Fixing of pieces onto an external thermal insulation system (ETIS)
Highly energy-efficient projects. In our fast-moving world, homes undergo multiple refurbishments for aesthetic and decorative reasons as well as to create warmer indoor environments.
Inspired by the current desire for marble interiors, Opera takes inspiration from elegant Italian Carrara marble and offers a new soft-touch which is the new Dekton Velvet Texture finish.
The DKS system is an ETIS (External Thermal Insulation System) solution. The insulation panels are fixed onto the enclosure and also anchored mechanically for safety. A supporting mesh is applied over these to receive the suitable adhesive for the final pieces of the facing.
The pieces are fixed directly onto the insulation, so there is a limit to the weight and load, which can take pieces from 23" x 16" or 28" x 12" maximum. It is a system used for refurbishments or very enclosed projects in terms of surface area, which allows energy consumption to be reduced without losing the useful surface area of the interior.
