† Black Ball Bungees are NOT included with Finished Edge Screens, we recommend using one bungee for every grommet. Buy Black Ball Bungees Now!
* Blackout Cloth screens over 9' tall are considered over-sized and require one seam across the center. Once the screen is tension-mounted and the movie is running you should NOT notice the seam. See our FAQ to learn more about tension-mounting. All other screens are seamless.
4" The 4" Rule: Our Hanging Kits and our Standing Kits take the guess work out of designing and building your frame, but if you are designing your own frame we recommend using the 4" rule which will help you calculate the amount of space needed between the un-stretched screen and the outside dimensions of your frame.
In general, there should be 4" from the edge of the un-stretched Finished Edge Screen to the outside edge of a pipe frame. This assumes use of our 6" Black Ball Bungees and pipes which are 1" in diameter. If your frame materials &/or bungees are of a different size adjustments will need to be made accordingly.
Example: Let's say you purchase our 9x16 Foot Finished Edge Screen.
- Find the Total Height (C) and Total Width (D) of your screen on this chart.
Add: 110" + 8" (4" on the top and bottom) – The frame height should be about 118 inches
Add: 191.7" + 8" (4" on each side) – The frame width should be about 199.7 inches
- In this example the 9x16 has a total height and width of: 110 x 191.7 inches
- Answer: If you are designing and building your own frame using the 4" rule, the outside dimensions of your frame should be 118" x 199.7".
This rule was designed with larger screens in mind. If you have a smaller screen, such as a 5x9 or smaller, you may find it acceptable to reduce the 4" rule to 3.5".
To achieve proper tension when mounting your screen to your poles; start by inserting the EMT pipe 4 inches into each fitting, then push or pull the pipes in or out of the fittings until you have pulled the screen tight.
