I bought this banner stand two years ago and recently the center support pole was lost in transport. Is it possible to buy a replacement part?
The Advance double sided retractable banner stand is a two sided version of the Imagine. The Advance features changeable cassettes that allow graphics to be changed in seconds by simply opening the lid and dropping in the new cassette. This makes it possible to maintain a library of banners to be used for different promotions or events. When it's time to change graphics, the banner in the cassette can be replaced in the same way you would change the banner in a regular stand, like the Barracuda, or replacement graphics can be ordered with new cassettes to make banner changes even easier. The Advance features snap on translucent black plastic end caps for a finished look, and a twist-to-lock style telescopic pole that adjusts from 30" to 84" and stores in bottom of the base for shipping. The Advance has premium options like tension adjustment knobs on the cassettes that can be used to add tension or completely re-tension a roller, should the need arise. There are also some interesting premium accessories available for the Advance, such as a literature pocket and table top that can be purchased individually or as a kit with both options. Both attach to the base with aluminum extrusions for a very secure and professional appearance, and place the table top or literature pocket to either side of the banner so as not to obscure the view of the graphic. If you have the need for this type of accessory to extend the function of a banner stand display to show products and provide literature, then one of the Orbus premium banner stands, such as the Advance is the obvious choice, since they are the only models that have this feature. These accessory kits can be found in the Related Products tab.
Also called roll up banner stands or pull up banner stands, this style of banner display features spring loaded rollers that hold the banners under tension, and roll them safely into the base for storage between uses. The Advance has top rails with two options for mounting the graphic; a metal panel strip with set screws for the greatest security, or a plastic adhesive panel strip that simply slides into a channel in the top rail. We prefer the metal panel strip with set screws because it doesn't rely on adhesive like the plastic panel strip, and in our experience, adhesives eventually fail, and never at a good time. The bottom of the banners attach with adhesive to the plastic leaders. Since there is no access to the rollers on the Advance, the use of the plastic leaders are necessary so the banners can be attached to something outside of the sealed cassettes.
The Advance comes complete with a padded travel bag with carry strap.
The Advance displays two banners, each with a visible size of 31.5" wide x 30" to 83.75" tall.
Looking for a higher-end model?
There isn't an upgrade from the Advance in a double sided stand at the same 31.5" width, so it would be necessary to go with a 33.4" wide model in order to upgrade. The Expolinc Roll Up Professional Double would be an excellent choice for an upgraded model. It has removable rollers with panel strip mounting and a fixed height of 84.625".
Looking for a less expensive model?
The Space Dual 33 is a 33.4" wide model that is less expensive, but could also be considered an upgrade. With many of the same features as the Expolinc Roll Up Professional Double, the Space Dual also has removable rollers with panel strip mounting, but also adds a snap rail on the roller that allows mounting without the need for any special treatments at all. The Space Dual 33 also has a fixed height pole at 84.6 and comes with a deluxe carry bag.
The Adjustable Banner Stand Case is our recommended option when a shipping case is needed. There is room in the case for a single Advance along with lights and other accessories. You can find the case by scrolling through the items in the Related Products tab.
The Lumina 2 Spotlight, Space Spotlight, or Space LED Spotlight are the recommended lights for use with the Advance. These can also be found in the Related Products tab.
