A few questions -
I really like the idea of the hanging screen instead of an entire AT wall. What is the material used for the 2 posts? How did you hang the screen - what/how do the 2 posts connect to the stud above the ceiling? Is there a frame of some sort between the posts and the screen?
Do the speakers show underneath the screen? Not an issue once the lights are out?
1)I used these to hang from the studs in the ceiling:
2)If you look at Seymour's website, the fine print actually talks about offering a screen frame with pre-drilled holes and the stainless steel wire to hang the screen (this is actually were I got the overall idea):
While the Precision frame is a bit more limited in its flexibility, here are some common options:
Continuous top/bottom frame. For Center Stage and Glaicier screens, a spliced top/bottom frame is an attractive cost savings as standard feature. While any Precision frame can be made continuous, for Matinee screens, due to their reflective nature we strongly recommend you upgrade to the continuous top/bottom frame option. The freight trip results in a better end product.
Black Backing layer. For Center Stage screens, the cost for this option strts at $238, depending on size. Most folks don't need this, as it's usually easy to darken the surfaces behind the screen. It can be installed later if you need, using half the o-rings from your screen. Non-AT screens never need a black backing layer.
Drilled and threaded holes. We can drill and thread holes on the sides or top of the frame if you need.
Black eye bolts. For those who need to hang the screen from the ceiling, request that we drill and tap on the top of the frame, and include eye bolts.
Stainless steel cable. For a classier look than chain, we can precision cut and Nicopress® specific lengths of 0.032" diameter SS cable for you to hang your screen from.
Magnetic bottom wall pulls. Not all walls are straight, so if you'd like (or need) a pair of strong Neodymium posts that screw into the wall and pull the bottom corners, let us know.
Custom sizes Need to fit in between something? We can make your screen to any critical dimension to a 0.1" resolution. We don't charge extra for this, but simply round up to the next standard size.
3)You can see underneath the screen just a little bit. Since the paint and acoustic treatments are black behind the screen, there are almost no reflections at all.
