Some insulation manufacturers recommend a separation/vapour control layer between the insulation board and the screed to prevent interstitial condensation and the seeping of screed into insulation board cracks.

Timber deck finish can also be used – if this is specified a vapour control layer must be included in the design under the timber deck.

Infill walling is the generic name given to a panel that is built in between the floors of the primary structural frame of a building and provides support for the cladding system. Infill walls are considered to be non-load bearing, but they resist wind loads applied to the façade and also support their own weight and that of the cladding.

Acoustically effective – contributes to improved sound reduction benefits as the correct use of Fire Barrier within structural cavities and voids will minimise transmitted sound. Quick installation – the Fire Barrier Systems can be fixed to concrete decks, timber and steel meaning that the cost of installation is reduced, and the speed of.

Timber Frame Cavity Barrier has been designed to prevent passage of fire through concealed voids within the external fabric of a timber frame building.

The Barrier is suitable for both vertical and horizontal positioning to the edge of cavities, around penetrations, at separating compartment lines and to sub-divide cavities.
