The Abyss .9 is the best choice for image quality if you have a modern reasonably high lumen projector (about 1700 or more). It has a wide viewing angle, great colour accuracy, good gain, no screen induced artifacts and amazing ALR properties.

We include 12 cm of extra DEA DIY Flex material to all four edges. This gives you plenty of material to work with, so you can easily grab onto the material while stretching it over a simple DIY frame. It also gives you ample area for stapling or tacking the screen to the frame without damaging the actual screen surface.
You can make a very effective professional looking frame very simply with a trip to Bunnings for a few inexpensive materials.

Your hardware store may even cut your pieces to length for you making it super simple to make a screen. Another short cut is to attach the screen material to the back of the frame only and simply spray paint the front of the frame matt black.
