Starter track position on New build EWI

    I am building extension to my house att the minute. 9 inch block on flat with 200mm Eps external.

    I see from Kores website to place starter track 150mm above DPC.

    But I don't see why I can't have it at the same level as the DPC, which comes out at FFL.

    Any advice?

    As it's an extension, are you working off the new-build or retrofit design guide? Is the original house also being wrapped?

    The original will be wrapped.

    Working. Off new build design

    I see from Kores website to place starter track 150mm above DPC.

    The "starter track" being the galv steel base rail as identified as item 15 on page 4 of the below?

    If so, then I only see this in regards to the DPC and plinth…

    …that would imply that the galv steel rail starts at the DPC, no?

    Oh, very good 10-10-20.

    I don't know what I was looking at now. Must have been a retrofit guide perhaps.

    Thank you very much.

    Does anyone know where to buy this starter track and glues for the boards?

    Am in North Longford.
