Adjustabail is made in three sizes – Mini, Midi and Maxi. Each of these are designed to work for different sizes and weights of panel and cast glass. Previously your only option has been metal supports or stand-offs – very visible and often requiring drilling holes through the panel – a risky and expensive process.
Adjustabail is a very cost effective solution for hanging your glass. You only need one Adjustabail per piece of work. The slugs, brackets and fixings are supplied both as a kit and separately so you can give a bracket to your customer. The gallery that exhibits your work can use a bracket to display your panels and keep spares for their clients. The Midi and Maxi are also perfect for hanging ceramic wall art!
We recommend Loctite Hysol 3430, Loctite Hysol E-05CL or Hxtal NYL-1 adhesive. All are crystal clear and have been extensively tested by glass artists across the world. It is very important to follow the adhesive instructions correctly, especially cleaning and cure time, to achieve maximum bond strength.
A 6mm thick glass panel weighs approximately 0.4oz per square inch. Example: A 12″ x 16″ panel would weigh 12 x 16 x 0.4 = 76.8oz = 4.8 pounds. You would use a Midi Adjustabail for this panel.
A 6mm thick glass panel weighs approximately 1.75 grams per square centimetre. Example: A 30cm x 40cm panel would weigh 30 x 40 x 1.75 = 2100gm = 2.1kg. You would use a Midi Adjustabail for this panel.
