SEG is an acronym for “Silicone Edge Graphics”. In short, this is a Fabric Graphic that is held into a frame by a silicone gasket. The graphic is mounted by inserting the gasket strip into a groove in the edge of the frame. The result is a large format graphic that is smooth and aesthetically attractive, while also being very easy to install without tools or special installation skills. Frames can range from elegant fabric wall hangings to freestanding walls and fully modular tradeshow booths.
Do you already have a frame?
Depending on your needs Olympus can work with either frames you already own or help you produce new frames. Some of the frame manufacturers we partner with include BeMatrix, Aluvision and others.
Do you have special lighting concerns or needs?
Depending on your project you might need to either block out light completely or let lighting shine through for vibrant backlit images.
SEG gaskets are a strip of material that is sewn directly to a fabric graphic. This gasket is pushed into a channel on the SEG frame. This effectively wedges the fabric graphic into the frame, holding it under tension for a snug fit and smooth appearance. Gaskets come in many size and materials. Which one we choose depends on the frame extrusion being used. We offer a range of gaskets, so no worries! Just let us know which frame system you are using, and we can handle the rest!
SEG frames are typically made from aluminum that is “extruded” in long rods or “sticks”, and then cut to shape to form a frame. The extrusion typically has gasket channels on one or multiple sides depending on how the frame is being designed. Due to the profile design of extrusions, they are extremely strong and lightweight compared to frames made from tubing.
