Interior Panels: Flexible and Customizable Aluminum Profiles

There are many wall coverings, ceilings, and facades available on the market. They come in many styles, serve different purposes, and can be supplied by many companies. They all share one thing in common: they are built on frames that often don’t attract much attention but directly affect the installation and final result. The frames are varied in terms of their complexity and materials, as well the way that the panels are connected. Hidden screws and other parts cannot be used to fix the panels. This means that other techniques are needed.

New Zealand’s Fastmount is a specialist in hidden panel systems. They have just launched Stratlock, a system for interiors. This product offers builders and designers a complete, integrated system that can be used to build ceilings and walls on irregular substrates. It can be used to attach internal panels with precision and can also be cut to any size to make the frame.

Connectors allow extruded aluminum profiles to be attached, allowing flexibility. The Stratlock Rail System was designed to be used with the same line of clips. This allows for a flexible and precise method of framing walls and attaching interior panels.

The clips are placed along the profiles to attach the panels. Male clips will be already screwed on. This allows panel and frame to be connected by a simple fitting without the use of special tools. It’s a hidden fastener which is attached to the frame and panel quickly. This allows for support adjustment before locking in place. Fastmount has the highest shear strength, 18 kg tensile loads, and Fastmount’s highest shear strength.

This makes installation easier and gives the substrate a more professional look. Pre-designing and building the entire substrate is possible before it is installed. This will speed up construction, but the material weighs only 500 grams per meter.
