The ARC TCB (Timber Cavity Barrier) is available for speedy delivery.
ARC TCB is designed to be compression fitted within a timber frame cavity. In vertical applications, both flanges are fixed, in horizontal applications only the top flange should be fixed.
The flanges are fixed to the frame using clout nails at 150mm centres. The polythene encapsulation offers on-site weather protection, but can be cut away without affecting the barrier’s performance.
Care should be taken butt joints are tighly fitted with no gaps remaining. The barrier must fully fill the cavity from brick to timber, with any cavity insulation cut back.
At door and window openings it is recommended the horizontal barrier should overlap the vertical barrier to ensure a close butted fit can be achieved.
