EWI-64410 Aluminium Starter Track is required when installing EWI insulation systems. The starter track sits just above the DPC layer (near the bottom of the wall) and acts as a stable, protective ledge on which you can build up the insulation boards.
The aluminium starter track is the most basic starter track available from EWIStore and gives great value for money when looking to install EWI onto properties. With easy install and great durability, this starter track is a firm favourite of installers up and down the country. The aluminium starter track is available in several different widths: 50mm, 70mm, 90mm, 100mm – obviously pick the width of starter track that matches the thickness of insulation you have gone for.
Please be aware that the EWI-64410 does not come with any mesh attached to the leading edge. We recommend buying this starter track with clip on profile (EWI-64650) which clips onto the front edge and can then be meshed into the basecoat layer tying the starter track in with the rest of the system.
The basic starter track comes in lengths of 2.5 linear metres, and is installed at the lowest point of installation in order to provide a starting base for the insulation system. For external solid wall insulation it is paramount to start off with an even base, and this aluminium track is the perfect way to ensure this. The starter track also gives the insulation protection from below against water ingress and physical damage.
Aluminium coming in lengths of 2.5 metres and is available in 4 different lengths depending on the thickness of insulation. It is ideal for quick and easy installation. We recommend fixing the starter track to the wall at 300mm centres.
