I am looking for a screen without a black border. I was hoping to use my white wall, but found out quickly that it's not actually flat and has quite a wave to it. I prefer to not have a 100" black edged rectangel on my wall and was curious if anyone else a white edges or boderless screen. If they do, I'm apparently not searching with the correct terminology as I can't find one.

Any help is appreciated!

Most screens are not borderless because projectors don't actually make a perfect rectangle. Light will fall off the edge of the screen or it won't fill the screen completely.

That said, if you still want to do this, then I would look at the Silver Ticket thin bezel screen.

I know that sounds wrong, but looking at the instructions, it appears that the 'frame' actually snaps on after the screen is completely assembled and may be entirely optional.

You can email them to confirm that this is the case, but it looks like it is.

It's not just splash that you want to cover up. It's that contrast will be better if you have a border in place. There are other ways to disguise it though. Some use a motorized screen placed on the floor (there's some really nice ones out there). Others will put french doors or sliding barn-doors over the panel when it's not in use.
