Fixing methods

Fast-fix PVC Track Mount System: Complete with quick-release, quarter-turn Twistlock fasteners which slide within the track to ensure optimum tensioning of the installed screen. Enables rapid installation and suitable for any size of screen. Also available in aluminium for arduous applications.



Direct fix: Direct fix to the equipment using self-tapping screws with bonded washers. (Screens for this method of fixing are fitted with circular grommets).




Twistlock mounting: Quick-release, quarter-turn Twistlock fasteners screwed directly to the equipment. (Screens for Twistlock mounting are fitted with corresponding oval grommets).




No-screw Peel & Stick Twistlock fastener: Featuring ultra-high strength, fast-curing 3M structural adhesive backing for permanent bond. (Can also be screwed if desired).




Cable ties: For quick, temporary or semi-permanent installation of ECEX Air Intake Screens.




Magna-Track™ Magnetic Track Mount System: Eliminates the use of screws and speeds installation. Using high-energy magnets, PVC or aluminium track and track connectors, the Magna-Track™ system allows ECEX Air Intake Screens to be mounted in hard-to-reach locations and in areas where there is concern that screw fastening could damage internal components.

Depending upon the size of the screens, additional magnetic connectors are added at required intervals (typically at max. 1200mm centres) along the track. Mounts flush to equipment, preventing air by-pass.

Magna-Track utilises our regular quick-release quarter-turn Twistlock fasteners to secure screen to frame for a strong, rigid assembly with optimum tension of the screen.
