I am considering an aluminum frame. Light weight, strong and can hoisted easier than the EMT (that as a frame only is heavy). Just wondering if anyone else besides the two I have read about has any feedback to this? I plan to use 1 inch aluminum square tubing. I plan on welding the aluminum to make the 10 x 20 frame including welding aluminum eye-bolts at the top to hoist up with my pulley system. I will paint the aluminum to prevent hot spots.

Any thoughts would be appreciated. I am hoping that with this light weight, if it fell, it wouldn't kill anyone.

Running out of options since I plan on buying a Carl's flex-white screen $$$. I want to be able to put it up and take it down with ease.

If this is the wrong place, can an admin move to the correct location?

I think you want to post this in the DIY Screen Forum.
