Monarfloor Wall Cap 400

Acoustic isolation and energy insulating system for separating party cavity walls within traditional multi-rise developments.

Monarfloor® Wall Cap 400 isolates the load-bearing leaves from the precast floor plank, reducing the acoustic flanking sound transmission within the structure. Monarfloor Wall Cap 400 also ensures the integrity of acoustic treatments for party walls and floors.

    Installation at a glance

    • Build the load-bearing party walls to the desired height.
    • Locate Wall Cap clips equally at approximately 600mm centres on both masonry leaves along the length of the party cavity wall.
    • Roll Wall Cap 400 membrane over the full length of the prepared cavity wall, return the overhangs down the face of the masonry blocks and clip into the Wall Cap clips.
    • For jointing and detailing, butt the Wall Cap membrane tight and locate further Wall Cap clips at these junctions. Wall Cap 400 should be used for cavity walls and Wall Cap 200 for flanking walls.
    • Once the floor planks are fully installed, proceed to build the party and flanking walls.
    • All wall /floor junctions must be isolated in the same manner as the build continues upwards.
    • Wall Cap 400 membranes can be overlapped where necessary.


    For optimum acoustic isolation, the party cavity wall should have 
    Monarfloor® Bridgestop® built in at every storey and flanking walls isolated from the precast floor slab with Monarfloor® Isolation Strip.
