AbstractA modular wall construction includes a plurality of laterally spaced support posts with at least one panel provided to be arranged between the support posts. One or both of the post and frame of the panel include aligned mutually spaced slots in commonly facing walls thereof, each slot being at least partially defined by oppositely disposed first and second edge segments. Connecting elements are secured to and extend laterally from either the panel or post to overly the walls of the adjacent post or panel and the respective slots. The connecting elements include hook shaped portions which are received in the slots in engagement with the first edge segments, and have openings therein aligned with the slots adjacent to the second edge segments thereof. Fasteners extend through the openings into the slots to coact in engagement with the second edge segments to prevent disengagement of the hook portions from the first edge segments.
