Is it a fixed frame or pull down?

What is the width of the Beamax screen housing?

I have maximum diagonal space of 80". I want to know the max size screen I can get in it.

Thanks.

Actually it is being returned. The housing is/was damaged and now the screen in finally up and in use, I cannot get it to retract....

Very odd :(

Have spoken to discounttv and I am returning it as best I can in exchange for a credit note as moving in three weeks so not bothered about either fixing a new screen up or storing it until move is complete.

Seriously I have tried to retract it for hours and it simply wont go back up!!!

ooo eer missus :devil:

Picture does not quite highlight damage and problem, which I think has upset the roller/mechanism.

i feel for you capt.
i too received a damaged beamax screen but i've since re-ordered another one with delivery direct from beamax so hoping that'll sort out the possibility of damage from city link.....
many thanks to discounttv and beamax for coming to a better solution.....(hopefully).

Yep, top service from Pamela and benji. Really appreciate it, hence why my custom stays with them when changing the screen.

However, City Link are a nightmare. Have had so many bad experiences with this carrier.

hi
interested in the beamax screen was wondering whether there are any fixing rings at the ends as i wish to hang mine from ceiling hooks so can be taken down when not in use. pretty sure the orays have them but not sure of the r-black
cheers pete

Hi mate,

Cannot reply to this as went for a fixed screen as a replacement and then my bloody landlord decided to sell the flat....

However, from recollection, there are ceiling hooks.

The R - Black does have ends for fixing hooks and hanging from a ceiling as well as the option to screw into a wall ( i couldn't do either so ended up cutting the screen from the metal casing and attaching to the wall a different way and it works superbly and i'm well pleased with the picture )

The one i got is a 106inch inch model and is extremely long and heavy so bear that in mind when it arrives if you buy it.
