Damcor & Hyload Insulating Vertical DPC

Damcor 165mm & 225mm x 6 mt rolls

A complete and simple solution to thermal bridging where the cavity is closed. Combining advantages of expanded Polystyrene and Polyethylene DPC, DAMCOR is designed to prevent the problem of cold bridging around window and door openings in traditional cavity constructions. At these points in the structure, condensation with possible consequential staining and mould growth, can occur at the reveals due to the lack of insulation where the cavity is closed.  The product is simply placed in the cavity with the DPC overlap trapped between the window/door frame and the exterior brickwork. No special fixings or installation techniques are necessary. The product can be rolled or folded. It is easily cut with a knife or trowel and can be lap-jointed with no loss of thermal efficiency. No material need ever be wasted. 

SCS Insulated DPC

SCS Thermalstop Insulated Economy DPC

We stock 6mt & 10mt Rolls of 165mm and 225mm  Thermal Stop Insulated DPC. Used to provide insulation and damp proofing between the inner brickwork and outer blockwork to prevent damp and help eliminate mould growth. Our 10 metre rolls are GWP & ODP zero rated , so compatable with central London green targets.

Expamet Brick Mesh

Brick Mesh Coils   

20 metre rolls    65/115/175/305mm

Expanded metal brickwork reinforcement is embedded in mortar joints (usually every third course) to give extra tensile strength to wall and help withstand vibration and sudden loading, or to minimize unsightly cracks due to settlement. The material is galvanized or stainless steel and normally finished in 20 meter coils.

Brick Ties

Cavity Wall Ties  / Frame Cramps

Light Duty ( Type 4 )     General Purpose ( Type 2 )    Heavy Duty ( Type 1 )   

Wall ties, sometimes called 'brick ties', are used in buildings with cavity walls. They are used to join the two leaves of a cavity wall together, allowing the two parts to act as a homogeneous unit. Hidden from view after construction, wall ties play a vital role in ensuring the stability of a building.


Brick Ladder reinforcement

Brickspan Masonary Reinforcement

MSF Masonry Reinforcement, also known as Brickspan, Brickforce and Bed Joint Reinforcement is primarily used to strengthen walls, Stainless Steel can be used on both inner and external bricks/blocks whereas galvanised is more suited to internal walls. Our Masonry Reinforcement aids to reduce cracking within walls and structures, as well as providing general support.

Thermabate Cavity Closer

Thermabate Cavity Closers

The Thermabate insulated cavity closer provides a simple and efficient method of closing cavities around openings in masonry walls. The insulating foam core prevents thermal bridging, while the PVC-U box section forms a positive damp proof barrier and key for the direct application of plaster. It effectively prevents condensation, pattern staining and mould growth frequently associated with traditional methods of closing cavities

SCS cavity Closer

SCS Cavity Closers

The SCS Cavity Closer has been designed to provide an easy and effective way of closing the cavities within openings in masonry walls for windows and doors.

The Cavity Closer acts as a seal preventing external water vapour and damp from entering the cavity wall and the building , while also preventing heat from being lost through the gap.

Airbricks

Airbricks &  Telescopic Vents 

The Airbrick has been designed to provide high levels of ventilation into cavity walls and under floor voids.  The brick incorporates a front mounted grille with water deflectors. A mortar key around the edge of the airbrick ensures it can be securely fixed to the building fabric and a clip together facility provides a choice of ventilation sizes.

The Telescopic Underfloor Void Ventilator is designed to provide a clear airflow passage to the void underneath a suspended floor.The telescopic feature enables the ventilator to adjust vertically between three and five brick courses. The right airflow can be achieved when the ventilator is used with an Airbrick.

weep vents

 Weep Vents

The Weep Vent is used to drain lintels, cavity trays and to ventilate cavity walls. The product can be slotted between two bricks and mortared into position. It provides an unobtrusive ventilation point for the cavity behind. The vent has a baffled grille to prevent the ingress of driving rain and wind whilst incorporating an insect grille and drip lip. This grille is sized to keep out large insects but is wide enough that it will not be blocked by debris, paint or water droplets.
