DKT1 System

Hidden mechanical fixing using undercut screws on the reverse side of the piece

Projects with complex cutting. Some highly complex façades include diverse formats in the same design. A flexible system is required that optimises the points of fixture of the material on the sub-structure and which responds to the important loads of each project.

Inspired by the current desire for marble interiors, Opera takes inspiration rom elegant Italian Carrara marble and offers a new soft touch which is the new Dekton Velvet.

In the DKT1 system, according to the density of the fixings and minimum distances between perforations, a calculation is made of the individual forces to be absorbed by the material and the anchoring. Cylindrical perforation or undercut perforation achieve a clean and exact hole, where the peg and truncated cone-shaped screw work together in traction on the reverse side of the material.

The screw anchors to the profile, guaranteeing that the whole piece is fastened to the sub-structure. Dekton has this system certified for ventilated façades according to ETA 14/0413 and BBA 16/5346 for 12 mm and 20 mm thicknesses, although it can be used for other non-certified thicknesses.

Dekton, thanks to its resistance to flexo-traction (≥45 N/mm2), responds perfectly to the needs of this ventilated system, where wind and seismic activity are critical agents in calculating and designing the enclosure.

Dekton also offers a multitude of possibilities for cutting, in large or small format, regular or irregular shapes, etc., making it the ideal material for highly sophisticated and demanding solutions.
