Display Stands

RAL Display has been a UK market leading supplier of exhibition equipment over the last 35 years. We provide a variation of sleek, contemporary displays for a number of different sectors including exhibition, retail, education and business. Choose from a variety of display stands for poster, literature, product and tradeshow events. 

About Our Display Stand Range

Our popular range of display stands include our versatile sign stands, promotional stands, poster stands and menu boards. They are ideal for any busy retail environment helping businesses to promote their products and services. For example, the single or double sided Axis display accepts both portrait and landscape posters in A2 or A1 and you are able to display A4 and A3 supporting literature underneath. This range of promotional stands are also ideal to use as restaurant menu boards. 

Alternatively, view our superb range of contemporary free standing cable display systems popular with the retail and education sectors. The classy, modern finish creates a perfect focal point in receptions and show rooms for boosting product and brand exposure.

The poster pockets and leaflet holders are securely suspended on 1.5mm diameter steel cables creating a stunning double sided product and information display. Choose from a selection of pocket sizes including A0, A1, A2, A3 and A4 and accessorise with A4, A5 and 1/3 A4 leaflet holders. The two way frame channels allow individual frames to be linked together in a straight line and an optional four way profile is available on request for L-shape, squares or other angled display stand formations.

The framework uprights are made from a stylish 50mm diameter satin anodised aluminium and the bases from a tough 330mm diameter powdercoated steel. The pockets are produced from a thick folded 3mm acrylic providing a top-loading point for posters and prints. The clear acrylic pockets accept both a single sheet or two sheets back-to-back for double sided displays. We recommend all prints to be produced on paper or thin card.

Our contemporary mobile display boards on lockable castors are popular with universities and colleges, retail stores and estate agents where posters of various sizes require an attractive and practical stand. It's a perfect addition for venues with changing display needs as the unit can be easily wheeled into different room positions or into storage. 

The double sided clear acrylic poster pockets are attached to the vertical cables by four side grips which are securely tightened using the supplied Allen keys. The A1, A2, A3 and A4 posters are simply inserted from the top of the pocket which is produced from rigid folded 3mm thick acrylic. The stands can also be supplied with A4 leaflet holders for an ultimate mix of graphics and literature dispensing. 

The frame is constructed from a smooth silver satin anodised aluminium and the cables from tough galvanised steel. Each foot contains a pair of robust lockable castors to safely secure the stand in its location. The frame measures 2000mm high by 850mm wide and has a 3-way profile allowing sections to be joined at 90 degrees (recommend standard non-castor feet when joining - please enquire).

The mobile stands can be assembled from flat pack in approximately 20 minutes following the supplied instructions. Please note that the cables will need to be cut to the correct length using pliers / wire cutters.

Help Choosing Display Stands


This is a vital consideration when purchasing your promotional equipment. Will you be regularly transporting the displays between venues and what size vehicles will be available for shipping? Almost all equipment is supplied flat packed in component form with some of the aluminium framed modular and cable display stands having uprights of around 2 metres long. At the other end of spectrum, the A4, A3 and A2 sign holders weigh just several kilos and are a simple poster or directional stand for receptions and corridors. 

Assembly Time

As with any tradeshow exhibition, an ample amount of time must be put aside for setup and assembly. By comparison our sign holders have a setup time of 2 minutes, the popup stands of 5-10 minutes and the free standing cable displays with the additional components 20-30 minutes. If the stands are being used permanently in a foyer or reception then assembly time is unimportant. However, if setup speed is important then please contact RAL Display for advice on the quickest stands.


Consider your most common stand area. Do you have a regular display space or does your booth area change with exhibition venue? Most of our display stands are naturally modular and even those which appear to be stand-alone can be linked with a little imagination. For example the Fuse & Kenex free standing graphic displays with standard 1 metre wide graphics can be designed with custom frame widths to accommodate requested display areas and can be linked in a straight line or positioned at 90 degrees. Alternatively choose an L-shaped or combination of linked curved or straight popups to create eye-catching displays.


Display stands are to be strong and durable as well as attractive and contemporary looking. RAL Display matches eye-catching displays with high quality materials such as steel and aluminium. It's important to have the reassurance of sturdy, stable stands especially in areas of high footfall. Many of the stands have metal uprights and large diameter powder coated steel bases. And if components are lost or broken, we ensure that replacement parts can be identified and supplied quickly.

Environmental Considerations

Our display stands are made from recyclable materials. The aluminium, steel and plastic components in many of our products are widely accepted at refuse and recyling points. Contact RAL Display for more details.
