Homeowners invest in cavity closers for many different reasons, but they’re mostly used to help reduce heat loss to aid economical heating of the home. Thermal Cavity closers simply sit in the gaps between your windows and doors and simultaneously stop warm air from escaping the environment and prevent cold draughts from entering the property, ensuring that your home remains adequately heated even throughout the harsh winter months. They are completely air-tight, too, stopping unwanted currents from ruining your home’s warm and comfortable environment. Cold bridges around the property can, in some cases, cost the owner hundreds of pounds every year in excess energy. And with the price of gas and electricity steadily rising year on year, most switched-on tenants are looking for ways to reduce the cost of their bills, which is why they are increasingly turning to cavity closers as a cheap and long-lasting alternative to re-fitting draughty windows and doors. As well as effectively sealing cold bridges, cavity closers also act as an effective vertical damp proof course, meaning that they act as a waterproof barrier and prevent rising damp from ruining the framework of the building. The cavity closers available from BC Profiles suit cavities that have a width of between 50mm and 100mm, so we’re confident you’ll be able to track down a product that suits your insulating needs. They can be cut to the required length with a standard saw and doing so will not affect the products’ efficiency or performance. Please note that our cavity closers cannot bear loads and so should not be used to support window or door frames in place of traditional wall ties. Need more information?
