Frame of Reference
Having to remove frames from a wall to change out the graphics is a challenge most clients don’t want to bother with. The FlipUp Frame from Alpina Manufacturing solves that problem. Engineered in five styles – Front Load, Security, Slide-In, Mini FlipUp, and Rounded Corner – the FlipUp Frame is available in various colors (including woodgrain) and all models are made of anodized aluminum. The Front Load is a standard finger-open frame in 1.25- and 2.50-in.-wide profiles, while the Security requires a simple tool to open (1.25- and 1.75-in.-wide profiles); both accommodate graphics up to 0.50-in. thick and can be produced in any size. The Rounded Corner FlipUp, as the name implies, features rounded corners and is available in 1.00- and 1.25-in. profiles; 30 x 40-in. max (thin graphics only).

Also available are: the Slide-In, for very rapid graphic changeouts (top or side; not recommended for graphics larger than 25 x 37 in.); and the Mini FlipUp, which features a 0.60-in.-wide profile and a 30 x 40-in. max frame size.


Cornering the Market
Pointing the way doesn’t have to be mundane. The newly developed Flat Corner Signage family of products from Vista System International is designed to offer an attractive solution for both interior and exterior building corner applications. The signs range in size reaching up to 39.4 in. wide; custom sizes are also available upon demand.

The Flat Corner products utilize the company’s GreenSquare Float design, which features an attached floating profile designed to allow the sign frames to “float” a couple of inches from the wall and provide a modern, eye-catching look. The GreenSquare system is based on flat frames with graded inner channels that accept inserts of various materials and widths, up to 0.126-in. thick.


Wind is Optional
Tex Visions’ new Bowflag Premium product line features three models/shapes – Scoop, Shield, and Arrow – and none of these require wind to be displayed. Similar to the company’s Bowflag Plus series, the Bowflag Premium shapes use aviation-grade, silver-gray fiberglass poles. Graphics extend to the pole sleeve, no tools are required for assembly, and an economy bag is included for easy storage and transport.
