The principal change was that the use of full-fill cavity wall insulation was not permitted in areas of very severe exposure to wind-driven rain where fairfaced masonry is used for the outer leaf. However, the rules also reflected the reduced risk where impermeable and rendered outer leaf constructions were used and therefore permitted the use of full fill insulation.
|Exposure Zones||Approximate wind driven rain
(Litres/m2 per spell)
|Sheltered 1||Less than 33|
|Moderate 2||33 to Less than 56.5|
|Severe 3||56.6 to Less than 100|
|Very Severe 4||100 or more|
