We are so proud and honored to announce that Display Reveal, our interior wall reveal which was introduced to market mid-2014, has earned highest strata award in 2015’s Awards for Design Excellence (ADEX) with a Platinum award. This was AS Hanging Display Systems’ first entry into the ADEX competition.
ADEX is the largest and most prestigious award competition for excellence in product design of furnishings and building materials marketed to the design trade, with over 600 companies participating this year. ADEX Awards has recognized products demonstrating superior innovation, function and aesthetics for over 20 years.
Reveals are used to create the illusion of a floating wall surface, and more frequently designed into tall spaces to scale a wall to human proportions, or in other instances these are used to introduce a design element. This is particularly a common design tactic in public interior spaces such as airports, performing arts structures, convention centers, corporate lobbies, as well as many other building types.
However, unlike other reveals, the Display Reveal molding has been designed as part of a system of components. The reveal will support 110 lbs. per linear foot and is exclusively compatible with both P-End Cables and P-End Rods from AS Hanging Display Systems. Interpreted: users will be able to suspend wall objects, art, signage and transient displays from aluminum or stainless steel rods, or stainless and nylon cables. Virtually every cable and rod fitting in the company’s product line-up is compatible with one or more of these cables or rods to create a complete wall reveal system.
This is not like a “track” for hanging systems, which on their own offer the many benefits of avoiding wall damage and reduced facility maintenance costs. This product is first and foremost a reveal like those that are frequently specified by the A&D community. However, this reveal is so much more. It can suspend wall objects. That attribute makes this product very different in comparison to other reveal moldings.
It is important to note that the Display Reveal-compatible cables and rods transfer the load into the reveal chamber and not to the lip of the reveal itself. That is why this hanging display reveal can be rated for such weight capacity, unlike any other currently available. It is a system where a reveal can serve as a reveal but serve equally well as a fully capable hanging system track. Yet, when not in use as a track, it disappears into the background of good interior design. What could be a better example of sustainable design than an architectural design element, also serving a valid functional purpose? With its dual role, it is such a natural fit in commercial or public spaces.
With nearly 3,000 judges serving on the ADEX global advisory board, consisting of internationally renowned architects and interior designers who actively specify the product categories they evaluate, it is a high honor to receive this prestigious award. A rigorous classification process ensures that nominated products reach the right audience and compete fairly. One of the first awards to acknowledge sustainability a decade ago, ADEX reports that 90% of this year’s award entrants spotlight products or processes that benefit the environment. We are proud to be in such company.
