Replacement covers for snap frames
Replacement covers for snap frames are also known as poster cover sheets. These high quality plastic sheets are suitable for most types of snap frames as replacement covers. They are suitable for regular snap frame pavement signs which do not have a waterproof gasket (most A-boards and budget waterbase signs).
Replacement covers for waterproof snapframes
When waterproof snap frames require replacement covers it is important to select the correct size.
These PET covers are larger than than corresponding regular snap frame covers and will fit our waterproof snap frames and waterbase pavement signs as specified below. An oversize snap frame cover is required to span the rubber gasket which surrounds the poster aperture in a waterproof snap frame in order to achieve a good seal.
When purchasing to fit other manufacturers' snap frames please check measurements carefully as we cannot advise on compatibility with other makes, nor is it economical to accept returns for wrongly ordered poster covers. Please refer to the exact dimensions of the covers in mm stated below.
Plastic Chalk card inserts
These are low cost plastic write-on inserts which can be used with snap frames or slot-in style poster frames. They are suitable for writing on with liquid chalk pens such as Posterman (outdoors) or Illumigraph (indoors). They can be re-used a number of times - see details.
Quality economical laminating pouches - bulk packs 100
Retail quality cyrstal clear 200 & 250 micron thick laminating pouches for outdoor use or indoors. To be used with any heated roller or hot plate type laminator (any common type of office laminator rated for 250 micron pouches will do).
Replacement backing sheets for slim frames
These fluted plastic Correx sheets are intended for our slot-in poster frames and are only stocked in sizes A5, A3 and A3 at 3 mm thick and sold in packs of 10.
A4 correx sheets are occasionally purchased as envelope stiffeners, but we do not warrant them for this application. Regrettably we do not supply larger or heavier gauge correx sheets.
Plastic Slim frames and Woodline frames are supplied with Correx backing sheets. You only need purchase these as spares or replacements if required. The 3mm thick Correx or Corrieboard is quite light duty as it is only recommended as a stiffener inside a top entry frame.
Plastic poster protectors for slim frames
Cover sheets to protect your print or sign from finger marks and dust, also know as acetate sheets.
Permanent fixing of frames to suitable surfaces
Sticking up frames rather than screwing is handy when you don't have a drill available.
Double-sided adhesive tape is supplied in convenient rolls for fixing snap frames and similar items directly to a wall or door without using nails or screws. Use of adhesive foam tape is quick and easy but should be limited to suitable smooth clean surfaces.
Each 10m long roll is 12mm wide (about 1/2 inch wide) and is supplied with a peel off waxed paper liner. The foam core is under 2mm thick with a high-grab adhesive on each side. The function is similar to popular Sticky Fixers. One side of the tape is applied to the back of the frame - either all the way round the perimeter or in strips. The release liner is then removed from the wall-side of the tape and the frame is firmly applied using all-round pressure to achieve a good bond.
Special lever tool for snap frames
Secure snap frames do not have a finger groove to open the frame, making the contents more secure.
This lever tool is needed to allow secure snap frames to be opened easily so the contents can be updated i.e. by inserting a new poster or notice.
How many lever tools should you order?
Customers ordering a quantity of secure snap frames do not generally require multiple lever tools. Normally one is required for each person authorised to update the contents - with a few spare lever tools in case any get lost.
The secure type of snap frame which requires this special opening tool can also be referred to as a security snap frame - as it offers an enhanced level of security compared to a normal snap frame.
