Type 1 Button-fix for connecting parallel panels where proven strength is paramount

The Button-fix concept is simple: durable nylon buttons are attached to the back of one panel and the mating fixes are attached to the other. Bring the panels together and slide until the Button-fixes ‘click’.

The Type 1 Fix is ideal for interior fit-outs, renovation and furniture projects and its strength has been verified by an independent test house.
