Buyer's Guide For Roll Up Displays

What is a Roll-Up Banner?

A roll-up or pull-up mechanical system is integrated on a stand and provides a display that can be easily retracted into a compact case after use. It is the perfect way in spreading your message, promotional advertisement, or graphic designs at a store entrance, lobby, or any high trafficked area. It will be your ally of choice for an effective communication display at any social gathering or event.

The advertising message is stored inside an aluminum case, along with a spring-loaded rolling system. To implement the roll-up component, your banner is installed and taken down in just minutes. It's that simple, swivel out the feet, pull up your banner and your message will be exhibited independently.

The advantage of this product is how compact this banner is, ideal for storage. The aluminum case protects the banner from creasing or any other damages and will keep your product in perfect condition. In addition, it comes with a carrying bag for easy and hassle-free transportation. Despite the rigid aluminum structure, this product is also very light and weighs about 2kg to 3kg depending on your choice of product.

What Materials Can Be Mounted For My Retractable or X Frame Banner?

The banners used for both products is a stretched canvas for a premium look. Our banners are made from Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC), a very solid and durable material. This material can be cut, shaped and welded easily and provides an excellent printing quality. It is important that the edge of the material does not curl or roll up which is why we chose the PVC. Ideal for indoor use with great fire rating properties and outdoor use for resistance against moisture, sun damage and extreme weather conditions.

If you are looking for an environmentally conscious option, you can select our polyester fabric coated with acrylic (PVC-free). This fabric gives off a matte textured finish, very close appearance to a canvas fabric and is also very resistant and durable over time. The polyester film can also be an option. The advantage of films in contrast to fabrics single use of material, making it easier to recycle after use. However, it may not be as dependable as it is a little more delicate and is not meant for being folded.

In some cases, it may be favourable to have opaque materials for printing support. This will increase the print quality perception as the product is not transparent. Having light around your banner can cast a shadow on the other side of the print and hinders the visibility of your message or graphic. Our opaque fabric is layered with a grey backside It would be ideal to choose a fabric that will block out any light source passing through for an optimal display.

Our products are also designed for multiple use with interchangeable graphics, allowing you to reuse your frame for a different event or occasion.
