LED Lighted Portable Displays

How to light up a crowd.

Portable 8ft & 10ft back wall displays for use at trade shows have gone through a myriad of minor style changes over the last 35 years. But nothing truly significant, until recently. With the advent of SEG fabric graphics and LED lighting you now have an entirely new way to visually compete at show site.

This new family of displays with taut, LED rear-lighted Silicone Edge Graphics (SEG) and modular lightweight SEG compatible aluminum frames offer an exciting new way to promote your brand and message.

LED Lighted Portable Displays

Although the frame styles have changed a bit, in most cases the hardware technology has retained the original purpose. That is to provide a large graphic backdrop, ease of setup (often by the exhibitor) with minimal shipping costs and minimal handling costs.

There are currently three distinctly different styles of LED lighted, portable back wall display frames on the market. Although all will give you a large mural sized graphic and LED rear lighting they each arrive at that point from different directions.

Style 1) PopUp frame style
Style 2) Folding frame style
Style 3) Post & Rail style frame


The PopUp frame style

STYLE 1 is probably the most familiar frame style seen at show site. It is a large umbrella style frame used to create many small back wall exhibits. When closed they compactly fit into a bag or rolling/carry case. When opened they create a large 8ft or 10ft back wall upon which to mount your brand and message. The LED lighting hardware is hung from the internal frame and includes both a printed graphic and a white fabric “backer” used to “bounce” additional light onto the rear of the SEG print graphic. With experience this product can expect to be setup in approx. 30-60 minutes.

The Folding frame style

STYLE 2 is the most unique frame style of the three types. It is composed of four folding corners that when joined form the rectangular back wall frame. With pre-attached LED, inline plug connections and a single cord (running to the included low wattage transformer) lighting is simple. This system also includes both a printed graphic and a white fabric “backer” used to “bounce” additional light onto the rear of the SEG print graphic. The manufacturer promotes this product with a setup time of approx. 10 minutes (once familiar with this product).

The Post & Rail frame style

STYLE 3 is an assembled frame using vertical posts with locking feet and locking horizontal rails. All posts and rails are fabricated of extruded aluminum with internally wired LED lighting components. This system includes more small part than the other two styles and does require more assembly. It’s strong suit is that it can be ordered in custom heights and widths including additional LED lighting configurations. This system also includes both a printed graphic and a white fabric “backer” used to “bounce” additional light onto the rear of the SEG print graphic. Note: This frame product is built to order.
