Other connectors Series 8

The series 8 profile family has more connecting options than any of the other series. Angle brackets are versatile connectors. They can add considerable strength to the joint. Angles require no machining. Some Valuframe angles have keys mounded on the contact surfaces, these are used to locate the angle in the profile slot and ensure alignment. These keys can be snapped off if not required. There are a variety of types available, some with plastic covers to hide the fastenings and enhance the aesthetic look of your frame. Parallel plates are simple accessories to connect profiles.
