MPL and Scissor Lift are both UL-certified, and the Scissor Lift is the first and only scissor lift certified to the new UL 2442 and CSA C22.2 No. 60065-03 standards.

Most people know the Draper story: Founded in 1902 as a window shade manufacturer, providing daylighting and solar control solutions to schools; the development of Draper’s first projection screen, the V Screen, in the 1950s; their eventual growth to one of the largest projection screen manufactures in the world; the addition of lifts, videoconferencing solutions and more to the Draper line; their remaining a family-owned company in the same small town where they started out; how they’ve never had a layoff. Ever.
But one part of the story that can get lost in the “since 1902” line is this: Draper hasn’t just been around for a long time, gathering dust; they have a long and proud tradition of product and process innovation. For instance, did you know they were the first projection screen manufacturer to develop and patent the “case now screen later” concept? Or that over the past few years they spent millions researching and developing the award-winning TecVision line of premium projection viewing surfaces? Every day the Draper staff of engineers and chemists are looking at ways to improve products and developing new solutions.
At Draper, they have rooted in their history and community, but reaching ahead for future innovations in all of the Draper product lines.
