Impact Displays Inc. is the most Customer-oriented Company in the Trade Show Display industry. The success of our business can be attributed to our many satisfied repeat and referral Customers. We offer a unique combination of high quality products, at low competitive prices, with a positive purchasing experience that starts from your initial contact and continues after your Displays have been delivered. Here’s a list of things to consider when comparing Impact Displays Inc. to our competition:

THINGS TO CONSIDER BEFORE MAKING YOUR PURCHASE:

How reputable is the company?

We have been in business for over 25 years and have many satisfied customers all over the world. (references upon request)

How will my needs be served?

We always have someone to assist you during business hours.

·How knowledgeable is the business?

Trade Shows are our only business! (Not a side or fly-by-night business) We will be here when you need us.

What is the quality of the products?

We only sell quality products that we would buy ourselves. Beware of purchasing inferior products. Remember the saying, “You get what you pay for”?

How valuable is a lifetime warranty?

If the company is no longer in business, there is no value at all. As stated before, we have been in business for over 15 years and we stand behind all of our products.

How honest is the company?
We will never misrepresent our products or services. For example, there are many companies currently selling an 8ft Pop Up Display with only 3 main panels and oversize end panels and calling it a 10ft Display. This is a deceptive practice as you lose 25% of the area in which you can display your graphics.

Our goal is to make your dealings with Impact Displays a positive experience!

Banner Stands Info

Our Impact “X” or Economy Banner Stands are designed to hold banners that are 24″ wide.

The Impact “X” Stands has grommets in each of the four corners that attach the banner to the stand. The banner must be 24″w x 62″h to work properly on this stand.

The Economy Banner Stand requires pole pockets along the top and bottom edges, which accommodate the supplied dowels, which in turn slide into guides. Since this stand telescopes in height, it can accommodate banners anywhere from 24″ to 96″ in height.

If you have any further questions reagarding any of our banner stands, please don’t hesitate to call or contact us through our online form.

 

Display Booth Information

Yes. Our Pop Up Exhibit Displays are designed to be set-up easily and quickly by one person who may be working alone at a trade show. Pop up displays are made up of an expanding frame that “pops up” quickly and easily, vertical channel bars are attached to the frame, then, one-by-one, the fabric or graphic panels are easily hung onto the top of the frame and held to the channel bars by magnets to complete the setup. If you’re using Velcro graphics, these are easily affixed to the fabric panels.

If you have any questions regarding our Pop Up Displays, don’t hesitate to call or contact us through our online form.

The term “Pop Up Display” refers to the frame that is transported in a collapsed configuration. Then when the user is in need of the Display, he or she simply unpacks the frame from its case and expands and “pops up” the frame to its full width and height in one easy motion, magnetic mounting bars are then attached to the frame, creating a stationary Display to attach the Velcro-acceptable fabric and/or graphic panels. A full 10 foot Pop Up Display is designed to assemble in less than 20 minutes to create a large and impressive graphic backwall for your exhibit booth. Pop Up Displays have been a tried and true display for the trade show circuit due to the ease of transport and simplicity of set up.

Yes, you can check most 10 foot and smaller Pop Up Displays in as luggage. Our cases fit within the limits required by most of the airlines, although due to the size and/or weight of your display and transport case, your airline may charge an oversize luggage fee. (However, you should always double-check with your airline service to verify the restrictions of checking a pop up display and its transport case onto a flight, since airline protocols and procedures can always change).

If you have any questions regarding our Pop Up Displays and their shipping cases, please don’t hesitate to call or contact us through our online form.

No. Not at all. Pop Up Displays have been designed so that you can avoid the costly drayage and union labor fees found at most trade show venues. Generally, you are allowed to wheel in one container and assembly must not require any tools and must be able to be accomplished within a given time frame (usually 30 minutes to an hour). The 10 foot Pop Up Displays fulfill all of these requirements. However, it’s always a good practice to check with your venue to verify their rules and restrictions, since they may have their own procedures that don’t follow the standards.

Our Pop Up Displays are designed to grow with your future requirements. With that in mind, you can expand our Pop Ups by setting them side by side with other Pop Ups to form a variety of configurations. They are connected by using fabric and/or graphics panels to create one apparently seamless Display. Start with a 10ft., expand to a 20ft., even go up to a 30ft. if you need to. In additions, new panel graphics can be printed and used with existing frames, extending the life of your display. What makes all of this so desirable is that your initial investment is an investment in your future needs.

