The PLINTH Thermal Insulation Profile EPS is made from EPS-F (expanded polystyrene) and offers the best possible heat and moisture protection on front doors and balcony doors made from wood, wood/aluminium, aluminium and plastic. The PLINTH profile is sturdy, durable and is exceptionally quick and easy to fit. The PLINTH Thermal Insulation Profile EPS provides thermal insulation and reduces the scope of conventional plastic profiles to form thermal bridges. It is dimensionally stable, 100% free of HCFCs, HFCs and HBCDs.
PLINTH thermal insulation permanently eliminates energy weak points on components installed on floor slabs and enhances indoor comfort. Using the Plinth Thermal Insulation Profile EPS prevents damage caused by moisture and mould.
AREA OF APPLICATION
The PLINTH Thermal Insulation Profile EPS was specially developed for fitting as a substructure thermal insulation profile under thresholds.
By virtue of the innovative dovetail joint, the profiles can be positively interlocked, to create any desired length. The dovetail joint reduces the amount of waste, possibly even avoiding waste altogether, while the 1,175 mm length of the individual profiles is ideal for transport and storage (Europallet).
Properly made sealing of the PLINTH profile offers sufficient protection against moisture, particularly for:
LENGTH AND HIGHT ADJUSTMENT
The waste-free joining of the PLINTH thermal insulation profile brings clear advantages for the fitter. Thanks to their low weight and compact dimensions, the profiles are unbeatably quick and straightforward to process.
With the tongue and groove joint, the two PLINTH profiles which are to be joined have a groove on one edge and a tongue on the other edge and can be coupled in height one under the other.
SYSTEM ADHESIVE HYBRID POLYMER POWER FIX WHITE
POWER FIX is a neutral cure, single-component, permanently flexible adhesive on a hybrid-polymer basis.
The PLINTH Thermal Insulation Profile EPS is sealed against the frame of the structural element with a pasty polymer sealant Hybrid Polymer Power Fix and secured mechanically with self-tapping screws.
Refer to the Hybrid Polymer Power Fix white product data sheet for further information.
