Good morning! 🌞
This time we share with you the work we are doing with our ✨VIPEQ®🤩✨ projected cork in this skirting board in CANADA.
The baseboards in buildings and facades.
The truth is that the plinth is an element that acts as a foundation base on which to support the rest of the building, it is an element that corrects the unevenness of the ground, separates the building from the ground and serves as a rigid support to the rest of the elements.
We can distinguish between two types of skirting boards based on their function.
The foundation plinth. The foundation plinth is an element that acts as a foundation base. Traditionally it has consisted of a large volume of stone that could be hollow or solid
The plinth as an element of separation from the ground. Although the plinth seems to be born from the need to support the building on a rigid and flat platform, its function is discovered almost immediately as an element that helps to protect itself from humidity, dirt, etc …
This function as a protection element is maintained even when the foundations evolve into isolated elements that are independent from the rest of the building, making the plinth as a foundation element unnecessary. It is then that the plinth loses its massive character to become light elements that only intend to protect the lower part of the facades.
It seeks to isolate and protect the facades from moisture by capillarity that may rise from the ground, from the action of rain and dirt, we achieve this by applying projected cork ✨VIPEQ®🤩✨ an ecological material♻️, guaranteeing its durability a minimum of 10 years 🛡
