1 Fixing the joists
Install the aluminium joists in a smooth surface, respecting the distances as shown in the drawing
15 mm between the strips end; 10 mm from the wall.
Perpendicular slat spacing: strip spacing between 300 and 350 mm
Inclined slat spacing (45°): strip spacing Maximum 250 mm
1 to 2% incline.
Attention: leave 20 mm of space for thermal expansion along the length of the slats
