Maximizing the Lifespan of Your Custom Display

May 1, 2023

When it comes to custom displays, every business wants the best that money can buy. Custom displays are a significant investment, meaning they should last for a considerable period. Durable, long-lasting displays provide a solid return on investment, especially when used for events, shows, and in a store, office, or facility. So, how can you maximize the lifespan of your custom display and get the most out of your investment? 

From the digital display experts at Fortec US, here are some tips on how to ensure your display lasts as long as possible.

1. Proper Storage and Handling

Proper handling and storage are one of the most critical factors in making your custom display last long. Your display should be stored in a cool, dry place safe from sunlight, heat, and moisture. A climate-controlled facility is ideal for storing custom displays. If you don’t have a facility, choose a storeroom or area with minimal humidity, moderate temperature, and lower light levels. Proper handling of a custom display should be guided by the instructions that an expert provides. Follow the guidelines carefully, and avoid bending or forcing any display parts during assembly.

2. Regular Maintenance

Like any other equipment, your custom display requires regular maintenance to perform effectively. Inspect your display regularly; a visual check-up should be done to look for wear and tear, bent frame parts, or missing components. Any small issues found should be addressed promptly to avoid them becoming bigger and more expensive. As well as visually examining it, a professional custom display expert should regularly maintain your display, inspecting, repairing, and cleaning the display to keep it in its best condition.

3. Use Quality Materials

The materials used to construct custom displays significantly impact their lifespan. The materials used should be of high quality and of an appropriate grade to ensure longevity. The materials used for individual components should be fit for purpose and be compatible when assembled. The finishing should also be done correctly, with high-quality adhesives, paints, and finishes. Poor-quality materials or assembly techniques can reduce the lifespan of your custom display and cause further problems down the line.

4. Environmental Factors

Environmental factors can also cause significant damage to your custom display. Sunlight, humidity, moisture, and temperature extremes can all reduce the lifespan of your display. Prolonged exposure to sunlight can cause colors to fade, while high humidity can cause damage to the display’s electrical components. Keeping your custom display in a safe, controlled environment is essential. At the same time, during events, choosing the right location and setting up your display in a sheltered area can help avoid exposure to UV rays or damp conditions.
