T3 Fabframe modular display system has been designed to carry printed fabrics or textile graphics, and works around a simple patented connector. Strong, and completely re-configurable, the display system enables interchangeable panels to be fitted quickly and easily, with no tools required, offering unrivalled flexibility and speed of build.
With no rigid or rollable panels to line up, the durable and lightweight fabrics can be speedily applied to the framework in large or small sections, creating seamless, smooth and stunning professional displays.
Without the need for large, heavy duty graphic drums, the tension fabrics and textiles will easily fit into a carry bag, saving you money on transport. To add to this, the material can be washed to remove unwanted marks, meaning reduced costs in replacing panels.
T3 tubes are assembled with steel tape in order for magnetic graphics to be used. The most common tube type for magnetic graphics is the original T3 Airframe tube although Fusion tube can also be used. The steel is cut to size and placed on the prepared tubes with double sided tape for a strong affective adhesion. Further details on our T3 tube types can be found here. Videos of steel assembly can be found on our YouTube page by clicking here.
We suggest Roll up graphics with carefully placed magnetic ribbon as shown below. This material is readily available at your local printers. For best results we recommend you do not exceed the 800mm panel width. Magnetic roll up graphics are extremely easy to assemble and as you can see in our gallery the results are exceptional.
We can provide readymade tubes or provide the material required for in house assembly.
Steel tape is available in 24mm or 25mm thickness in rolls of 147m. Mag tape is available in 12.5mm or 25mm rolls of 30m

Shellkit has been designed to enable shell scheme stands to be clad quickly and effectively. Using the specially designed clamp, tubes are easily fitted to the shell scheme walls. This creates an extremely strong and rigid framework. The design of the clamp means you are not restricted to having panel sizes the same width as the shell scheme panels.
This will save you money and time in installation and dismantling and in the material required. You dont need to cover the entire shell scheme wall either as the framework can be fitted so it “floats” on the supporting wall.
The framework is then clad with flexible, rigid or fabric panels to create a seamless graphic wall just 60mm deep, thus using up a tiny amount of your costly stand space. Large walls can be installed and clad in a matter of minutes. The framework can be broken down into easily manageable tube lengths for ease of transport in the boot of a car.
Standard tubes enable you to re-use your existing graphics in a more effective way. No tools, lightweight, easy and versatile.
T3 Systems is helping retail designers unleash their creativity, offering a cost-effective, modular display solution with new products and profiles that will make it the most adaptable system on the market today.
And the team is leading by example, by building its entire exhibition stand using only T3 Systems and utilising partner product Wandlite for the state-of-the-art LED tube lighting (stand 5/C11).
The T3 System – based around Tecna Displays unique twist and lock modular framework – allows unlimited options for designers building retail spaces and the ease of graphics replacement ensures shops can always keep up with seasonal changes and promotions.
The T3 stand will showcase a new litebox profile and the new Media Vision multiple media booth, both being launched at the show, plus:
· An illuminated back wall
· A new photobooth package deal
· A dedicated Wandlite area
· Free-standing LightWalls
· Interactive screens and tablets integrated into the stand design.
The integrated Wandlite booth on the stand will be used to demonstrate the Wandlite lighting solution and its capabilities when it comes to the display industry. The versatile, long-life LED tube light with 360 degree lighting is perfect for modular display systems including plinths, light walls, counters, flooring and towers.
And the many tablets and screens dotted around the display will not only allow visitors to learn more about the product through a variety of animations created by the design team, they also demonstrate the ease of creating a space-saving, interactive and easy-to-update display area.
Jonathan Evitt, MD of Tecna Display and The Wandlite Company said: “Theres a lot of interest in building your own displays and allowing your own creative ideas to come to life today – you only have to look at the increasing popularity of Lego for adults to see that!
“Were using our T3 Systems stand to tap into that feeling of curiosity and creativity that allows designers to come up with unique and effective individual exhibition and retail spaces that perfectly fit their needs, and that can be taken apart and rebuilt differently as and when those needs change.”

