A: Capacities may vary and are contingent on the specific display configuration. Please consult your sales representative for the weight capacity of your display type. Typically, 35 pounds per square foot is the standard recommended weight for flat display shelves. The recommended weight capacity is measured by a shelf deflection of 1/4″ when weighted.
A: Our display panels are made of recycled HDPE (high-density polyethylene), while the leg poles are made from virgin HDPE and ABS plastic.
A: While a rubber mallet may be helpful, no tools are required to assemble SPC Retail displays.
A: Yes, SPC Retail provides a limited 90-day warranty for all standard parts and displays.
A: No, SPC Retail panels are not engineered to span an open space for pedestrian traffic loads.
A: Grid-top panels have an open grid pattern to allow water, dirt, debris, and airflow to pass through panels. Solid-top panels have a closed surface top and do not have the grid pattern.
A: The grid openings vary from 1/2″ x 2″ to 1″ x 2″ depending on where they are located on the panel as well as panel size and type.
A: No. Most paints will not successfully bond or adhere to the surface area of the displays’ legs or panels.
A: Yes. Some panels can be fastened with leg connectors or butted up to each other. Please consult your sales representative for specifics and ideas for connecting panels together to meet your project needs.
A: SPC panels have a UV inhibitor added to the plastic during production. Our panels are very durable, and most customers report little to no fading, even after years of exposure to sun, wind, rain, and snow.

A: Yes. All SPC panels and legs are manufactured in the USA.
A: Yes. Our display solutions are compact and stack flat when disassembled, which makes them easy to store.
A: Panels resting directly on a flat floor surface are stable; however, walking on panels as part of a display configuration is not recommended, as it will exceed recommended weight capacities. Retail displays are designed and engineered to meet static load capacities for retail display purposes only.

Customization

A: SPC Retail will consider custom orders on a case-by-case basis, based on scope of work and production volume. Custom orders may be subject to special terms/conditions, pre-pay down payment, and production run minimums. Custom order inquiries should be discussed with a sales rep for your retail market type.
A: Yes. SPC offers a wide range of standard leg heights and can size leg heights to fit your specific needs upon request.
A: While black is our standard panel color, a custom color may be available for a sufficiently large quantity. Additional lead time and costs may apply for a custom-color production run.

Ordering + Shipping
