DKT2 System

Hidden mechanical fixing with metallic profile on the continuous groove of the piece’s edge

Projects with horizontal hierarchy. Some designs seek to achieve a very marked lineal frame, from spatial volume to the dimension of the construction details. The assembly as a design tool in these cases can be a major ally and help to realise this linear concept.

DKT2 System  - DKT2 grande 30

Description

This DKT2 system comprises of a horizontal profile that supports the face in a continuous way, all based on a groove that runs the whole length of the piece. A groove of minimum 3-4 mm and up to 15 mm deep is required to conceal the length-wise profile that is anchored to the uprights of the sub-structure.

This solution creates an almost hermetic ventilated chamber, due to the continuity of the supporting profile itself. Dekton has this certified system for ventilated façades according to ETA 14/0413 and BBA 16/5346 for 12 mm and 20 mm thicknesses, although it can also be used with 30 mm.

Thanks to Dekton’s high density (≥2.50 g/cm3), its thickness of 12 mm, 20 mm and 30 mm respectively allows for very precise grooves that do not affect the mechanical fastenings. As an inorganic material, it is has a very low dilation coefficient (6.5 · 10-6 °C-1) which allows for rigorous control of the assembly of small as well as large-format pieces.

By optimising the cutting of each board, even very slim pieces can also be used, increasing the linearity of the building by created layers that allow the colours, sparkle and reflections of the hidden metallic profile beneath the pieces to be seen.
