Rotofast Panel Anchors are made from stabilized polypropylene plastic. Strong and non-reactive, Rotofast Panel Anchors will not chemically react with fiberglass binders.
Rotofast Panel Anchors are turned through the face of the panel. Most panel face materials can be punctured with the smooth pointed awl and the hole closed easily afterwards.
Panels installed with Rotofast Panel Anchors are also easily removed. Using the template to locate the anchors, simply reverse the installation procedure.

Size
The Rotofast Panel Anchor is approximately 2 inches in diameter and less than 1 inch high.

Strength
Rotofast Panel Anchors securely fasten fiberglass core panels to any substrate.
The sharp leading edge of the Rotofast Panel Anchor cuts cleanly into the panel core material, pulling it securely into the substrate.
The large surface area is the key to the high pull out strength of the Rotofast Panel Anchor. Rotofast anchors have been tested to hold 45 lbs in 6 lb/ft3 rigid fiberglass board insulation.

Compatibility
Rotofast Panel Anchors can be used to fasten fiberglass core panels to any substrate.
Each substrate (concrete block, wall board, wood) may require different types of fasteners to attach Rotofast Panel Anchors securely. Your panel manufacturer or Rotofast dealer can provide recommendations on this.
Panels may contain any rigid fiberglass core (4 to 12 lbs/ft3), and be of a 1 to 4 inch thickness. Panel face material may include:
Plain
Fabric
Vinyl
Sprayed on coatings
