Long-lasting insulation and protection
Also known as window formers and frame formers, cavity closers play an essential role in the building process; sealing off the cavity between the brickwork and the blockwork at the structural openings. A byproduct of this is that it protects the building from damp or condensation from entering the cavity. Furthermore, cavity closers stop heat from exiting a building through gaps in the cavity wall.

What is a cavity closer?
As the name suggests, a cavity closer is a crucial component to act as a seal at structural openings. The main purpose of a cavity closer is to seal off the cavity between the brickwork and the blockwork at the structural openings; a byproduct of this is that it protects the building from damp or condensation from entering the cavity. Furthermore, cavity closers stop heat from exiting a building through gaps in the cavity wall.
Fire-rated cavity closers can also be used to prevent the spread of fire for up to one hour.
As a result, they play an important role in insulating residential and commercial properties alike.
Are cavity closers required?
It is a requirement of ‘Part L’ building regulations that where there is a cavity wall, all structural openings must be closed off. The easiest way to achieve this is by using our pre-formed cavity closers during the building process.
Cavity closers play a crucial role in sealing residential and commercial properties from the impacts of adverse weather. If sealed correctly, they can be effective as a damp proof barrier. Fire-rated cavity closers can also be used to prevent the spread of fire for up to one hour.
What is the difference between a cavity closer and a cavity barrier?
Cavity closers and cavity barriers are both used to seal internal cavities found within the walls of residential homes and commercial properties. A cavity closer is only used around reveals, such as a window or door. A cavity barrier can be used anywhere within a cavity and is designed to stop and restrict smoke or flames from spreading within internal walls. Although fire-resistant cavity closers are available on the market, most are installed for the purpose of preventing water vapour and damp from entering a cavity wall.
