The 200 SERIES is a set of unique, strong, and versatile fasteners, they allow for 1/8” of movement. The the high strength and ability to allow for summer to winter expansion and contraction of the panels makes the Galaxy one of the most versatile fasteners available. And that's why we call it the Galaxy.
The Galaxy comes with 234 Euro Screw, 1/2” Thread Length.
The Galaxies are a set of unique, strong, and versatile fasteners. The high strength and small size are possible because the arms grip from the sides. These long arms allow for up to 1/8” of movement at the connection between the panel and the mounting point for expansion and contract of the panel. This means the Galaxies will hold larger panel that have more movement. The Galaxy works well with larger wood panels, plywood, particle board MDF, plastics, solid surface and more. The Galaxy does lose holding power, it should not be used panel that will be more removed than 10 times.
There are four different Galaxy designs, the number of arms determines their strength. The thicker the arms are the harder it is to pull the fasteners away from the wall. Like the popular Zero there is no requirement to drop and lock, the panel snaps straight onto place. The Galaxy is a compression fit, the center snap inserts grip into a 1-1/4" drilled hole, and the 234 mounting screws use a 5 mm hole. The Galaxy can be quickly inserted into place with a hammer or press, there is a small rim that indents the surface of the wood to help stop the insert flush with the surface.
The engineered plastic body and steel mounting screw on Galaxy can withstand repeated removal. At only 5/16”, thin enough for ½” thick panels.
Note: The 224 Galaxy has a 30 Lb. weight limit per insert.
The Galaxy does lose holding power, it should not be used panels that will be more removed than about 10 times.
It should be used overhead only in combination with safety lanyard.
