Hidden mechanical fixing with staples at intervals along the groove on the edge of the piece
Projects designed to the last detail. To achieve continuous transparent pieces, the meeting points of windows and corners can be critical when making decisions about cutting pieces or when designing aesthetic and functional construction solutions.
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.
In the DKT3 system, pieces are fastened to the profile by hidden staples that are inserted at intervals along a continuous groove at the edge of the piece, which can end at 1.1" at each extreme, thereby improving the aesthetics and functionality of the lateral pieces. This system is fairly flexible, although there are certain dimensional limits, as a maximum the piece can be 28" on the vertical for the 0.05" thickness and 39" for the 0.08" thickness.
In cases that require a greater dimension on the vertical section, the 30 mm thickness should be used to counteract fatigue on the grooved part of the material from the anchoring. 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.

With Dekton, pieces can be cut to measure, fixing the vertical limit and allowing total flexibility on the horizontal, also guaranteeing a high resistance in the interval groove (≥ 670N) as this is an ultra-compacted material.
Unlike conventional ceramics, Dekton is designed and produced as a single mass, with uniform coloration and composition. It is suitable for more technically complex applications that require visible solutions without compromising on aesthetics.
