The hidden detail that holds everything together

Are you passionate about detail?

If so Button-fix fasteners are designed for you. It's a versatile range which makes panelling walls or ceilings, assembling furniture, and hanging many other interior fittings easy and reliable.

What are the benefits of Button-fix?

  • Removable and interchangeable, unlike panels fixed with adhesive 
  • More secure than panels hung on split battens or cleats
  • Faster to install than other secret fixing methods



Button-fix - The Range

Select from Type 1, Type 2 or the all new Type 3 Button-fix ranges.

These are explained in more detail below, plus how they can be utilised in your projects to give a flawless professional finish to panelling.



New Product

Button-fix Type 3

The new push-on/pull-off mount for wall and ceiling panels.

The Type 3 Simply connects parallel panels, including those with no side clearance. 

It can be surface-mounted or semi-recessed into the panel and its installation depth matches the Type 1 Button-fix, allowing the two fasteners to be used in conjunction to hang adjacent panels.


  • Wall and lightweight ceiling panels
  • Boat interiors with irregular-shaped panels
  • Acoustic panels including acoustic felt panels
  • Upholstered panels, bed headboards and banquette seating
  • Panels at the end-of-run or in tight corners on a Button-fix Type 1 installation, where sliding engagement is not possible
