Features and benefits of Lockable Snap Frames.

snap frame is one of the simplest ways of displaying posters and signs. The front hinges snaps open making it easier to change posters. The Lockable snap frames locks by using a allen key making it tamper resistant. Poster will stay in excellent condition and you can rest assured your posters won't be removed or defaced with lock and the 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 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.

This lockable snap frame is designed with a sequential locking system, meaning the frame profiles can only be opened once the locking profile has been released by using the provided allen key.

Once clips are open remove the PVC cover and insert the required poster.

How wide is the snap frame?

The frame profile is 30mm 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. To hang indoors 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 aluminium composite panel backing and protected by anti-glare PVC cover.

Is there different types of front covers?

Anti- glare PVC covers and mostly used internally to prevent the glare on the poster. The anti glare cover takes away from the sharpness of the poster details. This is the cover that is supplied with the snap frame.

Clear PVC  covers are used when the lighting does not affect the posters and you require a much sharper image. This cover is supplied as a bonus cover for all frames A1 and smaller.

Polycarbonate is the third option and it is used for outdoors. This cover is UV resistant and does not shrink or turn yellow outside. If this cover is required it must be purchased separately.

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 to prevent the cover from turning yellow or shrinking.

What thickness paper can I use?

The frame can hold a poster with a maximum thickness of 1mm
