The Reveal™ Collection is a series of carved and textured bamboo panels, manufactured by Smith & Fong. When carved, an interplay between the face layer and revealed inner core creates a stunning visual effect. Smith & Fong’s proprietary RealCore™ technology insures the revealed cores are consistent and that layers of bamboo material in bi-directional construction enable stability.

General Guidelines for installation of Plyboo Reveal® and Linear®Collection Panels
There are a variety of hanging systems available on the market. Our recommendation is the Monarch Z-clip system.
This system is sturdy and easy to use.
A few further helpful comments after having reviewed the Monarch installation instructions, installation video and having selected an appropriate clip system. The Monarch Z-clip can come with pre-drilled screw holes and additional holes can be made in the field as needed. Before setting screws, lay Z-clips in their proper position on the back of the panel. Draw a pencil line along the top and bottom edges of the clip as well as mark the panel where the screw holes will go. Using an 1/8”(3.2mm)drill bit, drill into the back of the panel to a depth of approx. ¼”(6.35mmtaking care not to drill thought the face. Using Loctite PL Premium Polyurethane Construction Adhesive, run a 1/8”(3.2mm)diameter bead of adhesive 3/8”(10mm)down from the top edge pencil mark on the panel. *It is important to clean the Z-clip surface before applying adhesive to achieve best adhesion results. It is also important to keep the bead of adhesive in the upper fluting area of the Z-clip to avoid adhesive squeezing into the seating area. Adhesive in this area can inhibit the companion clip from seating evenly creating an uneven hang.Using an #8-½” (12.7mm) stainless steel pan head phillips self-tapping screw, fasten the clips into place. Note as the depth of the screw and screw hole is minimal, it is best to screw these in place by hand rather than with a screw gun. For further note thE actual panel size of the panel is 47¾” x 95 ¾”(1.213m x 2.438m).
Alternative method to installing Plyboo Reveal or Linear Panels. The Plyboo panel is very sturdy and has great screw hold characteristics. If or when appropriate the panel can be face screwed directly to a supporting substrate using a micro head, counter sunk screw. Some people have found the GRK brand to work well and this brand offers matching colors as well. The advantages of this method are the ease and cost benefits. The drawback is the small holes left in the face of the panel.For aesthetic reasons the placement of these fasteners should be considered.
