New Knauf rainscreen cavity systems make life easier for specifiers

Knauf Insulation has launched Rocksilk RainScreen Cavity Systems – a range of complete tested systems designed to simplify specification and support compliance in cladding and masonry façades.

The systems consist of sheathing insulation, fixings, and cavity barriers.

Luke Davies, Rock Mineral Wool Product Manager at Knauf Insulation said:  “The Building Safety Act places much more scrutiny on everyone working on high-risk buildings.

“The ‘gateways’ it introduces, plus the ever-stricter compliance criteria of the Building Regulations, mean it’s never been more important to get your specification right. That’s why we’ve launched these systems – to make it easier for specifiers to meet these challenging requirements with a single system, backed up by rigorous test data.”

The Rocksilk RainScreen Cavity Systems combine existing Knauf Insulation rainscreen products with a series of new cavity barrier solutions, including open state cavity barriers with an intumescent strip, a closed state cavity barrier, and further additions to Knauf Insulation’s innovative face-fixed masonry cavity barrier range launched last year.

The full range of cavity barriers enables specifiers to choose the system that best meets their fire performance needs, confident it has been tested to the relevant standards. Rocksilk RainScreen Cavity Systems can be used with the major substrate types, including blockwork, steel, and timber.
