Why You Should Choose A Fabric Tension Frame?

Tension Fabric Frames is a quick and easy method of producing branding opportunities and help create brand appeal, highlight your brand messaging and promote your products or services in a professional manner. The system can be implemented by our fitters or your staff, all you need is an Allen key to construct our framework, simply push the silicone edge into the aluminium grooves, and create your highly effective finish. 

We test every single frame and graphic that leaves our aluminium factory, ensuring no nasty surprises when it arrives at the site. The best benefit of a fabric tension frame is it’s completely scalable, meaning you can customise the shape and size to fit your requirements, and still deliver your project with next-level visuals.

Our Greener Approach to Fabric Systems

We offer all of our systems on a hire basis, meaning you save ⅓ of the cost of purchasing the systems! So if you are looking for a single structure, save yourself the hassle of installing the job yourself and let our expert team print, install and de-rig your entire event! 


Our aluminium framework is easily broken down, meaning that storage and transportation are quick and simple. Why? Because it allows our clients to use cars instead of vans for their systems and can be used across multiple events, saving on the cost and the hassle of buying a new system for your offices or relying on basic shell schemes at an exhibition centre. Simply replace your graphic for the latest promotion you are running and refresh your look and feel with minimal effort and time spent. 


All of our print is PVC-free too, meaning the entire element of the frame is reusable and recyclable, a statement we are incredibly proud of. We can also produce print to 5m width without the need for welds and can be printed with UV curing techniques or Dye Sublimation and their water-based inks, depending on preferences and location. 

Silicone Edge Graphics - Grafit Display Hire.jpg

How Our Silicone Edge Graphics Work

Silicone Edge Displays are how we produce our fabric systems, but some people aren’t aware of what that means or how you use it. What it means is sewing silicone around the edge of the entire graphic, which can be done across the black back and front-lit materials, creating the same perimeter around the banner. We then take the silicone edge and insert it into the open space within our aluminium frames, ensuring that the silicone is not visible and completely subdued into the metal.


This effect allows the material to be in a constant state of stretch, meaning an extremely tight, drum-like effect within the frame to ensure no bobbles and a smooth finish throughout.

Need to keep the framework up but change the messaging? Silicone edging means that you can take out and replace graphics within just a few minutes, saving customers money and allowing brands to simply replace the graphics as opposed to the entire unit.

Tension Fabric Systems is commonly known as TFS, a lightweight graphic display that produces a simple and effective display offering for brands. The easy-to-install display are also inexpensive, meaning they are the perfect solution for brands working on a budget, or those who require bespoke-sized structures. 


What Material does TFS use? 

Tension fabric's material is a PVC-free solution created to be stretched taut across a rigid frame. All tension fabrics are durable, but the most popular option is polyester. Whilst the material may change for structures or lightboxes, the materials we use are always PVC-free.


What Is The Lifespan Of A Tension Fabric System?

The tension fabric display element can last a lifetime! It all depends on whether you look after the frame and whether it is static or constantly moving. The cost-effective fabrics we use have a lifecycle of 10 to 20 years in controlled environments. Systems that are outside, can have a lower lifecycle due to weather and fading.
