1 thermal cavity closers

2 cavity closers thermal bridging solutions from Manthorpe THERMAL BRIDGE THERMAL BREAK Poorly insulated door and window reveals can lead to significant heat loss and damp issues. Manthorpe s Thermal Cavity Closers provide a versatile solution to cold bridging problems. They also act as a vertical dpc by closing off the cavity without the need to return the blockwork. HEAT LOSS In an effort to improve energy efficiency, modern building practices measure the thermal performance of every aspect of a buildings construction, the thermal resistance of a building assembly such as a wall or floor is referred to as its R-Value. As buildings are seldom built from a single material, the total R-Value of an assembly is the sum of the resistance of the individual construction elements added together. R TOTAL = R 1 (12MM PLASTERBOARD) + R 2 (INTERNAL BLOCKWORK) + R 3 (CAVITY INSULATION) + R 4 (CAVITY AIR GAP) + R 5 (EXTERNAL BRICKWORK) In most aspects of cavity wall constructions, the building elements are sandwiched together to provide multiple barriers to prevent the heat escaping from the property, as shown above. Heat must pass all the way through one material before it gets to the next, so any heat that is blocked by one material is blocked the rest of the way. Thermal bridging In certain details however, such as around window and door reveals, a single element supporting a window frame can span the distance from inside to outside. These details can create what is known as a thermal bridge, where heat bypasses the layers of the insulated cavity wall and takes the path of least resistance across the single material, creating a cold bridge. Thermal bridging can be avoided by placing insulation between the elements of the component that is creating the cold bridge, providing a thermal break. The Manthorpe range of cavity closers offers an economical solution to closing the cavity at window and door reveals while also solving cold bridging problems. The cavity closers also act as an effective vertical damp proof course (DPC), ensuring compliance with Building Regulations. The lightweight closers are available in sizes to suit many cavity widths and are simple to install, requiring no special tools. Lengths can be simply cut with a saw, the PVC flanges and fixing clips provide a secure method of fixing. The closer can be used in individual lengths, or some may be preformed into frames or fixed directly onto window and door frames prior to installation.

3 G240 cavity closer Double flange standard reveal DRY LINE PLASTER BOARD G245 WALL TIE INTERNAL LEAF INSULATED CAVITY EXTERNAL LEAF SEAL WINDOW FRAME/SILL The G240 cavity closer has a double flange feature for use in standard cavity wall details. It is designed for standard vertical cavity and sill details, providing an economical solution to cold bridging problems and is available in a range of sizes to suit varying cavity widths. The closer also acts as a vertical DPC barrier, however a DPC is still recommended in horizontal applications. G240 closers can also be used around window and door reveals to satisfy the requirements of Part B of the Building Regulations when the window/door frames are fixed in a standard dry lined detail. See Warrington Fire test report for further details. The closer is easily installed with no special fixing requirements or tools and can be used in individual lengths, or preformed into formers and fixed directly on to window and door frames. Lengths of closer can be easily cut with a saw and joined together, with no loss of thermal efficiency, allowing smaller offcut lengths to be reused, helping to reduce wastage. G245 fixing clips enable the closer to be fixed securely to the brickwork, the clips slide into the fixing channel in the supporting flanges allowing variable height adjustment to match brick courses. The clips also join multiple lengths of closer together. The G246 right angle clip allows for the formation of 90 joins between lengths of closer when constructing cavity formers. G245 Fixing clip G246 Right angle clip Product Length Cavity Widths Available Pack Qty G m 50mm up to 150mm 6 lengths Additional widths are also available to order up to 350mm Product Description Pack Weight Pack Qty G245 Fixing Clips 0.43kg 100 G246 Right Angle Clips 0.40kg 50 G240 standard cavity widths: 50mm, 65mm 75mm, 90mm, 100mm, 110mm, 120mm, 125mm, 130mm, 140mm, 150mm

