Building Electric Screen



Hi All.

Newbie first post here...

Right, I bought DRH Screen fabric and made my own 3m fixed static screen.

All is perfect, however I might have to move house and share with my partner in the next few months and her house doesn't have space for the screen.

Does anyone know if I can take my fabric and build my own remote control operated electric screen unith WITH black masking a la ellie top of the line.

I build my screen for £100. and I'd be willing to pay another £300 to build it.

I want it tensioned and weighted.

Anyone know of any parts etc?

You'll need a good tubular motor.

Somfy make very good motors that are used by a wide rnage of screen manufacturers. They make quite a range, with options for basic end stops (like normal screens) or multiple stop points (for multi-aspect screens).
