Wall Mounted Snap Frames

The wall mounted poster frames have a wide range of applications for many educational or retail environments. They are ideal for displaying adverts and are sometimes referred to as ad-frames.

The standard wall mounted poster holders are available in the standard ‘A’ sizes such as A0, A1, A2, A3 and A4. Bespoke poster frames are also available on request. The units are constructed from a slim 28mm satin anodised aluminium frame with rounded profile. The poster holders have two optional corner finishes: standard 45 degree mitred or chrome. The poster frames are attached directly to the wall through discreetly positioned screw holes from inside the frame section. Once the poster frames are closed the screws are hidden from view.


Secure & Lockable Snap Frames

We offer an alternative range of secure and lockable poster holders. They are available as A0, A1, A2 and A3 sizes. The secure clip-frames open and close using an opening tool. The lockable clip frames have a discreet Allen Key lock situated on the bottom frame section to prevent poster removal. Once tightened, all frame sections are firmly secured. The 32mm wide frame profile is flatter than the standard poster holders to allow for the lock.

Floor Standing Snap Frames/Sign Holders

Freestanding poster holders are available in A3 and A4 sizes in a portrait or landscape format. The standard freestanding poster frames are complete with a 300mm diameter metal base and a 900mm high post. The frame options are the same as the standard poster frames with the option of both mitred and chrome corner finishes. We also offer deluxe A3 poster holders. They have both an adjustable telescopic pole with a range between 1 and 1.56m and a hinged poster frame. The deluxe poster holders have the standard grip frame mechanism and protective plastic cover. The units are supported by a padded heavy marble base with powder-coated steel cover. The poster frames are available as A3 portrait only. They may be used as a lectern unit if required.

'A' Poster Sizes: Important Information

Refer to the table below for the standard poster sizes. When selecting a clip frame, be aware that approximately 10mm of the poster edge may be hidden behind the closed poster frame. Refer to individual frame types for advice.
