Special features:
item products are based on different modular dimensions and their associated system grooves. Profiles from Lines 5, 6, 8, 10 and 12 each need corresponding sizes of fasteners. The profiles in Line X feature a Line 8 system groove but have a particularly flat surface with minimum curve radii that make them ideal for building sealed constructions.
Components that are RoHS-compliant contain no dangerous substances such as lead or cadmium. EC Directive 2002/95/EC (RoHS 1) restricts the use of certain substances in electronic devices and components. These include batteries, etc.
All substances are registered according to the REACH regulation. REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals) ensures that users have accurate information on the type and properties of operating materials, lubricants, etc. that they might come into contact with.

Clamp-Profile System E is ideal for easy and fast construction of frame elements for enclosure and guard systems. A stainless steel strip is inserted into the weight- optimised profiles to protect the various panel elements from becoming dislodged from the groove.
Securing and clamping the panels increases the overall strength of the frame elements.
Profiles are connected using Clamp-Profile Fasteners.
The frame elements of Clamp Profiles E are hung using Clamp-Profile Hangers E, which engage in the Clamp-Profile Fastener.
In conjunction with the Clamp-Profile Hinge E (Section 3.4 Movable Fastening Elements) the frame element can easily be used as a swing door.
Clamp Profiles E:
An inserted spring steel strip presses along the length of the clamped panel element.
With panels made from materials with little surface hardness (for example Polycarbonate, Corrugated Mesh Al) this results in a particularly high inherent strength.
The clamping groove in the profiles of Protective Enclosure System E corresponds to the groove of Clamp Profiles 8 40x40 E (see Comprehensive Catalogue Section 3.3.3 Fastening Panels in Special Grooves).
The new Clamp Profiles can therefore be combined at will with Clamp Profiles 8 40x40 E.
Clamp Profiles for Protective Enclosure System E are a particularly cost-effective solution for constructing stable frames for panel elements. Panels slid into the deep clamping grooves in the profiles are held securely.
Clamp Profiles 8 80x40-180° light and W80x80x40 light combine the function of the Stand Profile and Clamp Profile. They are supplied in optimum cut-off special lengths of (4800 mm) for Stand Profiles.
Solid panels of thickness 4 to 6 mm (e.g. Polycarbonate 4 mm) are recommended for the panel elements. The panels are secured by means of Lip Seals 8 which ensure that they fit securely in the groove.

t = 23 mm
Installation sequence:
1. Insert the Clamp-Profile Strip into the spring cavity in the Clamp Profile.
2. Press in the panel element.
Producing frames:
1. Cut-off of panel element = inside frame dimension + 2 x insertion depth (t).
2. Fit the Clamp-Profile Fastener loosely onto the upright frame profiles.
3. Place the horizontal frame profiles centrally onto the panel element so as to ensure initial gentle clamping by the steel strip. The panel element must not yet be pressed all the way into the groove.
4. Assemble the frame and tighten the bolts. The panel element will be pressed into the groove by varying amounts (depending on the tolerance position) when the bolts are tightened.
