Vista System International, a fast growing Israel based pioneer and world leader in Modular Curved Frame Technology (MCFT) with US based operations in Sarasota, Florida, recently had its versatile, fast growing MCFT used in the design of the lighted counter system pictured, which was produced by Signs Print of New Caledonia. MCFT is popular for wayfinding systems and is ideally suited for wall frames and brackets, directory signage, table stands, pylons, suspended signs, lit signage, and additional applications as vast as one’s imagination.
This MCFT application was developed for a client that needed counters for a short exhibit. Signs Print wanted to offer a good, tough, lighted counter system and as always, their first idea was to find the solution with Vista products. They immediately imagined what they could do with MCFT. Lighted counter systems produced using MCFT components such as the one pictured, are ideally suited for tradeshow and convention displays plus a wide range of additional applications, which run the gamut from product demonstrations and sampling to information kiosks, special events, outdoor bars, sales counters, and more.
The biggest challenge in creating the lighted counter system was how to fit all these parts together. After attempting to design the lighted counter system using a few different MCFT component variations, Signs Print discovered the best solution, which was placing two long posts through the Vista System VL extrusions from the bottom to the top in order to reinforce the whole counter. They then added electricity, with tubes in the two parts as well a small spot to illuminate the wood counter.
MCFT was developed by sign professionals with the goal of filling a gap between fabricated sign and modular sign systems. It offers the best of both worlds by offering the advantages of a modern modular system with the ability to provide a highly customizable solution that meets the unique requirements of each signage project.
MCFT is modular. Standardized units can be assembled in different ways using both standard and custom accessories and attachments. MCFT is curved. It combines the enhanced functionality of a curved shape with the beauty of Euro design into a collection of profiles that keep inserted materials firmly in place using its strong tension grip. MCFT is a frame system that can be used with many types of sign substrates and inserts, thus allowing for the easy and inexpensive updating of signs. MCFT was developed using state-of-the-art technology. It allows the sign professional to participate in the design and development of new ideas for new products, and becomes an integral part of the development process jointly with Vista System by providing new ideas from the field that mirror the market needs. These demands are supported by the quick fabrication capabilities of custom accessories and attachments that mesh with the system extrusions.
Modular Curved Frame Technology also provides many additional advantages vs. other custom fabricated and modular sign systems. It is easy to install and update by even a novice. This saves time and the costs associated with using onsite signage professionals. Clear, concise directions make the installation process fast and easy. MCFT is ideally suited for a wide range of indoor and outdoor applications that cover the entire signage project. MCFT was designed for use involving many kinds of signage methods. Ultra strong MCFT profiles are available in standard full component lengths and custom lengths.
