6mm Clip-on Profile for Starter Track
Our 6mm clip-on profile is used in external wall insulation systems to help create a drip bead at the bottom of the render system to help drive water away from the insulation system.
The clip-on profile is 2.5m in length and clips directly on to the leading edge of the aluminium starter track. The clip-on profile is compatible with all thicknesses of aluminium starter track.
The 6mm clip-on profile has rigid PVC plastic creating the 45-degree angle drip and 10cm of mesh that travels up the face of the insulation. The mesh is embedded within the basecoat of the thin coat render system, thereby tying the bead / starter track to the rest of the external wall insulation system.
The 45-degree drip ensures that any water travelling down the final render surface will not travel back under the starter track towards the wall at the bottom of the system – instead the water is directed away from the external wall insulation system completely.
The 45-degree drip on the front of the clip-on profile also creates a clean finish at the bottom of the rendered surface.
