The basic construction of the tile support matrix comprises the assembly of precision die-cast alloy grids within an aluminum extruded bezel section which provides great strength and enables easy mounting of a variety of panel sizes.
Mosaic assemblies of any size may be constructed either within the constraints of any handling limitations, or as sub-sections which, when mounted within an opening, may be joined to provide an overall tiled surface which is flat with invisible joints between the tiles on either side of a joint line.
The grid is manufactured as a 24 x 12 tiles matrix (576mm x 288mm or 22.68" x 11.34"), and the design is such that it may be cut and joined to an adjacent casting at any 24mm (.94")grid intersection. Flat surface alignment of tiles is ensured within a tolerance of less than 0.1mm (.004") in height, and without imposing any limitation on the positioning of control and indication devices or instrumentation.
The grid may be cut at any point to provide an aperture for the mounting of DIN or non-DIN instruments without any significant reduction to the overall structural integrity. Openings within the grid may be closed by inserting and fixing an 'infill' grid section without compromising the appearance or strength of the area. The positioning of any control or indication devices is not affected and no special tools or jigs are necessary to install or uninstall a particular device.
Where necessary, the replacement of a complete grid casting is possible from the front of the display, although font and rear access is advisable to make clean alterations.
The display matrix assembly is general framed within a silver anodized aluminum bezel extrusion, however, it may be finished (on request) to any specified color. Alternatively steel, stainless steel or hardwood trims may also be specified as special order items.
