What is a Sub-Frame?
- A frame cut to size and fitted to the back of the panel with VHB Tape/Heavy-Duty (HD) bonding tape
- It is an extruded aluminium profile, with a matt silver anodised finish
- Mitred corners are joined with Steel Push In Corners. Alternatively, use metal plates from the Hardware Kit, fixed in place with a screwdriver
- Hangers are fitted to the frame
What does a Sub-Frame do?
- Provides a means of fitting hangers to allow the panel to hang on normal picture hooks
- Adds rigidity to the panel
- Gives the panel a feeling of weight and enhances the quality
- Spaces the panel away from the wall so that it appears to float
How big should your sub frame be?
For square cut profiles using Moulded Push-In Corners (for SUB15 only) - measure the printed panel and allow 25-75mm border (depending on panel size). Take the external measurements of the sub frame e.g. 300mm x 500mm. Subtract 27mm to each end to allow for the width of the push in corners, making the framed example 446mm x 246mm.
Adhere the sub frame to the printed panel with HD Bonding Tape 6919. Remember, adhesive products work best if the surfaces to be bonded are totally clean and grease free. Use solvent surface wipes 9837 (sachets) or 9838 (tub).
Priced per metre, supplied in 3m lengths. Please order in metres, we will round up to the nearest full length.
