The window frame snapper is a stainless steel Window Frame fixing device with angled serrated tongues, which is fixed to the window frame itself during manufacture. It can be used with PVCu, timber or aluminium window frames. Since drilling through the window frame or into the masonry aperture is not necessary the window is installed fully glazed. Snapper will bite into all building materials.
Located on the window frame, the serrated tongues allow the window frame to be pushed into place, but act as a reversed anchor, and resist movement in the opposite direction. Fitting the window literally takes 5 minutes. Seal in the normal way and on to the next installation.
Snapper is a double spring and will allow expansion and contraction without releasing its grip on the surrounding material. Snapper will adjust to any window frame-to-masonry tolerance from 1mm to 15mm.
Made of austenitic stainless spring steel to BS5770 compression and hard rolled with a tensile strength of approximately 80 tonnes per sq. inch. Snapper will survive a lateral pull on a window frame of over 5 tonnes.
