I have been concentrating on electric screens for my particular installation because the screen will block a closet door but rolled up would make it accessible.

However I could get a slightly bigger and likely higher quality fixed screen for the same money but would still need that door to be accessible. I am thinking if I could mount a fixed screen on some kind of slider or roller then I could just slide it over to access that closet then just slide back in to viewing position.

Has anyone does this?

If so how?

Does someone make sliding mounts possibly?

Thanks for any info.

I'd think you want to use some hardware for a closet (bypass) door. Make a valance to cover up the track like you would for curtains.

Hey that is not a bad idea, I will have to look at Lowes and see what I can retrofit.

Please let us know how it goes if you end up installing a sliding screen. I'm interested in doing the exact same thing to help center my screen (which is otherwise a bit left of center due to a stairway entrance on the right end of the wall) but not sure how doable it is of a project, especially since I would want to do it with a fairly large (120") screen.

BACK TO BLU!
