Our stainless steel spacer with a 13mm diameter is an appropriate fit for the installation of small to medium signs and plates to all even surfaces. The little wall distance of just 13mm makes this spacer appropriate to use for door signs made of acrylic glass in the office. However, the delicate signboard is also suitable to use for pictures which were directly printed onto acrylic glass or aluminium composite plates. It should be taken into account, though, that the minimum strength of the plates should be 3mm and should not be higher than 10mm. The bearing weight of the spacers is ca. 10kg und varies depending on the stability of the surface onto which the signs are being attached to. For larger signs the carrying capacity can be increased by using several spacers at once. Alternatively, we offer other Spacers in larger models with higher carrying capacityin our online shop.
Like all our spacers of stainless steel, also our smaller mounting supports were produced as a solid construction made of V2A stainless steel and not of a pressed brass or aluminium substance with stainless steel coverage, as they are mostly offered. This way, our spacers undoubtedly can be used for the installation of signs on outdoor walls, for the installation of smaller advertisement boards or company signs.
NOTE: To fix the stainless steel cap with the grub screw and secure it against theft you need a hexagonal key with a size of 2mm. This tool is not included in the delivery.

Our stainless steel spacers are suitable for mounting plates and sign up to a maximum thickness of 10mm. To assemble the panels, they must be pre-drilled at the appropriate points. We recommend a diameter of at least 8mm to a maximum of 10mm for the holes in the plate. The larger bore of up to 10mm ensures a little more leeway when installing the spacer sleeves. With hole bores of more than 10mm, there is a risk that the hole is no longer completely covered by the cover cap.
The number of stainless steel spacers required varies depending on the size and thickness of the signs. We recommend a distance of about half a meter for sufficient load-bearing capacity and stability.
TIP: When drilling holes, ensure that there is sufficient clearance from the edge of the plate used to prevent the holes from breaking out during assembly or due to impact.
In the following step, determine the desired position of the sign. To do this, transfer the holes in the plate by marking them on a flat surface and fasten the spacer sleeves with suitable screws. Then the caps of the spacers are inserted through the plate into the spacer sleeves and fixed with the small grub screw with an allen key.
NOTE: Screws with a screw head diameter of maximum 7,5mm and a thread diameter of maximum 4,5 mm can be used to mount the spacer sleeves. We recommend using the common countersunk-head screws in the size 4,0 x 40mm.
