Thames Quarter, Reading

Your complete rainscreen cavity system

Ready to streamline your rainscreen specification? 

There’s no need to waste time sourcing insulation and cavity barriers from multiple manufacturers, comparing credentials, and researching compatibility.  

Now you can get a complete, fully tested cavity system from Knauf Insulation. Our trusted Rocksilk® RainScreen Slab insulation, paired with our new range of cavity barriers, will help you streamline your specification process whilst meeting the relevant Building Regulations.  

Our solution for masonry façades also features our innovative cavity barrier, Rocksilk® RainScreen FFCB. Because it can be fixed to the face of the sheathing insulation, Rocksilk® RainScreen FFCB takes approximately half the time to install properly* vs. traditional cavity barriers. 

 

For straightforward specifications and reliable results, choose a Rocksilk® RainScreen Cavity System.
