- Lab tested and scientifically proven to effectively reduce exterior noise, a necessary element in creating the perfect presentation environment

Torrance, CA and Atlanta, GA (CEDIA) – September 09, 2009 Stewart Filmscreen Corporation®, the industry leader in precision projection screen technologies for the residential and commercial markets, today announced the AcoustiShade™ (patents pending)., their first window treatment product designed to control noise and black out sunlight in residential applications, providing a convenient and beautiful solution for dealers and designers.

Stewart's exclusive AcoustiShade is the first window treatment that effectively controls both incoming light and distracting noise coming through windows. Complimenting Stewart’s existing line of roller screens, the AcoustiShade has been designed for any residential or commercial application where noise and sunlight control is necessary. Who better than Stewart in knowing the importance of achieving the perfect display experience? The AcoustiShade is just another way that Stewart can help achieve the best possible image in any environment, under any circumstance.

Window openings are typically a building’s weakest link for noise and light infiltration. Traditional shade systems offer no remedy for noise contamination. For this reason, Stewart’s acoustical window treatments are needed to reduce outside-to-inside noise contamination while also controlling even the slightest amount of outside light that can detract from the viewing experience.

The AcoustiShade is comprised of three main elements: a sound attenuating blackout layer that keeps light and exterior noise from entering the display area, a decorative face fabric that reduces noise resonance, and an air space with proven acoustical benefit. And, unlike standard black-out-only shades typically available, Stewart’s offers a unique single motor rolling baton system (Stewart Filmscreen Patent Pending) that elegantly deploys both the sound attenuating black-out layer and the decorative fabric. The single motor design also lowers the height of the case profile and reduces manufacturing costs.

Stewart Filmscreen’s Patent Pending Magnetic Blackout & Attenuation Assist (MBAA) ensures a tight seal on two sides between the shade and side chambers that not only holds the shade fabric more firmly, completely seals outside light and helps further reduce exterior noise, but also stops both cold and hot air drafts from the outside, insulating them from the interior space.

The AcoustiShade is engineered to be simple to install and easy to operate with Stewart Filmscreen’s Quick Stall mounting option that allows for the imperfections found in any finished window system. It is delivered fully pre-assembled allowing the installer to simply remove the shade system from its shipping container, place it into the window with out further adjustments, and make the necessary electrical connections. Once securely mounted and properly wired, the shade is immediately and fully operable.

The AcoustiShade provides a stylish, cost effective solution to soundproofing some of the most difficult parts of your room. The AcoustiShade is available now in a variety of colors and virtually any custom size. Price is variable and dependent size and type of material used.

The AcoustiShade can be seen in Booth #837 at the Georgia World Congress Center during the CEDIA Expo from September 10-13 in Atlanta, GA. Stewart Filmscreen invites CEDIA dealers and members of the press to learn more about the AcoustiShade and many other products they will be exhibiting at the show.
