Insulating Above Precast Concrete Floors

“…is compatible with masonry and timber framed wall constructions…”

Floors consisting of pre-cast concrete units, including concrete plank or beam and block, can be rapidly installed and are suitable for use where conditions preclude a groundbearing floor. Insulation should be installed above the bearing surface.

This construction is compatible with masonry and timber framed wall constructions and may be used with underfloor heating set in a screed.

The properties of Ballytherm insulation match those required for this application: it is robust and moisture resistant, whilst its low thermal conductivity minimises the thickness of insulation within the floor construction.

The thickness of Ballytherm Insulation UK required to meet regulations can be ascertained from this Table 6.
