The everlasting appeal of fluted display boards

The everlasting appeal of fluted display boards

What are fluted display boards?

Fluted display boards are made from corrugated polypropylene, a type of plastic that’s known for its rigidity and water-resistant qualities.

These kinds of boards have many different trade names. You’ll often see them referred to as Correx boards, as this is the term that’s most widely used in the market – but in fact, many other brands, such as Proplex, Polyflute and Coroplast, have become synonymous with this product too.

Whatever you want to call them, though, fluted display boards are wonderfully printable and easy to fold and score, which makes them an attractive option for advertisers who are looking for a fast, easy and versatile way to promote their latest product or service.

What are fluted boards used for?

Because they are very resistant to wear and tear, fluted display boards are often used to create those familiar For Sale or To Let signs that are used by estate agents to advertise their latest properties. You may also see them lining the streets of new developments, as they’re usually the signage solution of choice amongst building companies and scaffolders.

The material itself can be applied in all sorts of ways, within all kinds of industries – but as corrugated signs are notoriously affordable and malleable, you’ll often see fluted boards being used to create temporary signage at short term events and festivals. Many people also choose to customise their own fluted display boards to create hard-hitting placards for protests, strikes and political campaigns.

How long will corrugated boards last?

Don’t get us wrong – though they are surprisingly durable given their lightweight look and feel, Correx boards are not the most long-lasting products in our range. If you’re after longer-term solutions, you may want to take a look at our PVC banners, printed boards or pavement signs, all of which will be a more permanent addition to your marketing arsenal.   

But as long as they’re well-looked-after and shielded from extreme weather conditions, you can expect your fluted display boards to retain their shape and vibrancy for at least six months.

Plus, as we mentioned previously, fluted boards are also incredibly lightweight, which means they can be easily transported between locations and re-used time and time again in different environments.
