Lion 54

New and innovative for 2018

Load Testing Many of our hangers and hooks are now load tested We have built our own test rig so you can be more certain of the safe load carrying capacity of our range of frame hardware. Our little weight icon now shows in two forms, one black and the other black with a red dot. The black one shows a load figure which is based on our experience and judgement, we tend to err on the low side. The black and red one gives a figure which is derived from actual test results on our rig. Typically, the figure is between 25% and 33% of the load at failure. If something is very important to you, then please ask us for a copy of the test report. 8kg 8kg

Perlon Guide Do your frames angle forward on hanging systems? Fit these singly or in pairs on the top edge of a frame. With them, they should not angle forwards as much as before. See p.162

New SUB-15 Sub-Frame Profile components You now have choices when it comes to joining this very popular profile. We have designed a one-piece moulded push-in corner which works with square cut pieces. The face of the corner has a unique combination of curves which help eliminate the occasional problem of the sharp points of a mitred frame making an indent in the printed panel when flexed. We have also completed development of a steel one piece push-in corner plate, for speedy joining of mitred pieces. This gives you an alternative option to the well proven double-plate steel corners.
