Been looking to get a display booth made up or some plexi walls to put up for outdoor shows etc. Wondering what people are finding works well design wise etc for packing down and setting up ease and durability??

Currently use a screened tent but want to try something more durable like acrylic panels or plexi stlye booth and wondering what works best for you???

plexi

I've used them in the past. Biggest problem is clinging dirt and saw dust can make the whole set up look dirty.

I used netting in the past. People can see through it. It packs away easy and fastens with zip ties. It's been a while but I believe I bought hockey or soccer netting. You can look online and see what's out there. Good luck!

I would think it would be too warm in the summer, might work for winter, first thing I thought of was Art's comment with static electricity, But I could see it for indoor sport show type display.

Other than what others mentioned about appearance I also see a big issue with trapping fumes in your working area. I get this with ez up tents all the time as the venturi effect is right at my head level. Therefore unless the weather is inclement, I often carve without a canopy and just the netting around my ez up frame.

Several years ago i had plexiglass walls but for indoors mostly & electric saw. The advantage is people can get real close and watch but they were a bit of a hassle to keep clean and eventually started to fog up a bit from all the wiping. Outdoors just bird netting or stay downwind, people like the noise it's more dynamic...
