As the desire increases for placing branding or sponsor logos as close to the action as possible at sporting events, so does the need for a signage option to safely display that messaging. Padded a-frames offer a way to keep athletes safe while showcasing sponsors or branding right next to the area of play.
Softline™ A-Frames are AMI Graphics’ signature padded a-frames. Available in a 3’ x 8’ size, these padded a-frames are suitable for indoor or outdoor use and are great for field or court side placement. Our padded a-frames feature vinyl banners with a quick change Velcro system which allows for easy and affordable graphics changes. Constructed with 3” thick durable padding, Softline™ A-Frames fold flat for easy transportation and storage.
Here are some examples below of how padded a-frames can be used:
When looking for sideline signage options, North Carolina Central University chose the Softline™ A-Frames for their ability to alternate and change graphics easily as needed. Since they were choosing to place them behind the end zone in their football stadium, they knew that the padded a-frames would provide cushioning and collapse for safety in the event of any collisions.
NFL Flag Football chose to use Softline A-Frames to add branding to the sidelines and warm up areas of their flag football tournament events. Not only did padded a-frames allow them to boost their event with branding and color, they didn’t have to worry about them impeding player safety. As an added bonus, Softline™ A-Frames ability to fold flat allowed them to easily transport them to other events and locations.
Dalhousie University chose to use Softline™ A-Frames to highlight sponsors during basketball and volleyball games. The padded a-frames allowed sponsor logos to be placed directly courtside with the added convenience of being easily moved into storage areas after games to clear space in their busy athletic complex. Check out our previous project highlight on Dalhousie University’s use of Softline™ A-Frames.
The AVP chose Softline™ A-Frames for their beach sideline signage needs for their Pro Beach Volleyball Tour. These durable padded a-frames are able to hold up to the wear and tear of a multi-city tour, fold flat for easy transportation between events, and display sponsor logos for a key revenue stream without compromising athlete safety.
In a bit of a less conventional use for padded a-frames, the Boston Bruins chose Softline™ A-Frames to display key sponsors during on-ice promotions. Softline™ A-Frames provided a highly visible way to get the sponsor logo in front of the fans aside from the videoboard. Additionally, event staff could quickly set up and breakdown the a-frames within the allotted time and participant safety was not compromised.
