Fit Rockwool Cavity by compressing between the two rows of wall ties to form a clean and tight butt jointed course. The bottom row of ties should be at 450 mm centres. 3. It is essential that all joints between Rockwool Cavity batts are clean and tightly butted. The risk of condensation is also reduced and intermittent heating systems will be more effective. the width of the first course of batts can be cut to suit the height of the next row of wall ties. 2. If necessary. * preferably by at least 150mm Rockwool Cavity showing Rockwool edge and floor insulation . 4. Raise the second leaf to the same level as the batts. The installation of the batts should commence below the DPC* to minimise cold bridging. Ties must be inclined downwards towards the outer leaf. The lightweight insulation batts considerably reduce heat loss without permitting water transmission from the outer to the inner leaf. Wall tie drips should be located centrally in the Batts. FULLY FILLED & FULLY PROVEN Rockwool Cavity provides a completely reliable and cost effective ADVANTAGES • BBA certified for all exposure zones • Acts as a cavity barrier • Water repellent • Excellent thermal and fire insulation • Superior fit against blockwork INSTALLATION GUIDE 1.eg wall tie centres.

FIRE SAFETY FOR CAVITIES Part of the Firepro range Rockwool TCB Cavity Barrier is a polyethylene sleeved Rockwool strip engineered to provide fire safety for timber frames. Rockwool TCB’s have been fire tested to 60 minutes integrity and 30 minutes insulation and is used to provide a half hour cavity barrier as defined in Section 33 of the Building Regulations Technical Guidance Document B. Joints between TCB’s must be closely butted. Standard TCB Cavity Barrier comprises a strip of Rockwool inserted into a translucent red polyethylene sleeve incorporating two flanges designed for fixing. . These fixings should be located at maximum 150mm centres in both horizontal and vertical applications. TCB ADVANTAGES • Reduced installation time • Meets Building Regulations requirements • Simple to install and fix • Water repellent • Maintenance free • Backed by Fire Test information INSTALLATION Fixing of the TCB Cavity Barrier to the inner leaf is carried out only at the flanges using non-corrosive staples or clout nails. metal frames and traditional masonry cavities. At door and window jambs. the horizontal barrier should overlap the vertical barrier to ensure a close butted joint is maintained between both barriers.
