New Knauf cavity barrier makes life easier for brickies

The Rocksilk RainScreen FFCB (Fixed-face Cavity Barrier) is the first cavity barrier that is fixed to the face of the insulation and built in to masonry façades during constructio n

The patented non-combustible solution is part of a certified system that provides fire resistance for up to 90 minutes insulation and integrity in the residual cavities of buildings with masonry façades.

Luke Davies, Product Manager – Rock Mineral Wool, at Knauf Insulation said: “Unlike other products, our cavity barrier is fixed to the face of the insulation as the brickwork is built, so the insulation doesn’t need to be cut post-installation.

“This means it’s quicker and easier for brickwork contractors to install, reduces waste on site and gives architects reassurance that performance won’t be compromised by the creation of unintentional air gaps during installation.”
