INSTALLATION: Installed according to installation diagram M15, which includes information regarding minimum overall depth of system. For larger areas (>50m2) it can be more cost efficient to make the direct fixed installation with Focus C and Z-profiles according to M109. Displaced joints (brick pattern) will facilitate the alignment of the joints.
