Clapper & Bookstand Displays

Clapper Door Display Units

Product Description:

Once the mainstay of most UK tile showrooms, clapper displays have helped the tile industry become what is is today. Although most recent showrooms now tend not to use these types of displays, often opting for more of a boutique look, you can still  purchase clapper displays from Vision where these suit your needs.


Due to the drop in demand over the last few years we no longer manufacture batches of clapper displays and hold them in stock as it is not cost-effective to do so, however we do still make these on a special order basis, normally within our standard 3-4 week lead-time.


Vision can offer a choice of two clapper door options which are Fixed trim and Removable full panel untrimmed.


Fixed trim:

The panels are supplied with an Anthracite MDF trim which is fitted to the edges of the MDF central panel. This provides a 12.5mm deep recess both sides of the panel. The clapper panel is then fitted with brackets to allow it to be lifted on and off the clapper display frame as required. When you need to re-tile simply chip off the old tiles and re-tile the panel again. With care, these panels can be re-used many times and new replacement panels are available from Vision as required. 


Removable Clapper Displays:
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 removable tile display panels are separate boards which slide in and out of a pre-fabricated clapper `door’. Just tile onto the MDF panels  provided (15mm thick) and slide the clapper panel into position with one panel either side of the main metal 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 us.

Bookstand Displays:

The Vision Bookstand clapper displays have 10 double sided clapper panels (20 x sides of display, plus 2 x back panels which can be tiled if required) and are available with the same fixed-trim or removable tile display panels as used on the full length clapper displays - making them completely interchangeable! The supporting framework is engineered to the take the heavy weight loads employed in displaying tiles and is finished to a high standard.


The removable clapper door system includes a lift-off front section for easy access to the display panels and the facility to insert a central divider in order to change the panel from full to split display, or vise versa.
