Composition and Materials
The 10mm (3/8”) Rod Display System / Stainless Steel is a robust and heavy-duty rod suspension system, capable of effectively mounting great loads. Rods are made of are available in standard 1.5m (4′ 11-1/16″), 1m (3′ 3-1/32″) and 0.5m (1′ 7-11/16″) lengths with a male thread at one end and a female at the other to join multiple rods together to make any length — when properly fixed rods can support up to 200 kg (441 lbs) per fixing point (subject to fixing).
For durability, all rod display fittings, internal components, and screws are made from #SS303 stainless steel alloy. Grub screws used with support fittings have a plastic tip made of Nylon 6-6. The SS303 is a non-magnetic austenitic alloy specially designed for improved machinability while maintaining good mechanical and corrosion resistant properties. It is fairly resistant to general atmospheric corrosion, cleaning solutions, sterilizing solutions, dyestuffs, most organic chemicals, but has very limited resistance to acids. Ceiling and wall suspension tracks and rails used for cable mounting are made from extruded aluminum alloy AL6063. All the metal components come with a 12-month warranty.
For indoor and outdoor use — our stainless steel rod system and fittings perform well in both closed and open environments as long as there are not exposed to direct corrosive elements such as marine or submerged saltwater uses. For marine or other high humidity environments, please request stainless steel type 304/316 rods that have higher corrosion resistance. Follow the instructions and weight-bearing limitations indicated on the technical data-sheets.
Precautions / Performance and Safety
Use product properly, in a safe manner and for the application for which it was intended. It is essential to ensure the strength of the top ceiling fixings can bear the weight of the items being displayed while allowing for the tension in the rods. All components must match — make certain components such as panel and shelf supports, hooks and other fittings used with the rod system are suitable to provide adequate safety protection. Attachments must be properly installed and meet the recommended Safety Working Load Limit.
Components are suggested and warranted for interior and exterior use. Nova Display Systems practices sustainability and recycling. Most of our display systems are fabricated from non-ferrous recycling metals — aluminum, stainless steel, brass, bronze and copper alloys. With close to 100 percent recyclable content, these metals can be repeatedly recycled into similar or other products with no loss of quality, as reprocessing does not damage their molecular structure.
