Typical Modulate™ Display Building Block 1.5M wide x 2M tall

Modulate™ Displays were introduced in 2018 by leading portable
displays manufacturer Ultima Displays. The Modulate™ system represents a
development when compared to conventional ‘tube’ displays that are
widely available today (sometimes referred to as TEXStyle or Formulate

The Modulate™ Display System builds on the practicality of a fabric
tube display (lightweight and easy to assemble) by offering the primary
advantage of being linkable. In other words, you can purchase multiple
display frames and join them together to create much larger display
stand configurations of varying shape and size.


So, how does it work?….. The Modulate™ system uses a tubular
aluminium frame that push fits together. To keep the process of assembly
as simple and straight-forward as possible, the vast majority of tube
sections are pre-connected with elasticated bungee cords. This means you
can break apart the main sections of the frame without having to piece
so many individual sections together again when it comes to re-building

Assembling a Modulate™ stand is very simple and a typical frame goes
together in a few minutes . Once the frame is constructed, the printed
fabric graphic simply slips over the top and zips-closed at ground level
to secure it in place. You can attach the graphic to the frame whilst
it is standing up or alternatively we found that it’s easier to lie the
frame on it’s back to fit the graphic (if you are shorter!).

The visual effect on the Modulate™ Display really is very good. The
fabric graphic is made from a highly elastic polyester material so it
tensions without any unsightly creases or wrinkles (even if the print
has been stored/folded for an extended period of time). Colour
reproduction is also very strong and vibrant too when graphics are
printed using a dye sublimation print process onto quality fabric

So, what type of stands can be constructed with the Modulate™ Displays?…. All sorts!

Every single section of frame can be connected together by simply
offering two stands up to one-another. The magnetic connection is hidden
within the vertical tube sections of the frame and allows the angle of
the sections of Modulate™ to be adjusted when they are ‘snapped’
together. It is handy because you can essentially choose the shape of
the display while setting it up to fit the overall space you have to
work with.

Modulate™ frames are available with a selection of height and width
options so there is a choice of ‘building blocks’ to work with. To add
interest, some frames are available with top sections of the frame being
angled. Using such sloped sections of frame in the overall stand
configuration can give a more bespoke look to the overall stand

This solution is really aimed at those customers who are looking for
an exhibition system with an emphasis on portability but there is no
reason why this type of system could not be used within a retail
environment or other public space.

If you are looking for a display solution for a particular event
then Modulate™ Displays could certainly offer a solution. The examples
above show the Modulate™ system in use at a customer event. By working
with the client to establish the available floor space and shape, we
were able to propose a design solution in the form of a 3D CAD design
along with a quotation. There is no cost involved for producing a
concept design and of course the quote is obligation free.
