Ticking all the boxes

Ticking all the boxes

In-store point-of-sale image systems that can be readily changed are now a familiar feature in many retail environments. These eye-catching units enable striking images to be displayed and changed within minutes to accommodate fresh marketing/promotional campaigns.

For such applications, the textile-based NovaTex system from NOVA is said to tick all the right boxes. Available in four different profiles to enable wall-mounted and suspended sign and display options, as well as a freestanding option for single- and double-sided applications, the system works via the incorporation of a silicone edge to the perimeter of the textile which, when pushed into the seating channel of the profile, tensions itself within the sign box or frame. Furthermore, a discreet pull tab is positioned in one corner that allows the graphic being displayed to be simply pulled from its housing and replaced by another. If required, security screws can be fitted to prevent unauthorised removal of the skin.

The NovaTex suite of profiles comprises a single-sided box section with a 83mm depth, a double-sided profile with a depth of 100mm and two single-sided framing sections measuring 40 x 19mm. Manufacture of the system could not be easier, with the 19mm frame featuring an internal chevron cleat system and the 40mm frame and two box sections being assembled using a ‘fast fit’ corner angle facility that delivers a perfect mitre joint. The two box sections can be LED-illuminated, while both frames can be backlit using LED light sheet.

NovaDisplay is another textile-based display system, but with a difference. As there is no silicone edge on the skin, the need for any face preparation prior to printing is eliminated. The skin is retained by use of a gripper arrangement located within the face and the graphic is simply pushed into its seating groove using the tool provided.

The ‘soft nose’ design of the system imparts an attractive edge to the visual. Two profiles are available: a single-sided box with a depth of 90mm and a double-sided box with a depth of 100mm. Both profiles make use of internal corner fastenings and can be used in freestanding, wall-mounted or suspended applications.
