Abstract (en)

The support casing is preferably fabricated from extruded aluminum as a four-sided frame. Each side is of unitary construction and is formed as a hollow box- like body with a nose part (44) and a projecting arm for attaching a cover plate (68). Each side has a longitudinal groove for receiving sliding blocks (206). Coiled tension springs (210) are connected to each block and, aided by prespacers, are hooked through spaced eyelets (226) in the flexible substrate (224). An independent claim is also included for a method of fastening a substrate under tension to a support.

A fastening arrangement comprises a support (10,68) for a substrate (224,236) and resilient coupling means (204,212) connectable, in use, between the support and the substrate (224,236) to fasten the substrate (224,236) under tension to the support, in use. The coupling means each comprise a resilient tension spring (210,220) attached at one end to a block (206,216), with its other end adapted to engage a tension bar (240) through a hole (218,242) in the substrate, the blocks being slidable in a groove in each side of the support. <IMAGE>
