Monarch Metal introduces a new hanging system for mounting HPL Phenolic, Glass and ACM panels, the MFTAPE system. Monarch says its engineering team worked with 3M and major HPL panel manufacturers to devise a system that would reduce labor and installation time. Monarch’s MFTAPE system includes two strips of 3M’s high strength VHB Architectural Panel Tape as shipped. To install, users prepare the surface, peel and stick the Monarch profile on the back of the panel, which is then ready to engage with the Monarch Z clip mounted on the wall. When installed correctly, each lineal foot of the MFTAPE system can support 7.5 pounds in shear, using a 5x safety factor. For more load bearing capacity, add additional lengths of the MFTAPE system as appropriate.The MFTAPE system can be used indoors and outdoors with non-porous substrates such as HPL phenolic, glass and aluminum composite panels.The product is available in 12 foot lengths and pairs with the standard MF375 Monarch extrusions.
