LEWISVILLE, TX -- New from Graphics that Pop is the Ultra-Light freestanding micromarket, a modular system designed around durable panels that weigh only 40-45 lbs. (previously over 100 lbs.). It breaks down for transport on one pallet, and is easy to move and set up. The GTP Ultra-Light is the latest addition to the manufacturer's new micromarket products introduced during April's NAMA OneShow in Chicago | SEE STORY

Adaptable to the specific layout requirements of the location, the GTP Ultra-Lite incorporates easily changed graphics. The manufacturer can supply backlit or solid headers with custom graphics, and the system is engineered to simplify customization to match breakroom decor and incorporate location logotypes. GTP performs the design work at no cost to the operator.

GTP fabricates the panels with 1/8" aluminum angle and countersinks T-nuts into the lightweight material, securing them in place with epoxy adhesive. Rugged black wire is formed to produce shelving 18" deep, supplied with adjustable product dividers. Shelves are "stair-stepped" for optimum light distribution to enhance product visibility.

The system is designed for expansion above reach-in display coolers up to eight feet high. Brackets adapted from GTP's well-known Tuffronts vending machine alignment system ensure that coolers never become misaligned.

GTP observed that long useful life is an important attribute of a micromarket. "When considering an investment in your micromarket fixtures, ask yourself: how long will this last?" said company founder Robert Liva. "How easy is it to modify in the future? If something breaks, can it be repaired?

"Our system will last for decades," he said. "It can be modified at any time. Every panel and part can be replaced." To achieve long-lasting structural strength with as little weight as possible, GTP's micromarket uses custom-made, lightweight balsa plywood from Ecuador.

GTP has produced several videos demonstrating the ease of assembly and the durability of the Ultra-Light freestanding micromarket system.

To celebrate the introduction of its Ultra-Light freestanding micromarket, GTP is offering free shipping on orders within the continental United States through Dec. 31.
