Application

  • The product is available to order for traditional counterweight frames and balanced spring frames. In refurbishment applications where a balanced spring frame is replacing a conventional counterweight frame, the opportunity also exists to fully insulate the resultant void.
  • Modified versions are available for use with solid walls where enveloping the frame is desired to improve isolation against. Consult manufacturer for details.
  • Traditional and timber frame construction compatible.
  • New and retrofit (in some instances) applications.

Description

Insulated damp course profiles, which establish damp proof course (DPC) separation between masonry and frame. Introduces thermal break to aid reduction in heat loss from the structure.

Sash Frame Insulated DPC’s introduce DPC integrity along the line of the masonry check and cavity, guarding against wet transference into the sash box. They also reduce the potential heat loss opportunities, utilizing an insulating layer (of a thickness dictated by the available space) bonded to the DPC surface(s).

Features and benefits:

  • Provides vertical DPC separation.
  • Reduces heat loss potential.
  • Suitable for new and existing structures applications.
  • Does not extrude or compresses under load.
  • Chlorofluorocarbons (CFC) free and has Zero Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP).
  • Functionality of the product is not affected by cavity insulation.
  • Profile considerations Continuity core option pending build detail.
  • Bespoke service available, consult manufacturer for details.
