BannerUp Plus 48
NOTE: Sadly, Mark Bric, the manufacturer of this display, has announced they are closing their doors effective June 30, 2020. All of their products are on sale while the stock lasts, but the lifetime warranty is not applicable since they will be out of business. These are still some of the best made stands in the industry and they're an excellent value at these prices.
The BannerUp Plus retractable banner stand is the signature banner display from Swedish display manufacturer Mark Bric. It's one of the most solidly built, and expensive, retractable banner stands we offer, and it comes with an equally solid reputation for quality and long term durability that is backed by a full 10 year warranty. Mark Bric has statistics that show that only 1 in 1000 stands has needed repair, which is an outstanding reliability record. What sets this banner stand apart from the others on the market, aside from the price, is the ability to use the stand at a range of sizes from 29" up to nearly 10 feet on any of the five models. Each model is made of heavy .070" aluminum for extra durability and to provide extra protection for the roller mechanism, which is also extremely rugged with a heavy duty steel spring. The travel bag is also different from most stands in that in includes foam padded inserts for extra shock protection.
In addition, the BannerUp Plus has an interesting design that is very compact while remaining stable in most situations without the need for swing out feet, but each model has four so they can be used when necessary. At the 116" height, it's called the Big Plus and it comes with larger swing out feet for extra stability. It remains very low profile with only 1.5" of the base being visible from the front when set up, and most of the top rail is covered by the banner which keeps the focus on your graphics and not the stand. The BannerUp Plus also includes nylon connectors to join the top rails of multiple stands together when forming a banner wall, and upgraded metal connectors are available as accessories in both straight and angled versions. These are available in the Related Products tab.
Also called roll up banner stands or pull up banner stands, this style of banner display features a spring loaded roller that holds the banner under tension, and rolls it safely into the base for storage between uses. The BannerUp Plus features panel strip mounting to the roller with a heavy duty aluminum mounting strip with 3M VHB adhesive. The top rail also uses this adhesive to stick the banner to the face of the rail. To provide additional security, nylon push pins can be inserted through the banner into holes in the top rail. Both black and white push pins are included so you can choose the ones that will be the least noticeable. This adhesive top rail is the only thing we don't like about the BannerUp Plus, but it does work and has proven to be reliable. The downside is that a QuickChange kit, which includes a new top rail and bottom mounting panel strip, is required for each new banner. The advantage is that banner changes become extremely easy and we've rated this stand as having the simplest banner changes for that reason.
Banner options are shown for each of the five fixed height sizes, but by using only one or two sections of the pole, smaller sizes are also possible. If you would like to order a banner size not shown, you can order the stand without a banner and order a different size banner separately by browsing through the options in the Banners section under Printing for Indoor Use in the main menu. Contact us if you need assistance ordering the banner you need.
Because this stand is not stocked in our Utah warehouse, rush options are limited. If you have a tight deadline and don't want to choose a different model, contact us for other rush options on this banner stand.
The BannerUp Plus 48 displays a banner with a visible size of 47.25" x 81", 88.5", 96", 107" or 116" with the different height pole options.
Looking for a higher-end model?
There is no higher end model at this size.
Looking for a less expensive model?
There are many less expensive stands, but a good choice in a less expensive model would be the Space Infinity 48, which displays a 47.25" x 35-84.6" banner with the adjustable pole, or a 94.5" tall banner with the optional taller pole. It has a removable roller with both panel strip and snap rail mounting to the roller, a snap style top rail and a deluxe travel bag.
The Smartpak IQ 12x50 case can be used, but some of the padding would have be removed from the travel bag for it to fit. The recommended model for this stand would be the Smarpak IQ 12x62. It has room for 2 stands along with lights and other accessories. You can find the case by scrolling through the items in the Related Products tab.
The BannerUp Halo Spotlight and BannerUp LED Spotlight are the recommended models for this stand. They can also be found in the Related Products tab.
