    Projector Screens

    Morning all,

    Very general thing.

    I'm looking to replace a couple of our protable projector screens that get used fairly regularly when the school has meetings in areas that don't have a permanent solution in place (I've already asked and they won't let me put a permanent solution up). The two we have are quite literally falling apart, and as much as anything when we have them set up for parents evening it looks shoddy.

    I've done a bit of googling, but I've never heard of any of the companies, can anyone recommend anywhere? Can anyone recommend me a particular screen?

    Cheers

    Iain

    If you can still get them, Delta screens are good. No flimsy tripod, but there is a bit that could get lost.

    I think we bought some screens (3M I believe) and they were like your typical portable screens (the ones that wave from side to side) but very much sturdier. If that makes any sense.

    As a company we use sahara or saphire. Very good quality and decent prices.

    If you're looking for a supplier, I've used these before : Projector screens UK

    Plenty of info and prices on a selection of makes / models.

    Thanks for this thread @Iain.Faulkner I will be watching with interest, my current one is taped together by duck tape, the legs fall apart, and are no use. I would like a permenant fixture but there are occasions when a portable is still needed.

    I prefer the pull-up type of projector screen that you pull up from a case that stands on the floor - no messing around with breakable-looking hooks and hinges. eBay seem to have a good selection, starting from around £100 - search for "pull up screen" to at least get the idea of the kind of thing I mean. They're not actually nearly as heavy as you might think (I can quite easily lift them one-handed) and only a bit longer than the fold-up type of screen. They are more stable than they first look, too, and don't end up bent to the left or right after a bit of use.

    That's pretty much the situation I find myself in :-)

    Thanks for all your responses, I'm going to get myself a Sahara screen, thanks to CPLTD for being so quick on the phone :-)
