Fitting wire or cord to a frame is a tiresome and time consuming task, which can also be full of uncertainty for you - the framer. Is it strong enough? Will it stretch? Have I set the hanging height correctly? Can the hanging height be adjusted? Will my twisting or knots come loose?
ODEMS System© is the only quick, secure and adjustable way to wire a picture. ODEMS Looped Wires come with loops already pressure crimped at each end - and they just won't come undone. The are made from high quality multi-strand steel wire, strength tested by Scientifics Ltd in Birmingham UK.
To install Odems System©, fix one end to one side of the frame with a Single or a Double clamp through the loop, and use another clamp as a guide at the other side. The end is secured with an Odems Adjuster or a third clamp.
Odems System© is available either in single frame bags, with everything needed for one frame, or in packs of wires, clamps and adjusters. Everything is available in silver or brass finishes.