4 G242 cavity closer Single flange rebated reveal DRY LINE PLASTER BOARD G245 WALL TIE INTERNAL LEAF INSULATED CAVITY EXTERNAL LEAF SEAL WINDOW FRAME/SILL In areas of high exposure that are subject to severe weather conditions, it is common practice to position the window frame behind a rebate in the outer leaf at the jamb, this is sometimes referred to as a check reveal. The Manthorpe G242 cavity closer is designed to work in a check reveal detail, making it suitable for use in exposure zones up to and including zone 4 (very severe). In a rebated opening, the two cavity leaves are not in line, so a conventional double flanged cavity closer would not sit level across them. The G242 is a single flange cavity closer, which is suited to rebated openings, with the flanged edge resting on the internal leaf and the other butting up to the rebated outer leaf. The G245 fixing clips can still be used to tie the flangeless edge into the outer leaf, securing it in position. Flexible cavity closers The G243 and G244 flexible cavity closers sections allow for arched and round windows and doors to be easily incorporated into building designs without compromising insulation requirements. Manthorpe flexible cavity closer is available in two alternative profiles the G243 cavity closer suits standard cavities while the G244 is suitable for rebated details. Both are suitable for closing the cavity at circular or arched openings with a minimum diameter of 500mm. Any size opening can be produced, from domestic bull s eye windows to large commercial applications, through its unique joining system and flexible capability. Product Length Cavity Widths Available Pack Qty G m 50mm up to 150mm 6 lengths G244 Single flange G m 50mm up to 150mm To Order G m 50mm up to 150mm To Order Additional widths are also available to order up to 350mm G243 Double flange G242, G243 and G244 standard cavity widths: 50mm, 65mm 75mm, 90mm, 100mm, 110mm, 120mm, 125mm, 130mm, 140mm, 150mm

5 G241 cavity closer Single flange G247 cavity closer Double flange The G241 cavity closer is an economical version of the G240 which is fitted with a single extrusion edging. Due to the single flange design, the closer can be used in both standard and rebated openings and is available in a range of cavity widths. G241M Multi width The G241M Multi width cavity closer has grooved guides which allows it to be accurately cut to suit various widths. Multi width closers enable the stockist to hold one size which can be easily trimmed to suit specific requirements of the customer. Product Length Cavity Widths Available Pack Qty G m 50mm up to 100mm 6 lengths Additional widths are also available to order up to 150mm G241M 2.44m 100mm * 6 lengths * Supplied in initial widths of 100mm, but can be cut to suit various cavity widths using the grooved guides. The G247 profile cavity closer suits standard vertical cavity and sill details. It meets the building regulations and achieves the required U-Value at the reveal of door and window openings when the frames are fixed to allow a 30mm overlap into the cavity. G247M Multi width The G247M Multi width cavity closer suits standard cavity widths between 50mm and 100mm, the grooved back profile of the insulation can be cut to the desired width, offering the versatility of several closers in a single product. Product Length Cavity Widths Available Pack Qty G m 50mm up to 100mm 6 lengths Additional widths are also available to order up to 150mm G247M 2.44m 100mm * 6 lengths * Supplied in initial widths of 100mm, but can be cut to suit various cavity widths using the grooved guides. G241 and G27 standard cavity widths: 50mm, 65mm 75mm, 90mm, 100mm

