Application

The XTR is secretly fixed onto an extruded aluminium framework, horizontally, vertically or diagonally.


The aluminium planks are connected by an interlocking male and female joint, which offers a recess or hairline appearance.


Optima XTR system's installation and backing walls are designed with ease and versatility in mind. Compatible with various types of external insulation and wall constructions, it offers solutions for easy installation. The system’s adjustability, along with the use of wafer head, self-tapping stainless-steel screws, ensures a secure and precise installation.

Description

A tailored extruded profile system, Optima XTR shapes durable aluminium alloy through a die to create six distinctive profiles. Crafted from extruded aluminium 6063-T6, XTR is exceptionally durable ensuring projects maintain integrity over time. Lightweight, highly customisable and cost-effective, Optima XTR brings design visions to life.


Features and benefits:
