Our modern 5 Star Processing Service accurately and rapidly fabricates Aluminium Panels with Framing to meet your precise specification.
For your panels choose from our diverse range of perforated sheets that can be supplied in anodised, mill, satin brush or powder coated finishes
GA Posi-Grip Frames/Fixings
With its ‘snap-in’ inserts and dry-mitre corner joints our Posi-Grip system is the ultra professional way to frame perforated panels.
You’ll also find that strength and rigidity is provided by Posi-Grip’s single piece hollow outer frame. The inner ‘snap-in’ insert reduces the possibility of flexing while tightly gripping the aluminium sheet.
Another extremely effective Posi-Grip feature is the internally cleated corner joints, ‘invisibly’ pulling and tightening the aluminium frame profiles together.
GA Posi-Grip Instant Access Frames/Fixings
There are some things that serve a really useful purpose but you really don’t need to see them and aluminium panel fixings are one of those! That’s where our ‘Instant Access’ Posi-Grip system comes into its own.
Sometimes an image can convey as much information as a thousand words and that’s why we’ve illustrated how this ingenious system actually works. Essentially, it’s a pressure engagement system with high quality stainless steel pins that are located in a slot at the rear of the aluminium frame profile. The pins locate into friction bushes that are set into the opening surround and these securely grip the studs.
The aluminium panels can be removed by gently levering away from the fixing surface with a flat-ended tool.
GA Squeeze Frames
For added strength and rigidity all perforated our Squeeze Frame Aluminium Panels are produced by the 5 Star Fabrication Team with a plain (imperforate) border that sits inside the aluminium frame recess. Independent test results show significantly improved performance with this method of fabrication.
By utilising the ‘close tolerance’ alloy extrusion process in producing these aluminium profiles, the much dreaded ‘rippling or bowing’ effect of folded aluminium sheet trims can be avoided. You’ll also experience a stronger and straighter aluminium product, giving a more professional finished appearance.
GA Gravity Frames
Our Gravity Frames do exactly what you would expect of them!
Once our 5 Star Fabrication Team have produced these Gravity Frames, to your dimensional requirements, they can just be placed into horizontal openings and gravity does the rest! What could be simpler?
We are also able to roll these Gravity Frames into diameters as small as 150mm, making them suitable for porthole type applications.
