Shell Clad is a plastic adapter clip that works in conjunction with all major exhibition shell schemes. Rather than sticking prints in-between the posts on the shell scheme, the shell-clad adapter allows the panels to span over the top of the posts and butt-up next to one another.
The finished effect of a shell clad exhibition stand looks greatly improved when compared to simply slotting panels in-between the posts. This is because the panels have a seamless graphic effect which allows you to create interesting artwork layouts rather than smaller stand-alone posters.
There are a number of companies in the UK who offer shell clad adapters and print their own graphic panels to suit. The way in which the graphic panels are produced varies from one supplier to another.
Since, arguably it is the graphic panels that are the most important part of a shell clad exhibition stand, it’s important that you choose a company who uses the right materials in the graphics production to yield the best result.
For economy graphics, we can supply shell clad graphics printed onto a heavyweight Opal Jet polyester which is laminated with a scratch resistant finish film. The panels are cost effective and rollable.
For a premium quality graphic, Printdesigns Limited have developed a new, fluted backing that is applied to the rear of the shell clad print. When applied to the backing provides maximum rigidity over the panel width whilst still allowing the panels to roll-up.
Our premium backing for shell clad graphics is derived from existing flat sheets which are then contour scored using a digtal state of the art Zund cutter to provide the finished rollable snake that is bonded permanently to the rear of the panel. The finished result is superior given that the panel has the structural appearance of a rigid board but the portability of a rollable graphic.
