When used with insulation, SureCav brings many cost-saving advantages:
SureCav ensures that the insulation is held firmly against the inner leaf, ensuring it works to its full specification.
As it is forms the cavity, SureCav also provides a "plastic wall" - a permanent plastic shuttering This acts as a barrier against any penetrating rain, especially in high moisture zones. The specially shaped protrusions are expertly designed to deflect any moisture to the outer leaf, thus protecting the fabric of the building.
It is to your advantage to install the maximum width of insulation possible to achieve the best "U" values. Installing SureCav guarantees a clean and moisture free cavity.

Insulation held firmly in place by the SureCav panel. Helical ties can be used for random stonework, as shown in the illustration.
The flint facing is being built against the Surecav backing panel, which in turn, is holding the insulation in place.
Building with SureCav panels instead of using a block leaf provides a barrier to protect from the elements. The SureCav panels provide an excellent surface for the construction of the stone wall, and shield the cavity and inner leaf from water penetration.
The unique shape of the SureCav pods directs any moisture to the outside leaf, protecting the fabric of the building. SureCav ensures that there is no water penetration from wind-driven rain with a 50mm cavity instead of the usual 75mm required in high exposure zones.
The barrier formed by the panels, locked together by the joining strips, will protect the structure in even the most exposed weather conditions.
