Edge Plate Attachment
Our Edge Plate attachment system is one of our simplest systems. Each panel is shipped with factory attached edge plates around the panel edges. Attachment is made by screwing through the joints through the slotted hole in the anchor plate and into the framing behind. This system requires that framing be located behind each panel joint and the minimum joint size is 3/8″ (10 mm) as all attachments are made through the joints.