Canadian trade show and exhibition specialists Best Display and Graphics recently completed a display stand for Element Nutrition thats stunning in both its design and functionality.
Using the UK manufactured T3 modular framework system, Best Displays designed and created a fully-convertible exhibition framework that can either be used as a 6m x 3m display space or transform into a 3m x 3m stand.
The ability to convert the stand into different configurations was the dealmaking feature for Element Nutrition, who needed a display that could either focus on a single brand or incorporate graphics for both brands, in either size.
Philippe van Ameyde from Tecna Display said: “Designing and creating a stand that could convert and look complete in both configurations was no easy task, but Best Displays managed to meet these requirements perfectly. The modular design of T3 provided the unmatched level of flexibility and professional finish needed to make the stand possible.”
The stand also featured two bridges that were used to display a variety of small products which would have normally been lost to the public eye. A large monitor was also easily incorporated into the framework using T3 monitor support brackets, allowing the client to show a variety of promotional product videos.
Magali Fuller from Best Displays said: “Element Nutrition found the display very quick and easy to assemble. We provided precise and easy to follow directions and that, coupled with the patented twist lock, no tools assembly system of the T3 framework, meant the stand was built by the client at the venue without problems.
“The travel cases used to store and transport the whole stand were easy to use and compact meaning that the client could transport them in their own vehicle, and sturdy enough for it to be brought back to the office by a third party.”

Specialist design agency Ateliers located in Gallius, France recently used Tecna Displays T3 systems to design and build an exceptional stand for a huge household name Coca–Cola.
Under the promotional advertising campaign of Discover the secrets of production for Coca-Cola, the stand was designed to be used by Coca-Cola European Partners on a tour of the companys numerous production houses around France with some key factoids about those facilities.
Using the UK-manufactured T3 modular framework system, Ateliers created a 5m x 3m x 2.4m high stand using a design that resembled a small café. It included some unique features including a functioning door and three indented alcoves which were used to depict windows. It also included a 1.2m x 0.3m counter.
Tecna Displays Mukesh Kansara said: “The framework for the stand was created using the T3 fusion and channel tubes which allow for the most versatility when it comes to graphic types and additional attachments. Due to the height of the structure, channel braces were used to secure the top section and provide extra rigidity and strength to the structure. The counter was created by using the T3 fusion tube.
“Ateliers used a textile fabric with silicon edging for the graphics which allows for easy installation and a clean finish to the display. They made use of a combination of T3 Systems standard Silverlite for the internal corners and 45° Silverlite for the outside panels so that there is seamless edge to the stand and its graphics. A similar layout was used for the counter.”
The entire stand was packed into two compact travel cases which fitted into the back of small van. At the various venues where the stand was showcased it was unpacked and assembled by two members of the Ateliers team in four and half hours without the use of tools.
Mukesh added: “A lot of work went into the design and manufacture of this stand, so its fantastic to see such a stunning result with the product.”

Yumark, the Dutch distributor of the T3 modular framework system, recently supplied a stunning display incorporating Wandlite lighting to specialist exhibition and display design agency Beaufair Expo.
Beaufair Expo used the UK-manufactured T3 system to create and build a 48-square metre stand to promote Meesterweek, the largest event and recruitment fair for law students in Benelux hosted in Rotterdam, Holland.
Beaufair used T3 Fusion tubes to create a large back wall with fabric print. The fabric used for the graphics was lined with silicon edging which fitted into T3s standard Silverlite graphic inserts.
Philippe van Ameyde from Tecna Display said: “T3 is a great system to work with, its easy to transport and simple to assemble and install without the use of tools. The use of graphics printed onto textiles allows exhibition designers to easily install, refresh and change displays. Yumark are doing some fantastic work with the likes of Beaufair Expo and were delighted to be working with them.”
The stand also featured six internally lit, old fluid containers. The large plastic containers were lit by using the revolutionary 360° Wandlite LED tube, which provided an alternating RGB colour scheme. The Wandlite also provides a brilliant white light for the use in exhibitions and displays.
Aad Verboom from Beaufair Expo added: “The T3 System made the stand a complete success. The fact that we can easily assemble the stand with two people in under three hours makes it very cost and time effective and the Wandlite LED tubes with the adjustable colours are a real show stopper.”

