Movement joint DUO-TEXWith 2 x 12.5 cm mesh

Die APU-Movement joint DUO-TEX W50

The APU movement joint DUO-TEX is used in compound heat insulation systems for forming vertical movement joints and in dry wall construction for compensating minor structural element movements.

The profile has two perforated plaster bars, welded to each of which is a mesh strip. Between the profiles there is a co-extruded, flexible TPE loop, which can absorb smaller structural element movements. It is covered with protective film to protect it during the plastering work. Thanks to the flexible lug, the profile can be used on flat surfaces and inner corners. The raised edge of the plaster take-up area is available in two different versions (3 mm and 6 mm plaster thickness). In the course of the work, the profile can additionally be fixed in the insulating material using the plug connectors provided (Z13). The area where pieces abut must be sealed off using a suitable sealant (e.g., PUR sealing strip, Butyl sealing strip, or similar). After the plastering work is completed and protective film is removed, a clean termination of the plaster is created.
