Genesis PVC Movement & Perimeter Joints

From £6.89 £5.74

Genesis MLB is a light-duty PVC movement joint designed to protect the edge of the floor covering from light traffic (e.g. foot traffic). One of the flanges which is primarily designed to sit under the floor covering can be removed by hand on site by snapping along the V-shaped groove in the extrusion. This now modified profile with one flange is perfect as a perimeter joint providing a 10mm cushion around the entire installation between the floor covering and the wall. The profiles are also suited for exterior use, e.g. on facades or balconies.

  • Superior edge protection
  • Highly durable blend of PVC/Rubber infill offering protection to the edge of a floor covering

  • Suited for exterior use, e.g. on facades or balconiesBritish Standard BS 5385 recommends that a joint should be able to absorb 20% of the width of the joint in movement accommodation

How do I install this product?

  1. Ensure the correct depth of profile is selected according to the tile depth.

  2. Using a suitable notched trowel spread tile adhesive onto the floor in accordance with the manufacturer's guidelines.

  3. Bed the profile firmly into the adhesive in the correct location - make sure that the adhesive penetrates the holes in the flange.

  4. Spread the adhesive over the anchoring legs and bed the tiles firmly into the adhesive (best practice is for the profile to be approximately 1mm lower than the Tile).

  5. A grout joint should be left between the tile and the profile

Where to use

Movement Joints must be installed in certain areas and positions to prevent tiles from debonding from the substrate, industry guidelines suggest that the maximum field should be no more than 10m in each direction but in practice, depending on the individual applications it tends to between 5-8m.

Movement joints must be installed directly above any changes in substrate or movement joints/gaps in the substrate.
