Novojunta® Pilastra, the perfect solution for facade angles
Facades suffer expansions and contractions, caused mainly by thermal gradients, seasonal and daily, which the facade orientation and the coating colour influence on. Therefore it is necessary the installation of expansion joints and elements that permit the movement and decrease the shear efforts between support and coating, avoiding distortions in the installation.
In the other side, the weakening of the tiles on making the angle is the main cause of breaks and premature ageing of the tiled corners. Therefore, they are fragile zones and sensible to the mechanical efforts.
