The AIM Horizontal Closer has been designed to provide resistance to the passage of flanking sound through the wall cavity adjacent to separating floors, and complies with the requirements of Part E.
The AIM Horizontal Closer will also provide at least 2 hours resistance to the spread of fire past the separating floor.
The specialist medium density mineral wool insulation used for the horizontal closer, is pre-compressed to enable it to take up any minor irregularity in the wall void. This procedure also makes the insulation more flexible and easier to handle.
The AIM Horizontal Closer should be installed in the external cavity wall at the level of the separating floor. The closer is installed with the wide dpc overlap uppermost, as indicated in the illustrations with the dpc embedded into the inner blockwork in the mortar layer above the closer, so as to form a cavity tray.
If being used as a fire closer the product must be positioned immediately above a row of metal wall ties. If this is not possible the Horizontal Closer can be supplied with fixing clips. These are embedded into the mortar joint above floor level and the Horizontal Closer is impaled onto the clips
