DuoSeal

The sealing plug for wet areas.

Your advantages at a glance

  • The DuoSeal completely seals drill holes in tiles without additional sealing compound and thus prevents structural damage caused by moisture in the building material.
  • The DuoSeal is ideally suited for tiled surfaces which are exposed to very frequent splash water and temporarily accumulated water. In any case, please take note of the general national regulations on the use of plugs in wet areas.
  • The universal plug can be installed gently on tiles with very little effort.
  • Its red component ensures a secure hold in all building materials. Thus, the DuoSeal achieves the same load values as conventional nylon plugs.
  • The stainless steel screw included in the set is ideally suited for installation in wet areas and avoids rusting.
  • The soft plastic rim closes the drill hole completely and flexibly adapts to the shape of the attachment part.

Product features:

  1. The grey expansion wing supports the expansion and offers additional safety for the nylon main body.
  2. The red main body made of high-quality nylon automatically activates the optimum function principle (spreading, folding, knotting) depending on the building material for best hold.
  3. The soft plastic rim closes the drill hole completely and flexibly adapts to the shape of the attachment part.
  4. The grooves in the plug shaft compensate for unevenness in the drill hole to ensure the sealing function.
  5. The anti-rotation feature prevents the plug from rotating for correct function.
  6. The combination of soft and hard materials achieves an optimally matched screw-in and tightening torque.
  7. Matching shaft area for a watertight sealing of the drill hole.
  8. The stainless steel screw included in the set is ideally suited for installations in wet areas and avoids rusting.
  9. Drive in TX for installation with standard tools.

Description of the water impact classes.

The new waterproofing standard DIN 18534 has been in force since July 2017 and regulates the waterproofing of floor and wall surfaces in interior rooms. The relevant areas of application include surfaces exposed to service and cleaning water, such as bathrooms, shower facilities, swimming pool surrounds, commercially used kitchens, and production or commercial areas. The DIN 18534 distinguishes between four water exposure classes: W0-I (surfaces with low water exposure), W1-I (surfaces with moderate water exposure), W2-I (surfaces with high water exposure), W3-I (surfaces with very high water exposure).

Sealing standards in wet areas.

Reliable sealing in wet areas is obligatory according to the regulations of the DIN 18534 and ETAG 022.Up to now, these drill holes  have always been additionally sealed with silicone or other sealing compound at great expense. This not only causes additional costs, but is also very time-consuming. In addition, silicone does not comply with the above-mentioned sealing standards, as this is only a temporary solution and joints must be repaired regularly.
With the fischer DuoSeal and the matching stainless steel screw, drill holes in wet areas can be sealed watertight for the first time without additional sealing compound. The plastic plug was tested independently by the Testing and Certification Institute of the Säure Fliesner Vereinigung e. V.. The watertightness was confirmed for the ETAG 022 and water exposure class W3-I based on the DIN 18534.
Taking into account the national and international sealing standards in wet areas the DuoSeal in combination with the enclosed screw is therefore ideally suited for applications in commercial, private and public wet areas, which are often exposed to frequent splashing and temporary accumulation of water.  In any case, please take note of the general national regulations on the use of plugs in wet areas.
