    www.metroplan.co.uk

    you want the "widescreen pro-screen" range.

    Call them direct, ignore prices on the website (u need to set up an account with them, then you'll receive 40% discount). The 7' wide one will prolly set u back under £200.

    I have the 8' wide one, and it's great. My only complaint would be that the material isn't as thick as my old draper. But it does a good job:D

    can't sleep either then smurfin ? I lay awake wondering where i will get a screen from. i read a post (think it may have been yours) saying they offer this 40% and will sell to us, so i looked at their web site. no sign of any discount there so i e-mailed em. i got a polite response, but it was only to tell me they are only set up for trade and would try to suggest someone else who could help.

    but if its going over your fireplace, and your chimney breast is only 5ft wide, then a permanent screen might not be an option.

    Glad to help :)

    I ordered one of them before Christmas and, although it doesn't tell you on the site, it turns out to be from Projecta (www.projecta.nl).
