ThermoFloor 045

Wood-fibre impact sound insulation board (resilient layer) suitable for loads up to 5 kN/m²

laying Karphosit clay blocks

ThermoFloor boards are rigid insulation boards. Their most common use is as an acoustic isolation layer in floor constructions (i.e below screed). ThermoFloor boards can be composted after their useful life.

Composition & Manufacture

  • Manufactured from renewable resources
  • Manufactured from by-products
  • No chemical additives
  • No toxins or toxic emissions during manufacture
  • CO2 zero-rated
  • Timber fuelled embodied energy
  • Actively recycled

Installation & Disposal

  • No known health risks for workforce or installers
  • Easily and quickly installed
  • No VOC emissions
  • Durable
  • Low maintenance
  • Reusable / Recyclable
  • Compostable

Performance

  • Excellent dynamic rigidity (30 MN/m³)
  • High impact sound reduction
  • High airborne sound reduction
  • Excellent thermal insulation
  • Vapour permeable
  • Hygroscopic (absorbs & releases moisture)
  • Helps regulate indoor climate
  • Vermin and fungus resistant
  • Electrically neutral
  • Non-radioactive
  • Free from toxins and allergens
  • Dimensionally stable (low thermal movement)

ThermoFloor boards can be installed below all types of commonly specified floating floors - screeds, dry flooring elements, unfired clay blocks, flooring grade chipboard and flooring grade OSB. ThermoFloor is often installed in two layers in order to accommodate conduit runs.

DESIGN CONSIDERATIONS

Maximum installation thickness
Screed (cement, anhydrite, asphalt etc) 60 mm
Chipboard > 25 mm 30 mm
OSB flooring > 22 mm 30 mm
Dry Flooring Elements > 25 mm 30 mm
ThermoSafe-nf 40mm 20 mm

For greater thicknesses use ThermoSafe 040.

STORAGE & HANDLING

Storage
Store in dry conditions.

Cutting
Cut boards using a fine-toothed hand saw, Jig saw, or circular saw with integral dust extractor.

Installation

• Protect boards from moisture in the substrate / screed.
• Avoid cross joints when laying.
• Stagger joints when installing more than one layer.
• Install edge strip to the full height of the proposed floor make up.

Composition

Raw materials spruce / pine chippings
Hydrating agent natural tree resin
