Channel Magnet Features
These rectangular base magnets channel great holding strength onto one large surface. A strong ceramic or rubber magnet is set into a plated steel channel with holes, loops or threaded nuts for mounting.
• Door latches
• Vehicle license plate holders
• Blueprint holders
• Sign and banner holders Holding and pull strength
Channel assemblies are up to 32 times stronger than ceramic magnets by themselves. Pull strength is tested on a flat steel plate 3/8 inch thick. The pull may vary depending on the surface it is attracted to, for example, if the steel is less than 3/8 inch thick, coated, rough or rusty. We recommend that you obtain a sample to test and confirm the actual pull / holding capability when used in your application.
Adams can produce rectangular magnet assemblies in just about any color. We can package them in individual bags or other the packaging types you specify.
Design and handling considerations
Most of our magnetic assemblies are made with ceramic magnets, which are brittle and may break if dropped or if riveting is used in their application. Please use caution when handling channel magnets assemblies, their exceptional magnetic force may cause them to attract to metal (or to each other) so strongly that putting fingers in their path could prove painful.
