    I have my heart set on a 106" Sapphire electric screen but would mean channeling in to the side walls to accommodate the case.If i had 10cm or so more width then i could have squeezed it in.

    The next size down is 92" which seems a big reduction to me.

    Are there any other screens out there around 100" that i may just be able to squeeze in?

    Thanks

    Are Screen International screens any good?

    They make an electric 100" screen that would fit perfectly

    You haven't mentioned the maximum width screen you could fit?

    I was previously looking at sapphire screens amongst a few others, but ended up going with grandview tab-tensioned cyber series.

    I could have fit the 106", but went with the 92" when I realised how big that was. Obviously depends on viewing distance, but from 3 metres I am really pleased with the 92" screen size.

    The maximum case width would be around 2450mm.

    It would have to be electric or manual pull down.I will still have a tv behind it so a fixed screen is not an option.

    I think i will end up with a 100" maximum.

    I will take another look at 92" as i could always adjust the viewing distance.

    I had a demo of a 106" and was amazed.That is why i had my heart set on one

    I've gone from a 92" to 106" screen, I never had any size problems with the the 92", it's far bigger than any 55-65" TV .

    I bought this as I was in exactly the same position. Although I had slightly more width.

    SK100XHW-E12 Elite Screens Elite Screens 221 UK Price £310.54

    The mounting options aren't the best in the world if you need to ceiling mount. I ended up making some "L" brackets so that I could use the wall mount option.

    Regards

    Happy to put a tape measure across it and give you the actual width if you need.

    Regards

    They look interesting, I also see they do a grey version.

    NP - Already measured :)

    2510mm width of case but then needs approx 20mm for the side exit power cable on the left hand side as you look at the screen.

    We can supply customised screens, that mean that you can fit them into the exact space you have. These can be electric, tab tensioned, fixed etc, as an example we could do an electric screen (different materials including white or grey material) that has a case 2450mm wide, giving a viewable width of 228cm which would be around 103" diagonal (16:9)

    Please let me know if you need any more information:)
