Our computerised cutting facility allows for accurate cutting of Event Foamex, enabling panels to butt up with perfectly straight edges or for added creativity, can be cut to shapes including ovals and circles.

Event Foamex panels can be used in event environments to highlight product information. It can be cut to shape and is rigid enough to create free standing objects.

Temporary directional signage is a popular choice for Event Foamex as its weather resistant properties are ideal for the British climate!

Temporary Hoardings in Leicester

Digitally printed Event Foamex is an ideal way to produce temporary hoardings to clad vacant store fronts, as seen in this recent Christmas display in Leicester (image 3 above). Printed in sections the hoardings were fitted by Kingfisher’s team of experts ensuring a first rate job. The finished display transforms the High Street and is a powerful way of communicating with the public.

Printed Event Foamex wall display project for Manchester Phoenix VIP lounge

This project (image 4 above) required 4 wall surfaces to be clad with branded 5mm thick Foamex panels. An 8ft high timber framework was constructed onto which the printed panels could be fixed. The artwork took into consideration corner joins and wall edges to produce a visually flowing design. The design was split into 12 sections at artwork stage, then printed with full colour images on a large format UV printing press. Each panel is UV cured during the print process making them instantly dry. The printed panel is then placed onto a computerised cutting table and accurately trimmed to all 4 edges making them ready to be placed together.

The preferred fitting method for this project was to pin the Event Foamex to the framework. Each panel was slightly raised to allow for imperfections in the floor, with a skirting board fixed over the top. The printed panels were butted together to give a seamless finish and flowing design. A Stanley knife was used on site to trim the excess print from the extreme right hand panel, it is a rigid material but soft enough to cut easily. The end result is an impressive visual wall display 8 feet high by a total width of 47 feet.
