Baumit Expansion joint profiles
Baumit expansion joint profiles are:-
- easy to use, PVC exterior expansion joint profiles with fibreglass mesh welded to it’s surface for strength
- for providing a clean, weather tight expansion joint detail to insulation systems.
- for creating the required detailing for fire breaks across party walls in insulations systems.
- for using with all thin layer renders from Unger-Diffutherm, Baumit, etc.
Where is it used?
- Expansion joint profiles provide a neat, weather tight expansion details or they can be used as part of a fire break and party wall detail.
- They should be used with all of the wood fibre insulation systems where continuous facades of 18m or more are being constructed.
- See the download here for more details
How is it used?
- Expansion joint profiles should be installed prior to the main mesh.
- There should be a continuous channel between the two facades of around 10mm to enable the insertion of the profile.
- Install the profile and check that once in-situ a gap of at least 2mm will be maintained across the profile.
- Remove the profile and apply a thin layer of render to the surface of the insulation boards.
- Re-install the profile and trowel the mesh into the render and leave ready to apply the main mesh and render coat.
- To maintain an even gap down the length of the profile, temporary spacers can be used such as strips of ply.
How much will you need?
- Each length of expansion joint profile is 2.5m long. Pieces can be joined end to end, so just measure the total running length required.
