Floating Floor Systems

Floating Floor System

A floating floor system can be used on almost any floor surface. We can supply two different floating floor systems:

  • Castellated floor panels with aluminium plates.
  • Foil faced grooved insulation panels.

  • The panels come in three thicknesses - 32mm; 48mm and 63mm. Thermal conductivity is 0.034W/mk; 0.35W/mk and 0.035W/mk respectively.
  • The panels are made from extruded polystyrene (EPS) and they are strengthened by a blue film of rigid polystyrene.
  • The aluminium plates are at 200mm centres.
  • The panels interlock and they are laid over the entire floor.
  • The aluminium plates fit onto the castellated floor panels.
  • Once the underfloor heating pipes have been installed and tested, the finished floor can be laid.
  • The heat output is the same as the aluminium plated system - 70W/sm with a room temperature of 20 deg C and a floor temperature of 27 deg C. Please note that if a wooden floor is to be laid over a floating floor system, the maximum floor temperature is 27 deg C.

 

 

 

FOIL FACED GROOVED INSULATION PANELS

  • The panels are made from extruded polystyrene (EPS) which are grooved and the aluminium foil is stuck to the panels.
  • The polystyrene panels have grooves at 200mm centres.
  • These panels can be supplied in any thickness.
  • Special panels are supplied that allow for pipe turns at the ends of the room.
  • Once the underfloor heating pipes have been installed and tested the finished floor can be laid.
  • With a room temperature of 20deg C and a floor temperature of 27deg C, the heat output from this system is 60W/sm.
  • If a wooden floor is to be laid over this system the maximum floor temperature is 27deg C.
