Piping rail for attaching awning

A solution was needed to easily attach an awning with a 2 meter long piping rail to the roof of a transporter without drilling or gluing – Piping rail for attaching awning.

Rail for attaching awing:

He drilled holes in the piping rail in order to screw the neodymium bars into them. The rubber seal was attached to the opposite side of the welt rail. This protects the paintwork of the van from possible damage.

Piping rail for attaching awning

Our customer succeeded in his project quickly and easily. A reliable attachment option for the awning on his transporter was created in no time at all.

Optimal use of the adhesive force by installing the neodymium magnet in an elongated U-profile.
With a length of only 80 mm and a height of 5 mm, you get a small magnet system with an adhesive force of approx. 24 kg.
The nickel-plated U-profile protects the strong NdFeB magnet from damage and increases / bundles the adhesive force on one side.
This means that this flat bar magnet is only magnetic on the open side with the countersunk holes!
On the back, the magnet is therefore non-magnetic and has no adhesive force.
The neodymium flat strip only rests with the two U-legs on the metallic adhesive base and thus prevents damage to the glued-in magnet.
With the existing hole with countersink, you can securely attach this holding magnet with an M3 countersunk screw.
Due to the elongated shape, these magnets can also be easily sunk into grooves.
The safer and robust fastening option for industry, workshops, mechanical engineering, trade fair construction and hobby rooms.
