Retail fabrication specialists Wrights Plastics developed a new retail display solution for one of the UK’s best-loved retail brands, Marks and Spencer, using Alupanel Aluminium Composite.
M&S use divider fins to cover the ends of retail display gondolas and sought advice from Wrights Plastics to help reduce the weight of their displays that were traditionally constructed from MDF.
Alupanel’s combination of rigidity and impact resistance were a perfect hard wearing alternative to the old displays plus the panels can be fabricated into the required shape. The pristine white surface white of Alupanel also created an aesthetically pleasing finish to the displays.
Overall, Wrights were able to reduce the weight of the displays from 45kg to 15kg making them much easier and safer for staff to move around the shop floor. The reduced weight also helped cut the cost and environmental impact of distributing the displays around 800 M&S stores across the UK.
Alupanel is the only Aluminium Composite manufactured in the UK. Consisting of a thin aluminium skin and a polyethylene core, the rigid substrate is manufactured in a range of speciality grades including fabrication grade, digital print grade and sheets ideal for flat applications.
