Concealed Fastener Wall Panels

What are Concealed Fastener Wall Panels?

Concealed fastener wall panels are attached to the substructure without any visible fasteners.  Instead, concealed fastener panels are installed with clips and/or screws that are attached behind the face of the panel. 

Due to narrower cover widths and increased installation costs, concealed fastener systems are more costly than exposed fastener panels. However, this product category still offers a very economical architectural solution when compared to other systems such as IMP's and composite panels. 

McElroy's concealed fastener wall panels offer unique aesthetic and architectural interest leading to a combination of great curb appeal, economies and long service-life.

Advantages of Concealed Fastener Panels

For projects where aesthetics are important, it's hard to beat the clean uninterrupted lines that concealed fastener wall panels offer.  


Reduced Leak Exposure

Concealed fastener panels have a lower likelihood of leaking since the fasteners and/or clips are located behind the panel and protected from weather.
