How Are Display Boards Made?

Display boards are made from a honeycomb core. The hexagonal structure of the board allows for added durability and rigidity; therefore allowing display boards to withstand regular use without damage.

The centre of the board is wrapped in a fire-rated loop nylon felt which is available in a wide choice of colours. The loop nylon provides a soft and deluxe appearance perfect for any marketing campaign.

Presentation boards are then affixed with either a PVC trim or an aluminium extrusion for a professional and refined finish.
