One of the most unique elements of the MayTec system is the manner in which profiles are joined. By using this system it means we can provide you with strong, resilient connections that are also adjustable.
See below for a in-depth look at each connector type below:
- add or remove a profile to an existing frame
Depending on your needs, we can supply profiles that are able to be removed entirely without having to disassemble the item that they are attached to. With our standard connectors you can fit the profile, rotate it 90° and then remove it. By the same token, you can also add profiles if you’ve found that you need to strengthen or modify the item. It’s simple and one of our go-to items covering most situations where this kind of connection is required.
-creating external or internal connection points
If you’re mounting items in the 90° location and still want that neat and clean mitred joint, these are the connectors to use. We can place the fastening locations on the outside or the inside of the joint leaving you with a great finish that still works for your project.
-extend profiles end on end
We’re often asked about being able to extend on the 6m standard length that our profiles come in. The answer is a simple one and it works well. With an extension connector we machine as per any other connector, but once joined you now have a seamless joint that is stronger at its connection than the profile itself!
- create a seamless joint through a corner
One of the great finishes easily achievable with the MayTec system is to create mitred corners. Typically used on items such as doors, or where a neat and clean finish is required, we use these connectors. Available in all sizes of the profiles, it means however your project is designed, you can add another dimension to the final design with these connectors.
-for potential equalisation connection points
Rather than this being a stand-alone connector, our ESD connectors are available in a range of sizes and types. This means that if your project needs to be compliant, we have you covered. They work by piercing the anodising of the profile and allowing the electrical charge to move through the frame. From the frame there are a handful of ways of getting it out to your earthing point and your product is then safe.
-providing a variable angle joint
Whether it’s an angled brace or you just need for your project to have profiles mounted between 0° and 45°. Being able to maintain the option of sliding the connector to the right location means that your project looks and performs exactly how you expected it to.
-variable angle joint (over or under)
Depending on how your project is configured, we can provide you with an ‘over or under’ variable joint. This kind of connection is usually fitted where access is required from the one specific direction. Like our other connectors it allows for adjustability without additional machining, holes or damage to the profile.
oblique connectors (adjacent)
Being able to create a joint at 90° from one slot to another is a great feature to have in any kind of connection system. Adding the ability to do this with an additional variable angle means that some unique frame designs can be explored. This kind of connection is a little more tricky to complete properly so if you’re looking to use it make sure you let us know and we can resolve any issues that may arise – before they happen.
-side by side connections
Using a parallel connector allows for a handy solution to a common requirement. Adding a parallel connection means that you can have an item such as a shelf attached to a profile and for it to maintain the flexibility of adjustment without sacrificing strength. There are a variety of ways that this can be done so almost any profile in any orientation can be mounted to another in this manner.
-for more specialised connections
While not as commonly used in our range, we can provide a range of screw type connectors. These might be used where you need to connect through to plates, require a section to be removed or simply need a different kind of flexibility to your connection. We can help you make the right selection on these, just let us know what you need.
