In response to strong demand from Fastmount’s clients in the architecture sector, the global leaders in panel mounting systems launches its strongest clip to date - the extra heavy duty,
Designed and made in New Zealand, the PC-VMX clip is perfect for a multitude of architectural applications including the installation of heavy duty ceiling and wall panels made of 18mm MDF, Corian, Hi-Mac and some types of stone.
With its pull out load of 15kg, the PC-VMX also has exceptional high shear strength due to low clip movement within the clip set. This will give architects reassurance that a heavy wall panel can be securely and invisibly fastened and precisely placed without the risk of sagging over time. The very high shear load capacity also makes it perfect for decorative wall panels for highscale installations.
Gregg Kelly, Managing Director of Fastmount, comments, “Our new PC-VMX is a classic Fastmount product that has evolved in response to our clients’ installation requirements. Originally designed as a seat back clip for superyacht tender seat covers where the protective covering needed to be wrapped around the back of the cushions, customers started using the PC-VM1 for wall and ceiling panels to exploit its features. So, we’ve evolved the design to create the new PC-VMX to deliver style and installation benefits wherever and whenever heavy panels need to be mounted.”
In keeping with all Fastmount products, the PC-VMX clip is durable, easy to fit and align and can be used for a variety of applications where invisible fixing, superior joint finish and secure mounting is required. The product features a secondary clipping action that gives additional security when installing extra heavy panels.
Available in black, the PC-VMX male clip can be used with the PC-F1A, PC-RF1, PC-SF1 and PC-AF1 female clips in the standard Fastmount range and works in conjunction with the Panel Safe Restraint systems. It can be fitted and removed easily using the specially designed tools.
The PC-VMX clip can be purchased from any one of Fastmount’s global network of distributors.
