Tab tensioned screen disaster


Active Member
The motor failed on my tab tensioned Euroscreen Linea screen (Draper react screen). It did a weird thing where it lowered the screen to its maximum (all the way to the floor) then packed up.

I was off on holiday the next day so I put on the list of jobs to do when I got back. On arriving back home two weeks later I walk in to find the screen in a crumpled mess on the floor. The tension strings were still d to the roller but, maybe in the heat, the screen had come away from the roller and the tabs all detached from the tension strings! Fortunately the screen material did not suffer and ri

Is there an installer out there who can source me a new motor and come and reattach the screen for me? I am in Buckinghamshire and, of course, willing to pay for someone’s time.

Tried calling a few local AV places but no joy. Now hoping AVF comes to my rescue. If anyone can help I would be very grateful (as would my three kids who are missing our weekly movie night!).

keeping my fingers crossed.......

I would contact Euroscreen direct and see what they recommend. Unfortunately I hear Draper UK has shut it doors.
