Set Panels

£20.00 - £104.00 per day

Our Set Panels are constructed from PSE redwood timber and the finished frame is wrapped with 220gsm black NDFR cotton canvas. Both 2×1 and 2×2 grades are used and all joints are glued and double screwed. Frames are built to strict plans with a +/- 0.5mm tolerance rule. Before assembly all the parts are stained black.

Our set panels are graded and serviced every time they come back to the warehouse. Any panels that do not make A-grade will then be assessed to see if they meet B-grade standards. Too many small defects or a range of large defects will automatically send the panel into the quarantine area for further assessment or recovering.

We carry a wide range of Set Panels sizes for modular style construction – the full range of sizes is shown in the Dimensions tab below.

We are confident in producing very large one-piece covers on site. We hold good stocks of large format canvas’ on the shelf and can supply printed material of virtually any size. Our in-house work shop is equipped with a range of modern machinery and a 3m x 2m CNC router. We can manufacture a breadth of custom items, stage pieces, logos and more.
