Monarch Metal Fabrication introduced a Monarch Z Clip Selector Tool today to assist customers in understanding the right Monarch Clip for their application. Below is a screen shot of the new page.
The tool asks the user to input the environment of the project (indoor / outdoor), the clearance between the top of the panel and the finished ceiling, the material and thickness of the panel and the substrate of the mounting surface. The tool then returns a recommendation of which Monarch Z Clip to use, which screw to use with the panel clips on the rear side of the panel and what screw to use for the continuous lengths along the wall. In addition, based on testing that Monarch has recently performed, the selector tool gives information on the weight at which the system failed in practices.
