Suspended cable display systems
Our cable anchor fixings and fittings used to hold the acrylic pockets are unique to Green Magic, the company behind this sign-holders website. They have been specially designed by us to offer aesthetic styling combined with unusual versatility and rapid installation.
Wire display system using acrylic pockets and special fittings
Cable display is just another name for a wire display system. The cables or wires are made of strong slender steel to provide an unobtrusive support. The wires are supplied with a cylindrical termination bonded onto the top of the cable. This vertical support wire is installed securely in the upper ceiling or wall fixing. The fitting incorporates a spring for tensioning.
The lower anchor fitting incorporates a gripper mechanism - the wire simply needs to be inserted and pulled tight. The wire is grabbed automatically. This is a superior solution to most competitor systems in which a separate lower termination has to be fitted by the installer at exactly the right height for the room in question. This can be very fiddly and is unecessary in our cable display systems.
The acrylic pockets supplied with our kits are then fitted between the wires using small silver metal fittings which are attached to the perspex pockets using little grub screws tightened by means of an allen key (hexagonal wrench). The height is also adjusted with a secondary grub screw which locks onto the cable. However in our DeLuxe cable display kits the secondary grub screws are replaced by a self locking gripper mechanism concealed within the fittings. The only part which shows is the push button for easy height adjustment where the cable enters at the top of the fitting.
All cable fittings have a matte silver finish which gives a discreet contemporary look.
How to install cable display systems
Cable displays need to be fixed securely and setting out must be done accurately. Often installation is regarded as a job for the professional or keen DIYer. A reasonable level of practical skill is required. The tools needed are an electric drill, screwdriver, tape measure, good wire cutters and preferably a spirit level. More detailed assembly instructions are provided adjacent to the individual products in this section.
As the cables need to be tensioned the top fixing cannot normally be attached to a suspended ceiling - in this case the wire must pass through and attach to the structural ceiling above the false ceiling. In all cases the responsibility of anchoring the cables rests with the installer as we cannot determine what type of wall or ceiling will exist at your premises.
