Access Display Group, Inc., Freeport, NY, a designer and manufacturer of changeable signage-display frame solutions for visual merchandising, announced it received Patent No. 7,360,330 by the US Patent and Trademark office. The new utility patent, titled “Multi-purpose display frame with gravity lock,” is a continuation of the company’s first US patent application approved in 1994.

The gravity locking system, which has been added to Access Display Group’s line of display frames, secures a front frame that swings open and prevents it from opening without first sliding up the gravity lock rod. The lock and hinges are positioned behind the front frame, hidden from view. The display frame allows change of posters, signs, and dimensional items without removing the frame from the wall.

“The issuance of this patent expands and further enhances this display system, marketed and branded as ‘Swingframe,’ and reinforces Access Display Group’s leadership in providing the simplest, most versatile and changeable poster display and signage systems in the display fixtures industry,” says Charles Abrams, president of ADG.

The new patent applies to several Swingframe wall and floor-stand displays, built by ADG. The swing-open frame and display products include poster frames, sign holders, movie poster frames, shadow boxes, enclosed bulletin boards, letter board directories, menu cases, backlit posters displays, and slim edgelit lightboxes.