If you have a Podium Conversion Kit for your shipping case, storage at the show will not be an issue since your case transforms to become an integral part of your display booth by adding a panel that wraps around the case to transform it into a counter or podium. Most customers use this counter/podium to display literature, business cards, product samples, or even as a stand for a laptop computer. It also offers you another location to display graphics or a logo on the wrap panel that goes around the case.

If you have any questions regarding any of our displays and their shipping cases, don’t hesitate to call or contact us through our online form.

Yes. The flammability certifications are as follows:

1. Broadway fabrics are certified under the following specifications:
Tunnel Test – Class A (ASTM E 84)(NFPA 255)(Ansi 2.5) Ubc 8-1 (42-1)(UL 723)
Corner Burn Test – “Meets acceptance criteria” (UBC 8-2)(NFPA-265)

2. Crosspoint Vegas fabrics are certified under the following specifications:
Flammability: ASTM E Tunnel Test, Class A

3. Frontrunner and Prelude fabrics are certified under the following specifications:
ASTM E84-91a “Tunnel Test”: Complies with NFPA class A and UBC Class I,
UBC 8-2 (42-2, 1991 UBC)(fully lined protocol): Meets “acceptance criteria”

4. Premier fabrics are certified under the following specifications:
Meets Class A flame spread rating in accordance with ASTM E-84 “Tunnel Test”
Passes corner burn – NFPA 265, UBC 8-2 (formerly UBC 42-2)(fully lined protocol)

The fabric panels have a hanging mechanism along the top edge and magnetic strips along both vertical edges. The hangers position each panel at the top of the frame, while the magnetic strips adhere directly to the vertical magnetic channel bars that, in turn, have been attached to the Pop Up frame. We use magnet to magnet attaching technology to ensure simple, easy, and consistent panel alignment and proper adhesion. If you’re using smaller Velcro panel graphics, these panels just Velcro to the large fabric panels in any position you desire.

If you have any questions regarding our Pop Up Displays and assembly, please don’t hesitate to call us or contact us through our online form.

Yes, our Impact Lite and Expand 2000 Pop Up Displays all have options for external shelves. These shelves can be positioned anywhere vertically on each of the four main panels. Adding shelving to your pop up display will expand the functionality of your display and will give you the options to display items such as, product samples, literature (brochures or flyers), or even promotional trade show swag to attract potential clients into your booth! Showcasing physical items in your booth is a great way to bring in potential clients and help break the ice.

If you have any questions regarding our Pop Up Displays, don’t hesitate to call or contact us through our online form.

Yes. They set up and dismantle in minutes using no tools or equipment. Just fold and transport in the carrying bag (if purchased). With some options, the display is the carrying case, and they collapse into a briefcase style case with the graphics stored inside.  They are lightweight and they easily fit in the trunk of your car or even the back seat. Many units can also be taken on airlines as a carry on (depending on model) or checked in as luggage (recommended only if a hard shipping case is purchased).

If you have any questions regarding our folding tabletop displays, don’t hesitate to call or contact us through our online form.

Absolutely! Lighting can be ordered and added for all folding tabletop displays (except for the ShowStyle display which doesn’t have a lighting option). Lighting will bring a lot eye-catching pizazz to and will add an extra dimension to your display. Lighting will also help brighten up and showcase your display graphics making them much easier for your audience to read, which is the most important thing with graphics that contain text! We highly recommend adding lighting if it’s an option that will work with your display, and if it is within your display purchasing budget.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding our folding tabletop displays, don’t hesitate to call or contact us through our online form.

Our Pop Up Displays come standard with Velcro-acceptable fabric. You can simply Velcro attach your separate graphic panels anywhere on the fabric panels of the pop up display. Or, you can elect to use full Mural Graphics which are designed to take the place of one or more of the fabric panels and would run the full height of the Display to complete a full graphic mural across the entire back wall.

Both the fabric or graphic mural panels have hangers at the top of each panel, and magnetic strips behind each vertical edge. The panels hang at the top onto the frame, and then the vertical edges are positioned on the frame using the magnet strips to hold them against the frame and keep them in place. For a 10ft or smaller Pop Up, it will take around twenty minutes to set up the display out of the case.

The SOLO’s locking door is designed mainly to add privacy and a limited amount of security to any possessions kept inside your portable podium. However, any truly valuable items would be best left in a more secure location. The SOLO locking door is intended to be used mostly as a deterrent and to hide any items from anyone trying to look inside the podium, not as a secure safe.

So, with the SOLO, along with most any other trade show display with locking doors, it’s highly suggested that any true valuables you may have be kept in a different, more secure location

Warranty repairs cover all parts and labor, however shipping is at the Customer’s expense.
