Installing A DeuPair Pocket Frame

It is obvious why these frames are so popular in medical offices.

By Kevin RR Williams

DECOR A DeuPair Frame is one of the best investments a medical office can make, both for its improvement to room decor and to patent education. Available in a variety of styles, each frame comes fully assembled and holds several graphics.

Our best seller is the standard Pocket Frame with 1-inch (black or silver) beveled bezel. Through a concealed opening, contents slide into the top. Gravity holds everything within the wall-mounted frame (like patient charts on an exam room door). The premium Flip Frame with 1.25-inch (10+ colors) smooth bezel also mounts to the wall with four screws. For content exchange, the four hinged spring-loaded edges flip forward to open without the use of tools.

Easy DeuPair Pocket Frame Installation Instructions

Don’t try to hang this like a typical frame with wire and nails. Installation is a cinch with all the hardware included. Essentially, you slide out the contents; mount frame in position with four screws; then reinsert the contents.

Clearance above pocket frames should opimally equal or exceed the height of the frame. If not, you may need to add one more step to installation process: The flexible black corrugated backing can be slit horrizontally halfway through with a knife so that it bends forward at the center. Then insert the backing separately before inserting the graphic with the overlay. (If you cut to far, the backing can be installed in two pieces or even taped after insertion if desired. Its purpose is simply to press graphics against clear overlay to mimize poster bowing.)
