    I'd like to mount a screen in an office block I'm renting for my small print business (give me something to do on quiet days :clap: ) - thinking about going for a DRH lite screen but the environment and surfaces are going to present some problems. This may well be more suited to DIY but we'll see...

    Option 1:
    I could wall mount, however, the wall material is extremely powdery and about 1cm in has a honeycomb metal meshing structure. I could drill 1cm into the wall and then possibly use a metal drill bit to go through the meshing but I'm not sure how viable this would even be due to the crumbliness of the wall.

    Option 2:
    The other option is ceiling mount but that opens another can of worms - it slants upwards from left to right at around a 5-10 degree angle (at a guess). The surface at least is slightly better - it's plater board and I have these great rawlplugs that clamp above plaster board like a disc.

    I thought maybe I could mitre a bit of wood for one side to make a wedge but then I'd be looking at securing the wedge to the roof and then the screen to the wedge.

    I'm open to any opinions whether they be related to the above or something completely different!

    A floor "pull up" screen?

    Might be easier :)

    Thanks for the advice Kramer, a floor pull up would certainly be easier but I was hoping to use a wall/ceiling mounted screen for use at both home and the office.

    This thread could be better suited to DIY though, waddya think? :)
