Expand MediaFabric Is a Quick Setup

Lightweight trade-show graphic is easily portable

Big Picture

The Expand MediaFabric, from Expand Media, comprises graphic panels applied to a collapsible, lightweight aluminum frame with Velcro webbing. The panels can be one large seamless fabric image on a poly-knit material that's wrinkle- and flame-resistant, or multiple panels.

Weighing in at approximately 11 lbs, the Expand MediaFabric differs from the company's Expand BigFabric product (see The Big Picture, September '04, p.68) in several ways: It features a lighter and thinner aluminum framework, narrower Velcro webbing, and self-locking plastic connector hubs (versus the BigFabric's metal hooks). Set-up time, says the company, is less than 1 min.

The Expand MediaFabric comes with a nylon carrying bag and a protective nylon hood to keep graphics clean. A variety of sizes are available, ranging from 30 x 88 to 145 x 88 in. (Expand Media: www.expandmedia.com)
