Renowned for product innovation and practical solutions in marine panel mounting, Fastmount Ltd of New Zealand have applied the same approach to their stand at the forthcoming METS exhibition; a custom built demo stand comprising a section through a boat. Visitors are invited to get hands on with the Fastmount range and play around with removable panels that have been fitted with Fastmount clips. The demo installations demonstrate typical applications including wall, ceiling, floor and bolster fixing.

A METS 2007 DAME nominee, Fastmount are proud to present a range of new products at METS. The first is a heavy duty version of their standard clip. The new clip (PC-M2H) has double the pullout load of the standard Male PC-M1 clip and is designed for use with thicker and heavier panels, including exterior deck head panels and high repeat use applications such as seating squabs and bolsters.

The Fastmount Surface mount Male, using super-groove technology (patent pending), is an extension of the Fastmountâ„¢ system, designed for use with thin walled panels and where installers prefer an adhesive fix. It is ideal for pre-finished panels such as composite foam cored panels, honeycomb cored panels & other pre painted panels to be installed.

Effective and simple servicing at sea is key to the success of the Fastmount system. A new tailor made service kit contains all the items needed to ensure that service and maintenance is cost effective and rapid. The new kit, (CT-06S) contains install tools, panel removal tools and replacement clips.

Last and by no means least is a simple solution which enables customers to experience the benefits of the innovative Fastmount system back at their own yard. The Fastmountâ„¢ Trial Kit (CT-06T) is specifically designed for companies to evaluate the system and contains a range of Fastmount clips: self tapping clip sets (PC-01), male and female surface mount clips (PC-SM2 & PC-SF1), a set of Fastmountâ„¢ tools for installation, and product information sheets.

The three new innovations will be on show at METS on the Fastmount stand which is in the New Zealand Pavillion in Oost Hall 4, stand 04.532. Staff from Fasmount HQ, as well as teams from Fastmount's™ European distributor network will be on hand to welcome visitors and present the company's product range.
