Comment Invisible fixation: Enables invisible fixation to the support. Eliminates the stage of pre-drilling and countersinking. Composite material with high mechanical strength, guaranteeing a high quality system. Flexibility in compression and/or expansion, allowing re-positioning after stress (unlike steel). Allows lateral movement between the planks without any resulting deterioration of the wood. Allows the strips to be isolated from the support. Provides a guarantee of long-lasting durability. Shortens the installation time. Allows even jointing between strips. Ensures free circulation of air. Reinforce the general aspect thanks to a wooden frame fixed with non visible screws. Allow a vertical installation. Saves time in installation. Ensures regular gaps between boards.
