2000mm wide vinyl?

Are there any suppliers out there that supply vinyl 2000mm wide? I have had a customer contact me today wanting an area in his cinema room covered 2000mm x 2000mm with no joins. He wants it in gloss white and the material at the moment that needs covering is MDF but is happy to change for the right look. I have advised him to perhaps go for a large acrylic sheet but he's concerned about the weight and how it is going to attach correctly so feels vinyl is the best / most cost effective way.

Can anyone advise on where and what type of vinyl I should be using to cover MDF?

Thanks

Not very constructive, I know, sorry.

But wouldn't his boards be better painted?

I did also suggest that but he wants a real deep gloss finish (ie - gloss white vinyl), and I dont think paint will give that kind of finish.

Is he planning to use a projector?
If he is you can tell him to forget gloss anything....been there, tried that.....desperate reflection of the projector bulb and glare. Much better to use banner vinyl......I am somewhat proud of my adapted roller blind and cinema screen.....works brilliantly. :D

As Harry said, As John said!

Just to add to mix...Vinyl on MDF is a NO GO. It don't stick...well for a few days it will...

Its not for a projector! In short he has built a false fireplace with a 55" led screen in front of it. The whole room is gloss white / black so wants the same finish on the face of the fireplace behind the TV.

I concur with Mr Childs
paint is the answer and offers a superior finish to vinyl if done properly.

What is that shrinkwrap material? they use it on kitchen cabinets a lot down here. The finish is like 2pac on cars. It's so glossy and durable.
