Product Showcase EAGLE MOULDINGS: Three New Z Clips FLEXIBLE MATERIALS: Veneer Products Eagle Mouldings has introduced three new Z Clips / Panel Clips for the architectural millwork and glass/ glazing industries. Eagle Mouldings’ two new 5/8” lift off Z Clips include a grooved 1/4” Standoff Z Clip with a 5/8” lift off and a grooved 3/16” Standoff Z Clip with a 5/8” lift off. The third Z Clip is a smooth face 1/4” stand off with a 3/8” lift off. Nearly all architectural millwork companies use glass as well as aluminum in combination with wood for the vast majority of their projects. When glass is used, Eagle’s newly designed Smooth Faced Z Clip is preferred over a Standard Eagle-clip Z Clip because of its ability to give superior bonding to the glass given the absence of “cleats” or grooves on its face. See Eagle Mouldings’ entire line of Z Clips and Panel Hanger products as well as Stainless Steel Corner Guards and Kick Plates at . From Smooth Faced Z Clips to Standard Eagle-Clip Z Clips, Eagle’s Z Clips securely hold panels in place while allowing for quick and easy removal later if needed.
