Yes, they are perforated.  There are some tradeoffs between perforated and woven but both can be exceptionally good.  Picture quality I like the perforated better if not sitting too close to see the perforations and you can get a screen material for your room conditions with a perforated screen.  The down side of a perforated screen is speaker placement, it is usually best to keep the speakers ~12" behind the screen and a little EQ to boost the high frequencies is needed.  The EQ is not a big deal and Stewart ships an EQ with the screen.  However, most of the time it is not needed as many of todays processors can do the EQ.

 

As with any screen you have to decide which works best for a given application.

Don't think I can use a perforated screen then as there is no way I can get 12" clearance between the front of my speakers and the back of the screen.

You can by with a little less like 6-8" but if you are looking for less than that woven is a better choice, you just need a brighter projector:-)
