Thanks for the reply! I just heard back from James (the owner) and he said that the screen material was their own brand. The more I research them, the better the screens seem to be.I still have my original screen from him back in the day when he was just getting started. Its now almost 3 years old and not one issue. I have no idea what he used for a screen material but he now has the Seymour XD material posted on the website for his AT screens.
Got my screen this weekend and installed it. I have a few questions before I give my impressions. First, did you find the French cleat to provide enough support for the frame? Second, I still have several wrinkles and waves in my screen even though I stretched it twice (following the instructions provided) and many of the wrinkles seem to coincide with how the screen was rolled on the PVC pipe for shipping. Do you have any advice for getting these wrinkles/waves out? How did you stretch your screen to get out all the wrinkles?Congrats! Looking forward to hearing your impressions...
I went with the 120 as well. I'm hoping the waves come out in a few days. I'm going to take the screen down and install two more cleats for my own peace of mind. When I do that, I'll try stretching the material again. The projected image is awesome. Just gotta figure out this whole stretching thing. Any tips for getting out the wrinkles? (not the ones from the tube as you said those would come out naturally, but the other ones) Start in the middle and work out?What size screen did you go with?
The waves will sometimes disappear after a week or so of it hanging in place. It takes some patience in getting them out, sometimes just a little finesse is all it needs.
My screen is 120" and has now been in place for three years and its never come loose or shifted from the cleat and I have removed it and put it back a few time without issues.
Thanks! I think that seals the deal.Considering the screen I posted this review on is now 4 years old I have not had one issue with it. The butt joints is fairly standard as it has to be shipped in pieces so miter joints would not work and it looks fine even with the lights on.
As well there is no shadow cast by the image with the boarder made the way it is, again fairly standard for a fixed screen.
