PBC Linear has revealed that Shadi and Company has selected the Integral V linear guide system to support its Trak-Kit system for providing mobility and versatility for LCD/plasma flat-screens.

Trak-Kit uses ceiling or wall mounting components for suspension and PBC Linear’s Integral V guides for mobility and additional load support.

The guides support the heavy moment loads created by the various sizes of flat-panel monitors and speakers while ensuring smooth and ergonomic movement throughout the space of the room.

The Trak-Kit assembly mounts to the ceiling using a system of brackets and support bars integrated with audio/visual wires for optimal monitor operation.

Once assembled onto a flat-screen monitor, the Trak-Kit system is mounted to a linear guide for mobility along the track and easy-access viewing (up to 50ft/15.25m).

The mounted flat-screen can now glide along the track, rotate 360-deg and in some cases be raised and lowered out of the ceiling.

To support this mobility, the linear guide needed to be durable enough to handle the moment load of the flat-screen and Trak-Kit mount, easily manoeuvred for ergonomic use, and compact for aesthetic and architectural appeal.

Integral V uses hardened steel inserts directly embedded into aluminium structural framing to eliminate fasteners while providing straight (0.002in/0.05mm) and even travel across the track.

PBC Linear worked closely with Shadi and Company to implement Integral V into the Trak-Kit system.

Its Simo precision machining process allowed for reduced components, easier installation and alignment.

Originally, linear guidance for the Trak-Kit was done using complex modular components, requiring several steps in assembly.

The simple, dowel-pin joining Integral V rails and guides helped speed-up Trak-Kit’s production process to meet increased demand for the system.

Available in multiple configurations to meet customer specific needs, Integral V can be adapted as a linear guide into almost any application.

Once installed, Integral V proved to be effective in the ergonomic mobility of the Trak-Kit system.

Able to support high cantilevered loads (static 255N-m/188lbf and dynamic 288N-m/207lbf), Integral V suspended various flat-screens – weighing up to 150lb – for full visibility.

Trak-Kit also used a low-profile, flat plate Integral V carriage to ensure a compact (53mm) design.

The end result was a low-profile, aesthetically pleasing ergonomic system that gave flat-screen viewing free mobility across an interior space.
