DKTN Surfaces: Design, Quality and Versatility

No material adapts as well as DKTN to the needs of the architect and designer when it comes to designing the surfaces of a project: DKTN is perfectly suited to interior areas, damp areas or special solutions.

Interior Cladding

Interior Cladding

DKTN is ideal for creating a perfect design in interior spaces in any texture, large format and with custom cuts.

Damp Areas

Damp Areas

For pools or spas, showers or bathtubs, DKTN’s properties embellish and optimise any project.

Special Solutions

Special Solutions

Chimneys, lifts, doors: There are no limits for DKTN; it shines in almost any setting of the architectural project.

Differentiating Elements

DKTN is not only unique in terms of its properties: In addition, the possibility of working with an ultra-thin format (DKTN Slim), receiving LEED points and the ease of installation are key advantages over other products.

DKTN Surfaces: Design, Quality and Versatility  - Puntos 67
DKTN Slim 4mm

DKTN Slim is the ultra-thin DKTN, where the material has been reduced to its minimum thickness, while preserving all the technical characteristics of the material. This decreases the weight of the material and allows for easy installation. DKTN Slim is a material without internal tension, so it is not necessary to release it by cutting it.

LEED Points

DKTN can receive different LEED points in different categories thanks to its: Environmental Product Declaration. Reflectance index depending on the colour. Sources of raw materials. Low emission material.

Maximum fire and heat-resistance

Installazione facile

All DKTN thicknesses can be provided with or without mesh, which provides flexibility and consistency to the pieces for better handling and installation on site. Thanks to the flatness of DKTN, the best in the market, it is possible to install the material directly onto the existing surface, avoiding removal of the previous material and saving time.

Formats and Thicknesses

DKTN offers a wide variety of format options thanks to its 3200 x 1440 dimensions. In the case of interior cladding, there are no limitations regarding format, although we recommend the following if you need to cut the material, in order to improve its use:

We recommend low thicknesses for this application to reduce the weight of the pieces, improve handling and reduce installation times.

Joints

The placement joints are an essential component for the quality, durability and aesthetics of a surface.

A joint of 2 mm is recommended for interiors, always respecting structural joints, or joints for expansion or movement of the building.

The stability of the supports, the environmental conditions, the requirements for use and the properties of the selected grouts and sealing materials will be of great importance for the design of the joint.

Edges

Pillars

DKTN can add a special touch to a design by adapting to the existing structure and providing solutions for areas with complex geometries. A good example are pillars; when covered with the material you can leave the decorated edges of the DKTN visible.

Manutenzione

Thanks to the almost zero porosity of the material, DKTN can be maintained with a damp cloth to remove traces of dust.

It is recommended to carry out a final intensive cleaning of the works to remove any remains of the materials used in the installation, such as adhesives or grouting material.

 

Safety

It is necessary to know the necessary safety rules in case of handling and preparation of the product, for which we recommend downloading the fact sheets and the manual.
