Elements Aligned training staff perform on-site Hanger/C-Clip placement training (for new Contractors).
MEP inspections are completed and panels are placed by General Contractor or Installation Company.
The Panel Dock
For Architects and General Contractors
Utilize imperfect, conventional framing to create demountable spaces – thereby keeping modular interiors within your scope of work and under your control.
Keep MEP trades and carpenters on site throughout the project – no need to empty the job site for proprietary modular installers.
Improve LEED certification scores, reduce labor costs, and eliminate waste/mess during the initial project and subsequent renovations.
Chop weeks off construction schedules during post-inspection close-in/cladding.
Integrate beautiful panel-based design into your existing build-out.
Incorporate modular design much later in the project cycle (i.e. – not as integrated/disruptive because framing is able to proceed regardless of decision to use drywall vs. panels).
For Panel Manufacturers / Installers
Expand your market beyond permanently-installed wall cladding to include demountable interiors.
Increase your scope of work/revenue by completing projects faster.
For Owners / Developers
Create easily re-configurable spaces for 25% less than the cost of leading modular wall systems that require their own proprietary frames and installers.
Relocate to newly-renovated areas without disassembling existing spaces; other modular wall companies have to displace people presently occupying the existing space before starting construction in the new space. With EA’s Adjustable Panel Hangers, leave panels in place until the moment that the new space is ready to receive them.

Frequently Asked Questions
What types of panels can be secured with EA’s Adjustable Panel Dock system?
Absolutely any; including MDF, FRP, 3DL, TPL, and back-painted glass.
Is there a specific gauge/brand of steel stud on which the Panel Dock works?
The Panel Dock hangers fit on all brands of 20g EQ or 20g structural studs.
How are spaces around and between panels addressed?
EA provides easily installable/removable vinyl fillers for all horizontal and vertical reveals – including doors frames, inside corners, and ceilings.
What ensures that demountable panels will not detach from studs?
C-Clips (patent pending) attached to each panel have a safety bar along the bottom which prevents any installed panel from moving. Only deliberately swinging the bottom of the panel sufficient to detach from the magnets will allow it to lift from its secure seating on the Panel Dock.
Where are the Adjustable Panel Hangers manufactured?
All Panel Dock components and accessories are 100% manufactured in the U.S.
What reveal size between panels is achievable, and how are reveals filled?
Panels are able to be installed with a reveal as tight as 5/16"; they are then filled with a proprietary two-piece vinyl filler that is designed to still permit panels to be demounted easily.
