Product overview.

Where is it used?

  • UdiBASE Plinth base track is designed to provide a robust edge strong enough to take wear and tear associated with ground level installations.
  • This rail is normally installed just above DPC level on a house or at least 150mm above ground level. 

How is it used?

  • UdiBASE Plinth base track should be fixed either to solid masonry with screws and plugs or by fixing back to the sole plate on timber framed structures.
  • Start by setting out a level at the desired height, either with a string line or a laser level and then simply follow the line with the bottom edge of the track.
  • Once installed make sure to fit the UdiBASE plinth edging strip before the insulation boards to create the perfect drip edge detail.
  • Where there is a gradient in the ground level at the bottom of a wall you can either step the track or slope it with the ground.
  • If it is sloped, cut the first course of boards on and angle to correct the slope so that their top edge is horizontal again.
  • For more information see our how-to videos.

Material in action.

Here you can see the UdiBASE aluminium plinth with the Diffutherm board sat in it and the Baumit render system coming down to the edge. The edge of the plinth is finished with the UdiBASE drip edge profile which forms the drip and also joins adjacent pieces of base track together.
