Valuframe - The Economy Aluminium Profile System.
Panel Strips and Seals.
The most common way to secure panels into the frame with Valuframe is to use panel strips and seals. From the
choice of the plastic panel strip and the rubber panel seal, most customers go for the first option. Each profile
series has it's own panel strips and seals because the aluminium profile slots are different widths. It's not
recommended to fit panel materials into the slot without these seals because they reduce vibration damage
and noise, make a snug fit for the panel material and also prevent panel materials from coming into
contact with the aluminium extrusion slot wall. Also, by reducing the width of the slot, you will normally
reduce the cost of the panel material.
The most popular reducing method uses the plastic panel strips. These strips not
only reduce the slot width, but they can also be reversed to close off the slot if required. Sold
in 2M lengths, a variety of colours are available.
The rubber sealing strips are less popular but no less efficient. They are
slightly cheaper to buy than the panel strips and come in a continuous length.
Panel strips Series 5
The 2m long slot filler strip or channel reducer reduces width of the slot from 5mm to between 1-3mm. It’s used
for inserting panel materials into the slot but it also doubles as a cover for the slot when reversed.
Panel strips Series 6
This 2m long slot filler strip or channel reducer reduces width of the slot from 6mm to between 2-3.5mm.
Panel strips Series 8 & 8X30
This 2M long slot filler strip or channel reducer reduces width of the slot from 8mm to between 4-6mm. In series
8 there are a few more colours of strip available, as sometimes these colours are used to indicate a safety guard,
a removable panel or as a branding indicator.
Panel seal strips Series 8 & 8X30
These rubber slot filler seals reduce width of the slot from 8mm to between 2-6mm depending on which one is
used. This material is available in a continuous length up to 100M and is available in black only.
