Transition from clinker to plaster: How is it designed correctly?

Not in very many, but in some cases, faces the problem of having to make the transition between a clinkered and a cleaned area. How this is generally done correctly and what to look for, read here.

Adjacent areas

In a few cases, a clinker wall may hit a wall clad with a thermal insulation composite (ETICS) system. The design can be quite different in detail - and thus the necessary execution of the contact edge. Often you will find:

  • a clinker wall projecting from the ETICS
  • a version as a rolling layer at the top clinker row (this is completely sealed)
  • various intermediate layers or edges (possible danger of thermal bridges)

drip edge

Basically, the construction of a drip edge at the ETICS is considered necessary. Even if the clinker wall is sealed from above and protrudes, the ETICS must be protected from below.

In addition, in this case, the water could run over an obliquely running rolling layer at the clinker and run down the clinker facade on the outside until it collects somewhere. This is basically not desirable (for example because of the contamination of the clinker facade).

An outwardly projecting drip edge can be made easily with simple aluminum edging in most cases. Otpisch usually do not look like dripping edges, but technically they are almost always unavoidable.

Sealing the drip edge

As drip edges usually have to be sufficiently sealed, you should also think about it. In most cases, sealing with compressed tape (compressed sealing tapes) is sufficient to seal the drip edge.

Danger of thermal bridges

For most construction and assembly bridges, a thermal bridge risk is excluded. However, if you want to play it safe, use a heat bridge-free base profile made of plastic. Thus, the thermal bridge formation is safely excluded.

Tips & Tricks

In case of uncertainties, always seek the advice of a specialist or an expert. Solutions "on your own" often carry unbelievable damage potential - well meant is not always well done.
