LEK® Connector System


An elegant and robust alternative to pop-up banner stands and homemade panel displays.

LEK Frameworks are suitable for temporary or traveling exhibits that need to age well over years of use.

All LEK parts are built to last:

  • The posts are stout 1/8" thick aircraft-grade aluminum.
  • The connectors are aluminum as well: CNC machined out of solid stock.
  • The feet are 1/4" thick laser-cut steel.
  • All parts are powder coated for extreme wear resistance.

We offer a few different configurations that have been popular sellers, but remember that this is just a connector system. If you want to build a different configuration, give us a call or send us a sketch!


Note that LEK is relatively lightweight, but our goal is for it to be the best option for exhibits that need to last for years on the road. If you need something to be setup and taken down on a daily basis, there are likely cheaper systems that would better serve your purposes.

If you're curious about whether LEK is a good fit for your project, we'd be happy to provide an honest assessment--just give us a shout!

Disadvantages

  • Hanging banners can sway slightly
  • Dye-sub fabric printing is not as sharp as printing to vinyl
LEK Rigid Panel

Rigid Wooden Panels w/ Adhesive Vinyl Graphics


Advantages

  • Easily mount items to 3/4" thick rigid panel with screws
  • Prints to adhesive-backed vinyl are higher resolution

Disadvantages

  • Depending on the size of the panel, the units can be difficult to crate (and heavy!)
