I've had a 84" screen painted with the same basic formula hanging on a outside Wall under a open sided patio w/Roof, exposed to 100 degree heat / 15 degree cold / variable humidity, and even getting a occasional splash of beer on it.
For just under 3 years now.
Of course it's hanging so the bottom of the Trim is 8' off the ground, so direct contact is almost impossible (...except for beer splatters...which wipe right off...)
That particular effort was a Light Fusion (Plastic Mirror) "Glue" mounted on Thrifty White Hardboard that itself was screwed to the outside wall's Lap Siding. Doing that over, I'd use Sintra myself, if only because such Expanded Foam Plastic Signboard was originally intended for use in such environs. But under a "No Wet" location and securely mounted, Painted TWH would get'ter dun.
As for Transporting, if the Screens are mounted to Frames whose outside edges extend past the painted edge of the Screen, and care is taken to protect the painted Surfaces while in route, hanging, yeah...they are good to go.
