When assembled into a frame and bonded to the back of a printed panel, SUB15 makes it float away from the wall by 15mm. Apply HD Bonding Tape to fix to most panel sizes and substrate thicknesses.

- Order square cut on our Chop Service, or in 3m lengths to cut on your own equipment.

- Join with our 15mm moulded push-in corners to make a frame.

- Apply HD Bonding Tape to the frame and bond to the back of the panel. Clean all contact surfaces with a solvent wipe first.

- Fit CWH3 Square Sawtooth Hangers to the frame and hang on normal picture hooks, or use T Screws for safe and secure hanging.

What does a Sub-Frame do?

How big should your sub frame be?

For square cut profiles using Moulded Push-In Corners - 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.

For mitre cut profiles using Steel Push-In Corners or Double-Plate Hardware - do the same as you would for square cut profiles but there's no need to subtract to all for the moulding push in corners.

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.
