Fastmount’s Very Low Profile Range VL-03FR clip set has been fire-resistance certified by the Scientific and Technical Centre for Building (CSTB) in France.

Released in 2017, the VL-03FR clip set has become popular in commercial architecture and superyacht applications. The new fire-rating certification will open more doors for high volume panel fastening specification.

Completed by the Safety, Structures and Fire Department at the CSTB in France, the test was completed using a fire-retardant B-class (Euroclass according to EN 13501-1) MDF panel mounted onto wooden framework with the screw-fixed VL-03FR. The conclusion was that the VL-03FR out-performs external screw fixings in this environment.

 

“Following the results and information mentioned, we can conclude that the use of VL-03FR fixation clips does not degrade the Reaction to Fire behaviour of a fire-retarded MDF wood-based facing on which they are fixed.”  – CSTB, 24 January 2019.

Featuring the Very Low Profile range’s ability to be installed without special tools, the VL-03FR set was designed to ensure rapid installation into the low substrate and panel thickness, but also provide a solution for applications where fire-rating certification is non-negotiable. This allows seamless integration of a panel mounting system with fire-rated panel types in both architectural and marine settings.

 

The clip set creates a strong 10kg pull-out load, making the set perfect for use on wall and ceiling panels, as well as egress or access areas.
