If you have painted MDF then I presume you you can go with a fixed frame screen. If so the two I think are nice just now are OWL's own fixed frame unit and, of course, the Stewart Luxus Delux screenwall.

I'd guess that 6ft wides are going to be from £700 upwards but need to check. If you email me at convergant I can give you an accurate quote later.

If you are looking for manual or electric screens then there are many others to consider, along with how you would want to control the thing.

Mark,

You could go the DIY route - see my website.

Also, check out the screens forums

Hi Mark,

Some have tried using curtain blackout and covering say a painted MDF.

Personally, I cut off the screen from my old roll up, and stapled it to the plasterboard wall, got it perfectly flat, then over stapling black carpet to frame it.

These screens seem ok :-

i bought my screen from Owl video , its a 6ft wide screen fixed with velvet boarders and the screen materical is equivelent to the stewart studiotek 1.3, it retails at £800.00.


Where do u live? i have an unfinished screen project if your interested, which includes a quality screen material (i think it 1.00 gain)
an industrial stapler and 3 meters of Black velvet, if your interested you can have them £50.00 + postage

cheers

The Perlux 1.4 gain I use is viewed at around 3-4 metres. No problems. Any closer and you do see the screen structure on white areas of an image (a kind of dimpled effect)
