What are Tension Fabric Displays?

Posted by

Tension fabric displays are ideal for presenting a polished, professional appearance with minimal effort. In short, tension fabric displays are any display where the main graphic is being stretched or put under tension on the display's frame. Hop Displays are one variation of a tension fabric display; the main graphic adheres to the pop up frame with Velcro. This graphic stretches to fit the frame, and you can leave the graphic attached to the collapsed frame, for easy storage. Another variation of tension fabric displays are "tube frames" where the graphic simply slips over the frame like a pillowcase and is zipped shut. Because the graphic is stretched using tension, wrinkles, if any, on the graphic will be minimal. GLM Displays has multiple variations of Tension Fabric Displays, each providing their own unique benefits. 

One example of the tube style would be the EZ Tube displays. They have a sturdy aluminum frame and a pillowcase fabric graphic. Assembly takes just 5 minutes: slide the tubes together and lock in place with a push button snap. Then, simply pull the pillowcase graphic over the frame and zip to shut. The zipper, hidden from view, tightens the stretch fabric to seamlessly display your business or product. The EZ Tube has a lower cost and 10 different size options from a 6ft Table Top display to a 20-foot Backwall. Complete your display with EZ Tube Counters!

Formulate Fabric Displays have the largest selection, so you’ll be sure to find a display that fits your brand perfectly. These displays are superior in design and quality. One collection from the Formulate family is the Formulate Designer Series. These 10, 20 and 30-foot displays have unique shapes and a wide variety of additions: monitors mounts, shelving, literature racks, backwall accents, and many more! Each Formulate Display is made in the United States, and each Formulate structure is comprised of a lightweight, aluminum tube frame and zipper pillowcase fabric graphic.

Another versatile set of tension fabric displays is the Modulate Reconfigurable Kits. Start with a 30-foot wide kit and easily reconfigure the display into 20-foot or 10-foot wide displays. These displays are an excellent choice if you are attending multiple trade show events with varying booth sizes. If the predetermined kits don’t appeal to you, you can create your own display using the Modulate Mix and Match Banner Stands. Start small with one or two banners and grow your display right alongside of your business. These banners can easily be connected to one another using a unique snap-together clamping system. Like the other displays mentioned, the Modulate Displays have a lightweight, aluminum tube frame with a zipper pillowcase fabric graphic. 

Tension fabric displays aren’t limited to just backwall displays. GLM Displays offers  Funnels and Towers, as well, to take your trade show display to new heights. 

Speaking of heights, Hanging Skybox Banners are great for creating a focal point for your display. Using these banners will make sure your message is seen from every angle.

The options for tension fabric displays are endless. If you're not quite sure where to start in your trade show display journey, try one (or more!) of our many tension fabric displays. Contact GLM Displays today for more information!
