Yes, they grip very strongly thru laminate.
If you look in the links above (underlined), you will see the magnets traditionally are embedded in backer material via simple drill hole, and epoxied in place.
I've not seen people epoxy then in "free space" to laminate itself, that might work, assuming you did it in 2 steps.
Step 1 with tape to hold the magnets and epoxy it on the sides.
Step 2 remove tape, and further encapsulate the magnet with epoxy.
Thanks for the Links, but this is how I attached mine last night.
Sorry I didn't take any pictures but it's very self explanatory.1st.)
I bought 15 feet of Industrial Strength Velcro from here: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...02_i00_details2nd)
I measured how many vertical length Velcro Pieces I needed to place throughout the Screen.
In my Case I decided to cut 4 pieced with the length of about 20 - 25 inches each.
Then, I placed them vertically across the entire screen. I am using my entire 5 x 10 ft. screen so what I did is, I taped the Velcro from the top most position of my screen, vertically down. That way the top of the screen won't sag down.
Then I cut smaller pieces with the remaining Velcro I had and taped them across the bottom of my screen and one piece directly in the "belly" of the screen, which supposedly is the part that likes to swell.
I placed all the appropriate size cut of the "other side" of the Velcro and placed them on top of the currently placed Velcro on my Screen. In other words, I matched the 2 Velcro (Male and Female) pieces on top of each other. After that I massaged the pieces with a bit of pressure to make sure they bond right.4th)
With the help of 2 people, I removed the tape covers of the Velcro, lifted the Screen and carefully placed it upon the Wall. This is the crucial part, you want to make sure you do it right the first time. Don't push it against the Wall just to realize it's crooked. That's why you want that 3rd person (You) too look from afar and make sure it's straight.5th)
Push the screen firmly onto the wall and massage the screen all around to be sure it bonds.
EnjoyThings to consider:
The 15 feet I bought seems to be enough, but if you truly want to be sure, buy longer Velcro or multiple orders. Also, the more Velcro you use, the harder it will be to remove the Screen if you ever desire to do so. At some point it will stick to firmly, that you may brake the screen if you try to remove it. If you don't see yourself removing it for a few years, just buy 30 ft. Of Velcro and tape it like a Champ.
My basement Wall had some kind of residue "powder" on it from when we had the Basement finished about 4 years ago. Make sure you wipe it ALL clean or the glue won't stick.
My Screen sits flush against the Wall. I am not using any Frame. Sure, it's not as 100% flush as it would be on a Frame but it's not affecting the picture AT ALL. I don't see any waves or any distortions of the picture WHATSOEVER.
pictures will be uploaded later today.
