After a lot of research and vigorous testing, Brownings are proud to introduce TexGrip to the market.
TexGrip is the latest addition to our very own textile profiles. Although, unlike the rest of our aluminium profiles this one is made of rubber!
Soft Signage is growing at a rapid rate as commercial businesses look to it as their “go to solution” in retail environments. But it has commonly had one hindrance, the textile skins need to be stitched perfectly to fit the frames. Otherwise the result is a skin that doesn’t stretch enough to cover the frame, or a skin that’s oversized and sags.
TexGrip offers a universal solution to this common problem, as it replaces the need to stitch the keder onto the prints. TexGrip is a rubber profile which slides into the recessed channel on the frame. TexGrip fits perfectly into our TexSign profiles and many other textile systems. Although we would recommend testing or asking our advice before first application. Once the TexGrip is in the frame, push your skin in and over the profile which will then grip and hold the skin. The skin can be pushed in using a pizza slicer and then if there’s any excess skin simply trim it back. On larger frames we would recommend stitching keder to two sides. The top and the left or right-hand side. This will then help your fitters get the skin on the frame straight. The skin can then be pulled tight and the TexGrip will ensure you have a perfectly tensioned skin. Carrying TexGrip in your fitter’s van is your get out of jail free card. If the skin doesn’t fit TexGrip might just save the day. TexGrip is now stocked at Brownings.
