Solid floor Insulation Solutions

INSULATING A SOLID FLOOR INTERNALLY (FLOATING FLOOR).

Insulating a solid floor on the internal side is an effective method of insulation, particularly for retrofit, refurbishment and conversion projects where there is an existing floor.

This method of installing solid floor insulation allows you to significantly reduce the overall height of the floor compared to traditional insulation, maximise the internal floor footprint and reduce the overall cost of the floor. Using our highly reflective, thin profile insulation offers great benefits, whilst achieving U-Values which will ensure you comply with Building Regulations and have a space which is comfortable for its occupants.

The recommended insulation for this method of construction is shown below.

SuperQuilt floating floor

Our floating floor insulation solution is great for projects where there is a solid floor which has no insulation or requires additional insulation to increase the overall U-value.

A floating timber floor is when timber battens or joists are laid on a solid floor, providing a floated floor above the surface. YBS provide floating floor insulation which prevents heat loss and cold bridging.

SuperQuilt should be laid across the surface of the solid floor, with a timber batten or joist laid over the top.

Increase the overall thermal performance of the floor by simply increasing the depth of the joist cavity above the SuperQuilt.
Single or multiple layers of SuperQuilt can be used to achieve your desired U-Value, for more information speak to our technical support team on 01909 726 025

For projects where a lower U-value is required, why not try our Foiltec range.
