    We are installing 6 Komatex panels (6'H x 4'W) at the local university to interior brick walls. The top 1/2 of the panel will be overlayed with Walltalkers tac-wall (cork / bulletin board).

    The facilities / interior designers are asking for the hardware to be "pretty"...not just some ugly blue masonry screw showing when all said and done.

    Looking for some advice for a screw that will not only hold 4'x6' 1/2" thick Komatex panel to a brick wall...yet look nice? Anything with a decorative "cap" like a standoff etc. out there and easily accessible!? TIA

    Install wall anchors and use the Faux Standoff Caps from MBS or Gifford?

    I think it would look nice it you built a nice frame around it and hung it with a french cleat.

    College kids = destructive. They want it screwed FLAT to the wall. They initially had acrylic panels with standoffs that lasted a week Lol And these are in a stairwell, so LOTS of passing traffic. Otherwise I like the cleat option

    These badboys are great:

    Stainless steel screw covers, acts as a washer and looks good. Just need to find some that fit the screws you are using.
