More Than a Banner Day for Northwestern University

Northwestern Zip Frame1

Vision Installs a Kwik Zip Frame System on the NU Campus

Vision client Northwestern University was seeking a solution for hanging banners across an arched walkway. Their current application was stretching a banner across the arch, then using bungee cords to fasten the banner to the iron structure. Vision’s solution was to provide a new metal header that spanned the width of the arch. On the structure, Vision attached the Kwik Zip framing system, a channel system where rubber bead is welded to the edges of the banner then slid into the frame’s channel. The banner is stretched taut using the Kwik Zip tightening tool (see above). Lastly, four corner plates were attached to secure the channel ends. The application allows NU to change the message as frequently as they choose.

Application details for the Northwestern Kwik Zip Framing System:

  • The steel structure was produced by Landmark Signs and measured 250”w x 36”h.
  • During installation, Vision installers taught NU facility personnel how to remove and re-install new banners.
  • The stretching tool is required if the client chooses to make the banner changes themselves.
  • This steel structure has Kwik Zip frames on both sides, allowing for double-sided messaging.
