Knauf Insulation’s new Polyfoam® Combi-Closer is a ‘one-size-fits-all’ cavity-closer that is set to transform the insulated cavity-closer market. This unique and innovative solution means that just one size of cavity-closer is now needed to close masonry wall cavities ranging from 50 to 100mm wide. And, apart from benefiting builders, it gives merchants that rarest of opportunities: to increase sales and reduce stock holding at the same time!
Not so with Polyfoam® Combi-Closer! Its unique, patented design means it can be easily modified so that ‘one-size-fits-all’. The closer is made from a rigid PVC casing that holds a length of Knauf’s high performance, extruded polystyrene Polyfoam® Insulation. The insulation material is partially cut-through along the length of the closer and this allows strips to be quickly snapped-off so that the closer fits snugly into any size cavity.
Needing just one size of cavity-closer on a project brings some obvious benefits and not just for builders – Polyfoam® Combi-Closer also benefits the supply-chain. “It’s such a simple solution that some builders’ merchants may wonder how they’ve lived without it,” said Mark Thompson, Knauf’s Foam Market Development Manager, “Now they only have to stock one or two lines of cavity-closer and still be confident that, no matter what size cavity the customer has, they’ve got the right size to fill it!”
Although one size could fit all, Knauf offer Polyfoam® Combi-Closer in two sizes for better economics: 75mm wide for smaller cavity widths of 50 to 75mm or a wider, but more universal, 100mm wide version for cavities ranging from 50 to 100mm wide. Both are supplied in polythene packs containing six, 2.4m lengths.
