Küberit edge and expansion joint profile with fire protection

Wide edge joints by themselves are a challenge for the floor contractor. When one protects fire protection joints, for example, the regulations stipulate wide insulation strips made of mineral wool or mineral fibre. This can be a challenge for floor fitters because neither filler nor adhesive may be applied to these strips. As a result, the floor covering has no grip and sinks downward in the joint area. As a result, the joint between the wall and the floor covering automatically becomes larger. With the new Küberit edge joint profiles, types 985 G - 988 G and the expansion joint profiles 985 S - 988 S, wide fire protection joints up to 20 mm can be bridged safely and permanently for fully bonded floor coverings.
