Select the required Triotherm+ depth for your project (70mm, 100mm and 120mm are the most common depths for windows).
Decide whether you want to use the thermal brackets just for the support at the bottom or to build them all around the window opening.
Install the brackets to the clean and dry masonry by using the PowerFix Sealant and secure the thermal brackets mechanically with concrete screws, as described in the installation manual.
When placing the window frame to the bracket, please put the frame into a bead of PowerFix Sealant, to secure the joint between the thermal bracket and the window frame.
Select the required Triotherm+ height for your project (180mm, 200mm and 230mm are the most common heights for door thresholds).
The installation needs to be done prior the door installation.
You can either bond the Triotherm+ to the existing subfloor or an existing upstand by using PowerFix Sealant.
Make sure that you have calculated the right height for your thermal bracket, to allow to have the door threshold installed flush with your finishing floor level. Please note that the most doors will have supports underneath their finishing door threshold and therefore the thermal bracket needs to be lowered. It can be cut easily by saw.
When installing the Triotherm+ thermal bracket, please seal the external joints towards the floor and the walls, to prevent an ingress of water. Smaller joints can be filled with PowerFix sealant, whilst wider gaps should be filled with PICHLER® WaterFIX (watertight foam).
When placing the door on top of the thermal bracket, please put the frame into a bead of PowerFix Sealant, to secure the joint between the thermal bracket and the window frame.
Once the door has been installed, please apply Belgacoat LR as watertight tanking on the outside over the complete Triotherm+ window bracket and the surrounding areas.
Please don´t forget to seal the dovetail joints and junctions to the cavity with appropriate air tightness tapes on the inside.
