RedAnt Design is an established and respected company. Our management team has in excess of 20 years’ experience in the exhibition industry. We have our own manufacturing facilities and we operate nationwide and internationally. Our customers are important to us and we look to establish long-term relationships with them. Whatever your exhibition stand requirements we can assist you.
System stands use modular components as the basis of the structure. They are usually faster to build and are more portable and reusable than custom-built stands. RedAnt Design holds a considerable stock of components that are available for hire to our clients. Clients can also purchase their own systems which we will store and maintain. System stands are often more cost-effective than custom-built stands, but this is not always the case. System stands fill an important space in the market – they can be as simple or as complex as required.
Custom-built stands are just that – they are custom-designed and manufactured specifically for a client’s needs. Generally, they are a more impressive and expensive option. However, these stands are less flexible and are not entirely reusable (although this can be factored into the design). Nothing beats a custom stand for impact and originality. You name it, RedAnt Design can supply it.
It is a myth that custom built stands cannot be reused. However the cost of storage, refinishing, transport and rebuilding is a factor. If the stand is to be used more than once it is important that we know this at the initial design stage, so that we can cater for this requirement. There are also always limits on the length of time for which a custom stand can be reused.
Exhibition stands comprise a wide range of materials and finishes. These vary hugely in cost. So if we don’t have a budget we can miss your requirement, either by designing something which is beyond your budget or by not giving you the high-quality finish you desire. RedAnt Design is skilled at supplying striking, high-quality stands within our clients’ budgets. A limited budget is just another factor we take into account. So a budget is imperative – without it we waste time and creative energy.
Depending on our order book and the size of the stand, the lead time is 7-10 working days.
Large complex stands can take up to 2-3 weeks. The more time you give us the better, as it enables our design team to fully consider all aspects of your exhibition stand and make sure that you get exactly what you want.
According to structural regulations, any structure over and including 2.5m in height requires an engineer to sign off the temporary structure. RedAnt Design uses the services of registered structural engineers. The engineer’s certification protects us, you and the exhibition visitors.
A COC is a Certificate of Compliance. All electrical installations have to be certified by a qualified electrician. RedAnt Design only uses qualified electricians who submit a certificate to the organisers signing off their work as safe.
The local council fire marshal is required by law to sign off any temporary structure at an event, ensuring that certain requirements for fire safety have been met. Safety of exhibitors and visitors is of paramount importance.
We operate at any venue or event across South Africa. In addition we have completed many exhibition stands and activations in neighbouring states and further afield.
Storage can be quoted for and is subject to an annual contract with payment due in advance.
