Carl's Golf Impact Screen FAQ

Fore! Look Out Golf Screen Help is Ahead

Carl's Golf Impact Screen questions and answers

Yes! Carl's Golf Simulator Impact Screens can be found right here. Since we sell both movie projection screens and golf impact screens; any product suitable for golf will have the words "Golf" and "Impact" in the product title. Unfortunately, the rest of our product line will not withstand the impact of a golf ball.

The impact side will always be folded or rolled facing in, to protect the front, and the back will be facing out. For a long-lasting golf impact screen make sure to use the correct side for impact.

Do NOT use a golf ball with Sharpie marker on it and make sure your clubs and golf balls are clean to avoid getting dirt or grass stains on your screen.

All of our golf impact screen materials are compatible for HD projection, though your projector, of course, will need to be capable of projecting a native HD resolution. That said, Premium Impact Screens have very little texture, they can provide the sharpest possible picture for your high-definition images.

No, sorry they cannot. All golf impact screens are front-projection only. Front-projection screen materials are opaque. The image will not show through the screen.

We have two product dimension types:

(1) Projection Industry (8 sizes):  To ensure the image fills the entire screen and achieve the best possible image projections, match the native aspect ratio of your projector to that of the screen by selecting a size with a corresponding aspect ratio (See Aspect Ratio Chart Below*). Aspect ratio simply refers to the shape of the image being projected. A 4:3 is slightly more square, like old CRT TVs. A 16:9 is a wider screen like today's flat screen TVs and is the most common. And the 2.39:1 golf impact screen is wider yet.

(2) Golf Industry:  Some customers desire golf industry screen sizes and for them the projected image is secondary while the safety of the surrounding area is the priority. If this describes you, select a golf industry size (all remaining sizes). Additionally some customers prefer their impact screen fit a specific amount of space, while others prefer additional height and allow the screen to drape on the ground at the bottom and assist in ball return.

There is no right or wrong answer, only personal preference. Simply select your desired width in the drop down menu, on the product page, and then select the height. If it corresponds with an aspect ratio it will be noted at this time. Projection industry aspect ratio sizes are also shown in this chart.

Finished Edge Screens have 2.5" black vinyl edges and approximately 1 grommet per foot. These options are a raw cut of material only, no edging.

Finished Edge Golf Impact Screens have black vinyl borders, sewn on with black nylon thread, which are approximately 2.5 inches wide all the way around the screen.

Technically our black vinyl is 5 inches wide. We fold it in half so you have 2 ½ inches on both the front and the back of your Finished Edge Screen and then we grommet through all three layers (vinyl, impact material, vinyl).

Our grommets have an outer dimension of 3/4" and an inner dimension of 3/8". They are made of brass and painted matte black.

Our Hitting Cage Corner Fittings are intended for customers who plan to build a golf simulator hitting cage up to 10-12 Ft. To build a cage you will need 1" EMT. View Product: Fittings Only to Build (up to a 12 Foot) Golf Simulator Hitting Cage

EMT stands for Electrical Metal Tubing, also known as, Electrical Metal Conduit. The 1 inch pipe size fits into our Hitting Cage corner and support fittings/connectors perfectly. Hitting Cage Fittings do NOT include the required 1" EMT pipe/poles due to the impracticality of shipping. Instead, you can find EMT pipes at your local building supply store. Find 1" EMT at Home Depot or Lowes. EMT pipe comes in 10' lengths.

PVC pipes will NOT work with our Fittings.

Please make sure to take proper safety precautions. DO take every precaution; keep children, pets and spectators out of swing range. DO take every precaution to protect ceilings, walls, windows, cars & neighboring homes. Carl's Place is not responsible for damage to property &/or personal injury.

Yes. The impact side will always be folded or rolled facing in, to protect the front, and the back will be facing out. For a long-lasting golf impact screen make sure to use the correct side for impact.

Do NOT use a golf ball with Sharpie marker on it and make sure your clubs and golf balls are clean to avoid getting dirt or grass stains on your screen.

Maybe, with care. It is safe to leave your Standard or Preferred Impact Screen outside for short-term periods (handful of days per summer), but long-term it is best to take the screen down to protect it from the elements. Premium Impact Screens are best used indoors and are not recommended for outdoor use. When you take your Standard or Preferred Impact Screen inside make sure it is clean and dry so mold and mildew don't have a chance to grow on the fabric before you store it. Remember, wind is a powerful force of nature! Please make sure your screen is properly anchored. Unfortunately, Carl's Place cannot be held responsible for damage to or resulting from screens that are left out during a storm. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure - do your best to setup, use and store your screen in a safe, clean and dry environment.

Do NOT use a golf ball with Sharpie marker on it and make sure your clubs and golf balls are clean to avoid getting dirt or grass stains on your screen.

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure - do your best to setup, use and store your screen in a safe, clean and dry environment. However, you can lightly spot clean your screen with water and a Q-tip, soft rag or sponge. Mild dish soap can be used in small areas with a light touch. Please use care and always test in a very small area first.

Do NOT use abrasives, steam clean, dry clean or place in a washing machine. Unfortunately, Carl's Place cannot be held responsible for damage to or resulting from screens that are not cleaned and cared for responsibly.

Remove the material from the shipping package immediately upon receipt. If you choose a product that ships folded in a box or if you leave your screen in long-term storage, you will see fold marks when the material is first pulled out of the box, as any textile will have. Folds marks may take a few days to weeks to relax.

Unfortunately, we do not recommend using an iron on Golf Impact Screen materials.

Keep in mind, select materials have the option to ship rolled on a tube for an additional fee, if you prefer to avoid fold marks. If you are at all concerned about folds and wrinkles you may want to consider ordering your material rolled, when available. Packaging options (box or tube) are visible after selecting the size you desire, in the drop down menu, under the product images. If you would like a freight quote because you do not see a rolled option online see our "Freight Shipping Information" question, here in the FAQ.

Always make sure your screen is completely clean and dry before storing to avoid spots, mold or mildew if you have used it outside.

If you plan to repeatedly fold and unfold your screen, do so loosely. Long-term storage and tight folds may take a few days to weeks to relax. It is also safe to roll the screen on a tube with care.

We recommend mounting your golf impact screen a minimum of one foot away from the wall, just to be safe. If you are really good and hit the ball hard you may want to increase this distance.

Customers who have purchased our impact screen material have hung it in multiple ways. Some have used clamps; others staple the top to a piece of wood all along the top and simply let it hang.

Customers who have purchased a finished edge impact screen have used our bungees, rope, carabiners and zip ties.

Some customers prefer their impact screen fit a specific amount of space, while others prefer additional height and allow the screen to drape on the ground at the bottom and assist in ball return. There is no right or wrong answer, only personal preference.

Factors that determine the amount of bounce back will be; how you have chosen to hang/install the screen, distance you are standing from the screen, strength you hit the ball and the club you are using. Generally speaking, if the screen is draped loosely, and not stretched tight, you should experience little to no bounce back at all. Mount the screen in such a way that allows it to "give" enough to absorb the strike and it should almost stop the ball completely.

Insert the bungee cord through the grommet hole from behind the screen. The ball now touches the backside of the black vinyl border. Pull the cord over and around the frame/or 1" EMT pipe. Lastly, loop the cord over the ball behind the screen.
