When should I reinforce the legs of the Staenis grid?

The reinforcement of the Staenis grid depends on the filler to be used. For example, nothing extra needs to be done for load-bearing fillers.

Fill in the Staenis grid legs with a cement or lime mortar. When using non-load-bearing fillers such as glass wool insulation, you should always reinforce the legs with a cement or lime mortar.

When using load-bearing dry fillers, such as levelling or aerated concrete granules, you do not have to reinforce the legs of the Staenis grid or install extra legs.

When using non-load-bearing fillers such as glass wool or cork granules insulation, you should:

  • or 8 extra legs per m² to be placed in the installed Staenis grid. This increases the possible load by 100 kg per leg, resulting in a total load capacity of 1300 kg/m².
  • either by reinforcing the legs with a cement or lime mortar. For this it is best to support the centres of the battens with some mortar, in order to create a solid floor.
