Ease Of Installation
Joist Shield, Caps have built in tolerance lines for ease of placement. The fins on the sides of the cap provide a key for mortar aiding pointing. Perfect placement is further aided by minimum and maximum fill lines which maintain an air gap to allow the wood to dry out. Joist Shield is attached with a nail each side of the cap. It has no flanges or clips to obstruct restraints or blocks. It also has a reinforced over hit zone.

Visual Inspection
Joist Shield is translucent allowing visual inspection for correct load bearing of 90mm on the masonry inner leaf wall.

Air Leakage
Because the seal with the masonry is maintained Joist Shield will stop unwanted air leakage between the ceiling void and wall cavity and thereby heat loss by air infiltration (as required by statutory regulations concerning the conservation of fuel and power regulations)
