SNAP SYSTEM INSTALLATION

0- Panelite SNAP System for backlit walls and ceilings - quick+easy to install

SNAP System for Backlit Walls and Ceilings  |  Easy to Install  |  Easy to Maintain

“The first panel we pulled out of the crate was the first panel we needed to install. Everything went smoothly after that and was in the exact order we needed it. All the supports were pre-cut and the panels were nicely framed out. We just shot lasers to make sure our wires lined up right, then mounted the carriers. Once you start snapping in the panels the system squares up by itself. Peeling off the protective film was the most difficult part! Installing the SNAP ceiling was easy. It looks good, and it makes us look good.”

– James Tate, Commercial Interiors Acoustics Inc., Installation team at AUDI Valencia, CA
