Products FAQs

  • Q

Typically, 30 lbs per Sq Ft is the standard recommended weight for flat display shelves. The recommended weight capacity is based on a large safety factor and is measured by a shelf deflection of 1/4" when weighted.
  • Q
    What is the material the displays are made of?

  • Q
    Can I use these panels over an open (space) hole to keep pedestrians from falling into the hole?
    A
    No, SPC panels are not engineered to span an open space for pedestrian traffic loads.
  • Q
    What's the difference between grid and solid top?
    A
    Grid top panels have an open grid pattern to allow water, dirt, debris and air-flow to pass through panels. Solid top panels have a closed surface top and do not have the grid pattern.
  • Q
    How big are the grid openings?
    A
    The grid openings vary from 1/2" x 2" to 1" x 2" depending on where they are located on the panel as well as panel size and type.
  • Q
    Can the panels and legs be painted?
    A
    No. Most paints will not successfully bond or adhere to the surface area of our legs.
  • Q
    Can the displays / panels be connected together?
    A
    Yes. Some panels can be fastened with leg connectors and / or butted up to each other. Please consult your sales rep for specifics and ideas for connecting panels together to meet your project requirements.
  • Q
    Do they fade?
    A
    SPC panels have a UV inhibitor added to the plastic during production. Our panels are very durable and most customers report little to no fading, even after years of exposure to sun, wind, rain and snow.
  • Q
    What type of oil should I use and why do I need to use oil?
    A
    SPC provides a lubricant with each order (similar to Windex glass cleaning product). Two-cycle oil can be used sparingly to provide additional lubrication during assembly.
  • Q
    Can I walk on them?
    A
    Panels resting directly on a flat floor surface are stable, however walking on panels as part of a display configuration is not recommended as it will exceed recommended weight capacities.
