Mitre-Fastening Sets are suitable for connecting two profiles at an angle. They are used primarily when constructing frame elements and panel edging. The profile grooves facing each other inside the frame remain unobstructed so they can be used for holding panel elements.
The position of the clamping pins at right angles to the cut profile edge generates particularly high clamping forces on the fastening elements. The clamping screws are accessed from the side of the profile frame.
Mitre-Fastening Sets 8 are available for two different forms of profile connection:
– Mitre-Fastening Set 8
A mitred Profile 8 (at any angle γ between 30° and 90°) is screwed to the side of a Profile 8.
– Mitre-Butt-Fastening Set 8
Two mitred profiles (each with an identical angle γ between 30° and 90°) are connected together. This gives a possible angle between the profiles of (2γ) between 60° and 180°.
Your item dealer can provide the required mitre cuts and profile processing as a service.
Note: Despite the optimized design, the flow of forces across the inclined contact faces of the profiles is such that only part of the pretension of the screw connection is utilized. Mitre connections therefore have a lower load bearing capacity than other, right-angled profile connections (Standard-Fastening,
Universal-Fastening or Automatic-Fastening Set).
Mitre-Fastening Sets should therefore not be used for constructing basic frames and safety-related parts that are subject to high loads.
