PanelTrim DIY Lengths Medium

Our aluminium Medium Panel Trim has a cover face of 35mm (which takes a 3mm or 5mm panel) and is the most popular in the range by far, - making it suitable for all but the smallest or largest of signs.

The kit includes all four sides pre drilled & mitred, the corner cleats set into the side pieces and fixing screws & rawlplugs, so that all you have to do is fix it to the wall.

  • We stock Anodised Silver, and powder coated in black or white
  • Each completed frame requires 4 corner fixings

We manufacture the kit to the size you specify, so:-

  • If you frame size is 1000 x 500mm, then:
  • Your panel should be 30mm less in both directions. 970 x 470mm
  • The viewable size will be 70mm less in both directions. 930 x 430mm

If your sign is less than say 400mm deep or larger if its going inside, you may want to consider our Small Panel Trim which has a slimmer profile.

Equally, if your panel is very deep - or located in a windy situation, you should probably think about our Large Panel Trim framing because it has a cover face of 45mm. 

Medium PanelTrim frames will take either 3mm or 5mm thick panels, such as ACM or PVC Foam.

It is best practice to suspend the panel from the top rail by means of a 'hanger strip' so that the panel will always hang straight & flat.

If you just stand the panel in the bottom rail there is a danger that it may become distorted due to it's own weight, particularly in the summer when the panel can get very hot & lose their rigidity. This sort of problem is more likely when the panel is Acrylic or Foam PVC, but even if your using ACM, its still better to use Hanger Strips because then the bottom of the panel dosn't get stuck in the build up of dirt in the bottom frame, making them easier to get them in & out in the future.

Panel Trim Medium

If your sign Is longer than a single panel, you should use a pair of panel locks to keep the panels together to ensure no gaps appear between the sheets.


  1. Remember that the panel needs to be loose enough to allow it to expand in the summer & contract in the winter without it becoming trapped & then distorted so we suggest that your panel be 30mm less than the overall frame size, and that you notch the corners as shown so as to prevent the panel nipping in the corners.
  2. If your sign is made up of more than one panel you really should 'half lap' the joint and fit anti flex plates and put 'Panel Locks' at the top. This is to keep the panels tight together at all times, which looks better, and also prevents the wind getting behind the panels, which can risk blowouts.
Panel trim - half lat

A run of grease along the hanger strip & on the frame where it touches the panel makes it easier to get in & out in the future.
