Fair Lawn, NJ (PRWEB) January 10, 2013
Center Stage Productions, a leading provider of modular barricades, has developed a new, patented wall system for mall retail stores. Now that the hustle of the holiday season has come to a close, some store leases have expired, leaving mall developers with the responsibility of seeking out creative ways to make a vacancy look good until a new retailer moves in and fills the space. The innovative patented solution made from recycled materials keeps mall vacancies looking attractive until the new stores open for business.
Until recently, mall barricades haven’t changed for decades. The installation of drywall barricades has traditionally been viewed as a lengthy and messy disruption.
The new modular barricade system developed by Barricades Ltd., a division of Center Stage Productions, provides a quick, durable and clean alternative for shopping centers and retailers. The innovative system allows for quicker installation and removal and also prevents dust and noise from new store construction from migrating into the shopping center. The technologically advanced modular wall panels with interlocking seams and patented quick fasteners feature a hard-wearing surface with subtle flexibility that can withstand impact that would damage a traditional drywall barricade.
Barricades serve as a powerful advertising vehicle for the incoming retailer. The in-house graphic design department at Center Stage Productions prints durable vinyl graphics that wrap the barricade from floor to ceiling and around corners for a seamless image with impact.
“A two-man team can now install over 300 linear feet of construction barricades, with custom graphics, in one evening. No spackling, no painting, no mess and no disruption to mall customers,” said Michael DeZaio, President of Center Stage Productions.
As a member of the US Green Building Council, Barricades Ltd. is making an investment not only in wall system technology, but also in the planet. The wall panels are fabricated from reclaimed materials that would have otherwise occupied landfills. Even after their useful life, the aluminum framing in the barricades can be fully recycled and the walls themselves can be recycled and turned into materials for other industries. These modular barricades have a useful life of 20+ years compared to traditional drywall barricades that only last the life of the job before going to a landfill.
All materials used in Barricades Ltd.’s installations have achieved the class 1 fire rating standard, the highest rating given in the industry to ensure the safety of mall shoppers and construction workers. This rating is also critical during the process of passing fire safety and construction inspections.
When it is time for the barricade to come down and the new retailer to open its doors, Barricades Ltd. handles the wall system removal quickly during non-mall hours to avoid disruption to shoppers.
