Spandrel Barrier

Description

ARC Spandrel Barrier seals the top of the party wall cavity, allowing a zero U-value to be achieved when used in conjunction with ARC T-Barrier® vertically. Spandrel Barrier is compressed between the top of the party wall blockwork and underside of the spandrel panel, creating a fire and thermal break.

It is designed to be fitted across the top of party wall blockwork underneath a timber spandrel panel. Installation is easy: the barrier simply push-fits into the top of the party wall cavity. The spandrel panel then drops on top, compressing the barrier and creating a fire and thermal break between the spandrel panel and blockwork. Lengths of ARC Spandrel Barrier should be butted tightly together, with care taken to ensure that no gaps remain.

Features:

  • Up to four hours' fire integrity around edge of party wall.
  • Up to one hour's fire integrity between the spandrel panel and blockwork.
  • Use in conjunction with ARC T-Barrier® vertically to create an effective edge seal around the party wall cavity.
  • Zero U-value can be achieved.
  • Minimizes thermal bypass.
  • Easy to install.
  • BRE Green Guide 'A+' rating.
  • Manufactured under ISO 9001- and ISO 14001-certified 'Quality and Environmental Systems'.
