SignLink Split Batten Vs MDF Split Batten Overview

LB Model

SignLink Split Battens are the ideal fixing mechanism for mounting a wide


variety of panels, fixtures, signs and displays to walls. They are self mating sections which mount on the wall and across the back of the item being installed. The blades of each section interlock together forming a very secure "wedge" connection once the item is mounted in place. They enable

The HD 1 and HD 2 mount 8.5mm off the wall. Most MDF models are in the order of 16mm off the wall. If there is a significant Silicon groove / Locking hole for 5mm dia rod

The LB and HD 2 models have been designed with internal shoulders which results in both battens locking firmly into place, preventing any further movement down the wall once they are under load. MDF battens do not offer this protection. The split batten offers the major advantage of being able to readily remove heavy items without causing any wall damage. For example, cabinets with electrical appliances inside where the cabinet needs to be removed to allow access to electrical wiring in the wall behind. The cabinet can simply be unhooked and removed. If the cabinet was mounted with mechanical fixings and adhesives then the wall would be damaged. The HD1 and

Pin Boards/White Boards

HD2 models offer the option of being permanently fixed by means of a silicon groove or alternatively they can be lockable by inserting a 5mm Dia threaded rod which is removed with either a punch or magnet
