Retail store displays
Industrial Style Shop Displays
Using fittings in shop displays is not exactly a new concept. You will struggle to walk down a high street without seeing some form of fittings based display, whether it be shelving, clothes rails or structures but what people don’t realise is just how versatile fittings can be.
- Fittings can take a surprisingly heavy load, which makes them perfect for storing bulk stock and equipment.
- They are versatile: In my eyes, fittings are the shop fitter’s giant 'meccanno kit'. They allow the construction of a mind boggling array of retail point of sale displays, whether they be clothing rails, racks or structures. Fittings offer retailers the ultimate versatility, being able to deconstruct a display, redesign it and then start all over again!
- They can help you achieve the perfect look for your shop. Our galvanised fittings provide a perfect industrial look. If something more specific is required, they are also available in a large array of colours. The fittings also come in a lighter weight aluminium option,KeeLite which give a cleaner, shinier finish.
The Endless Versatility of Fittings
The industrial style of these clothing rails looks great alongside the retro feel of the shop. The beauty of using fittings is that the look can be adapted to compliment a range of designs and styles, whether this is rustic, retro, steampunk, glam, industrial or new age. It looks equally at home in a shiny, new or old and rustic environment; the finish can be buffed to gleam or distressed to provide an antique feel.
The rising worldwide popularity of using fittings in clothing rails lies within each store's ability to either stand out or blend into your chosen design scheme. For example, in the picture below, the bridal boutique retail clothing rail subtly fades away from your eyes as they follow each of the bright, rich colours of the dresses.
This ingenious idea from the minds of German DIY magazine Selber Machan shows how you can create space in unexpected ways. This instance shows how you can add two clothing rails and a shelf in an area where it would be difficult to include them in normal circumstances.
Just like retail clothing racks, fitting-based shoe racks are fully configurable. Take a look at the some of the numerous ways this sports store has used fittings based racks as functional displays.
Industrial Shelving/ Display Bins
Retail store owners often group similar items together in an effort to make multiple sales, tempting customers with bulk-buy purchases or simply extensive displays.
The challenge when considering 'bulk' item racking is gauging the weight of the items which generally require large fixed shelving. Fittings too can take heavy items, but the versatility exists to change the display structure regularly and yet just keep reusing the same fittings.
Fittings are not limited to clothing rails or wholesale bins, they can be designed to make shelving displays. These can look very professional, industrial and clean, a perfect look for electronics.
Trade Show or Exhibition Stands
Trade show stands need to be easy to assemble and dismantle, easy to transport, they should look good and be inherently stable safe. Fittings can be part of the solution as the example here shows:
