DriTherm Cavity Slab

DriTherm Cavity Slab Insulation

DriTherm® Cavity slab is a new generation of softer, safer and more environmentally friendly glasswool insulation.

DriTherm Cavity slab is a silicone treated insulation product for double brick walls.

DriTherm Cavity slab is specifically designed for construction methods in WA and is available at the local Bunnings Warehouse in WA.

Application
DriTherm Cavity slabs provide a cost-effective thermal and acoustic barrier for energy-efficient construction. The consistent quality, low dust, and clean-cutting resilient glasswool makes installation fast. DriTherm Cavity slabs can be used in masonry cavity external walls and are installed to fully fill the cavity.DriTherm Cavity slabs are 600mm wide to suit standard vertical wall tie spacings, ensuring a closed joint with adjacent slabs.

Proven Performance

  • Preferred by professional installers concerned with quality, appearance and productivity. 
  • Excellent acoustical properties reduce sound transmission in the home when properly installed in wall systems. 

Durability

  • DriTherm Cavity slab insulation is odourless, rot proof, non-hygroscopic, does not sustain vermin and will not encourage the growth of fungi, mould or bacteria. 

Vapour Resistivity

  • DriTherm Cavity slabs offer negligible resistance to the passage of water vapour and have a water vapour resistivity of 5.00MNs/g.m. 

Moisture Resistance

  • DriTherm Cavity slabs comply with the Deemed to Satisfy provisions of the BCA in relation to cavity wall insulation and will not affect the moisture resistance of the wall. Tests by the British Board of Agrément confirm that DriTherm Cavity Slabs will not transmit water to the inner leaf. Nor will they transmit moisture by capillary action across the cavity or from below damp proof course level. 

Superior Handling

  • Highly resilient insulation recovers quickly to full thickness for a snug fit and superior finished aesthetics. 
  • Consistent quality materials feel good, cut easily and install fast. 
  • Low dust for easier handling and increased productivity. 

Convenient Packaging, Easier Handling

  • DriTherm Cavity slab insulation is packaged in a strong, white poly bag that offers excellent protection from abuse, dust and moisture. 
  • DriTherm Cavity slab insulation packages feature easy to follow installation instructions. 
  • MasterBag insulation units (containing multiple packs) ensure reduced handling costs with improved compression – more square metres per bag, more square metres per truck load, fewer trips to the job site and less warehouse space for storage. 

Superior Service and Support

  • Knauf Insulation is focused on providing first class customer service, producing high quality products and ‘in full on time’ deliveries. 
  • Knauf Insulation recognises the need to establish, develop and support a professional network of distributors and re-sellers in order to service a growing insulation market. 
  • Knauf Insulation is committed to providing a comprehensive range of relevant sales and marketing literature and web-based technical information to support specifiers and customers.
