Blaze Laserlights Project

Display Developments were approached by Blaze, the urban cycling brand leaders, to manufacture unique display cases to showcase their new laserlights in retail stores. The display case needed an integral mirror to reflect light from the laserlights onto the ceiling.

Display Developments are skilled in making acrylic display cases but the projection of the laserlight beam presented a challenge. A key requirement was the ability to reflect the laser light at a specific angle ensuring the light would be visible from anywhere in the store. Due to the limitation of the overall dimensions of the case, it had to be designed to ensure the laserlight was positioned perfectly straight in the middle of the display case.

Several prototypes were completed to test the different mirror angles but the final design totally fulfilled the brief and Blaze were delighted with the finished product.

Why Menu Display Cases Still Have Their Place

If you frequently visit restaurants you will no doubt have noticed that many of the fast food chains are now displaying menu options on digital tablets such as ipads. As the majority of their customers are younger and therefore more comfortable browsing and even placing orders via a tablet display this does seems like a sensible menu display choice and could even help attract more customers to that cheaper end of the market.

However, rest assured that most restaurant customers still prefer to view a printed menu and therefore they will have the full menu on view. They can scan the whole menu display without having to scroll or touch a screen that others have touched with greasy or dirty fingers and also of course left their germs on the screen to be transferred onto the next viewer’s fingers.

Mirror Polished Menu Case

As the title of this article says, Display Developments believe menu display cases and stands still have their place and that place is most definitely front of house and in the right position to ensure your menu has maximum exposure. Whether you are looking for an indoor or even an outdoor menu display stand, Display Developments have the ideal solution with a diverse range of menu cases and stands to choose from. From the traditional London Menu Stand to the much more functional & minimalist Vector Menu Stand, they can offer you the perfect menu stand to match your décor or location.

Vacuum Forming By Display Developments

Vacuum Forming or Thermoforming, as the process is also known, is one of the original methods of manipulating plastic material. Vacuum formed products surround us all the time and are a huge part of our everyday life.

The process involves taking a sheet of plastic and heating it until soft and malleable and then draping it over a preformed mould. A vacuum is then applied which thereby sucks the sheet into or around the mould and the finished product is then removed from the mould. The most advanced form of vacuum forming uses very sophisticated pneumatic, hydraulic and heat controls which enables a much higher production speed and also much more detailed vacuum formed products.

The most commonly used materials used in vacuum forming are as follows;

Butadiene Styrene ABS
Polyester Copolymer PETG
Polystyrene PS
Polycarbonate PC
Polypropylene PP
Polyethylene (sheet and foamed sheet) PE
Polyvinyl Chloride PVC
Acrylic PMMA

Typical Vacuum Formed Products
• Shower Trays
• Yoghurt Pots
• Boat Hulls
• Machinery Guards
• Vehicle Door Liners
• Refrigerator Liners
• Sandwich Boxes
• Many vehicle parts
• Shop signs

DD016Display Developments in Erith, Kent are one of the leading UK Vacuum Formers and can offer 30+ years of experience in the industry.

Display Developments Launch Vapour Point Of Sale Display Stands

Despite health experts being undecided regarding the benefits or otherwise of E-cigarettes, the market continues to grow and the NHS is preparing to prescribe e-cigarettes for smokers struggling to quit.

Opinions vary wildly between those experts that say E-cigarettes represent the best option for hardened smokers who wish to quit whilst at the other extreme there is a view that they might be equally as bad for you long term as smoking conventional cigarettes.

Public Health England in a recent study concluded that e-cigarettes could in fact be 95% more healthy than smoking. However, a further study just released has concluded that the effect of e-cigarette vaping on human body cells is actually just as harmful as smoking.

With the UK government likely to announce a ban on E-cigarette advertising in May it means retailers will need to ensure more effective Point of Sale displays to maintain sales levels.
