Praxis, specialists in large format graphics, have three new products. The first is Praxis Manifest, an exterior banner system that the company says is 'innovative'.
Like its interior counterpart, Mono, Manifest has been developed to make sure that only the graphics get noticed, not the structure that supports it. Manifest’s 'clever' design features a simple two-part rail which captures the top and bottom edges of the graphic, keeping it in tension by an adjustment mechanism.
Manifest works well in any architectural setting; the rails can be powder coated in any RAL colour to match the exterior and surroundings. The components are machined from 316 grade stainless steel to give a long outdoor life.
Graphics can be printed on a range of fabrics, including solid PVC for 'striking' image quality and Mesh 3124, which is ideal for exposed situations as air can pass through it. As with all our products, Praxis use the latest in digital print technology to 'reproduce any design faithfully'.
Manifest offers a number of options for installation. It can be wall-mounted as standard and single or double projecting if the supporting wall is structurally sound. Projecting banners can go up to 1.5m in width.
A post-mounted banner option with either a centre or side post is also available as are banners up to 1.5m wide x 5m high.
Following on from the huge success of Kube illuminated, Praxis have expanded and enhanced their range of illuminated graphic products with the launch of the Kube illuminated double-sided screen.
As with the all the Kube illuminated products, 'bold, long-lasting' graphic prints can be inserted into the frame and replaced with ease. At only 70mm in depth this screen is decidedly less bulky than comparable products on the market, according to the company.
The frame design reflects light right up to the edge, to make sure that the graphic on each side is equally bright and evenly lit. This product can be used a free standing screen, ceiling hung or wall projecting. Sizes can go up to 2000mm high x 1500mm wide.
As with all Kube illuminated products, long-lasting LED lighting uses less energy and generates less heat than conventional illumination, says Praxis.
They've also introduced Kube illuminated slimline. While the standard Kube illuminated frame 59 is ideal for many settings, their clients’ asked if they can make a thinner version. So the Kube illuminated slimline combines 'bold, bright graphics with a sleek 20mm frame'.
As with standard Kube illuminated, the slimline frame ensures that graphic prints are easy to insert and update. 'Unfluctuating' illumination is achieved using a patented 8mm thick clear acrylic LED Light Sheet. A 3D matrix machined into the sheet carries and transmits light evenly across the whole surface.
Kube illuminated slimline uses less energy than conventional illuminated products; 70 per cent less than T5 fluorescents and 30 per cent less than CCFL. The illumination runs cool to the touch and offers a long life span; up to 50,000 hours or 11 years, running 12 hours per day.
Kube illuminated slimline sizes start at A4 (210mm x 297mm) and go up to 1500mm x 3000mm.
