I have on order a Draper Cineperm 106" diagnal scren with M2500 fabric. Should I not be satisfiesd with this high gain material, my plan was to just order the M1300 fabric for a few hundred $$ and replace it. This was in lieu of my original plan for a motorized screen with M2500 for several thousand $$$$$ and, thus, not a cost friendly beast to change fabrics.
I read a post about the Clarion screen fabric change, where Draper advised to replace the frame as well as the fabric. Since I am drilling through the frame to attach it to the wall, this might not work for me.
My call to Draper helped me learn that the Cineperm screen can, indeed, have the fabric screen material switched without any change in the frame.
I also asked if there was a recommended way to attach the snaps onto the frame. He said that it is best to snap the four corners first, and then work toward the center of each side. This seems to be very valuable advice, given the many posts where members have talked about the difficulty of attaching the fabric.
I actually hadn't thought of this. I was going to snap the fabric side by side. He said that this was the more difficult way to do it.
