What ever happened to panel displays? These are the most solid looking of the modular displays. They have solid walls and usually have a carpet covering - for good looks or to adhere trade show graphics to. We used to sell a lot of panel displays – and for good reason. In the right environment, few things work as well. Sure, aluminum modular display systems and truss displays - and even basic pop up displays have cut into their market. But the panel display is still the best when it comes to specific situations. Read on.
When would you consider a panel display? They excel when you need storage and counter space and you prefer to have it built in, not free standing (as in a portable podium). The are also great iif you are going to a retail show, because you can get hanger bars, waterfalls and other retail display hardware to work well in the panel display.
Panel displays are modular, too. So you can buy upgrade and add on kits to reconfigure them. Now, don’t let your imagination run wild, because a panel display is usually made of plywood or particle board, and it doesn’t have the nifty connectors and standard sections that a truss or modular system will have. But you can definitely change their look.
Also, because a panel systems is sturdy, you’ll likely find options for greater height than you’ll see in the modular lineups. You will fine nice features like built in lighting, too, that make the panel system seem more solid and lasting.
Of course, every advantage comes with disadvantages. The panel systems are heavier than many other modular systems, they ship in bigger cases and require labor at the trade show. So they’re going to cost more to move around, set up and break down. And they tend to be more difficult to find replacement parts for, so treat them carefully. But if you have a need for a solid performer with a traditional look, give panel displays a try.
