Interesting discussion here.
Thanks Kam for posting accurate info. You are very versed in screens.
One of the most important elements in building a quality electric roller screen is the use of a large diameter screen roller tube. If you try to save space by using a small diameter roller tube, the screen fabric must then be rolled up tightly to conform with the smaller circumference of the roller tube. The end result is that the screen fabric may have a tendency to have wrinkles, laddering lines and poor lay flat characteristics. Most screen manufactures, Dalite, Draper, Stewart, etc offer 3 inch diameter and larger roller tubes. I highly recommend that you consider one of these units as it will give you a lot more long term enjoyment.
