Button-fix Type 3

Our new push-on/pull-off mount for wall and ceiling panels

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 132 lbs (60kg), 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 22 lbs (10kg). Manufactured in the UK.

Instructions for

Button-fix Type 3

No items found.

The Type 3 Fix can be surface-mounted, creating a 0.31" gap between the panels, or semi-recessed to reduce the gap to 0.12". 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.

Button Marker for Type 1 & Type 3

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.
