Removing Wall Panels From GAP Store In Mall.


Has anyone installed these panels in a GAP or similar mall fit out?

A local GAP closed and I am looking at buying all of the wall panels. I haven't had a chance to investigate closely but just looking quickly I can't tell how they are fastened. They are a 4'x10' maple plywood sheet with a 1"+/- metal track between sheets. Fairly tight to the wall so I don't see how I would get tools behind it. I'm wondering if the sheets just lift off?

I'm going to look closer tonight or tomorrow but thought I would ask if anyone has experience with them.

Thanks

Any feedback?

I was wondering how you made out, I have to replace a sliding grille that stores into a very tight pocket, and will need to remove similar panels to get inside to reach fasteners.

Thanks

Lift up about an inch and they are free. They were only hanging on a track. No tools needed to get the panels off and I wasn't interested in the track they were hanging on so I left that.
