Coloured Fir Tree Buttons

Coloured Fir Tree Buttons

Posted 29 November 2016

Fir tree buttons are the perfect way of securing sheet materials or board to another panel or for holding components to panels.

Also known as pine tree buttons, they are commonly used in the automotive industry to secure trims, but also have many uses in upholstered furniture, electrical equipment and domestic appliances.

Quickly installed with a simple push, the fins are angled to allow easy insertion into the hole, but this angle prevents the part from coming out as resistance is then in place.

They are made from nylon or acetal in numerous sizes from 3.0mm to 12.0mm to suit all requirements. We are happy to advise you on your requirements to ensure you choose the correct fir tree button for your application.

Generally fir tree buttons were only available in standard colours of black, grey or natural, but actually there are no limits to the colour possibilities available (quantity permitting) when choosing from our range of fir tree buttons.

A wide choice of colours are available from stock, but we can also offer on certain products a colour match service where you can specify an exact RAL colour match of your fir tree buttons. This is available on low to medium order quantities in some case as low as 30,000 pieces.

Colour co-ordinated fir tree buttons are a popular choice with airlines and interior seating manufacturers, this option allows you to match these useful panel fasteners to your company colours or vehicle interior trim.

Head styles vary to include flat head, textured head (for matching to the panel it is being fitted to), smooth head and in some cases without a witness/split line.

Bespoke fir tree buttons are also available subject to a minimum order quantity, contact us today with your requirements.

• Wide choice of stocked colours
