The Importance of Impact Screens
Posted by bret richards on June 01, 2016 0 Comments
If you are considering a golf simulator for your home, you have a lot of options. And some important decision to make. Thankfully, the Golf Simulator Guys are here to help.
Are you interested in a launch monitor, or would a full golf simulator be a better choice for improving your swing and making hours of practice feel more like a game?
Technology is important of course, and in many ways, your budget and expectations for an in-door golfing experience will determine whether its best to chose ball-tracking technology, club-tracking technology or a combination of both.
And, of course, don’t forget the game simulation software. Though software does come bundled with golf simulators, there are options for selecting stand-alone gaming platforms. For example, TruGolf's E6 game software works with a wide range of devices, including Trackman, Full Swing Golf, Pro-Tee United, Sports Coach, FlightScope and Golf Simulators of America.
There is, however, another important consideration when creating your new in-home golfing experience – the impact screen. There are many options when it comes to impact screen, and the material used is an important consideration. The selection of the right impact screen material is key to the enjoyment and longevity of our indoor golf studio.
Impact Screen – Key Considerations
Choosing the right impact screen material for your indoor golf simulator is critical to achieving the realism of playing a virtual round of golf. In addition, the sign of a quality impact screen is one made with material that is not only durable and projects well, but minimizes bounce back as well.
It’s important to select a golf impact screen that is designed for high definition imagery and provides a clear, vivid and crisp image. If you are like many of our clients, you want an indoor golf simulator to be something the whole family can enjoy – even those that are not interested in the game of golf. If you chose the right impact screen material, and purchase a high quality projector, transforming your indoor golf simulator into a home theatre is a straight forward endeavour.
Golf impact screen can be built into full enclosures, are remain as stand-along units. And in many cases, side panels or netting is used to prevent stray balls from doing harm to the surroundings. They also improve the aesthetics of in-door golf studios – an important consideration.
Impact Screen Material from the Golf Simulator Guys
The material used in the Golf Simulator Guy’s impact screens can be used for any type of impact screen on the market, including real ball screens, foam ball screens, hanging screens and tension screens.
What separates our impact screen material from other impact screen materials on the market is the high picture quality. Other materials on the market only use a mesh fabric, resulting in poor picture quality. We have 2 tightly woven pieces of fabric separated by thousands of fibers creating a 3D fabric. This 3D fabric results in better durability and superior picture quality.
Our impact screen fabric is the best on the market. It can easily withstand the impact of a golf ball at the same time producing an image worthy of the high-end HD projectors. And even in tension screen designs, our fabric has limited trampoline affect.
The high definition impact screen material from the Golf Simulator Guys holds light extremely well, can be used as either a hanging or tension screen, and is extremely durable. In addition, it can be used with grommets. And unlike many golf simulator screens on the market, our golf impact screens contain no seams.
