Pointering / Pointmastering

WHAT IS POINTERING/POINTMASTERING?

It's a joining technique using the Easypointer® (joint pin). The 'Pointer' is also used for simultaneously raking out and piercing the joint. This creates a so-called deepened joint, while also giving a nice flat level mortar. The pointer is increasingly being used for aesthetic, economical, as well as architectural reasons.

AESTHETIC, POINTMASTERING DELIVERS MORE VIVID BRICKWORK

​It's aesthetically pleasing because it creates livelier masonry due to the shadow effect that occurs. It is often used on houses and buildings constructed in the so-called 1930s style. Although in the 30s it was simply added, this style of architecture lends itself very well to the pointer.

ECONOMICAL, BRICKLAYER CAN CONTINUOUSLY USE THE POINTER

The economical aspect is threefold. Namely; the use of the Easypointer® is a continuous operation. That is to say, after (part of) the bricklaying has been set, 'pointering' can go on uninterrupted (of course as long as the mortar has not yet hardened). The bricklayer can use the pointer continuously, there is no need to stop in between to grab new materials, such as joint mortar for grouting. This saves time. The second point is that after pointering the work is done, because there is no need for additional finishing. Another timesaver. And the third point is that the aesthetics of the building are positively influenced by the use of the pointer, which in turn can increase its value. This can not be expressed in hard numbers, of course, but in general, the walls that have been polished are considered more aesthetically pleasing than walls which have not been 'pointered'.

BETTER ARCHITECTURAL BRICKWORK

​With pointering or piercing, the mortar is compacted in addition to raking it out and smoothing. The mortar is pressed closer together, the so-called compacting. This makes the brickwork more weather resistant and the end result is also firmer, resulting in a sturdier wall.

BENEFITS OF USING THE POINTER/POINTMASTER

  • ​The joint becomes harder than with traditional bricklaying.
  • You get a firmer wall.
  • You save half the time and, therefore, money.
  • In general, a pierced wall is more aesthetically pleasing.
  • Possible increase in the value of the building.
