Our EWI-64206 Premium uPVC starter track allows insulation to be installed upon a solid footing. The starter track is 2m in length and is attached to the wall using screws and a spirit level to ensure it is installed flat.
Once installed on the wall it offers a strong plinth on which the external wall insulation system can be installed. Being made from uPVC plastic, this starter track is not impacted by thermal bridging (like the aluminium alternatives).
This premium starter track has other benefits too – firstly it protects the bottom of the insulation system and helps to prevent water ingress. Secondly the mesh on the leading edge of the starter track allows it to tie into the external wall insulation basecoat layer providing a much stronger system. Finally, there is a bellcast on the bottom of the leading edge of the starter track which helps divert water away from the EWI system.
EWI-64206 Premium uPVC starter track is used for any insulation thickness between 50mm and 90mm and is 2m in length.
The starter track provides the insulation a solid and level base to be installed on. It also provides protection for the base of the EPS or mineral wool insulation boards. Since the starter track is made from a plastic material, once installed there is no thermal bridging. It also comes with PVC bellcast beading and fibreglass mesh to all the starter track to tie in with the rest of the external wall insulation system.
The Premium starter track is actually comprised of two separate components – the ‘female’ section is attached to the wall and the separate male section slides into this. This allows this particular starter track to house different thicknesses of insulation from 100mm up to 160mm.
The uPVC starter track is installed onto the walls at the lowest point of insulation (but always above the DPC). It provides a level structure that the insulation boards can be installed onto.
