Golf Impact Screen Comparison Chart (Standard, Preferred or Premium)

The tightly woven fibers that make up Carl’s Preferred Impact Screens result in a surface that is not only significantly smoother than our standard material but also more resistant to wear. Our preferred golf screen is made of heavy-duty polyester with silicone reinforcement with a tightly woven knit. The properties of Preferred's single layer construction are likely to show dimples from each ball strike. The dimples do not hurt the material, but it may be visible within your image.

  • Excellent durability for experienced golfers and the best value for home users
  • Use with real golf balls up to 250 MPH with an indoor golf simulator
  • Independently tested; medium wear will be seen around 5,000 shots
  • Independently tested; heavy wear will be seen around 20,000 shots
  • Ships folded in a box (Weight/Dimensions)

Selecting A Screen
STEP 1: SELECT AN ASPECT RATIO

Aspect ratio simply refers to the shape of the image being projected. When the ratio of the projector, image, and screen match the image fills the entire screen and you will not see black masking bars.

What are black masking bars? Think ... "this film has been modified to fit your TV". When a film has been modified to fit your TV screen you often see black bars at the top and bottom or left and right of your screen.

An aspect ratio of 4:3 has the shape of a CRT TV, and a 16:9 has the shape of a flat screen TV. The 4:3 is very common for golf simulators because it allows you to go taller, giving you more room to swing, without needing a wider room. If space allows the 16:9 is great for 4K and HD images, but be aware if you are tall or have limited room depth that this option may be too short for you to swing a golf club. The 1:1 is square, it’s uncommon for projection, but may work if space is limited, although it increases the chances of seeing black bars and you will likely have to adjust the settings on your computer.

STEP 2: SELECT A SCREEN SIZE (H x W Feet)

If you are purchasing this item it means you are designing your own installation method.

Depending on where you plan to install your golf impact screen you have a variety of installation options. Some customers who plan to use it in their garage or barn simply hang the screen from the rafters and allow it to hang loosely. Commercial settings and customers building indoor golf simulators often require additional safety features and build full hitting cages or enclosures with baffle nets. Alternatively, some customers are somewhere in between these two options and build only a frame from which to hang it, and not a full cage.

Hanging your golf screen to your personal satisfaction may require some trial and error. The trick is to hang it flat for a nice image, but not tight or you risk the ball ricocheting back at you. Do not put tension on the screen; you need to allow for some movement.

If you are building a golf enclosure, hitting cage or frame you have the option to get a screen that is the same size as your frame which allows the screen to cover the framework and provides the material additional slack.

However, some customers do not care for the additional slack/draping of the material and choose a screen that is slightly smaller than their framework. Additionally, you may prefer the 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.

INSTALLATION

Keep in mind, if you are using framework of any kind and you prefer to avoid slack/draping of the material, we generally recommend the 2-inch guideline. The 2" Guideline is to make sure the framework is no more than 2 inches larger than your screen. Conversely, make sure the screen is no more than 2 inches smaller than your framework. This means a Maximum of 4 inches (or 2 inches per side). Again the trick is to hang your golf screen flat for a nice image, but not tight or you risk the ball ricocheting back at you. Do not put tension on the screen; you need to allow for some movement.

CARE AND USE

For the safety of both the golfer and the screen we recommend standing a minimum distance of 10 to 12 feet away from the screen. Place a projector above your tee or mat, not behind it, to avoid your own shadow on the screen.

All impact screen users should note that these materials are "wearable" products, and over the long haul this wear may affect the amount of visible texture (dimples, scuff marks, etc.) seen on the screen and therefore HD image quality. The style, ability, and frequency of the user will all contribute to the service life of a screen. However, all of our materials have been tested to withstand thousands of strikes at up to 250 miles per hour.

The front will always be folded facing in, to protect it, and the back will be facing out. For a long-lasting screen make sure to use the correct side for impact. If you purchased a finished edge screen you can also use the grommets to differentiate the front from the back of your golf screen. The front of the grommet has a smooth, rounded, and aesthetically pleasing appearance. The back of the grommet has a rim or raised ridge along the inner circle.

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. Newer golf balls without abrasions will also help to extend the life of you screen. This product does not include software or frame components.

Safety Tips:  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 and neighboring homes. Carl's Place is not responsible for damage to property and/or personal injury.
