Cavalok Cavity Closers In Steel & Timber Frame Construction
"there is a growing market for steel and timber-framed buildings due to the speed, and reduced cost, of construction. Frames can be constructed off-site to exacting standards, ready for delivery and rapid assembly on site.
This construction method requires a different approach to cavity closer formers as the opening is already partially formed. In addition a means of fire protecting the cavity at the opening is required."
The Cavalok solution:
Cavalok's insulated cavity closers deliver far superior thermal efficiency than the alternative timber stops or metal flanges around openings. This ensures the great thermal benefits of other aspects of frame construction are not lost by creating thermal bridges at junctions.
Using Cavalok Framehangers the cavity closers can be fitted directly to steel or timber frames in the factory. This patented bracket can help to speed up the building process even further, by fitting windows while the building frame is still in the factory. On site, cavity closers are cantilevered from the internal frame using the Framehangers, allowing the final cladding or brick skin to be completed much later, if required.
