This forum is amazing ! Thanks for all the help.
Let's get you some real help.
First off, here's a location that will do you right, price-wise, although they have none of the "Over Sized" inventory:
Sintra / Kometex in "White"
10' x 60" x 6mm @ $118.70
La Mirada, CA
Myself, I seldom am able to find the huge sheets that Laird has in stock. But as soon as they open I'll see what i can do to get that price mitigated for you. I have a little bit of clout with those Guys....but so far I haven't seen those size sheets available so there is that to consider.
As for framing in such a manner that you can use the full 60"s...that's pretty easily done using inexpensive White Laminated 1/8" MDF sheeting called "Thrifty White Hardboard" available at Home Depot, or simply using 1" x 6" x 12' Poplar as a Frame with 2" of the wood remaining outside the edges all around.
A few have used a combination of such (Wood & TWH ) and that might be just the ticket for you. In any case, you'll get all the needed help to make it happen....of that you can be certain.
would suggest RS-MaxxMudd (est.1.2 gain) Standard or "LL"
( tested @ 1.3+ gain)
