Most of the maps shown on our classroom page come with spring rollers already mounted. The exceptions are clearly noted on the individual page. For non-classroom maps, this adds about 2 weeks to the leadtime. We can normally mount maps up to 84" wide on this mechanism. As shown in the pictures below, the roller mechanism includes includes brackets and if ordered "classroom style" includes a C-shaped channel that runs the length of the map. these pictures also illustrate that the maps can be hung from a ceiling too. This channel or "backboard" is used to hang the roller mechanism on hooks above a whiteboard or to slide into a multi-map rack. The rack allows a classroom or boardroom to have multiple maps to pull down, one in front of the other.
