Yes, the product is specially designed to be installed in existing clinker chamois. Retrofitting can also be done by laymen, as no special tools or expertise are required.

We offer 2 different standard sizes:

Both versions can be used for a joint width between 1 and 3 cm.

The FUGITTE joint grilles therefore fit for all clinker formats.
The normal version with 8cm height fits:

  • DF = Thin format = 52mm high joints
  • NF = normal format = 71mm high joints
  • RF = Imperial format = 61mm or 65mm high joints
  • OF = Oldenburg size = 52mm high joints
  • Module format = 52mm high joints
  • Long format DF = 52mm high joints
  • Long format NF = 71mm high joints

For the following formats, please use the larger version with up to 13cm joint height:

  • 2DF = 2x thin format = 113mm high joints
  • 3DF = 3x thin format = 113mm high joints

If you would like special requests, such as a different format, we can also offer you FUGITTE made to measure and as metre goods too.

No, you don't need a special tool. You only need scissors to adjust the height of the joint grille to the height of the respective joint. In addition, a small screwdriver or a similar tool is well suited to easily adjust the joint grille after insertion.

The FUGITTE joint grilles are made of plastic. They offer the advantage that the material is flexible and can adapt to the joints.

The ventilation grille for the butt joints is gray (dark gray to anthracite). It is also only available in this one color. The FUGITTE ventilation grille can be installed either visibly or invisibly. If you insert it deep into the joints, it is no longer visible at first glance and is therefore invisible. So you don't see the color. This is particularly recommended for light colored joints. In the case of dark joints, the gray ventilation grille usually fits well into the overall picture and is barely visible even with visible installation. You can decide at your house during installation which variant suits you optically more.

It varies from house to house. You actually have to count the number of butt joints. It is important that you protect all butt joints in your house with the FUGITTE joint grille. Animals such as mice and bees immediately look for another way if they are disturbed by the joint grille. If the next joint is free, use it as an entrance.

The FUGITTE joint grilles are made of 1mm plastic. Basically, for example, mice and rats would be able to damage this material with their teeth. However, long-term tests have shown that the animals usually take the path of least resistance and do not try to damage the butt joint vent to get behind the clinker. They don't smell any food there that would make it worthwhile to do the work.
In contrast to metal butt joint fans, this product has the advantage that it is easy to install and very inexpensive.

If you use the joint grille in a U-shape, it expands against the stones by itself and thus sits firmly in the joint between the stones. Especially if you do not put the joint grille directly flush with the stones, but rather bring them a little deeper into the joint, it is almost impossible to get them out of the joint again without tools, such as a small screwdriver.

Animals usually walk the least resistance when they're not sniffing food. Long-term tests have shown that the grilles remain in the joint for a long time and that there are no problems with this.

The FUGITTE joint grilles are weatherproof and designed to protect your house in the long term. The material is also generally UV-resistant. However, the duration of the UV resistance of the material varies greatly depending on local circumstances. We therefore recommend inserting the joint grille a little deeper into the joints. In this way, they become virtually invisible and are also protected from direct sunlight.

We also recommend regular inspection of the joints.

Basically, it doesn't matter how you insert the joint grilles into the joints of the clinker. It is important that the joint is completely closed. However, we recommend cutting the gitin in height appropriately and then pressing it easily together and inserting U-shaped into the joint. This has the advantage that the joint grid sits well, as it expands on its own to both sides. In addition, optimal ventilation is ensured, as the grille is not double and thus the ventilation enstates are disturbed.
