 SOTECH REVEAL ADVANCED HOOK ON SECRET FIX RAINSCREEN SYSTEM, OPTIMA FC+

Sotech has today unveiled an evolution of its original hook on secret fix rainscreen solution, Optima FC. Featuring an innovative slide and lock adjustment mechanism, carrier rail hooks can now be locked in position on site by installers, rather than in the factory, leading to significantly reduced lead times for all parties.

 

Named “Optima FC+”, the improved system is an evolution of Optima FC – a hook-on secret fix rainscreen system.
