Thank you for your purchase of the FlipUpTM frame. Changing a poster or any graphics will be fast, easy and convenient for you. The frame’s miters have been cut to fit either a thin poster or a thicker mounted graphic and this is known by the person who placed the order for the frames from the factory. Using a graphic thicker or thinner than that for which the frame was made may cause the miters to bind or have gaps. This is only an appearance matter. The frame works great just the same. The graphic holding size of the frame may be indicated on a sticker when you flip up the frame edges.

If provided: Clear Plastic Overlay (may be rolled up if frame was sent un-assembled) 1. CAREFULLY unroll overlay so you don’t damage or dent it 2. Remove the protective masking from both sides of clear window overlay BACKER sheet (if provided; backer is not necessary in most cases and is an option only) This may be a black or white plastic sheet OR it may be a second clear overlay sheet which you can use as a backer. For use as a backer, leave on the protective masking and you’ll have a second clear overlay to switch out with the first one in the event it gets scratched, bent or dirty.

For Mounting the FlipUpTM frame to your wall:

After assembling frame you must mount it by screwing to a flat wall. Whether your frame has a backer or not, it must be mounted tight to your wall so that the wall acts as the backing support for the frame. Use drywall anchors and No. 6 screws; they may have been included with your frame. You can also purchase these at your local hardware store. Use a bubble level before screwing to wall so that frame is mounted straight. If you’re mounting the frame to a bumpy or rough wall such as brick or stucco, you’ll need a backer if you’ll be displaying thinner graphic materials, such as, poster paper if one has not been enclosed here. Otherwise you don’t need the backer if mounting on a flat wall, or are displaying graphics printed on thicker material, such as 10 mils (.10”) or thicker.

Use dual corners for this frame

Make sure to use the back plate for a strong corner joint when assembling the 4 frame sides.

Back Plate “Up” side for the back plate either has a “B” stamped on its face, or if no “B”, then “made in USA AMS” side is the “Up” side.

Option 3a Blockertm screw (for Slide-Intm frame only) Super fast insert changes, no frame parts to remove. Blocker screw to prevent theft of insert. This is simply a center mounted security screw (or can be a regular or headless screw) in the slide-in portion of the frame. Blocks the insert from being "slid out." Blocker screw prevents insert from being "slid out" Wall

Option 1 "Screw down Option" - patent pending (for FlipUptm frame only) Screw down option so all 4 edges of frame are tightened down onto insert to prevent theft or wind blow out. Also great for use on moving vehicles since you can use less expensive, thinner inserts, and the insert won't "rattle" inside the frame. Accommodates inserts up to .270" thick. Use security screws, or can use regular screws, your choice.

For model FF-ST finger open style or FF-RPround security profile - standard width or wide profiles

Option 3c Removable frame edge (for Slide-Intm frame only) Must remove frame edge to load or remove inserts. 2 front mounted security screws (also we can provide headed or headless screws that can be opened with common tools)

Slide-In frame - hidden open edge TM

?

fast insert changes, no frame parts to remove.

Slide-InTM frames can accept insert material up to .250" thick. Each edge of your graphic/insert is covered by 3/8" ~ .375" of frame front face edges.

Your insert slides in through hidden open slot. Hidden slot can be on top or on side of frame. If screwing frame to wall, maximum thickness of all insert materials is 3/16" or .1875", because the protruding screw heads on the inside cavity of the frame take away from some of the insert space.

May not have holes. Depends on frame size and how mounted. Hole Positions Mounting Flanges for screwing to wall, or we can add wire, hangers, etc. For wall mounting, use the correct anchor for either drywall or concrete and a No.6 screw. Do Not use larger than a No. 6 screw because the head of screw will be "too high/big" and will interfere with sliding in the backer and graphic for the frame.

Frame can be mounted to wall by screwing to wall (most secure method) or by adhering to wall with double sided tape.

Use a round or pan head screw. Do not use a flat head "countersink" screw because the protruding edges of head may snag the backer or graphic as you slide it in.

Read below only if you'll be applying BLACK Slide-InTM frame to wall with double-sided tape: If applying BLACK powder coated frame to wall with a quality high tack double-sided foam adhesive, you MUST clean back flanges very thoroughly with rubbing or denatured alcohol. Or also, for better adhesion, scuff up area where you will place double sided tape by roughing up with fine sandpaper, then clean with alcohol. You must do this for the black only so that the double-sided tape won't fall off frame, for BLACK frames only.

