The uniqueness of a tension fabric displays are evident and you are seeing them more and more on the tradeshow floor, in malls, museums, architecture and auto dealerships and all around your world. Wrinkle resistant and washable, our tension fabric exhibits feature the highest-quality dye sublimation printing in the industry. We carry both outdoor and indoor fabrics so your options allow representation of your company no matter where you are! Why is Tension Fabric the hottest new trend? The answer is simple. Fabric can be printed up to 10′ with no seams, producing long lasting eye-catching results. When they are tension mounted onto sleek aluminum frames, the portability is lighter weight for the impact you receive from any style of build available. When it comes to using fabric in design, a lot of people consider the lightweight nature of fabric. Tension fabric structures can be very small and easy to handle and transport, but once installed, it can be very large, impressive and cost effective.
Leading drivers for tension fabric integration into exhibit design today are cost, lighting, design architecture, color printing and fabric engineering. The world of design just got endless! Designers and fabric suppliers speak about how tension fabric structures are adding an awe-inspiring and inviting air to an exhibit, event or install. Printers rave about new dyes and fabrics that are more durable, yet rich and resplendent; fabrics and colors have designers dreaming big and thinking boldly. Lighting is adding new dimensions and emotion to fabric! One thing everyone can agree on, is that fabric integration in exhibit design is growing, evolving, and here to stay.
With Tension Fabric Structures an evolution has begun! A piece of silicone sewn along the edge of the fabric and that then fitted into a groove of special extrusion and you have what has been termed SEG…Silicone Edge Graphic.
SEG has its limitations when it applies to curves, but it has the special advantage of being perfect for back lit fabric structures. The trends I am seeing are: fabrics being engineered for specific applications for the exhibit and events industries, evolving fabric architecture, and a fusion of light and fabric.
Designers can choose from a variety of fabrics that offer multiple levels of opacity and an array of textures. Innovative designers are discovering hundreds of different fabrics that were not in existence for exhibit design until recently. Fabric can be used to capture and define space while evoking an emotional response from tradeshow or event attendees. Design with wild abandon!
