    Yes. It is much lighter and graphics are larger because you do not have an unsightly frame. When the alloy frames are damaged, the replacement time, cost and inconvenience caused can interrupt the functionality of the vehicle.

    How does Spedian work?

    Simply. We developed the Spedian  Exhaust System™ which works on a high pressure /low pressure principal. Once the advertising  banners are installed they are maintenance free having been tensioned at the time of installation. The installation time is short, maximum of two hours for a thirteen metre artic and you can drive away immediately after installation. In the UK we have tested the Spedian™  System products at the Motor Industry Research facility (MIRA)at Nuneaton and the Transportation Research Center (TRC) at Columbus Ohio in the USA.


    Does the system need re-tensioning?

    No. Unlike frame systems that are affected by wind drag and eventually wrinkle, Spedian™ needs no further tensioning after installation.
