PRESS RELEASE WEDNESDAY 19 OCTOBER 2016
The leader in panel mounting systems, Fastmount, has been nominated for the DAME Design Award 2016 for its new TC-06 Textile Range clip set.
The TC-06 Textile Range clip set is the first purpose-built solution for mounting interior and exterior cushions on superyachts, that allows crew to easily remove and replace cushions to exactly the same position every time.
The innovation of the TC-06 Textile Range has been recognized by quick uptake in the superyacht market, with several of the largest superyacht yards in Europe already incorporating the clip into new builds and refit work.
The TC-06 Textile Range clip set will be displayed at the DAME – Design Award Presentation in the InnovationLAB in Hall 6 at METSTRADE. The clip’s functionality can be experienced first hand at the Fastmount exhibition stand 02.224 in the New Zealand Pavilion.
The DAME – Design Award is the most recognized international design competition that distinguishes innovative new concepts and designs in the global marine industry. The jury looks for excellence in design and innovation, which sets the pace for the next generation of product development.
“We are very proud that the TC-06 Textile Range has been nominated for the DAME Design Award, having been nominated in 2007 for the PanelSafe Panel Restraint system and in 2013 for the Metal Range. It’s fantastic to have our efforts in innovation recognized,” says Gregg Kelly, Managing Director of Fastmount.
The category awards are presented in seven categories. One of the seven winners will be chosen as the overall winner of the DAME Design Award 2016. The awards will be announced prior to the start of METSTRADE on Tuesday 15 November 2016, which runs from the 15th to 17th of November 2016 at the RAI in Amsterdam.
