Using Rigid Graphics and T3
Rigid panels can very quickly cover large flat areas to create graphic partitions, display walls, storage areas, towers, plinths and counters.
The robust nature of T3 Airframe means that it can easily accommodate panels of all types and weights from 1mm foamex up to 19mm plywood. Panels can be surface mounted for a seamless look or set within the frame using ‘L’ angle profiles.
Fitting of rigid graphics
Rigid graphics panels can be attached to both our Classic and Channel tube profiles.
Lightweight panels such as foamex can be surface fitted with T3 Graphic Hangers and magnetic tape.
The recommended method uses self-adhesive magnetic tape applied to the reverse of the panel. This then attaches to a 25mm special stainless steel insert on the tube (fig1). Attaching panels with magnetic tape is ideal when a seamless appearance is required. Small adjustments can be made to the panels in position. Adding T3 Graphic Hangers (fig 2) makes it much easier to position panels correctly first time and also prevents panel slip.
Hook and loop (velcroTM) can be used for heavier panels or where a more robust fixing is required.
Backlit panels can be either fixed within the tubular framework using ‘L’ angle profiles allowing the frame to be seen, or surface fixed to give a seamless look.
Load bearing panels (for video screens etc) and shelves can be incorporated into T3 designs using the same fixing method.
"Floating" panels can be created with T3 by combining stand-off sign fittings with our threaded inserts fitted into either the tube itself or into a bayonet accessory designed to lock directly into the T3 Connector
