Interesting. I haven't had any of the strips so much as even peel away at the corners yet. I've tried pushing down on the panels with force as well as try pulling them away from wall with both hands and I'm not able to get them to budge. Ill see how they hold up over time.

Other permanent options for hanging panels that I considered are z clips and insulation impaling clips.

It must be my Sheetrock then? The paint holds and the actual paper is peeling on mine. I have to wedge a knife in there to ensure it pulls from the Velcro and not the wall.

Oh man, that sux. I believe I listed T25 as the staple type. That was wrong. I used T50 staples 3/8". One staple on each side of the velcro strip like this: |[||||[| with [ being the staple and | being the velcro. They are 3/8" inch wide and 3/8" long staples. I used a manual stapler for those. They clamp the velcro into the wall pretty tight. How are you attaching your staples? Maybe the staples make the difference?

With a pnumatic gun. I put the two same as you but on on top and one on bottom also. I don't forsee having to peel them off anyway. And the ones I do move, around the screen, hold onto the wood strong enough to hang off of.
