secret fixing of tiled bath panel

Postby archtext » Mon Aug 04, 2008 11:29 pm

I have obtained additional feet from bath manufacturer and dispensed with alloy bath frames, made a treated timber frame to support a plywood bath panel which I want tiled. The finished tile will therefore not project beyond the bath lip and I am looking for a push on fitting similar to the "Keku" fittings principle but with better engagement which will allow the panel to be removed if necessary..
I saw a push fit plastic fixing in Germany which had a serrated female section which worked very well.
Has anyone come across such a fitting and if so do you know of the manufacturer?
There are lots of "drop down " metal bracket solutions such as keyhole type brackets but I would prefer to go the "push-on" route rather than the drop down route the latter being necessary with the keyhole plate type solution.
Any cabinetmakers out there?
I have no expeience of the Keku fittings either.
