Expanded polystyrene (EPS) cavity closer, designed for closing cavities around openings in masonry, timber frame and steel frame wall constructions.

Features and benefits:

  • Available in two profile sizes to fit cavity widths between 50–150 mm.
  • Easy to install, with cut-to-size indicators included for guidance.
  • Fully ridged polyvinyl chloride (PVC) cavity closure.
  • Helps to prevent cold bridging.
  • Manufactured from recycled materials.
  • Reduces the risk of condensation, mould and moisture migration across the cavity.
  • Manufactured in accordance with BS EN 13163: 2012 +A1: 2015, and compliant with the relevant building regulations - consult manufacturer for further details.

Applications:

Suitable for use in both new-build and refurbishment projects. Can be installed via the following methods:

  • Tack to window frame, built-in.
  • Built-in as work progresses (friction fitting).
  • Installed after the reveal has been constructed by fixing to the inner leaf, using grab adhesive.

See manufacturer's literature for detailed installation instructions.
