Mounting Your Screen
One of the main things that can be a challenge with an impact screen is how you will actually install it. There are plenty of DIY methods that someone who is handy can rig up on their own, and we will cover those in detail below.
Step 1: build a frame
There are a couple of popular methods to build a DIY golf simulator enclosure or a standalone frame - several of which are listed below. If you go the DIY route, we recommend using aluminum or steel tube with fittings, it tends to be the simplest and most economical of the bunch.
- 1" EMT with Tent Canopy Fittings
- Strut Channels or Angle Iron
- Wood 2" x 4"
- 40mm or 45mm Aluminum Extrusions
Step 2: Attach screen to frame
How you physically attach the screen to your frame will depend on the screen material type (raw vs. finished edges) as well as what your frame is made out of (tube, wood, angle iron, etc). If building a frame out of wood or aluminum extrusions, you may require additional hardware (such as screw eye bolts in the case of a wood frame) to tether the screen to the structure.
- Tarp Clips (for raw screen material)
- Ball Bungees (best for finished screens)
- Zip Ties
- Shock Cord
