This framework, made by ETANCO, ensures an even surface over the entire façade and accommodates the thermal expansion of the Corian® panels. The fixing devices are concealed. The fixing method is designed to allow movement due to thermal expansion and to accommodate deflection due to wind loads and other horizontal loads that can produce rotational forces.
