ANSWERS

 

1. Is the TRUCK ADSŪ Frame System legal on Trucks? 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.

2. My banner and frame size needs to be exact and cannot be rounded to the nearest inch. Can I specify fractional dimensions? 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".]


3. What is the TRUCK ADSŪ Frame System guarantee? We have a lifetime frame warranty and will replace any damaged or defective frame not the result of the purchasers fault for free. Shipping charges not included.  When you buy banners from us, there is a 2 year guarantee on the inks holding their color.

4. Does the banner need to be stretched as tight as a drum? No. Unlike all banner stretching metal frame systems where the banner must be stretched tight and often times re-stretched occasionally to stop the banner from banging the sides of the truck, the TRUCK ADSŪ Frame System requires no stretching. During installation, the flex banner must be "pulled" straight and square and this is done without tools.

 


5. Do TRUCK ADSŪ Frames damage the truck or wall in any way? 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.


6. Which frame system costs more - metal frames or TRUCK ADSŪ Frame System? 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. Also, see our "Best Price Guarantee".

7. Does the TRUCK ADSŪ Frame System get dirt and road grime embedded in it? 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.


8. Is it necessary to remove the TRUCK ADSŪ Frame when you sell your truck or trailer? 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.


9. Can the TRUCK ADSŪ Frame be custom fitted around curves and irregular corners and angles? 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.

10. Are the TRUCK ADSŪ Frames and banners heavy like our competitors metal frames and banners? 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 competitors metal frames and banners that weigh up 450 pounds.


11. Do TRUCK ADSŪ Frames cause drag and contribute to higher fuel costs when mounted on a truck? 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.


12. How far does the TRUCK ADSŪ Frame project out from the side of the truck or wall?
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 or you could be fined.

 

 


13. Does the vinyl on a TRUCK ADSŪ frame system ever need to be re-stretched? 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.


14. What weight vinyl should I use? 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.


15. Is the TRUCK ADSŪ Frame System safe, or will it loosen over time like metal frames do? 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.


16. Can I see what my AD will look like on a Truck before I buy it? Yes! Click here to use our visualization tool. For this tool, the graphic file size cannot exceed 3mb.


17. How do I order TRUCK ADSŪ Frame Kits? 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.


18. What if I make a mistake and need more frame? 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.


19. How strong is the TRUCK ADSŪ Frame System? Our proprietary, patented frame system is strong and safe. See technical bulletin, How Strong are TRUCK ADSŪ Banner Frame Kits? Our frames were tested safe by one of the world's leading independent vehicle testing facilities and have actual drive time is estimated at over 216,000,000 miles, without failure. The TRUCK ADSŪ Frame System is safe, so long as the installation manual is followed and authorized kit components are used. All frames come with a lifetime warranty.


20. Can I use TRUCKADSŪ Frame kits for mounting banners on building walls? Yes. Just order the size you need. Most 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.


21. What are the mounting surface requirements for the TRUCK ADSŪ Frame System? 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.

22. How long does it take to get my TRUCK ADS Frame Kits™ shipped? 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.


23. What do TRUCK ADS Frame Kits™ look like? 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.

24. What does it cost to wrap a semi-trailer with the TRUCKADS Frame and Banner System? For do it yourself installers, a 53 foot long semi-trailer costs less than $3900 for both sides. For a 24 foot box truck it costs less than  $2200 for both sides. Add about $650 if you do the back of the truck or trailer with a decal. For pricing or ordering, click here.
