Signfix Stainless Steel Channel Clips
When used in conjunction with Signfix extruded aluminium channels, Signfix clips enable signs to be fitted to posts of every shape and size. Signs manufactured using Signfix products offer greater on-site flexibility as post centres are not critical and signs can be easily offset.
Installations fabricated and erected to Signfix specifications comply with the requirements of BS En 12899-1.
Stainless steel is a tough material and is particularly beneficial where impact resistance is important
Signfix clips are manufactured from AISI 304 stainless steel alloy. All the nuts, bolts and washers are also all made from stainless steel. The stainless steel fittings have been subjected to ASTM B117 salt-spray testing for 500 hours with no significant corrosion.
Extensive service life and laboratory testing has proven the benefits of stainless steel as a clip material because it is not prone to bi-metallic corrosion and because of its superior mechanical properties (see table below:)
Although available from stock in stainless steel finish, Signfix clips may be powder coated to blend in with particular colour schemes, and to reduce visual impact in environmentally sensitive areas.
IMPORTANT TECHNICAL INFORMATION
Bolt Selection Guide
Signfix clips are universal and will fit any of our range of Channel Section Extrusions. To optimise the fit and to resist any tendency to twist or 'pull through' the channel under high torque, select the appropriate bolt fitting for the type of channel being used.

Signfix bolts have an ultimate tensile strength of 70N/mm2 and should be tightened up to the adequate torque load needed for the application.
