Fastmount has launched its latest panel clip set – the VL-03H. Designed and made in New Zealand, the VL-03H is a heavy-duty version of Fastmount’s low profile VL-03 clip set. Designed for areas with minimal frame and panel thickness, the new VL-03H system has a 10kg pull out load and is fast and easy to install requiring no specialist tools or skilled labour.
Gregg Kelly, Fastmount MD, said of the new clips, “Although our VL-03 clip set is very popular around the world, feedback from our distributors and customers highlighted the desire for a similar very low profile system that could be used to mount heavier panels.
“We designed and developed the new VL-03H clip to give the style and installation benefits of the low profile system combined with the ability to mount heavier wall and ceiling panels.”
Available in black, the VL-03H panel clip set can be fixed using a range of adhesives as the patented super-groove system creates a mechanical bond. It can also be screw-fixed or riveted, making the system ideal for installation where minimal drilling is preferable.
Due to its design and installation, if recessed, the VL-03H clip set allows for a minimal 3mm gap in applications – perfect for use where space is paramount - and can also be installed onto 6mm plywood panels with minimal clearance, inspection panels, soft- or honeycomb-cored panels with thin facings.
Dominique Gauduchon, Fastmount’s European Commercial Agent works closely with distributors. Commenting on the launch of the new VL-03H clip system, she said, “We are proud of our close relationship with distributors and customers and Fastmount’s ability to meet their design and installation needs. The new VL-03H panel clip set is yet again another high quality and innovative solution demonstrating why Fastmount sets the standard for panel mounting.”
