Thermo-loc FRstop Cavity Stop Sock for Timber Frame

Fire-rated thermal and acoustic cavity stop sock designed to restrict the spread of smoke and flames within external masonry.

1-hour fire integrity and Class O surface spread of flame classification.

FRSTOP will also further minimise the effect of flanking noise pollution at wall junctions.

Uses:

  • To restrict the spread of smoke and flames within external masonry
  • To further minimise the effect of flanking noise pollution at wall junctions

  • FRstop cavity stop socks are lengths of low resin, non-combustible, rockfibre mineral wool, sleeved in 50-micron polythene for on-site weather protection
  • 1-hour fire integrity
  • Polythene encapsulated cavity stop sock
  • Available in standard widths of 50, 75, 100, 125 and 150mm
  • Special cavity widths are available on request
  • Meets the requirements of the Robust Detail, Part B and NHBC Standards
  • Flanged stopsock for timber frame applications
  • Satisfies all NHBC requirements
  • Complies with all relevant Building Regulations
  • Meets all relevant British Standards
  • Non-combustible to BS476 : Part 4 1970 (1984) Class 1
  • Surface spread of flame to BS476 part 7 1987
  • Class O to the Building Regulations
  • Manufactured using rockwool mineral wool.
  • Rockfibre uses no CFCs, HCFCs in the manufacturing process.
  • Thermal conductivity of Rockfibre insulation 0.037w/mK.
  • FRstop must be compressed and friction fit with timber frame and fixed through flange. For vertical applications both flanges are fixed to timber frame. For horizontal applications only the top flange should be fixed. Fix flanges using clout nails at 150mm centres.
  • The plastic coating only offers weather resistance and offers no application performance. Any joints should be tightly butted together with no gaps. The stop sock must fill the whole cavity width and cavity insulation worked around.
  • To calculate quantities, divide the overall length of the required cavity wall run by 1.2m, allow an additional unit for each corner for cutting.
  • Always round up to the next whole number.
  • Determine and stipulate the cavity width that the FRstop needs to suit.
