The top of the Insulated DPC Cavity Closer should be sealed to
the underside of the lintel or protected behind a cavity tray.

Polycor DPC Cavity Closers are supplied in strong polyethylene bags for on site protection.

Care should be taken to keep the product dry prior to installation and it is not recommended to store the product in direct sunlight.

Some local delamination may occur through handling. This will not, however, detract from the performance of the product.