The corners for the bottom of frame should be screwed into the 2nd / deeper channel of frame side for best results

Bottom of frame

Make sure to use both tapped corner and backplate when assembling frame. The backplate is stamped with “A face.” This “A face” faces the backside of the “tapped corner.”

Tapped corner Top or graphic loading side Install the metal corners into the 2nd / deeper channel for the side of frame where your graphic slides into. This leaves the "hidden" open gap where your graphic will slide into.

Most popular is by “Graphic Size” –that is, the frame is made to hold your particular size graphic. OD Size and Live Area are typically used if you’re printing your own graphics. If you order this way, you must print/trim your graphic so that it matches the Graphic Size shown for the OD Size or Live Area you’ve chosen. The on-line quoting system will show ALL 3 measurements, regardless of how you order the frames. So, make sure the other measurements are acceptable to you before you place order, or contact us.

Measuring methods for frames:

You can order your frames by one of the 3 methods below. You can order by whatever dimension or measuring method is most important to your project.

Graphic Thickness

We need to know the approx. thickness of graphic materials going into the frame. Thus, we need to know whether you’re using a thin poster, or a thicker mounted graphic up to .250” maximum. We then cut the frames to best fit your graphic thickness so that the frame sides close down on your graphic as nicely as possible, to avoid big gaps at the miters.

Wall Mount Instructions:

The enclosed wall mount anchors can be used to mount your frames on drywall, plaster, concrete, solid block, and brick. 1. Using a bubble level, make sure frame is level on wall. With marker, mark a minimum of two holes on each side of frame for your screw locations.

2. Drill a pilot hole with 3/16” diameter drill bit; insert and gently hammer in plastic anchors into holes. 3. Place frame on wall over hole mounts and screw in.

Overlays and Backers

Manufactured by: Alpina Manufacturing LLC Tel: 1-800-915-2828 Fax: 1-800-217-9431

e-mail: sales@fastchangeframes.com www.fastchangeframes.com

Maximum size available for overlays and backers are 48” x 72”

Overlay

Backer

Overlays = Protect and enhance the beauty of your graphic. Clear plastic protective overlay windows are approx. 20

mils/ .020" thick or 40 mils thick for larger frames. Overlays are PETG plastic and are flexible, super clear high grade plastic that will not crack and are ideal for use in these frames. You can also use your own acrylic style "overlay" if you wish. Backers = Black styrene plastic, 40 mil / .040" thick, for a very thin profile frame. Backers are.125” thick for Slide-In frames. Other backer options available.

For FlipUp frames

The overlay windows will protect your graphic and enhance its appearance. But, the overlays and backers are separately priced options and are not mandatory for the frame. The FlipUp frame grips your graphic on all 4 edges and the wall acts as the "backer" -since the graphic lies in the frame cavity -flat against the wall. But it's your choice to have a backer, as it may help smooth out a thin poster graphic, or if you're mounting frame to an uneven surface. Thicker mounted graphics don't need a backer. An option is to purchase 2 overlays for a frame. 1 would act as the "backer" and then can be switched out with the front overlay when it gets damaged or worn. For larger frames, the overlay and backer are sent rolled up. They quickly flatten out once placed in the frame.

For Slide-In frames

Typically, you'll need an overlay and backer for this frame. The poster graphic is "sandwiched" between the overlay and backer and then "slid" into the frame. You will need the overlay and backer to retain the poster in the frame, since this frame does not “grip” the poster on all 4 sides as the FlipUp frame does. If using a thicker-rigid-mounted graphic, you don't need the overlay and backer, unless you want the overlay to protect and/or enhance the image.

Slide-In Backers = Typically 3mm / .125" thick corrugated black plastic. Frames are usually sent assembled when 22" x 28" and smaller, and un-assembled when larger. Frame assembly is fast and easy, instructions and corner hardware are included, takes a few minutes. For larger un-assembled frames, if you purchase the overlay and backer, they would be sent "rolled up" in a box. After the frame is assembled, the un-rolled backer/overlay is installed and will quickly flatten out.. COPYRIGHT 2006 PATENTS AND TRADEMARKS STRICTLY ENFORCED
