Q: Are Sing museum display panels nailable?
A: Sing museum display panels are nailable if the skin is over 1/4 inch plywood or custom nailing block or strips are pre-planted prior to manufacture. Our standard surface material is plywood. It may be important, if you are specifying a special exterior skin or other specifications, to note in advance to the manufacture of your panels that you intend to nail, as that may require additional material to accommodate nailing.
Q: What does a standard Museum Wall Panel look like?
A: Sing Museum Wall panels are created to any specs supplied by the museum’s architectural designer. The base Museum Wall Panel is 4 ft. x 8 ft. x 3 in. with 3/8 inch MDF surfaces, though 1/4 inch Marine Grade plywood is also in demand as a base material. Though these are fairly standard, your panels can be completely customized to your specs.
Q: Do your Museum Wall Panels come with Cam Locks?
A: Sing Museum Wall panels can have cam locks installed at an additional charge. In most cases, museums order the panels without alterations as the staff woodcrafts people install cam lock on-site. In some cases it is requested that panels are pre-drilled for cam locks or have cam locks installed at an additional charge.
Q: How thick can your Museum Wall Panels be?
A: Sing Museum Wall panels can be any thickness that you are considering for your museum exhibit design. It is common for our museum clients to order extra thick panels (normally 6 inches thick, but could be thicker), so that they can be assembled singlehandedly (yes, they are that light weight) and without having to secure them (standing solitarily) very stable.
Q: Can the appearance of your museum display panels be changed on-site?
