Commonly called "Top Hat" section because of its raised centre section, this strip is specifically designed for surface fitting. Its low profile and fewer fixing holes per length make it an attractive and lower cost alternative to the traditional inlaid strip design. The wide flanges also allow other fitting methods such as spot welding to be utilised, making the design suitable for installation within steel cabinets.
Note: When using surface mounted raised bookcase strip, shelves must be a minimum of 7mm shorter overall than the internal width of the cabinet.
The raised bookcase strip (7472) is capable of taking two different styles of shelf support studs. The raised studs (7473), or the double raised studs (7474).
Note: When the (7473) single stud is used, wooden shelves can be secured in place by adding fixing screws to the underside of each shelf. The most suitable screws for this are the No.6 round head or No.4 countersunk head screws.
