In the retail sector, effectively highlighting merchandise is one of the keys to success. Store fixtures and displays play a vital role in achieving this goal. By exhibiting advertising the products, they draw the attention of potential customers and entice them to purchase the showcased items. Custom fixtures and displays offer an added benefit of giving a store a unique look and feel that can reinforce its brand aesthetic and distinguish it from the competition.
At Aero Industries, we specialize in custom aluminum fabrication work. One of our core offerings is store fixtures. We can produce standard or custom solutions that tie in with the retail space and fully align with the intended design and promotional goals.
Benefits of Custom Fixtures & Displays for Your Store
There are many benefits to using custom fixtures and displays to help specific products stand out and differentiate your store from every other that sells the same products, these include:
- Greater customizability. Customized fixture and display solutions are designed and constructed to suit the store’s exact functional and aesthetic needs. They ensure the space works well and is attractive to both employees and customers. Typical fixtures and displays include wall mounted graphics, free standing displays, cabinets, counters, racks, and shelves. These products, among others, can be made in a variety of designs and dimensions and from various materials. For example, they can integrate brand names, logos, graphics and colors, feature self-help or locking options and can be made from metal, wood, or plastic.
- Better customer experience. Custom fixtures and displays help make a cohesive and comfortable shopping atmosphere that aligns with the store goals and brand values and meets customer expectations regarding the store/brand. Additionally, they can make it easier for customers to locate items within the store.
- Easier compliance with legal requirements (e.g., ADA). Custom fixtures and displays make it easier to comply with any legal requirements for retail stores, such as the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), which requires businesses to be accessible to customers with disabilities.
Why Use Aluminum for Your Fixtures and Displays?
While fixtures and displays can be manufactured from a wide range of materials, aluminum offers a number of advantages over the others. For example:
- It is lightweight. Aluminum is approximately one-third the weight of brass, copper, iron, and steel, which makes it easier to handle, cheaper to ship, and better for use in applications where weight is a concern.
- It is strong. Aluminum offers a high strength-to-weight ratio, making it ideal for applications where high strength and low weight are critical. Additionally, it can be made as strong as needed for many applications.
- It is flexible. The flexibility of aluminum, combined with its strength, enables it to withstand loads and impacts. As a result, it is a highly resilient material.
- It is corrosion resistant. Aluminum has a natural oxide layer that protects it from corrosion. This protection can be further enhanced with various finishing processes, such as anodizing.
- It is easy to work. Aluminum can be readily made into many shapes using a wide range of manufacturing methods, which makes it highly suitable for the fabrication of different types of custom fixtures and framed displays.
- It is customizable. In addition to accommodating different shapes, aluminum can be anodized, painted, plated, polished, and otherwise finished, making it easy to tailor fixtures and displays to a store’s requirements.
- It is recyclable. Aluminum can be used over and over with no property degradation, meaning it can be utilized to create custom fixtures and displays with minimal waste.
