Protec CPGV – drip profiles for balcony by Profilpas
The wide range of Profilpas products is now enhanced with a new model that helps drain both on the surface level and under the flooring. Protec CPGV is a series of drip profiles for balconies specially made for the protection and finishing of the outer edges of terraces.

Other eyelets in the projecting part allow the water filtered under the tiles to drain away.

The balcony drip profiles Protec CPGV made by Profilpas provide considerable advantages: among these, the best quality / price ratio as compared with conventional drip stones or ceramics and versatility and adaptability for joining to cement sheathing for waterproofing under the tiles. In addition, the product supplied in 2.7 ml bars is easier and faster to install than a normal corner L-shaped ceramic – resulting in substantially lower labour costs.
