Why should the starter track be used before mounting insulation boards?

Written by on .

The starter track (or base track / plinth track) is a first step in the process of mounting the insulation. This function is provided by specially profiled aluminium or plastic tracks. They are often universal regardless of the insulation thickness, but you can see the variety of sizes on our website.


Base track is a component of the thermal insulation system, which is helpful in a proper positioning of an insulation. What is more, it protects the lower part of styrofoam boards from rodents, precludes airflow between the insulation and wall, and also makes it resistant to the mechanical damages.
