Advantages SureCav Brings to the Construction Industry

Our cost-efficient Cavity Spacer System is now available to install in homes throughout the USA. Designed to suit the standard 16-inch building gauge, SureCav brings its many benefits to a concrete construction or a wood frame system.

SureCav allows cavity insulation to work at its full thermal efficiency  – and SureCav’s moisture protection properties is also best-in-class.

As it forms the cavity, SureCav also provides a barrier against any penetrating rain – vital in high moisture zones. The specially shaped 1-inch or 2-inch deep protrusions are expertly designed to protect the fabric of the building by deflecting any moisture to the outer leaf.

The outer leaf of natural stone, brick, flint or slate can then be built directly against the SureCav backing board.

SureCav helps to achieve a quick, simple, cost-effective construction project.

Wind Driven Rain in the US Eastern Seaboard

The EPA (United Sates Environmental Protection Agency) states that "extreme weather events such as heat waves and large storms are likely to become more frequent or more intense".

It’s vital to protect your building against wind-driven rain – one of the most common sources of moisture affecting buildings. It can result in mould, mildew and condensation on windows and in the loft space.

Additionally a moisture problem in the wall cavity quickly causes more widespread problems. The insulation and wall & plates, the timber frame itself, and installed joinery can all be damaged.

SureCav Provides the Answer

By building with the SureCav panels to form a cavity, you are providing a barrier to protect from wind driven rain. The "wall" of plastic, formed by the SureCav panels not only provides an excellent surface for the construction of the stone wall but shields the cavity and inner leaf from water ingress.

The unique shape of the SureCav pods directs any moisture to the outside leaf, thus protecting the fabric of the building. SureCav ensures that there is no water penetration from wind driven rain with a 50mm cavity instead of wider cavities 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.

SureCav also provides protection to the external corners – often the most vulnerable parts of the wall. The corner sections of the SureCav installation are formed by folding the sheet along the bend line, enhancing the all-weather protection afforded by SureCav.

Why use Cavity Walls?

  • There is no possibility of the moisture travelling from the outer wall to the inner wall
  • The layer of air in the cavity being non-conductor of heat, it reduces the transmission of heat from the external face to internal one
  • Cavity walls have 25% greater insulating value than solid walls. This acts as damp barrier, reduces the cooling cost of the building
  • These have good sound insulation property.
  • They are economical.
  • Insulated masonry cavity walls can offer excellent thermal performance when the cavity is utilised as an insulation zone
  • Allows flexibility of design, allowing the designer to meet the requirements of clients with widely available materials
  • Allows structurally massive systems that can maintain steady comfort levels
  • Can be used either to support the whole building structure, or as an infill panel in steel or concrete framed construction

Advantages of Using SureCav:

  • Significant cost savings compared to concrete
  • Save space from a smaller cavity
  • No water penetration from harsh rain, with a 2-inch cavity
  • SureCav guarantees a completely clean cavity
  • Injection moulded from 100% recycled polypropylene
  • SureCav is very light and takes up less than a quarter of the space of the concrete blocks it replaces
  • Environmentally much more friendly, weight for weight, than concrete backing blocks See more
  • Easier to transport and handle than concrete blocks, saving fuel and minimising health risks
  • When fixed, SureCav holds the insulation against the wall, guaranteeing it works to its full efficiency
  • Reduction in heat loss and noise levels
  • Reduction in energy costs
  • Reduction in condensation and moisture build-up – giving a warmer home

The speed of build, easy storage and handling make SureCav an ideal system. We have found this especially to be the case where storage and working space on site is at a premium.
