are still considered the only way to show rugs by the traditional
oriental rug dealers and some department stores. However, the
majority of retailers can't afford to employ the staff to help
customers throw back rugs one at a time, hence the growing popularity
of swinging-arm and sliding track rug displays that are customer
friendly for self selection.
Hanging Systems for Rugs
This is a wall mounted system of 3 metal rails that enables,
for instance, 3 rugs of the same pattern but in different sizes,
to be shown one atop the other. A system of rail clips and chains
allow the rugs to hang at different heights.
As easy as turning the pages in a book, this is truly customer
friendly. All of the weight of the rugs is taken by the arms
which allows a typically female shopper to see all the patterns
on offer, whereas this same potential customer has had to give
up, exhausted, after viewing only the top 2 or 3 rugs in a pile
on the floor.
Track Rug Displays
This is the professional rug dealer's choice. These displays
usually require a substantial ceiling height to show off the
larger rugs. They are available in 2 or 3 bay configurations
and hold anywhere from 30 to 60 rugs of varying sizes.
