Coat dowels: what are they for?
The wall tiles are fundamental building elements to reduce the energy consumption of homes. In fact, these construction products are a solution to the needs of thermal insulation and protection from atmospheric agents. It is therefore not just about economic savings, but also about resources.
Coat dowels: how do they work?
As already mentioned, a properly made thermal coat insulates the house and allows great savings. When creating an external thermal coat on the wall for thermal insulation, specific dowels must be used for fixing the insulating panels.
An external insulation plug is normally made of an expansion body with an internal pin and a disk of such diameter as to be able to transfer the weight to the support material.
Which dowels to use?
Each panel has its own piece. For example, the fixing of insulating panels in external insulation systems in expanded polystyrene, cork and polyurethane, we recommend a screw anchor in galvanized steel. For concrete panels try a steel dowel with multiple attachments. For fixing light loads such as skirting boards, cornices, mailboxes, mosquito nets, etc. you can safely use cheaper anchors. When properly fixed, the wall plugs remain welded virtually forever.
How to remove the dowels from the wall?
A little secret is to use a corkscrew or a screwdriver. So you can remove them in one go and without compromising the integrity of the wall. Place the tip on the hole in the dowel and push the screwdriver into the wall - the dowel should fall inside. Apply the putty with a spatula evenly and once the hole is filled remove the extra putty.
In the case of a metal dowel that does not want to come out, we advise you to cut it with the cutter or to first remove the screw and then tap the brass cone that keeps it dilated. At the end you can take it out with pliers.
To fill in the holes left by the dowels, use wall putty and let it dry until hard.
The coat plugs must also be CE marked
The performance of the insulation plugs affects the construction of the building in which they are inserted. The European Regulation CPR 305/2011 establishes that the insulation plugs must be CE marked and the European Assessment Document (EAD) indicates the criteria to be adopted to perform tests on the product.
