QIKFIT Thick Panel Frames
The Qikfit Thick Panel Frame has been designed to accommodate the Elsafe Qikfit Series in a screen or other surface from 3mm to 14mm thick.
The Thick Panel Frame comprises of three parts; the Frame which is made from Polycarbonate and two Frame Clips which are made from a Nylon 6/6 to allow the clip to spring as required. Please note that the Thick Panel Frame is only available in a QF45 (4 GPO Qikfit) length.
Clips to Frame:
The clip can be easily removed and relocated into two different positions (as per the images below); this is necessary in order to give the Thick Panel Frame the flexibility to be mounted in a panel anywhere from 3mm to 14mm.

Mounting of QF items in Thick Panel Frames:
You will notice that there are three posts that are moulded into the frame at varying distances, these posts are integral to the stability of the Thick Panel Frame. If for example there are 9 x QF5 tiles installed into the Thick Panel Frame (as per below), then every one of those QF5 tiles will have a spring clip pushing outwards on the frame, the posts counteract that outward force and allow all of the QF5 tiles to be installed without any distortion to the straight lines of the Thick Panel Frame. (NB, if all of the posts are removed, this dow not render the Thick Panel Frame unusable for QF5's, it will merely splay the frame out).
Installation of the QF5 Tiles:
Leave posts in Thick Panel Frame and clip QF5's into place as needed.
Installation of QF45 (4GPO Qikfit):
Remove posts and clip in Qikfit.
Installation of QF35 (Qikfit TUF):
Remove posts as needed and clip in Qikfit TUF. Then use 2 x QF5 Blanks or data/AV tiles as needed for remainder.
Installation of QF25 (2GPO Qikfit):
Remove posts as needed and clip in Qikfit.
Power & Data Combined:
It is possible to install data/AV either side of a 2GPO however it will then be necessary to use a hard wired Qikfit (see possible configuration below):