6 G249F fire rated cavity closer Half hour fire rated - Double and single flange FIRE RATED The fire rated closers are designed to be retro-fitted into the cavity after the window / door reveal has been constructed. They can be compressed and pushed into the cavity, trimming away the flanges locally to allow a sill overlap where required. The cavity closer profiles are non load bearing and should not be used as a replacement for traditional methods of fixing window and door frames to the masonry wall. The Manthorpe G249F ½ hour fire rated cavity closer has been designed for use where a fire barrier / fire stop is required to seal cavities around window and door reveals of a building. The unique compressible clip feature allows the product to expand within the cavity creating a fire seal. The enclosed box design incorporates a mineral fibre wool insulating core which provides a ½ hour fire barrier, as well as a solution to cold bridging problems acting as a thermal cavity closer and vertical DPC. It is manufactured in four sizes that suit cavity widths varying from 50mm to 130mm in size. It can be easily installed either in new build or refurbishment situation with no special fixing requirements or tools. The G249F ½ hour fire rated cavity closer has been designed to comply with Building Regs Part L and Scottish Technical Standards Part D. The G249R is suitable for use in rebated cavity openings where a fire barrier is required. In this construction the frame is positioned behind the outer leaf and is suitable for use in exposed categories up to and including very serve as defined in table 10 of BS5628 Part 3 which covers all exposure zones in the United Kingdom. Fire Rating testing for the ½ hour insulation and integrity was carried out by Warrington Fire, test report No G249F Double flange G249R Single flange Product Length Cavity Width Material Pack/Qty Standard Reveal Double Flange G F 2.4m 50-70mm PVCU 3 per pack G F 2.4m 70-90mm PVCU 3 per pack G F 2.4m mm PVCU 3 per pack G F 2.4m mm PVCU 3 per pack Rebate Reveal Single Flange G249R-50-70F 2.4m 50-70mm PVCU 3 per pack G249R-70-90F 2.4m 70-90mm PVCU 3 per pack G249R F 2.4m mm PVCU 3 per pack G249R F 2.4m mm PVCU 3 per pack

7 rigid frame formers say goodbye to dummy timber frames Structural window openings need to be created to suit the exact specifications of the glazed unit that will fit into it. A dummy former the size of the window is installed at sill level to build the rest of the opening around, providing a perfectly proportioned square opening. These dummy formers were traditionally made of timber, which then needed to be removed once the opening was finished to fit the cavity closer and eventually the window unit. These wooden units needed to be painstakingly fabricated onsite to the correct size for each opening, and were prone to damage while awaiting installation. Once no longer required and swapped out for the cavity closer, the removed timber frames were yet another thing to dispose of for the builder. The Manthorpe rigid frame former is a faster, more efficient, more cost effective alternative to made-on-site timber equivalents. The units are a dummy former and cavity closer rolled into one; they are strong, quick to install and are designed to improve efficiency and save man hours. Project specific take off service For larger projects we offer builders, architects and developers a project specific take off service. Simply send us the structural opening information or window schedule and we will calculate the size of the openings and supply Manthorpe rigid frame formers specific to that particular development, streamlining operations, saving more time and increasing efficiency even further. Ready assembled or flat packed Choose the option that suits you best either ready assembled or cut-to-length, palletised flat packs. Easy to transport and easy to store on-site, the flat pack version has proven to be extremely popular in tests, reducing clutter (no more piles of frames) and leading to quicker, better organised ways of working. Assembly is easy and fast just click to fit.

8 rigid frame formers G280 and G282 profiles G280/G282 P and Q Frame Formers As well as frame fromers for standard windows and door openings, P-shaped frames for use in details with an adjacent smaller window are available. The opposite Q-shaped opening can also be ordered. G280/G282 T Frame Former A double sided T-shaped frame can be produced for details with 2 smaller window sections. With all of these larger frames we recommend that they are transported flat packed, to help ensure safe delivery of the former. The Manthorpe G280 and G282 rigid frame former provides a time saving solution to cold bridging problems around window and door reveals. The rigid box design allows the cavity walling to be built up to the frame without the need of manufacturing dummy window formers, beating more traditional methods of window construction on all counts. Strong, extremely simple to install and available in a multitude of widths, the product has been designed to improve efficiency, speed up installation and cut down on the need for on site fabrications. Use of the rigid frame former eliminates the site clutter that arises from dummy timber frames, which are prone to damage when left lying around. The product provides a framework for the masonry construction around the window aperture and remains in place as a base for the window frame. The Manthorpe frame former achieves the required thermal break and vertical DPC at the reveal of the window and door openings when fixed to allow a 30mm overlap into the cavity. This applies to sills, doors and rebated reveals (G282 profile). Quick-to-fit corner braces and horizontal battens, secured with self-tapping screws, ensure that rigidity is maintained. For larger doors and windows, where extreme rigidity is required, a diagonal brace is also provided. Braces and battens are re-usable.
