Button-fix develops all-metal panel fastener
The product is compliant for use with fire-retardant panels…
Button-fix has launched an all-metal version of its panel fixings for demanding applications such as fire-sensitive environment. The Type 1 Metal Button-fix retains the same benefits of the polymer versions – quick and easy installation, accessibility of services and strength – but is manufactured in materials that are compliant for use with fire-retardant panels.
“Designers frequently ask us which Button-fix to specify with fire-retardant panels; now we have the perfect answer,” comments Button-fix director Tony Wills. Available from May this year, Type 1 Metal Button-Fix meets the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) Standards: Annex 2.1 for non-combustible materials, making it suitable for all types of interior panelling on yachts and ships.
Producers of fire-retardant panels have been quick to see the advantages of this new product. With a stainless-steel spring to grip the button within the fix, Type 1 Metal Button-fix is also suitable for marine applications where vibration may be an issue. The reassuring ‘click’ as the Button-fix locks home has been tested over 10,000 times, to ensure reliable performance no matter how many times the panel is removed.
