Thermo-loc Platinum+ Cavity Closer

Cavity closers designed to eliminate damp and cold bridging around doors, windows, and sills.

Suitable for between 50mm-150mm cavity sizes. Single profile for 50mm-100mm cavities, double profile for 105mm-150mm cavities, Multi and Check Reveal Multi options also available. 25mm insulation thickness.

Compliant with Building Regulation Approved Documents C, L1 and L2 and satisfies BRE document ‘Thermal Insulation: avoiding risks’.

Uses:

  • To close the cavity at external doors, window jambs and sills
  • To provide thermal insulation and prevent ‘cold bridging’
  • To provide a DPC at external doors, window jambs or sills
  • Suitable for cavities up to 150mm

  • Meets all relevant British Standards
  • Satisfies NHBC standards
  • Rigid profile extruded in UPVC. Platinum expanded Polystyrene insulation 0.031W/mk. Multi 100mm, Multi 100mm CR and fixed cavities. 2.4m lengths.
  • The accredited construction detail published by DCLG require a minimum overlap of 30mm between the window frame and cavity closer.
  • Cut into required lengths allowing jamb section to overlap the sill section by cutting away parts of the fixing flange and to butt the underside of the lintel.
  • For second fix applications, the cavity closer is pushed into the open cavity after building work is complete. The compressible nature of the exposed insulation material is used to create a friction fit in the cavity, or alternatively the insulation can be trimmed to fit using a sharp knife.
    Fixing nails to the flanges are recommended to ensure a secure fit.
  • Cavity insulation should butt tightly to the cavity closer.
  • Establish the cavity width and select the correct cavity closer width to ensure the cavity can be closed.
  • In jamb and sill applications, estimate the total length of cavity closer required and order the correct number of 2.4 metre lengths ensuring no joint pieces.

  • Reference: eg.PP2.4/50 (Thermo-loc Platinum+, Expanded Polystyrene, 2.4m, 50mm)
  • BRE Document ‘Thermal insulation: avoiding risks’ stipulate “When a window or door frame is set back behind the inner face of a dense outer masonry leaf, it should overlap an insulated closer by a minimum of 30mm for BRE exposure zones Sheltered to Severe; but fully rebated (check reveals) for zones Very Severe”.
  • With reference to insulation, the products in this range do not use, contain or produce Urea Formaldehyde, CFCs or indeed any of the so-called soft CFCs, ie. HCFCs & HFAs. They have an ozone depletion potential of zero and global warming potential of less than 5 and complies with BS EN 13163.
