Metrix Group Isolating Grommet – Dissimilar Metal Protection

DISSIMILAR
METAL PROTECTION

Galvanic corrosion is caused when two differing metals come in contact with one another in the presence of an electrolyte. This results in weakening the structural integrity of the panel/framing and shortening the life of the coating. This is overcome with Metrix insolating grommets or washers.

NOTE: if dissimilar metal protection is not provided this will void the powder coat manufacturer’s warranty.

Sound Isolation of structural borne vibrations

SOUND
ISOLATION

Panels bolted to a frame will transfer vibrational frequencies directly through the panel framing and any attached structure. Metrix Group insolating grommets fitted
between screens and framing also assist with isolating and absorbing structure-borne
vibrations.

Thermal expansion of metal train tracks causes buckling

THERMAL
EXPANSION

All panels need allowance for thermal expansion and traction. Failure to do so can result in panels buckling and installations shearing or failing. Metrix Group insolating grommets
fitted between screens and framing provide sufficient expansion and contraction to
alleviate this problem.
