Modular Assembly: Attached Knobs and Locking Hex Key Connections (tool included)
One look at the Magellan Hybrid Display line and you know this is a display system that defies cliches. Magellan Hybrids are shocking and alluring and imaginative and unlike any other exhibit anywhere. They’re not for the cautious or the faint of heart, which is why they attract so much attention. Designers love them because they challenge how graphics are presented to exhibit attendees. No straight lines. No true 90 degree angles.
The durable aluminum frame sets-up in less than 60 minutes for a 10 x 10 using quick-assist knobs, and the tension fabric graphics attach with Velcro. It’s that easy. When it’s time to go, there’s no worries since all parts are numbered and every component packs securely into custom die-cut foam packaging. Every part has a place, every component has a home. That’s the beauty of the Magellan Hybrid Displays.
The system is named after Ferdinand Magellan, the Portuguese explorer whose expedition resulted in the first circumnavigation of the earth. Magellan sailed from Seville in August 1519 with five ships. After three years, one ship, the Victoria, returned to Spain on September 1522.
Hybrid is a relatively new category of trade show displays. Generally, hybrid displays incorporate aluminum extrusion, tension fabric, and other display components such as laminates, wood, Sintra, and other materials to create a tabletop, inline, or island exhibit.
Hybrids make liberal use of multiple components to create unique, lightweight displays. Hybrids can be portable, modular, or custom depending on the size and the requirements. Sacagawea, Visionary Designs, Magellan, and Perfect 10 are all considered hybrids.
With Visionary Designs, anything is possible – portable, modular, custom, and custom-hybrid designs. Visionary Designs can be any size, any shape, any configuration. Think of the display kits as idea generators rather than final designs.
Sacagawea blends upscale design with aggressive pricing that’s perfect for anyone looking for a lightweight hybrid display. Choose from three attractive design series, 65 compact and versatile displays, and terrific 10 ft. and 20 ft. configurations with multiple options.
Anyone who loves curves, loves Magellan because the kits are all about curved metal and large tension fabric graphics. The most popular have been the Miracle and MOR, which (not surprisingly) are also the most affordable.
Perfect 10 assembles without tools and comes in a mind-boggling assortment of color and shape options, all included in the standard price.There's no other display like Perfect 10, because not other system has the patented Perfect 10 S-Shape.
Bottom Line: Extensive extrusion options, hex key assembly, small, medium, and large graphics (including SEG), unlimited designs, inlines, islands, and table tops. Visionary Designs includes the new SEGUE line of Silicone Edge Graphic displays, which maximizes graphics and minimizes visible extrusion.
Tension fabric graphics attach to a frame so the fabric is taut edge-to-edge, creating “tension.” Typically, the graphic has Velcro hook sewn along the border, usually top and bottom, and attaches to Velcro loop on the frame. A silicone bead or welting can also be sewn to the edge of the tension fabric graphic. Those are referred to as Silicone Edge Graphics(SEG).
What are the benefits of fabric graphics vs. traditional first surface graphics?
All SEGUE Hybrid Displays are designed with TSP aluminum extrusions which accept Silicone Edge Graphics. Silicone Edge Graphics (or SEG) is a high-resolution dye-sublimated fabric graphic finished with a thin silicone strip (or welt/gasket). The silicone strip is sewn directly to the edge of the graphic, and the strip is then inserted into an aluminum frame with a recessed groove.
The goal of a SEGUE design, unlike other hybrid designs, is to minimize the appearance of aluminum extrusion. In most SEGUE designs, you see far less aluminum extrusion than if the display was built using traditional alumunum profiles. Good examples of SEGUE designs include:
We recommend washing in your washing machine, cold setting, with a mild detergent and letting air dry. Please DO NOT dry clean.
Trade show regulations vary slightly from venue to venue, but most North American halls adhere to these common regulations for inline and island booths. Exhibitors with international experience will recognize that North American rules are very different from those in Europe and Asia. For example:
Standard/Linear Booth (10' depth)
Any booth that shares a common back wall and abuts other exhibits on one or two sides.
Maximum height is 8 ft. This 8 ft. height may be maintained on the sidewall of your booth up to a distance of 5 ft. from the front aisle. The remaining length of the sidewall may be no higher than 4 ft.
In European shows, the display may extend 8 ft. to the aisle, which is uncommon in North American shows.
