Clunk click for every fix

The UK and Ireland distributor of Corian, CDUK, has used the speed and flexible nature of Button-fix Type 1 Bonded fastenings for assembling its exhibition stand at the Surface Design Show 2017.

 With the fixes attached at the time of fabrication, the 8m2 stand could be swiftly erected on-site without using any measurement tools.

 Corian is the original solid surface that turns inspiration into reality as it can be thermoformed, engraved, backlit and transformed to fulfill any design vision.

When exhibiting at industry events, in common with most companies, CDUK has limited time to assemble its stand. With several Corian based demonstration units and the entire MDF stand clad with Corian for the Surface Design Show 2017, the company sought an alternative fixing solution that would be quicker than using traditional methods.

Mark Horsman, Workshop Manager at CDUK said, “When the Button-fix Type 1 Bonded was launched, we trialled the fastener in our training room, using its removable functionality to create a wall of panels showcasing the year’s colour trends in Corian.

“We were very impressed as the Button-fix fastening enables us to easily update the wall as new trends come through, so when we were considering how we could improve the exhibition experience for our set up team, Button-fix was the obvious answer.”

Ideal for use where screw fixing to a panel is not possible or would impede the project’s overall finish, the Button-fix Type 1 Bonded presents an invisible and durable solution.

Comprising a flat-faced Fix and a counterpart Button, the Fix is securely attached to the panel whilst the Button is attached to the adjoining structure.

Rebated into the panel using a multi-jig to provide a flush finish or simply surface mounted to the panel to ensure a narrow gap, the Fix is attached to the panel using an adhesive or, for lightweight panels, a fix pad. Completed offsite prior to arriving at the exhibition, CDUK found the pre-build element of Button-fix fasteners a useful time saver when assembling the stand.

Mark added, “As the Fixes were pre-installed, when we arrived to set up the stand we only needed to use the red Button marker to mark the Button’s correct location and then screw them on. There was no need to use pencils and rulers, which saved valuable time and meant three of us could quickly and easily assemble the stand.”

Using more than 100 Type 1 Bonded fasteners to complete the 8m2 stand, the unique fixing solution saved a significant amount of time, which would have traditionally been spent marking out locations for screws or split batons.

When installed the two components are brought together, producing an audible ‘click’ to assure the installer that the fastening is secure.

Having used the innovative fastening product first-hand, CDUK has recently become a stockist of the Button-fix range. Gary Baker, Managing Director of CDUK said, “At CDUK we’re always on the lookout for innovative solutions that help make the working lives of our fabricator customers easier. Button-fix is a high quality solution that fixes Corian panels simply and securely. We’re delighted to be able to bring this solution to the solid surface industry.”
