Our screens have two main
components: a heavy-duty, black PVC framework and a
white projection screen surface attached to it via
bungee cables. The AIRSCREEN
is a German-manufactured and imported world-class
product and is currently used widely all over Europe,
the USA and Asia. We introduced it to Africa 4 years ago
in Botswana, Zimbabwe, Namibia and now South Africa for
the last 8 months.
The screen is erected (like a jumping castle) by air
that is blown into the main frame by a special low-noise
and energy saving air-blower. This blower is the only
electrical component of this screen and it also uses a
normal household electrical connection. A complete
inflation and setup takes anything between 30 min. to
one hour, depending on the size of the screen.
Drive-ins are also a good way to reach people, and we
use wide, open spaces for these types of events.
The screen's stability is made
possible by anchoring it to the ground with eight ropes
tied to each top and bottom corner of the main frame.
This anchoring system is supported by four anchoring
weights. Each of the four weights are positioned
adjacent to each corner of the screen - two at the front
and two at the back. Such weights, depending on the size
of the AIRSCREEN, weigh from 20-50kg
each for small screens and 1 ton each for the big
screen. We have our own weights for the small screen and
we usually hire 1 ton water containers for the big
screen. A vehicle can also be used to replace the 1 ton
