I came across this screen setup.

It's a different kind of setup.

 Here's the link to the site:

Well, I guess that's "portable", if you have an erecting crane lying around the garage. Still, there are bound to be some building tips for us in the construction of that thing.

Yes, the construction is what caught my eye. It's alway's good to see a proven design that works. I'm sure someone with access to this material could scale something.

I know Fast-Fold screens have gotten a bad rap here, but I should like to point out that the DaLite truss frame portable screens have a very similar construction. Perhaps they would be suitable for outdoor use?

What, exactly, was the damage done to or inadequacy of the Fast-Fold screens mentioned earlier. Anyone?

Hehehehe
The Screen is cheap.  It's that crane that will set your pocket book back a bit.

hello - cherry hills, did you ever find out why the da-lite portable truss frames had such a bad reputation. from my recent reading they seem to be quite portable and come in varying sizes. i'm considering getting one...any feedback you have would be appreciated.

also this amsterdam setup in my humble opinion may simply be a custom truss framing job. aside from the size it seems to be a very basic structure composed of truss framing as used in events staging and event booths etc.

My screen design was kind of taken from the old Steam Ship movie screens used as seen in the below shot from the GRACE LINES passenger ship. It was aprox. 15' x 15'
I liked the way  the lacing looked and left it mine visible along with the 2" PVC and top truss support

Love the crane in the first post above.
