Best-Ex Frames & Exhibit Bases

This selection of exhibit bases were formally known as the NPS-Style. Recently, the National Park Service revised their design standards, and details can be found in the VIS & Wayside Hardware Specification Manual Version February 2010. We have the capability to produce exhibits to these standards. Please contact us for a custom quote for these bases in aluminum, weathering steel, and galvanized steel.

Cantilever Exhibit Base:

The Cantilever Exhibit Base is the preferred low profile exhibit base. Constructed of aluminum extrusion, the design is simple and unobtrusive. The frame is displayed between the two posts. This base is used with frames which are 18” to 24” high. Sign widths are 24”, 36” and 42”. Signs are easily installed by removing the top rail of the frame, inserting the sign, and replacing the top rail. Mounting height from ground level to the bottom edge of the frame is 28” to 32”.

Traditional Exhibit Base:

This is the original low profile exhibit base. Constructed of aluminum extrusion, the legs are wider than the cantilever, and extend from the center line of the frame. The frame is displayed between the two posts. This base is used with frames which are 18” to 24” high. Sign widths are 24”, 36” and 42”. Signs are easily installed by removing the top rail of the frame, inserting the sign, and replacing the top rail. Mounting height from ground level to the bottom edge of the frame is 28” to 32”.

Upright Exhibit Base:

The Upright Frame can be mounted in several ways. They can be mounted as a single frame with a post on each side, a line of frames, or a cluster of frames. The frames attach to a customer supplied wood posts with lag screws (provided). With an additional bracket, you can have a cluster of 3, 5 or more frames. Special configurations may require additional brackets, so talk to us about your design. You can even use these frames back-to-back for a 2-sided exhibit (requires 6” posts). Signs are easily installed by removing the top rail of the frame, inserting the sign, and replacing the top rail.
