Simply connects parallel panels, including panels with no clearance at the side. It can be surface-mounted or semi-recessed into the panel and its installation depth matches the Type 1 Button-fix, allowing the two fasteners to be used to hang adjacent panels.
The Fix housing is moulded from PBT and the Button is acetal - both strong and durable engineering polymers. As a general guide, four Button-fix Type 3 fasteners on a vertical panel will support loads weighing up to a maximum of 60kg (132 lbs), provided that the screws and substrate are properly matched and all other installation instructions are complied with. Four Type 3 Button-fixes can also support a ceiling panel of up to 10kg (22 lbs). Manufactured in the UK.
Many applications of Type 3 are the same as the versatile Type 1 Button-fix, but where a push-on/pull-off engagement is required. Type 3 Button-fix is ideal for:
The Type 3 Fix can be surface-mounted, creating an 8mm gap between the panels, or semi-rebated to reduce the gap to 3mm. Align the Buttons with the Fixes and press firmly until each Button-fix goes 'click'. No clearance at the sides of the panel is required for assembly or removal.
The Button Marker for both Type 1 and Type 3 helps to quickly and accurately align the Button-fix installation, reducing the need for measuring and marking out.
Snap a marker into each Fix, then position the second panel and press firmly. The marker points will leave indents in the panel surface, which can be used as pilot guides for the Buttons.
