  • fotoflōt pro (pictured above)

Prints are sandwiched between a layer of acrylic glazing and Dibond backing. Sizes range from 15in x 10in up to 10ft x 4ft. This is an ideal image display system for commercial and industrial applications where size, durability, and an impressive presence are important. Custom shapes and rounded corners are available. Both glossy and matte finishes are also available, as well as acrylic thicknesses from 1/16” to 1/4”.

fotoflōt pro prints are made as traditional silver-halide photo prints (“C prints”) on Fuji Crystal Archive paper using the Lambda photographic system. The panels are constructed by sandwiching the prints between a layer of clear acrylic glazing and a sheet of white Dibond as stabilizer in the back. This technique is the preferred medium for high-end photography in Europe and becomes more popular in photo galleries and museums in the US as well. It is often referred to as “C-print mounted to Plexiglas”.

We have selected Dibond as backing material for its superior dimensional stability. It has been specifically designed to be a light but extremely dimensionally stable sheet product, is used extensively in architectural settings, and it is made from mostly recycled materials.

Depending on the thickness of acrylic used and your viewing angle, the product edge can appear transparent, frosted, or mirror like reflective. The thicker acrylic also gives some “3d” depth to the prints.

fotoflōt pro allows some level of customization:

  • Glossy or matte acrylic surfaces. Even museum quality or high impact surface protection are available
  • Acrylic glazing thickness between 1/16″ and 1/4″
  • Standard and custom product sizes of up to 10ft x 4ft
  • Sharp, visually sharp, and rounded corners for rectangular products
  • Non-rectangular shapes
  • Mounting holes for puck mounting

Standard fotoflōt pro panel comes with a box frame attached to the back. The frame is constructed from black anodized extruded aluminum, provides flexible wall, cleat, and cable mount options, and floats the print 0.75” away from the wall. It is recessed from all four sides of the panel so that it is invisible once the fotoflōt pro is mounted on a wall.

Each fotoflōt pro panel comes with a unique serial number attached to the back that allows for easy reordering and customer service.

fotoflōt classic is a cleverly designed magnetic display system for hanging photographs or any other digital artwork. Swapping out pictures is as simple as changing magnets on a fridge. The fotoflōt display system uses mounting brackets that attach to your wall. Each bracket has magnets embedded into them. Panels have the opposite magnets on the back in matched locations. Once the panel is near the mount, the powerful neodymium magnets snap it into place.IMG__2973

fotoflōt classic panels are printed on Fujicolor Crystal Archive Professional Paper Super Type C, with a matte finish. We print on the Lambda photographic system, which uses lasers to produce the highest quality image you can get. After the image is printed, the archival paper is adhered to a thin panel of 1/8” gray acrylic. Print and acrylic are then precision cut with a laser, so there is no border around the picture and the edge is flawless. The laser fuses the paper and acrylic, ensuring the print will never curl or fray (as it does on foam core or Masonite boards).

The patented magnets are embedded in raised acrylic discs that are welded to the back of the p. The magnets on the frame fit snugly into the acrylic discs, precisely positioning the image during hanging. The powerful magnets will always pull the panels straight as long as the bracket is mounted level on the wall. Locks are optionally available to make sure no graphics go missing.fotoflot classic back desk 15x5

The mounting brackets are metal frames that screw into the wall. The mount can be installed anywhere you can hang a framed picture. In some cases and with additional magnets, we can support mounting directly to metallic surfaces without a mounting bracket. Some of our customers hide an ugly electric cabinets with fotoflōt panels.

Each fotoflōt classic panel comes with a unique serial number attached to the back that allows for easy reordering and customer service.

After the image is printed, the archival paper is adhered to a thin panel of 1/8” gray acrylic. Print and acrylic are then precision cut with a laser, so there is no border around the picture and the edge is flawless. The laser fuses the paper and acrylic, ensuring the print will never curl or fray (as it does on foam core or Masonite boards).

classic wall collage – installation & ordering

overview:

If you are interested in purchasing fotoflōt products, have a clear idea about how you want to arrange them, and have print-ready digital files, we recommend you proceed to ordering. If instead, you are considering a larger more complex project, we offer design services to help create the layout and communicate your plans to others at your company.

We can provide a design proposal for the size space you specify, utilizing images you provide. We will crop the images to either standard or specified custom fotoflōt sizes, position them artfully as a multi-image collage, and email you a PDF for approval.

Once approved, we organize installation services that come to your location and put them up for you, matching the design you approved. Alternatively, your design can be rendered with an installation template. Taping the template to your wall accurately locates the drill holes needed for all the magnetic brackets, accurately, according to the design. From there, the installation is Do-it-Yourself. For either of these services, please contact a Benchmark sales rep for an estimate.

Down the road, when you want to change out one of your images, you can easily place an order online for replacement graphics. Simply measure the size of the image you’re replacing, locate that size on the online ordering website, upload your image, and place your order.

ideas for using fotoflōt

 

  • fotoflōt pro

Because of their construction, fotoflōt pro panels are heavier and make a more substantial visual impression, so are best used as artful features of a room. If appropriate for your application, the high gloss finish really makes colors and details pop. Available all the way up to 4ft x10ft, they can dominate a view.

  • fotoflōt classic

They’re perfect for spaces where graphics may need to be changed or rearranged effortlessly. They have been used for :

  • Artful collages to show off a company’s accomplishments (see wall collage for more info)
  • Conference rooms where graphics can be changed easily depending on the meeting. With this system, graphics can be moved in seconds.
  • Employee walls highlighting portraits of top performers
  • Corporate lobbies to display prominent customer logos
  • Hallways to display images of high profile projects
  • Office identification plaques including portraits and biographies of the staff
  • fotoflōt mini

A project commissioned by the Harvard Business School provides a great example. 14,000 gift boxed fotoflōt mini were used in a global capital campaign to deliver an image and message to supporters and potential contributors.

fotoflōt mini has also frequently been used as gifts, both professional and personal.
