Hi,

I've got a Dalite Electrol screen (mat white) and am considering replacing it with the 1.5 gain video screen. Is it possible to order just the material and replace it myself or would I be better off selling this one and buying another?

Thanks, Jerry

Hi Jerry

It is possible to order just the screen material. Dalite representatives are very helpful, on the phone. A dealer will have to order it for you. I think AVS is a Dalite dealer, even though the products are not on their web site.

It is not only possible, but recommended by me. I did just that and was able to get the exact type of screen in the exact size I wanted. By ordering fabric with grommetts around the perimeter, I was able to create a screen that is tight, like a drum, and thus super flat and wrinkle free. See my construction pics here

It is interesting to note that Dalite charges more (actually MUCH more) for the material alone than when installed in a screen. For instance, I got a quote for Hi Power material in 92x52 for four-hundred-something dollars. I can buy the same screen in a Model B for just $255 shipped.

I have also heard, but can't confirm, that the rolls used on the model B are interchangeable with the ones used on the Cosmo Electrols. This means that you could replace your Electrol screen material with a roll from a model B for about half what it would cost to purchase the replacement material alone.
