When we speak about renovating the screens we are often talk about the same things. Changing the cloth, the poly-wires, the energy strips and sometimes new guiding-clips. After a longer periode the pullwires are ready for renovation. One of the most important parts are often forgotten to renew. The bearings in the driveshaft plates.
From 4 to 8
In the old days we used 4 bearings each plate. This was for then a good system. Today we see that screens are used a lot more and that 4 bearing are not enough. The problem is that the bearings will not run smooth anymore and they make a lot of noise. And also that the shaft will be a lot thinner at this place. This problem is very easy to solve. You don't have to wait for the renovation of the pullwires, you can start tomorrow if you want. The 4 old bearings has to be changed for 8 new ones. Were the old bearings were spacers are installed and the new bearings will be placed outside the plates.
Do it yourself
Changing these bearings is very easy to do by yourself. We have a fixed price for the necessary parts. Just count the plates and order the materials. Within a short time you can start with the work. Our advice will be: don't be to late. This is a very small investment with a great result.
