Step By Step Baumit StarTrack - Thermal Insulation Anchoring

Baumit StarTrack
External Wall Insulation Anchoring - Step By Step Guide

Why to use adhesive anchors?

  • Replaces mechanical anchoring by expansion anchors

  • Ensures additional fixation of the original plaster

  • Creates additional adhesive points key bound with the bearing masonry

  • Saves energy, costs and time

  • No thermal bridges

  • No stains in the place of expansion anchor discs

  • Drilling to a wall not to an insulant – drilling without any surprises

  • Reduction of construction time of the thermal insulation system

  • One type of anchors for different thickness of the insulant

  • For new constructions as well as for reconstructions

  • Especially suitable for bigger thicknesses of the insulant – low-energy and passive houses

  • For anchoring of polystyrene insulating boards

Step by step procedure

Osadenie zakladacej lišty

1. The base must be supporting, clean, dry, free from salt blooms and free parts. Before installation of the adhesive anchor Baumit StarTrack, install a plinth profile. At installation, maintain the horizontal installation plane. The plinth profile is fastened using screws and fasteners numbering 3 pcs/m.
