Proper building of an air gap using guttadrytek® and the subsequent casting to complete the job entails the following phases:

1. Level the foundation soil by adding filling materials, if necessary, to make it homogeneous.

2. Lay a sheet of guttabeta® Star with the star-shaped dimples facing downward, then cast a layer of lean concrete at least 10 cm thick to support the elements. (guttabeta® Star prevents the concrete used to build the foundation screed from seeping in the soil or in the surface preparation layer).

3. Lay guttadrytek®, being careful to formwork the headers using gutta® gettostop. To ensure a more solid structure, it is advisable to build the air gap at the same time as the foundation beams or the trims used to integrate the foundations of existing walls in case of renovations. (In seismic areas, the mandatory connection of the foundations can be carried out by building an air gap equipped with suitable connecting reinforcements between the various foundation beams.)

4. Cast the reinforced screed with electro-welded net, in the size indicated by the engineer who designed the structures, in relation to the intended use of the structure.

N.B.: The air gap system, consisting of a foundation screed and completing concrete positioned on top of guttadrytek® elements is a structure to all intents and purposes, consequently a qualified technician should determine its size and verify the stress transmitted by it to the ground.
