Cavity Stop Socks
Cavity stop socks are manufactured using non-combustible rock fibre mineral wool. These strips of low-resin stop the spread of fire by acting as a cavity barrier in masonry walls.
They’re essential in various builds, including terraced, semi-detached homes, apartments, and major construction projects.
The design and material composition of cavity socks restricts the spread of smoke and flames within timber framed and external masonry walls, which is particularly important in densely built residential areas or commercial complexes.?
Capable of withstanding high temperatures, cavity fire socks are designed to meet stringent fire safety and building regulations, including Robust Detail, Approved Document B, and NHBC Standards.
Plus, they defend properties against mould growth, bacteria, fungi and even vermin. Cavity socks double as both fire and sound barriers with their acoustic insulation properties.
High-quality products, like those at Beesley & Fildes, will regulate sound flanking at walls and minimise noise pollution.
