UK manufacturer Gripple has introduced “the industry’s first translucent hanger solution for the discreet suspension of retail signage, decorations, acoustic panels and lighting”.
InvisiGrip’s patented mechanism uses a clear filament to create a ‘floating’ effect and comes in ready-to-use kits, eliminating the need for steel wire and metal hooks. The system has a 5kg safe working load per suspension point and can loop through or around most objects.
A simple twist release unlocks both channels at once and easy one-step adjustment which significantly reduces the time required to work at height and so has major safety advantages.
Product manager Will Anderson explains: “This latest innovation was born from a customer request for a clear version of one of our existing suspension products to improve the aesthetics of their displays and signage. We developed a totally new product that combines the qualities needed for discreet signage that doesn’t detract attention from decorative signs and lighting but retains the efficacy of a strong and trustworthy suspension system.
“As time and labour saving is at the forefront of everything we do, we set about developing a solution which uses a strong translucent filament that allows light and colour to travel through the device and uses a gripping mechanism which doesn’t compromise the filament and retains security and longevity. This product fills a need for versatile, simple to use, easily adjustable, quick change solutions needed in the fast-paced retail, leisure and office environment where displays are frequently changed and we believe this is the first of its kind on the market.”
