Stone Cladding with Built-In Water Management
Dekton is a sophisticated blend of raw materials used to produce large format engineered stone panels. Desana creates a rainscreen assembly using Dekton panels to create an exterior façade of unmatched integrity. Rainscreen design, rear ventilation, multiple layers of built-in water management, and thermal protection make the Dekton system one of the highest performing wall assemblies available. Dekton panels have long life, extraordinary durability, and near imperviousness to water.
Dekton employs exclusive Sinterized Particle Technology, a high tech process which represents an accelerated version of the metamorphic change that natural stone undergoes when subjected to high temperatures and pressure over thousands of years. Sinterized Particle Technology synthesizes truly innovative procedures from the most advanced technology industries. This evolution represents a technological and industrial leap capable of generating a new process, a revolutionary material and a leading product. Electronic microscopy allows us to fully appreciate the material’s zero porosity, a consequence of the sinterization and ultra-compaction process exclusive to DEKTON. This zero porosity and lack of the micro-defects that cause tension or weak spots mark the difference as far as DEKTON is concerned.
