Title: Insulating masonry cavity walls
Subtitle: Part 1. Techniques and materials

Ref Code: GG44/1
Authors: C Stirling

Abstract1: With increasing pressure to provide ever thicker levels of insulation there is concern that thermally upgrading conventional cavity walls, consisting of two leaves of masonry, may prove impracticable. Part 1 of this Good Building Guide highlights techniques and materials for insulating cavity walls. Part 2 provides guidance on how to reduce the associated technical risks. The guidance is for cavity walls having two masonry leaves; it is not suitable for timber-framed construction.
