Bezel Free SEG

Traditional SEG (Silicone Edge Graphic), installs onto the front of a frame or extrusion, leaving an unsightly border around the edge that is visible to an audience. For Stretch Shapes, this was not an option that we felt comfortable presenting to the A/V industry. Instead, we worked with our fabricators and patterning departments to come up with a solution that would meet our ambitious standards of excellence.

Stretch Shapes’ SEG frames incorporate a custom SEG extrusion that is bolted to the back of aluminum square tube frame. This allows the stretch fabric to wrap around the frame and insert into the SEG extrusion without showing any frame to the audience, creating a clean edge with no bezel or border. We use an exclusive blackout fabric that eliminates all frame shadowing and light passing so you can count on a distraction-free surface.

These custom frames work extremely well for Borderless Projection Screens and custom printed backdrops. The stretch fabric used in conjunction with these frames can be folded up and installs to be wrinkle free every time. Every SEG frame is custom built to your specs and can be broken down into small segments, making transportation and setup a breeze. Stretch Shapes can also design your frame to be ground or aerial supported as well as modular, meaning you can combine multiple frames together.

360 Pillow Case

If you’re looking to create 2D shapes or a custom wall that you can use as a stage decoration, our round tube fabrication system might be just what you need. The round edges on the frame provide a perfect surface for projection mapping because they leave little to no bleed off.

This is a great solution if you’re looking to create a unique branding solution at a corporate event or festival when combined with our dye sublimation printing option. The frame can be designed to nearly any shape imaginable and the print can then match the shape. Other ideas for our round tube frames include stage lighting surfaces, stage backdrops and video mapping surfaces. One of the biggest advantages to this system is that it looks the same on both sides so you don’t have to hide one side from the audience.

The stretch fabric used with our round tube frames is designed to slip over like a pillowcase and secures in place with a sewn in zipper along the bottom support rail. This is the easiest of the three systems when it comes to install and allows you to still do creative curves and bends. Round tube frames can also be ground or aerial supported depending on your needs.

Laser Frames

Have an abstract idea or concept? Our CNC cut and formed aluminum plates open a whole new realm of the imagination. Aluminum plates are laser cut and formed to achieve very abstract angles that most tube frames cannot achieve. This allows you to create 3D shapes and columns out of lightweight aluminum that you can setup and transport very easily.

These frames are a thing of beauty by themselves, but when wrapped in fabrics that stretch, become a magnificent surface for projection mapping and branding opportunities. Stretch Shapes can also fabricate these frames to allow you to create multiple stage sets out of one template. Be sure to ask your Stretch Shapes’ representative about the modular options available with this frame option.
