What is a panel connector?

A panel connector is a versatile construction element that firmly and securely connects panels made of a wide variety of materials. It is a key element in exhibition stand construction for creating structures or defining spaces.

The Klem panel connector is characterized by its simple functionality: By pressing two sturdy clamping jaws together, the panels are securely joined without damage and without drilling holes. This method enables quick assembly and easy handling and makes the Klem an ideal tool for stand builders, designers and companies.

The simple assembly makes the Klem ideal for use in exhibition stand construction. It is reusable, durable and offers a practical solution for flexible stand designs and creative presentations.

The use of the Klem connector in trade fair concepts and stand design

The Klem connector is most commonly used for the construction of flexible partitions and partition walls. But the connector also shows its strengths in exhibition stand construction. Let yourself be inspired by how the Klem connector can enhance your trade fair presentation!

  • Individual exhibition stands: Klem can be used to create exhibition stands of any shape and size, going far beyond simple partition walls and partitions.
    • The versatility of Klem enables creative constructions such as folded or curved walls, prisms and domes. This allows you to design the spaces you need for your presentations, product exhibitions or meetings - as open presentation areas or closed meeting areas.
    • The Klem connector takes your individual needs into account and implements your ideas in an effective and aesthetically pleasing way. Regardless of whether you are planning a minimalist stand or a complex, eye-catching installation.
  • Displays and showcases: Use the precision and elegance of the Klem connector to construct showcases and display units that put your products or exhibits in the best light. The Klem Mini is particularly suitable for use with fine, thin panels.
  • Platforms and stages: The Klem connector can be used to build platforms or small stages for presentations, lectures or product demonstrations. Thanks to its robustness and flexibility, it can be easily adapted to any presentation concept.
  • Partition walls and room dividers: Klem is predestined for the quick and easy construction of partition walls, movable walls or room dividers within an exhibition stand. Flexible solutions support you in optimally designing rooms, defining different areas within a stand or directing visitor flows.
  • Furniture: The Klem connector opens up new possibilities when designing stand furniture. Tables, benches or shelves can be individually designed and perfectly integrated into the overall look of your exhibition stand. Counters, counters, reception areas and meeting points can also be individually designed and equipped with furniture.
  • Information stands and signage: The quick and easy assembly of information stands or signage is child's play thanks to the use of Klem connectors. Whether flat or three-dimensional structures, they attract the attention of trade fair visitors.
  • Theme stands: The Klem connector enables the realization of theme-specific exhibition stands. Create extraordinary worlds that captivate your visitors. With Klem, you can implement creative ideas without limits and create unforgettable trade fair experiences.
  • Monumental structures and moving art installations: Use the strength of the Klem connector to create impressive, large structures such as pyramids, towers or art installations. Such elements serve as central eye-catchers on your exhibition stand and leave a lasting impression on your visitors.
  • Flexible storage areas: With Klem, you can set up small storage areas in or behind your exhibition stand. Here you can safely store additional products, marketing materials or personal items.
  • Staff areas: Separate areas offer your team rest breaks, meals or simply moments to get together during the trade fair - small oases of calm for a pleasant team atmosphere.
  • Mobile workstations: Use Klem connectors to build mobile workstations that can be flexibly positioned in the exhibition area. Ideal for laptops, product demonstrations, discussions with stand visitors and for spontaneous tasks that require a stable base.
  • Coordination and organization: Use Klem connectors to create organization centers on your stand. Here you can make important documents, schedules or task lists accessible to your team.

Why the Klem system is indispensable in trade fair construction. Six reasons for Klem!

  • Flexibility in design: The Klem system allows panels with thicknesses from 2 to 19 mm to be joined at angles from 90° to 270°. This flexibility and versatility means that individual stand concepts can be implemented quickly and easily - regardless of whether you are designing walls, partition elements or complete stand constructions.
  • Quick and easy assembly: Forget complicated assembly instructions and time-consuming assembly work. With the Klem system, you only need a few hands, an Allen key and a little time to set up your exhibition stand. This not only saves assembly time, but also costs.
  • Aesthetics and design: The Klem connector as a design object has even been included in the permanent collection of the MoMa in New York. It fits seamlessly into any stand design. Its egg-shaped form and high-quality workmanship make it not only a practical but also a visually appealing design element.
  • Individual solutions and expandability: Whether you are planning a small information stand or a large, complex trade fair presentation - the Klem system adapts to your needs. Thanks to the wide range of accessories, such as floor rollers, wall brackets or lighting elements, individual solutions can be easily implemented.
  • Stability and safety: Despite its simple assembly, the Klem system offers exceptional stability. The patented silicone inserts hold the panels securely and firmly in place - even with high visitor numbers and intensive use in the hustle and bustle of a large trade fair.
  • Sustainability through reusability: In times when sustainability is becoming increasingly important, the Klem system offers a decisive advantage: the connectors and panels can be used again and again. In this way, you actively contribute to reducing waste and conserving resources.

Assemble, connect, fix!

Tired of complicated panel connectors? Use a different connector for every joint? Cumbersome to use and a wobbly affair in the end?

With Klem, you have a single type of connector for different panel thicknesses and angles. You only need one or two people to lend a hand, an Allen key for each person and a little time for assembly.

Look forward to amazingly stable and flexible constructions!
