Features and benefits of Snap Frames.
A snap frame is one of the simplest ways of displaying posters and signs. The front hinges snaps open making it easier to change posters. No tools are necessary and clip frame does not need to be removed from the wall. Posters will stay in excellent condition thanks to the PVC protective cover. The screw holes are hidden when the front cover is closed. Poster frames can be hung portrait or landscape.
They are suitable for the home to showcase your favourite poster, evacuation diagrams in public areas such as hospitals, community centres, movie theatres and shopping centres.
How do I update my graphics?
The snap frame is single sided; it can be clipped open from all four sides. Once clips are open remove the PVC cover and insert the required poster.
How wide is the snap frame?
The frame profile is 25mm wide and this creates a 10mm overlap of your poster on each side. The frame stands out approximately 10mm from the wall.
How is the frame mounted?
The aluminium Snap Frame comes with pre-drilled holes and with wall fixings and screws ready for mounting. You can also use double sided tape to mount the snap frame to a wall.
What is the frame made of?
The frame is made from aluminium with a white non transparent backing and protected by Clear PVC Cover.
What about the cover?
The frame comes with a clear PVC cover. The thickness of all the covers is 0.4mm
Can I use this frame outdoors?
Yes, however you should print on waterproof paper. If you are going to use the snap frame outdoors a outdoor Polycarbonate cover must also be purchased as the anti-glare cover that comes with the frame may turn yellow or shrink in UV Light.
What thickness paper can I use?
The frame can hold a poster with a maximum thickness of 1mm.
