Expand M2 33
The Expand M2 is a premium retractable banner stand from one of the leaders in quality displays. It has an elegant design that comes in silver or black with chrome end caps, and has the distinction of being the only roll up banner stand that doesn't use springs. Instead, the Modular Tension System replaces the spring tension system that is used by virtually every other banner stand and instead uses a system inspired by the systems that raise sails on racing yachts. The banner is attached to a simple, light weight media roll that inserts into the base where gears are used to create tension as the banner is raised, and that tension is used to wind up the banner as it's lowered. Once the banner is fully retracted, there is no tension on the banner so the media roll can be removed and replaced without any special steps and there is never a need to re-tension the roller. Winding the banner tightly around the media roll is all that's required if the stand ever loses tension, making it one of the simplest and most user friendly banner stands available.
The M2 features a telescopic support pole with lever locks for easy operation, and a lifetime warranty. The adjustable height pole can display a banner with a visible size from 63" to 88.625" tall and works with lever locks for fast and easy adjustments of the pole height. These are much easier to use than the twist-to-lock style of telescopic poles that are common on lower end stands, and even some high end models. They are also more reliable over time, which is why high-end models tend to use this style of pole.
The M2 uses a snap style top rail that hinges open and clamps on to the banner securely. This style is the most versatile since it will hold any material and isn't dependent on adhesives. The banner attaches directly to the media roll with double sided adhesive.
The banner options shown with this stand are at the most popular height of 88.625". Other banner sizes and types can be ordered by browsing the Related Products tab, or from the Banners section under Printing for Indoor Use in the main menu.
The Expand M2 33 retractable banner stand displays a graphic with a visual area of 33.4375" wide x 63" to 88.625" high.
Comes complete with a padded carry bag with shoulder strap.
Looking for a higher-end model?
There aren't any higher end models.
Looking for a less expensive model?
A less expensive model with similar features would be the Expolinc Roll Up Classic 33. That model also has adjustable height, from 63" to 87", or can be used with a range of fixed height support poles up to 96" tall.
A hard shipping case is a great accessory for any retractable banner stand that gets shipped even a few times a year. Even though this is a heavy duty banner stand, it's possible for any display to get damaged in transit and a hard shipping case helps reduce the risk that your stands are not working at a critical time. The Adjustable Banner Stand Case is the recommended model for the M2 33, and it will hold the stand inside its individual travel bag for extra protection with room for lights or other accessories. You can find this case by scrolling through the items in the Related Products tab or if you need a case for more than one stand, there are many more options in the Shipping Cases section of the main menu.
A spotlight is a great accessory for banner stands when used at trade shows or other events. Because these venues tend to have poor lighting, display with lights really stand out, so it's a simple way to increase the impact of your displays. For this banner stand, the Expand Spotlight is the recommended model. It can also be found in the Related Products tab or in the Display Lighting section of the main menu.
