Note: For secure mounting of large and heavy items, it is essential to attach standoffs directly to wall studs. If studs are not accessible, additional blocking may be necessary for proper support.

Composition and Materials

The edge-grip standoff supports are well built, easy adaptable and quick to install. They consist of a few quality building components — standoff support bases of various sizes, front sign/panel edge-grip support, and other accessories such as base plates. Fittings are made of various metal alloys and supplied in few standard finishes — satin anodized aluminum, satin chrome brass alloy UNS C3604/CZ121 (CuZN39Pb3), and satin brushed stainless steel SS304. Other custom finishes such as clear or color anodized, polished chrome, or brushed (warm) nickel plating are available upon request. Grub screws used for fittings are made of AISI 12L14 Carbon Steel (UNS G12144) and have a plastic tip of Nylon 6-6. All metal components come with a 12-months warranty.

Edge-Grip Sign/Panel Standoff Support system components come in few traditional finishes such as satin anodized, satin nickel/chrome, and natural stainless steel. These are most popular finishes and are available in stock for immediate purchase. Other custom finishes such as color anodized, polished chrome, or brushed (warm) nickel, polished stainless steel, and satin/matte black are available upon request.

Product Limitations

Most sign and panel support system components perform well in all closed environments as long as they are not exposed to direct weathering such as rain, snow, moisture, etc. For marine or other high humidity environments, please request stainless steel type #SS303/304 or #SS316 standoff supports that have a higher corrosion resistance. Follow the instructions and weight-bearing limitation indicated on the technical data sheets.

Precautions / Performance and Safety

Please ensure that the product is used in a safe manner and for its intended application. Always inspect the installation surface to verify that it can support the weight of the panel. All installations must be carried out using appropriate hardware and protective gear to ensure safety. Attachments should be correctly installed and meet the recommended safety working load limit.

Environmental Considerations

Standard stock components are suggested and warranted for interior use only. 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.
