The trade show exhibitor uses tension fabric structures

  • According to Todd Bell, President of Warp Corp -a tension China Twill Fabric  exhibit manufacturer and supplier headquartered in Seattle, Washington -fabric and aluminum tubing trade show exhibit structures have the advantage of being dramatic, lightweight, easy to pack, and travel smoothly.Among the advantages of dye-sublimation are color saturation, durability, and choice of substrates to match most needs.

    The trade show exhibitor uses tension fabric structures with a variety of interesting shapes as an attention-getter to show strollers within view of their trade show booth. From curvy conference rooms to rocket- like towers, to hanging signs shaped as cones, disks, dishes, rounds, triangles, etc., to imaginatively shaped backwalls and wings at the trade show display, these tension fabrics are artfully designed and stretched over aluminum frames.

    The fabric can offer flexibility in size since it is cut, dyed, and sewn, and then stretched onto aluminum tubing that is welded and rolled to the required dimensions of the trade show exhibit designer.

    The use of a dye-sublimation process, that transfers digital color images to fabric, enhances the design of the tension fabric. The process involves heat and pressure, creating a very vibrant and durable image, capable of withstanding abuse and exposure. The image embedded onto the fabric does not run, smear, or peel off the underlying fabric.

    Depending on the look and use of the trade show display designer's graphics, there are an enormous variety of China Tricot  fabrics to choose from. Lycra and metallic fabrics are very popular. Some fabric is sheer while other material is heavy and opaque. The use of thin, gauzy fabric allows light diffusion which can become translucent and allow images to appear and disappear.
