Chop Service for aluminium

Aluminium profiles can only be cut on a saw fitted with special blades.

For PSP's and Photolabs who don't necessarily have this specialist equipment the best way to order is through our Chop Service. You can order all our aluminium frame profiles and sub frame profiles mitre-cut to your required size.

You can now order our SUB15 profiles with the ends cut square for use with our new Plastic Push-In Corners. Order your assembly & hanging accessories separately.

 

Cutting Equipment

If you're producing aluminium frames or sub frames in volume we can also supply you with the right cutting equipment.
Speak to our Technical Services Manager, Jack Siwinski, Jack@lionpic.co.uk. 

 

How to Assemble

Use a pair of steel plates in each corner. The top plate contains grub screws which force the plates apart when tightened to hold the corner firmly in place.

1) Slot in the L Plates, joining 3 sides to make a 'U' shape.

2) For Art Frames slide the panel into the U and fit the fourth side. Align the corners as you tighten the screws. Fit Bow Springs into place.

OR, to make up a Tray Frame or Sub-Frame and fix the panel into place using Heavy Duty (HD) Bonding Tape.

3) Join the corners of the frame using Steel Push-In Corners (for mitre cuts) or Plastic Push-In Corners (for square cuts).

4) To smooth and finish the corners, stroke the shank of a screwdriver from front to back.

Bow Springs, CWH3 Hangers, Screw Plates, and Flat Plates are all available in handy kits for one frame or 20 frames. See all Hardware & Accessories for assembling and hanging Printed Panel displays.
