Designated vs. Actual Size
“Designated” Hoop Size vs. Actual I.D. Size of Inner Hoop
As is the standard industry practice, Allied GridLock™ embroidery hoops are given “designated” hoop sizes. These may or may not represent the actual inside dimensions of the inner hoop. In some cases the actual inner hoop I.D. may be larger and in other cases smaller.
Part of the information provided with each product listing of Grid-Lock hoops includes the actual inside dimensions of the inner hoop. For example, in the product listing of AGL-2430-SWF-400, the actual I.D. size we have provided is (rounded-off) 24 cm (235 mm) in the Y-direction by (rounded-off) 30 cm (307 mm) in the X-direction.
“Designated” hoop size numbers may give the notion of an I.D. size of 24 cm in the Y-direction x 30 cm in the X-direction. In some cases, the actual difference between the “designated” hoop size and the actual inside dimensions of the inner hoop may be significantly higher (even by a few centimeters).
