My dilemma:
Need a small a small screen (60 inch diag)to mount on the back of a fireplace- bricks can get up to about 100 degrees when in use. Am I in for trouble? are there snap-mounted screens that won't suffer from the heat? I am hoping to go grey-

Thanks
Henry

The temp may soften the plastic and create a sagging problem over time. There is an easy solution. Use some steel L brackets, hole plates, bolts, nuts & washers and you can mount the screen frame six or more inches out from the "hot" wall. That will leave plenty of ventilation behind the screen to avoid long term problems.
