Wooden stand / Green stand
A quick Google search for this keyword also shows that the approach of using wood-based materials in exhibition stand construction is not innovative from the outset. Although a large number of individual, one-off solutions bear witness to the versatility of the material and the creativity of planners and stand builders, aluminium components continue to predominate in the supporting structures of the stands, in posts and beams for walls and ceilings. There is still a lack of standardised wood-based systems. The centralised market is dominated by industrially produced and professionally marketed aluminium systems.
Some dominant market leaders have established themselves, who constantly optimise the price/performance ratio of the aluminium systems through constant further development of the systems and mass production. Individual, wood-based solutions, on the other hand, are still pilot production runs with small quantities and often unrationalized production processes and naturally have difficulty competing with aluminum systems on the cost level. In addition, the highly developed aluminium systems can be used to form rigid frame corners that allow the creation of slim support and carrier systems that can also easily absorb horizontal loads.
Data on the eco-assessment of wood and wood-based materials is very patchy. Compared with the allocation methods used by the wood suppliers (how is the energy gain from burning wood evaluated etc.?), the aluminium system suppliers have consistently followed the methodology of eco-assessment of the production and processing of aluminium and supported it with carefully documented data. Nevertheless, this process is very energy-intensive and emits massive amounts of CO2.
It is therefore clear that even if existing solutions made of wood are available, the competition against aluminium has been asymmetrical up to now due to the lack of modular wood systems.
Exhibition stand wood
Instead of one-way solutions, the EECS.green wood design expo systems are based on a unique, patented plug-in system. The EECS wood systems are based on oak uprights and frames with a 95x95mm cross-section and a length and height of up to 6m. Our plug-in system enables us to build modular wood systems that can be used over and over again and are therefore 100% sustainable, reusable and modular.
In the meantime, our unique Green Stands are already enjoying great popularity throughout Europe. Because many companies have recognised the seriousness of the situation and gratefully accept the opportunity to apply sustainable solutions in the area of trade fairs and events.
Of course, in addition to the aspect of sustainability, aesthetics cannot be ignored. Due to the processed oak, the wooden stand has a fundamentally different appearance from the "cold" aluminium. Since wood - especially oak - is often used in private homes, this association also creates a homely feeling of well-being at the trade fair.
In trade fair construction, an exhibition stand made of wood benefits from precisely these properties and invites interested parties to visit the stand as well as to linger.
