What is a cavity closer used for?
In a nutshell, a cavity closer acts as a seal. It protects a building from water, damp and condensation from entering the cavity wall. Cavity closers also prevent heat from being lost through any gaps, meaning they can improve the overall energy efficiency and thermal retention ratings of residential and commercial properties alike.
Cavity closers are used to:
- Prevent damp and condensation from entering a building
- Reduce loss of heat and improve energy efficiency, prevention of cold bridging
- Improve fire safety, using our FlameBlok fire rated option
Cavity closers can be used in a number of different construction projects. Common projects that utilise cavity closers include the use of masonry, timber frames and steel frame systems.
Do you need cavity closers?
Cavity closers are an essential component in any modern building’s construction. Ideal for improving energy efficiency and thermal retention ratings, cavity closers seal a building by preventing the ingress of water, damp and condensation through the cavity wall. Depending on the type of cavity closer you use, they can also improve the fire safety of a building.
What are cavity closers made from?
The material your cavity closer is made from will depend on the type of closer you choose, as well as the unique specifications of the building and cavity walls. Most modern cavity closers are engineered from uPVC with a durable, fully-insulated core for heightened energy efficiency and thermal retention.
Are cavity closers necessary?
Cavity closers play an essential role in the construction of modern buildings. Acting as an insulating seal, they prevent any external water from entering a cavity wall. As a result, cavity closers can increase the energy efficiency rating of your building, by providing a barrier which effectively prevents heat loss while also stopping any damp or condensation from entering. Furthermore, the FlameBlok, fire rated variants, can also improve the fire safety of domestic and commercial properties alike.
What is the purpose of cavity closers?
The primary purpose of a cavity closer is to provide insulation and improve fire safety. Ideal for installation in both commercial and residential properties, cavity closers act as an insulating barrier and play an instrumental role in preventing heat loss. By keeping external damp and condensation out and keeping any heat in, your property will benefit from warmer, drier, more comfortable internal spaces and heightened energy efficiency.
