Product description


With GN 56 retaining magnets, doors, covers or also tools and accessories can easily be attached to profile systems.

The side-mounted plastic spring elements enable the retaining magnet to be inserted into a profile slot at any position. Once fixed, the magnet retains in the slot with a multiple of its nominal magnetic force. With a suitable screwdriver, the retaining magnets can be lifted out of the slot via the recesses on the front side.

Slightly tightening the set screw against the slot base prevents the retaining magnet from moving in the direction of the slot. If necessary, additional protection against sideways displacement can be achieved by using GN 506 roll-in T-slot nuts.
