Custom Exhibit Display Company, Gilbert, Discusses Their Favorite Materials to Create Displays With

MELVILLE, N.Y., Nov. 21, 2017 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Custom trade show exhibit company, Gilbert, shares details about their go-to materials for exhibit builds.

A top-notch exhibit is created from strong and durable materials. When selecting materials, it's important to consider the style you're trying to achieve with your exhibit. You'll also want to select materials that fit your budget. With a seemingly endless array of finishing options, exhibitors can get a booth tailored to their desired style.

To assist exhibitors, Gilbert shares four of their favorite materials to work with, and why they are advantageous:

1.   Tension fabrics. Exhibits created using tension fabrics feature a frame, typically constructed from wood, steel, plastic, or aluminum, and a strong fabric cover. The fabric cover is stretched over the frame and the exhibit takes its desired shape. According to Gilbert's expert team of craftsmen, tension fabrics are a popular trend right now. Tension fabrics give exhibitors the ability to keep weight and drayage costs down. They also make it easier to create organic shapes. 

2.    Wood. Gilbert uses a variety of hardwoods to create masterful exhibits. With access to a large array of stains and lacquers, their finishing department elevates wood exhibits using decorative finishes. Gilbert has used reclaimed wood for vendors looking to showcase a rustic vibe. Laminate is also available, and offers a cost-effective alternative to wood.

3.   Metals. Gilbert uses metal materials to create exhibits with rustic and industrial vibes. Metal materials can be customized to fit a variety of preferences through finishing.

4.   Plastics and acrylics. Gilbert takes pride in bringing high-end elements to custom exhibits. That's why they always have their eye out for new developments in plastics, acrylics, and resin materials. Plastics and acrylics create smooth, slick, heavy, and translucent both designs. Those seeking a top-notch booth design will get it with these materials.
