Display Boards are generally constructed as a honeycomb sandwich between two thin facings to create a rigid, but lightweight panel. The panel is then usually covered with a Velcro compatible fabric which allows display items to be applied and removed without leaving a mark. At Displaykit, we have 3 main Display Boards available:
Baseline Panels which are are lightweight 10mm thick board with an 18mm thick frame. One face is recessed to allow graphics up to 3mm thick to be left on the panel when the kit is folded shut. Baseline panels are particularly suited for Folding Panel Kits and Table Top Displays but can also be used for small panel and pole set ups.
Baseline Plus Panels are 17mm thick boards within a 25mm thick frame and therefore studier than standard Baseline panels. Again, one face of the panel is recessed, but a little less at 2mm. Baseline Plus is also suitable for use as Folding Display Panels, but their sturdier construction also makes them more suitable for Panel and Pole set ups.
Phantom Panels are our 18mm thick premium panels, suited for medium and larger exhibition stands. There is no visible frame as the fabric is tucked into a channel within the side thickness of the board. So, without a visible frame, Phantom panels produce a virtually seamless joint when the panels butt up against each other. This creates a cleaner, more prestigious display backdrop.
Exhibition Panels can be linked together by several methods. For self-assembly panel kits, the 2 main systems are:
Folding Display Boards - very popular for fast to assemble panel kits. The boards are permanently connected with hinges so that they can be folded open and closed for transport and storage. We have 2 grades of panel that we use for folding panel kits - Baseline and the thicker and more sturdy Baseline Plus.
Panel and Pole Kits - comprise individual display boards that are linked together with snap-on clips that attach display boards to poles. This system is more adaptable than folding panel kits because the boards are not permanently linked together. Panel and Pole systems are particularly useful for Self-Build Exhibition Stands and a wide range of accessories enables you to create a display area specific to your requirements.
Panels are available in standard sizes, such as 900 x 600mm, 1000 x 700mm and up to 2250 x 1000mm. However, panels are made to order and can be supplied at custom sizes to suit your design and display. The clips and poles are available in two sizes, 16 and 25mm diameter, either black or grey in colour.
Generally, display panels can be set-up with a plan layout that enables the display to stand on its own without additional support. However there are occasions when it may be necessary to create more stability by adding Straight Feet or heavier Circular Baseplates, which are available from Displaykit.
Our display boards are generally covered with loop nylon fabric, which is velcro compatible. There is a range of 6 Foam Backed Loop Nylon Colours - Black, Plasma Red, Royal Blue, Emerald Green, New Grey and Gunmetal. You can have one colour on the front face and another on the reverse, if that flexibility is more suitable for you.
Our standard panel kits come complete with Panel Bags. There is a range of Basic and Standard Bags available and you may wish to upgrade from Basic Bags to Standard Bags. Basic Bags have carry handles, whilst Standard Bags are also provided with webbing and a shoulder strap.
The appearance of any display is improved with the proper use of lighting. We have a range of Display Lights that are suitable for Exhibition Panels, and these are now mainly energy efficient LED's. Some are fitted with a bulldog clamp that attaches the light to the display board. Others may require a Universal Light Fitting Kit that adapts the fixing method to suit panels, but this doesn't work with all lights.
