Maintenance and Safety
Thanks to its dimensions of 126" x 56", Dekton offers the possibility of producing the material in an infinite number of formats. Can be adapted for any required use.
Suggested formats, taking into account the total size of the table for maximum product use.
Choice of Dekton thicknesses: 8 mm / 12 mm / 20 mm
Private Areas/Pedestrian Use: In general, in private areas that are exclusively for pedestrian use, we are free to choose the thickness and design without restrictions.
Public spaces mainly for pedestrians: For public spaces that are mainly for pedestrians with occasional vehicle use, the thicknesses of 12 mm and 20 mm are ideal, and may be free in the format. For 0.31” we recommend the use of square formats, since it improves performance in the event of possible unevenness of the substrate.
Spaces with vehicular traffic: For spaces with vehicle traffic, even taking the required calculation of loads into account, our recommended thickness is 20 mm.
The placement joints are an essential element for the quality, durability and good performance of the flooring.
It is recommended that you have a joint of 2 mm in interiors and 3 mm for exteriors, and always respect the structural and expansion joints, and the 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.
Dekton is prepared to respond to all the irregular points of a floor.
Dekton can be manufactured in strips to create a skirting board that gives continuity to the surface, respecting the aesthetics of the floor and also providing the same technical characteristics and maintenance to this piece.
The corners must be designed taking into account the mechanical stresses to which they will be exposed. In general, it is advisable to round or reinforce the edge.
The choice of adhesive is determined by the placement support and use, distinguishing between interior and exterior.
Summary of recommendations:
Generic adhesive according to EN-12004
In order for Dekton to perform well, it is necessary for the material to be installed appropriately, following the steps found in our Large Format Facing Manual.
Having a correct support, choosing the necessary adhesive according to the application, respecting the joints and a correct placement and installation of the pieces are the key points for the material to shine indefinitely.
Dekton is an ideal material for flooring due to the low maintenance required. After performing the final cleaning, which is necessary to eliminate waste from the installation and which requires specific products, daily maintenance can easily be carried out whether dry or wet. If you have any questions, please consult the Dekton Cleaning and Maintenance Manual for flooring. For our Grip+ treatment we have developed a specific cleaning and maintenance manual.
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.
