TRUCKADSŪ FRAME KIT
(click question to see answer)

 

A: Yes. Our patented vinyl banner frame system is legal in the U.S., Canada and Mexico when placed on both sides of a 102" wide truck to display advertising space. Make sure the banner frame system you install on a truck does not cause the vehicle to exceed the Department of Transportation (USDOT) truck width regulations for trucks operating in the U.S. All commercial banner frame systems for hire that we researched, do not comply with the USDOT CFR 23, 658.15 truck width limit.

A: Yes, We recognize some banner sizes must be an exact size. If necessary, when you order a banner, our easy order system lets you specify the banner size to within 1/8 of an inch, with a tolerance in overall size of + or - 1/4". See more about this. [NOTE: It is best if you can size the height and width of banners on "even whole inches". This allows you to avoid the end of a frame landing on a row of rivets (not safe), because truck box rivets are usually spaced evenly on "even whole inches".]

A: We have a lifetime frame warranty and will replace any damaged or defective frame not the result of the purchasers fault for free. When you buy banners from us, there is a 2 year guarantee on the inks.

A: No. Unlike all banner stretching metal frame systems where the banner must be stretched tight and often times re-stretched to stop the banner from banging the sides of the truck, the TRUCK ADSŪ Frame System requires no stretching. In fact, stretching only contributes to early ink failure. During installation, the flex banner must be "pulled" straight and square and this is done without tools.

A: No. The billboard mounting kit is bonded to the mounting surface which attaches a banner without damaging the surface. No holes to fill or paint to touch up.

A: Metal frames. When you compare all factors including, weight, shipment, installation, repairs, removal and the most important reason, "total cost of ownership", metal vinyl banner frame systems cost much more than the TRUCK ADSŪ Flex-Banner Frame System. TRUCKADSŪ FRAME KIT IS DESIGNED TO SAVE YOU GAS. Also, see our "Best Price Guarantee".

A: No. The TRUCK ADSŪ FRAMING SYSTEM remains clean and free of dirt and grime because it is a closed system and there are no pockets or joints that can fill up with water and dirt. Metal frames have many groves and pockets that are susceptible to collecting dirt and grime. This can cause metal frames to freeze up and difficult to remove with less than 2 crews, changing the banner.

A: No. Our truck side frame system is a value added product for any truck. That means a 53 foot truck is worth about $1000 more than it would be without the TRUCK ADSŪ FRAME SYSTEM. It will likely be useful to the next owner of the truck who can use it to advertise. You can't say that about metal frames that look like ugly picture frames, often without a picture; which makes it even uglier.

A: Yes. There are many circumstances where you may want to cut the vinyl into an unusual shape to fit on a wall. Also, there are many times when the bull nose corners at the front of the truck are curved and our frame system will accommodate these special situations beautifully. Metal frames cannot do this.

A: No. We have billboard mounting kit sizes from 5 square feet to 900 square feet and our heaviest banner and frame system which covers the side of a 53 foot trailer, weighs just 84 pounds. Compare this with our competitor's metal frames and banners that weigh up 450 pounds. Rod Harris, CEO TRUCK ADS

A: No. The frame projects less than 1/4" from the sides. Even when the vinyl banner is not installed there is no wind drag. You can't say that about some metal frames that have pockets and can actually cause the metal frame to loosen over time. This creates a potential safety hazard and higher fuel costs.

A: Just 3/16" - less than all other systems available today. There is no wind drag and less chance the frame system will be damaged by foreign objects coming in contact with the truck. The maximum width of a Commercial Motor Vehicle (CMV) is restricted. Be sure the frame system you install does not cause your truck to exceed USDOT regulations.

A: Never. Unlike metal frames that occasionally require re-stretching, our system keeps on looking great for as long as it is up. The vinyl banner in a metal frame system will actually start to bang against the sides of the truck from the wind after awhile and will need to re-stretched to prevent this.

A: The TRUCK ADSŪ frame system requires a minimum of 12 ounce vinyl up to 23 ounce maximum. For most applications, we recommend the 12 ounce vinyl. The lighter the vinyl, the less fuel you burn up going down the road. Most metal frame manufacturer's won't recommend 12 ounce vinyl. They use 16, 18, 23 or 28 ounce vinyl so the vinyl won't loosen so quickly after installation. Our system with 12 ounce vinyl won't loosen over time because it is not stretched during installation as required for a metal frame system. Also, heavier vinyl costs more per square foot.

A: The TRUCK ADSŪ billboard attaching system is strong and safe. It will not loosen and tear away from the truck body over time. Compare this with metal frames that are rigid. Metal frames do not breath with the truck like the TRUCK ADSŪ Frame and over time the rivets attaching it to the truck will loosen and possibly make the system unsafe and dangerous.

A: Yes! Click here to use our visualization tool. For this tool, the graphic file size cannot exceed 3mb.

A: Unlike banner sizes which can be critical, frame kits can be cut with scissors to fit the exact banner size. Ordering a frame a couple of inches larger is not necessary either, because each kit contains the right amount of frame and SECUR-TABSŪ plus 1-2ft, depending on the size of the frame ordered.

A: This happens occasionally, when the frame on the truck is installed before receiving the banner and confirming the banner size. Measure twice and cut once is the best method. If you need a patch frame for the substrate or the banner, go to our home page and select a black or clear frame from the drop down menu labeled "Dual Lock and other Products". Frame patch kits come with all necessary items for proper repairs and replacement.

A: Our proprietary, patented frame system is strong and safe. Our frames were tested safe by one of the world's leading independent vehicle testing facilities.

See technical bulletin: Strength Test. Actual drive time is estimated at over 216,000,000 miles, without failure. All frames come with a lifetime warranty.

A: Yes. TRUCK ADSŪ Frame kits on stationary walls and billboards cost less because less frame is required for this type of installation. When ordering for stationary installations, indicate if the application is for "glass or ceramic" or "other" surface. If you prefer, purchase Dual Lock Kits at bulk prices, for stationary installations only.

A: TRUCK ADSŪ Frames will securely adhere to raw metal, metal with baked on factory finish, fiberglass, glass and ceramic. Frame will remain in place until you decide to remove it. Surface where frame is to be attached must be a non-porous, smooth flat surface. Do not install TRUCK ADSŪ Frame directly to wood, brick, concrete or non-baked on painted surfaces. See installation manual for additional details.

A: Next day delivery available on credit card orders received by 11am ET. Available shipping options include next day air, second day air and ground shipment. Subject to Carrier limits.

A: TRUCK ADSŪ Frames are the slimmest profile frame system for vehicles, available for sale.

The frame is made from a polymer material that is less than 3/16" thick. The frame width is only 1" wide. The SECUR-TABSŪ are approximately 1.5" square. When attached to both sides of a 102" wide truck, the frame system does not exceed truck width limits mandated by the USDOT.

"TRUCK ADSŪ Frame Kit technology meets USDOT 23 CFR, 658.15 for truck width restrictions, when placed on both sides of a 102" wide truck."

TRUCKADSŪ Frame System is invisible when connected to a truck side and the banner is attached. That is why we call it THE INVISIBLE MEDIA FRAME SYSTEMŪ. When the banner is removed, the frame is hardly noticeable because it blends into the truck side and is only 1" wide. See cross section and installation photos at right.
