Torrent™ is a large-venue, ceiling mounted, electric roller screen. Torrent offers corporate campuses, educational institutions, houses of worship, and even large residences the option for a recessed roller screen with image width capabilities up to seventeen feet. Unlike many competing offerings, Stewart ensures a substantially reinforced roller system to handle not just traditional aspect ratios, but also can be customized with plenty of extra black drop above the image area so that, even with high ceilings, the image can be perfectly centered.

The innovative design features a self-finishing ceiling flange for clean lines. The dust plate removes easily for total access to the roller system and control connections during installation and clips back into place for a clean, slotted appearance from below. The entire case requires only 9-1/4” above the ceiling, allowing it to fit more applications than previous versions, and takes up less space than most competing large-venue screen systems. Available with virtually all Stewart Reference Standard screen materials, Torrent is a giant step forward in install-ability and visual appearance.
