The Forefront of Flooring Solutions for Timber Frame Developments
Cellecta enjoyed another successful exhibition at this year’s Timber Expo, hosted in the Birmingham NEC. The event provides an opportunity for visitors to view the extensive range of timber technologies and wood products available on the market, in addition to the broadest display of new innovative applications for timber within the built environment. The event attracts a large number of architects, engineers, contractors and local authorities looking for the latest timber solutions. The purpose of Cellecta’s involvement was to make visitors aware of their presence at the forefront of flooring solutions for timber frame developments.
Unique Insulation Solutions for Timber Construction
Cellecta showcased two of their unique solutions for timber frame developments: ScreedBoard the only single layer solution for timber floors with robust detail and TETRiS the eco-friendly insulation block and beam system.
The Ultimate Floorboard – ScreedBoard
ScreedBoard is the ultimate floor board for sound and under floor heating. It is a unique solution and is available in two specifications (ScreedBoard 28 and ScreedBoard 20). ScreedBoard 28 is a composite dry screed acoustic treatment, with an 8mm acoustic resilient layer, designed to exceed the requirements of Part E and is the only single layer system from timber floors to carry a Robust detail (E-FT-5 & E-FT-6). ScreedBoard 20 is the ideal product for floors that require under floor heating system due to its low thermal resistance and rapid heat transfer characteristics.
Undefloor heating, acoustic or combined system
Therefore the boards are suitable for ground floor applications where only under floor heating is required, on a separating floor for soundproofing or as a combined under floor heating and soundproofing solution. Suitable for new build, refurbishment and conversion projects ScreedBoard is able to accept various floor finishes including ceramic tiles, laminate flooring, vinyl and carpet making it ideal for a multitude of floor applications. Additional benefits include its 20/28mm low profile, interlocking edge detail (no screws) and its ability to be cut with a hand or skill saw. Find out more
Eco-friendly Insulation Block and Beam – TETRiS
TETRiS is an eco-friendly alternative to concrete beam and block ground floors on timber frame houses. Installing a TETRiS insulation block and beam system can speed up the overall build time of a project. Up to 16x the length of traditional blocks and only 5kg, (compared to 8.4kg for a single concrete block) TETRiS blocks are easy to handle and install. Capable of withstanding foot traffic on site and easy to cut, the TETRiS system is engineered for fast, efficient building. Eco-friendly properties, U-values as low as 0.10 W/m2k and BRE Green Guide A+ Rated, TETRiS is a revolutionary alternative to traditional structural floors. Find out more
