30 Mar Warm Return to Warmbeam
After months of intensive development, S and B EPS have today announced that they are in the final stages of having their latest product range receive the BBA mark of approval.
Aimed at the structural flooring market, Warmbeam and Warmbeam Plus offers an simple yet cost effective method of creating insulated suspended ground floors in residential and commercial buildings.
Manufactured from their plant in Cramlington in the North East of England, the Warmbeam interlocking EPS panels are specially designed to be strategically slotted and rotated into place between the shoulders of the pre-cast concrete floor T-beams.
This creates a continuous thermal barrier below the beams, which in turn helps to prevent cold bridging and interstitial condensation. The formwork also provides the perfect base on which to lay the floor screed and damp proof membrane if required. Once the beams and the Warmbeam blocks have been installed, the walls supporting the T-beams can then be built up to finished floor level with bricks or concrete blocks to suit.
Available in white EPS as standard, Warmbeam provides a fantastic solution for most general flooring applications. Where a more superior level of thermal performance is required, Warmbeam Plus, with its graphite enhanced Neopor® technology, manufactured by BASF, offers the ultimate in thermal performance.
With superb environmental credentials, Warmbeam and Warmbeam Plus floor insulation boards boast Zero Ozone Depletion Potential, <5 Global Warming Potential and all clean boards are 100% recyclable.
