Shell Clad Example Pictures

Shell Clad adapters are simple plastic connectors that can be attached to most common exhibition shell schemes. Shell Clad adapters simply clip-on to the upright aluminium pillars of the shell scheme and provide a velcro face onto which printed graphics can be attached quickly and easily.

By using Shell-Clad adapter clips, it is possible to print graphic panels at specific sizes so as allow them to tile up side-by-side. This allows the printed panels to form a continuous mural wall that can run all the way around the shell scheme.

The following pictures show several examples of Shell Clad adapters supporting graphics printed onto various types of material.

Graphic panels for use with Shell-Clad adapter clips can be printed onto a range of materials as follows:

  • Heavyweight polyester film with crystal lamination – 450 microns thickness. Panels are printed in sections and can be rolled.
  • 5mm Foamex Panels – 5mm thick PVC sheet material. A very smooth graphic finish as with Magi-Clad but panels must be transported flat (transit sized van required). Foamex panels can support objects like small TV screens, shelves etc by screwing/fastening directly to them
  • Fabric ‘Fabri-Clad’ Graphics – Fabri-Clad graphics are printed in one continuous piece rather than as a series of individual panels. There are no seams or joins between panels and graphics can be folded for transport.
  • Magi-Clad Graphic Panels – Panels are backed onto a 4mm thick rollable corrugated plastic. Extra rigidity provides the smoothest graphic finish. Magi-Clad panels have the benefits of a rigid panel but in a format that can be rolled for convenient transport / storage. Please note there is a £60 charge per panel for this material.
