Free Standing Display Units (FSDU’s)

FSDU is an acronym for Free Standing Display Unit. FSDUs are one of the most flexible and popular styles of point-of-sale display, because they can be placed anywhere in the retail environment. FSDUs work well to convince shoppers to buy products because they disrupt the regular retail shelving in the shop aisles and the eye is naturally drawn to any different and unusual design. FSDUs are frequently used to promote new product launches, special offers, discounts etc. They are also used by household brands at key seasonal times of year to push additional sales.

Cardboard FSDUs

We design and make cardboard FSDUs in all shapes and sizes because everything we manufacture is customised to suit your brand and your products. We take measurements from your products to ensure a perfect fit, and can make recommendations on how to display your merchandise within your budget. Our cardboard FSDUs are environmentally friendly because the board we use is made up of recycled cardboard – furthermore the FSDUs can be recycled once finished with. Most of our FSDU designs are completely plastic free – just let us know if you prefer a plastic free design

FSDU Units

FSDU units maximise awareness of in-store promotions, therefore they increase sales. This is great scenario for both the retailer and the product manufacturer. Therefore, many retailers are happy to make room on the shop floor for FSDU units. In general, we ship FSDU units flat on a pallet. They are quick and easy to assemble on the shop floor and can be filled directly with your products. We also offer assembly and fulfilment options on our FSDUs, meaning we can assemble your FSDU and pack it with your products, before packing it all into an outer and shipping it directly to the store. Please note we generally design FSDUs to be much stronger if they will be stocked during transit.

FSDU Design

We are specialists in FSDU design. We custom design every display to suit your brief. If you’re not sure what you need we can offer advice and “hand-holding” through the design process. We always listen to you, your requirements and budget rather than giving you the hard sell and we’ll never give you an FSDU design which is unworkable.

FSDU Display Units

FSDU display units can be designed to hold many different items. We can design FSDUs to hold books, magazines, CDs and DVDs etc. in a pocket design. The dividers keep everything neatly organised and easy to replenish. FSDU display units with shelves are a multi-purpose design which will hold most products. FSDU display units for bottles containing liquids are heavy and usually require additional strength – this is not a problem for us – we can add to the FSDU design to make it stronger.

Our Materials

Single Wall and Double Wall Flutes

Corrugated cardboard is a sustainable and recyclable material which is both lightweight and extremely strong. Depending on the thickness of the corrugations and finish of the liner board, corrugated card can be elegant, strong, and long lasting. Corrugated cardboard can be used for boxes and displays but also furniture, exhibitions, games and art.
E flute is mainly used for inner containers, presentation boxes and smaller countertop displays. Double wall corrugated cardboard such as EE or EB is used where box strength is important, or for free standing displays and dump bins. Single wall corrugated cardboard such as B or C flute is generally reserved for economical outer boxes and cartons. BC flute is used for more demanding applications.

Corrugated Cardboard

All the benefits of corrugated cardboard but with the added convenience of rigidity in sheet form. This material is ideal for use in cardboard furniture, exhibition and semi-permanent displays. It can also be used as packing material for fragile items.

Display board is a solid board without corrugations and is generally used for high-end displays, and in places where curves are desired such as elliptical towers or round displays. It is often used as a cladding material, where the strength and rigidity of a display will come from the corrugated cardboard components inside. Display board offers excellent print finish and a long-lasting high quality surface.

Display Cardboard

Ideal for use where cardboard is not suitable, UV-stable Correx can be used outdoors, in wet weather conditions, can be washed clean, and can be printed as usual. Commonly used for displays in garden centres and DIY stores.

Correx Cardboard

Extremely light weight and very rigid, foam board is ideal for hanging display boards. It has a very smooth surface for high print quality. 

Foamex is a solid plastic sheet material which has excellent longevity. Frequently this material is used for outdoor signage and has a good appearance once printed. Occasionally, Foamex is used for indoor displays where complex and detailed cut-outs reduce the strength of cardboard i.e. standees.


Predominantly, transparent polypropylene sheeting is used for producing mop trays, which are waterproof trays to fit around the base of a corrugated cardboard display. Once fitted, the floor can be mopped as usual without the need to move the display to a dry area.