US-based Olson Visual recently used Tecna Displays T3 systems to put together a stunning series of displays for a special exhibition on Jewish Histories in Multi-Ethnic Boyle Heights, held in the Leve Centre at UCLA, Los Angeles.
The specialist in large format digital graphics used the UK-manufactured T3 modular framework to create numerous display frames that supported a variety of information graphics and monitors.
Most of the graphics had been produced on Dibond and fabric, which were then mounted onto the framework – using Velcro for the Dibond and silicon edging fitted into T3 Silverlite inserts for the fabric.
Perspex cases were also created to house artefacts including old Yiddish typewriters and yearbooks, along with new technological mediums like digital maps and videos. Digital monitors including screens and iPads were screwed directly onto the framework.
Jenna Kush, Museum Consultant for Olson Visual said: “We used the T3 System because it allowed for a quick set up, cleanliness of the design and the flexibility of materials we could cover the framework with. In addition, the hall had no freight elevator and the exhibition space was on the third floor, so easy modular breakdown was key for transportation.”
The frameworks were created using T3 Airframe and Fusion tubing, which allowed for the most versatility and ease of build, with all the frameworks being installed within five days.
Jenna added: “The client was very happy with the results. They couldnt believe how we completely transformed a conference room they see every day into an exhibition space, and the T3 system was essential for that. Although it was only open for a short time, hundreds of people toured the exhibition. The Centre has had very positive responses and there is interest from other institutions in Los Angeles to show the exhibition in future.”
The unprecedented level of flexibility and customisation offered by the modular design of Tecna Displays T3 system helped exhibition display company Golden Strength to design a simply stunning array of visuals for the CabiScoop fall fashion show in July at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Centre, Massachusetts.
The show is a highly anticipated yearly event for womens fashion designer and manufacturer Cabi, where they unveiled their latest Autumn/Winter collection of womens fashion.
Golden Strength were asked to create an event display that would give attendees and the public a sneak preview of what was to come in the actual show. This was no easy task considering the amount of fashion lines and accessories that were to be showcased.
Working together with Tecna Display, Golden Strength used a variety of display techniques to create a unique and eye catching visual show to excite and thrill the audience.
Philippe Van Ameyde from Tecna Display said: “The entire display of 14 graphic stands, two floating walls and two encased pedestals was built in the lobby of the convention centre. The design allowed Cabi to use huge stunning visuals on the stands, clothed mannequins in the encased pedestals and to display all manner of products with the floating walls.
“Using a combination of our steel sided fusion tubing and connectors for the framework, the magnetic strips attached to the large graphic panels allowed for the graphics to be mounted securely and without hassle. This was a simple yet effective method and allowed for the wide array of displays to be constructed flawlessly. The beauty of the T3 system is also in the versatility and ease of construction.
“All 18 of the display pieces were transported to the venue in compact travel cases that were fitted into the back of a car or van with no trouble. Each graphic stand and floating wall required no more than three team members with a ladder or scissor lift and took just 45 minutes to construct.”
The more complex encased pedestals took five team members around five hours to set up, but none of the displays required tools or prior knowledge of the T3 system products to complete the build, making it by far the most efficient and dynamic of modular display systems.
Once the event was over, all the components packed quickly and efficiently back into the travel cases and stored for their next job and venue.
Philippe continued: “The overall effect at the show was fantastic, and of course all the different elements can now be used either together or individually, offering a great return on investment and an incredibly flexible stock of displays to choose from.”
