Installation advice

  • FRstop is designed to friction fit within the cavity and is easily installed both vertically and horizontally into the cavity during construction. Care should be taken to ensure butt joints are closely fitted and the cavity sock fully fills the cavity.
  • This method should be incorporated with a preformed horizontal cavity tray (refer to Technical Department for appropriate type) and proprietary wall weep vents (Timloc product code 1143) at 900mm centres to prevent water ingress from bridging the cavity.

How to order

  • To calculate quantities divide the overall length of the required cavity wall run by 1.2m, allow an additional unit for each corner for cutting. Always round up to the next whole number
  • Determine and stipulate the cavity width that FRstop needs to suit
