TETRiS & ScreedBoard – Self-build Development, Bristol

TETRiS and ScreedBoard join forces on Timber Frame Development[dt_divider style=”thin” /]


Two of Cellecta’s innovative insulation solutions ScreedBoard and TETRiS have been specified for a 4-plot timber frame self-build development in Downend, Bristol. TETRiS insulation blocks are to be installed on the ground floor instead of a traditional concrete block and beam system.

TETRiS system not only provides excellent thermal performance and super low u-values, but also significantly decreases overall build times. ScreedBoard 28 has been selected for the separating floors for its excellent acoustic sound proofing qualities. ScreedBoard 28 helps prevent potential airborne and impact sound issues in the development but also has a positive impact on the overall build time thanks to its interlocking edge detail. The project showcases Cellecta’s broad portfolio of thermal and acoustic insulation solutions, and the suitability of both of these systems for timber frame construction.

Insulation block and beam flooring[dt_divider style=”thin” /]

TETRiS is a revolutionary insulation block and beam floor system, designed to replace traditional concrete blocks and offer outstanding thermal and structural performance.

The system consists of large, lightweight, ultra high compressive strength insulation blocks that sit on and between standard pre-stressed concrete floor beams. The blocks are then covered with a structural concrete topping, to produce a super insulated floor with the highest possible Green Guide rating of A+.

Dry screed acoustic flooring system[dt_divider style=”thin” /]

ScreedBoard is a low profile, dry screed 28mm gypsum based floor board manufactured from 100% recyclable material that features a unique interlocking edge detail (no screws).

The boards are ideal for new build and refurbishment projects due to their extensive benefits and all round versatility. They are suitable for both soundproofing and underfloor heating applications, but unlike other similar systems they don’t need to be screwed down, representing significant cost and time savings.

For more information about TETRiS or ScreedBoard and both systems can be incorporated in your upcoming projects
