Access Display Group, Inc. Swings Open its newly Patented Display Frame System with Gravity Lock

Access Display Group, Inc., a leading designer and manufacturer of changeable signage display frame solutions 
for visual merchandising and visual Display, announced that it has been granted Patent No. 7,360,330 by the 
U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

The new utility patent, titled "Multi-purpose display frame with gravity lock," is a continuation of its first U.S. 
patent application approved in 1994. The addition of a gravity locking system to its popular 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, positioned behind the front frame, as are the hinges, is hidden from view. The result is an attractive, 
functional display frame, -that you can’t tell swings open, and that allows rapid-change of posters, signs and 
dimensional items without taking the frame off 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,” said Charles Abrams, president 
of ADG.

“Although we developed our own profile designs, we don’t have to design frames from scratch to work with the 
system. Hundreds of wood and metal frame profiles, colors and finishes can be used that are readily available 
through numerous custom framing distributors. The versatility of the system allows easy customization with sizes 
and options that provide endless design possibilities for designers and architects,” said Abrams.

Thousands of “Swingframes” have been distributed throughout North America. Customers in all industries have 
incorporated Swingframe’s display solutions for their interior design projects. Small to national and Fortune 500 
companies; retail stores, corporate offices, financial, healthcare, hospitality, museums & exhibits, transportation 
facilities, sports and entertainment centers, schools and universities as well as government and military facilities 
have purchased Swingframes.

“A significant part of our business comes from resellers and POP designers. Because we can modify, customize 
and offer illuminated and lockable options, designers can incorporate many of the swingframe products into their 
own display designs or as and add on” states Abrams.

The new patent applies to numerous Swingframe wall and floor stand displays, built by the company. These 
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 poster displays and slim edgelit
