Prohibited Materials & Substances
Please note that Clarion Gaming does not permit the following stand construction methods or materials:
- Chipboard (unless being used as dressing only).
- Sanding and cutting without extraction.
- Led-based paints and primers.
- Products containing isocyanate or labelled as H332 (harmful).
Effective immediately, Clarion Gaming is implementing further changes whereby we will no longer accept timber stand construction that does not contain prefabricated structural elements or requires excessive cutting onsite. This applies to ground mounted structures as well as rigged elements.
All timber constructions must have a timber frame built ahead of arriving within the exhibition halls comprising of connected horizontal and vertical cross-bracing. Build materials must be fit for purpose and meet fire regulations.
The cutting of timber onsite is only permitted when used for dressing only, and suitable extraction is mandatory.
This new change has been implemented to improve safety within the exhibition halls; to reduce congestion within the aisles; to ensure a more efficient and stress-free build and breakdown, and to contribute towards better sustainability within the industry. All stands must be built with safety, sustainability, and reusability in mind.
Pre-show evidence of the use of prefabrication will be required during the inspection process and prior to Clarion Gaming and their appointed stand plan inspection agency issuing Permission to Build. Your appointed Stand Contractor will need to provide details of how the stand will be built in line with the show timetable.
Construction will be stopped immediately if unsuitable working methods or materials are found onsite. Further sanctions may apply.
