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 tamper proof locking sign/panel standoffs are durable, solid  and provide an excellent way to secure the sign and display panels in place. They are supplied in a standard two-part or three-part fitting configuration for easy installation. Fittings are made of high-grade solid brass alloy UNS C3604/CZ121 (CuZN39Pb3) with a standard satin chrome finish and stainless steel SS201/SS304 with a satin brushed finish. Other custom finishes such as clear or color anodized, polished chrome, brushed (warm) nickel, or polished stainless steel are available upon request. All metal components come with a 12-months warranty.

Tamper proof standoff  components come in few traditional finishes such as satin anodized, satin nickel/chrome, and natural stainless steel. These are most popular finishes and are always ready available in stock for immediate purchase. Other custom finishes such as color anodized, polished chrome, brushed warm nickel, polished stainless steel, or 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.
