Vision offer a wide selection of clapper door options, designed to suit every possible variation of display required by our customers. We have included detailed information in order to make it easy for you to understand exactly what the options are and how they work, so that you can decide which version you wish to buy.
The different types of clapper door are:
Removable full panel trimmed
Removable split panel trimmed
Removable full panel untrimmed
Removable split panel untrimmed
Designed to be a cost effective method of producing display panels, the fixed trim clapper door enables Vision to offer clapper displays at very low prices.
Ideal for distributors and showroom owners alike, this method of display has been in use for many years.
The fixed trim clapper is manufactured with our maple effect trim fitted directly to a central mdf board. The clapper panel is then fitted with brackets to allow it to be lifted on and off the clapper display frame with ease.
The Vision fixed trim gives you a 12.5mm recess both sides of the panel. You simply fix your display tiles to the central panel and grout into the edge trim to finish off. When you need to change the display tiles, just chip off the old tiles and re-tile the panel again. With care, these panels can be re-used many times and new replacements are available from stock if required.
Also available are individual strips of tile trim which can be used to divide the tile displays in order to show two or more colour variations etc. These are supplied cut to length by Vision and are designed to be fixed into position as you merchandise your tiles, normally with hot-melt glue. They can be removed and repositioned as required.
Designed originally for tile distributors who have to ship ready-tiled panels around in order to avoid having to chop off display tiles in their customers’ showrooms, the trimmed tile display panels are separate boards which slide in and out of a pre-fabricated clapper `door’. Manufactured from mdf with either our beech or maple effect tile trim fitted directly to the face of one side of the board. Just tile into the recess provided (15mm deep) and slide the clapper panel into position with one full panel either side of the main clapper door. Vision clapper doors have a lift-off front section designed to hide the front edges of the boards and complete the clapper door construction. These tile display panels can be re-used many times and new replacements are available from stock if required.
The untrimmed tile display panels work in the same way as the Vision removable display panels, except that the display panels are plain mdf and do not have any grouting trims fitted. With this method, you tile to the edge of the mdf panel and then slide the panel into the channels of the main clapper door, with both the mdf panel and the tiles being held inside the metal section. The folded metal edges of the door prevent the cut-edges of the tiles from being seen by the customer.

Removable split panel untrimmed version:
The split panel version works in exactly the same way as the trimmed panel version, by use of a metal central divider which clips into the framework of the clapper door.
