Liquid Floor Screed – Ready to play marbles on!

Benefits of a Liquid Floor Screed

It is ideal for under-floor heating as the screed is pumped in as a liquid formed product and finds it's way around all pipes, creating a void free finish. No voids means greater conductivity – allowing heat to diffuse evenly within the screed.

Thinner Layer

The physical properties of the material allows for a thinner screed within the underfloor heated screed, down to 50mm as apposed to 70mm for a conventional sand and cement screed, therefore there is less material to heat, so the room reaches its desired temperature faster and more efficiently.

Even without under floor heating, it still has advantages to traditional screed. It is possible to reduce the thickness to 25mm due to it being far more robust reaching strengths of 30N/mm².

Dry in 24 Hours

In good drying conditions, liquid floor screed can be ready for light traffic in 24-48 hours, allowing other aspects of your building project to progress without delay.

Finish

The overall finish is almost polished floor standard, smooth and scuff free making it

beneficial to floor layers for installing the final floor covering.

Availability

There are a number of suppliers for this type of product within Hampshire and also Wiltshire which would service a wide diameter of an area, a simple Google search would identify your closest supplier.

Considerations

It is worth noting that they generally require a minimal area to make it a viable option both logistically and financially (generally 20m² minimum).

Another consideration worth noting is the fact it is a liquid screed and would therefore require pumping into position so access & distance need to be considered, obviously all suppliers have their own preferred maximum distance they work within so again, this will need discussing with your supplier.
