Building Regulations require that cavities and concealed spaces in the structure or fabric of a building are sub-divided or sealed by means of cavity barriers or fire-stopping to restrict the hidden spread of smoke and flames. This is of prime importance since many buildings are honeycombed with concealed cavities and voids within the roofs, floors, and walls.

Also, due consideration must be given to the class of surface exposed within the cavity. It is also important that smoke and flames are restricted from passing from any cavity in a building element directly into a room or another cavity. Therefore, a cavity must be closed by a cavity barrier at every junction with another cavity. Any cavity contained within an element is also required to be closed by a cavity barrier around the perimeter of any opening through the element.
