For many years cavity closers have provided a reliable solution to the problems of thermal bridging at window and door openings as well as preventing the ingress of water tracking around the edges of the framework by acting as a vertical damp proof course, reducing the potential for moisture ingress, condensation and subsequent mould from occuring.
While a traditional cavity closer will act as a thermal break at the reveal opening, they are not enough to act as a cavity barrier and are unsuitable for restricting the passage of fire on their own. This typically applies to fire rated cavity closers also, as this type of closer usually needs to be entirely concealed within masonry to masonry, fully dry-lined detail before the detail as a whole can achieve the tested integrity.
