The Keku fixing range can now be obtained from a good fixings supplier at a very reasonable price with a combined set costing about £66 per 100 sets when buying small quantities down to £30 per 100 sets for quantities of 600 sets. This price range allows panels to be fixed with this system at a very cost effective rate.
The Keku fixing system has been designed to allow panels to be fitted into a wall so that the fixings are hidden. In this case the finished wall will have a perfectly smooth appearance whilst the panels can be removed easing without the use of tools so that access is gained behind the wall at any time. This is ideal in areas where there is an advantage in being able to get to service runs or equipment such as central heating pumps quickly and easily. The bathroom or washroom areas are an ideal starting point but there are many others.
The system is easily put together as the wall frames and the fixings can all be assembled off site and then just fixed to the wall when brought to site, the panels can be assembled in the same way with all the panels made off site and the fixings installed prior to delivery. Once the wall frames have been attached to the walls then the panels can then be placed into position and pushed in to their final position. To remove the panels they are just pulled out from their clips by pulling on the edges of the panels.
There are a number of different types of fixings and they are all made from a black Makrolon material which has a temperature resistance between minus 100 degree C and plus 135 degrees C which will cover anything likely to be found in the UK. The panels are all surface mounted with a 15mm cavity between panels. The clips work on a male to female system with the male fittings being put on one side and the female on the other side. When the panels are placed into position the one fitting pushes into the other and the spring of the plastic joint holds it in position. If the panels are heavier than this push-in fitting will take, the Keku system uses a fixing so that panels hang on the fittings on the frame, in this case the panels are lifted off instead of being pulled off.
