A-Frame is a universal aluminium tablet enclosure for all tablet devices

Tablets are revolutionising retail, bringing together the online and in-store experiences for a true omni-channel reality. Consumer level tablet devices have become the go to hardware solution due to familiarity, price point and appearance – but consumer level products aren’t always designed with the hard commercial world in mind. That’s why we developed the A-Frame, a truly universal tablet enclosure and mounting solution suited for all tablet devices.

A-Frame configuration

A-Frame is available in three main sizes and a configuration of locking mechanisms to suit all devices and requirements. Whilst A-Frame is readily customisable, it is truly “channel-ready” meaning that its standard enclosure accommodates a range of 8” and 10” tablets, straight out of the box

Step 1: Choose your A-Frame enclosure
