Cross Laminated Timber Project Partnered with Cellecta Products
Cellecta’s ScreedBoard underfloor heating system (left) has been installed into the Cross Laminated Timber, Mayfield School development in Illford. Encompassing 3 high performance insulation components; ScreedBoard 20 dry screed boards, HEXATHERM XFLOOR routed insulation panels and FIBREfon 8 resilient layers the system was recognised as the ideal soundproofing and under floor heating floating floor system for the modern development.
As a relatively new method of building, Cellecta’s specification on this project highlights the systems versatility and the degree of confidence in the solution to meet the requirements of modern construction methods.
Cellecta Products an Ideal Partner for Cross Laminated Timber
The cutting edge project consists of a £21 million extension, doubling the size of the school to create new sports facilities and a wide range of new classrooms for students. Cross Laminated Timber is a relatively new innovation in timber construction and can be used for long spans and assemblies including floors, walls and roofs. One of the major advantages of Cross Laminated Timber is that the panels are manufactured and completed off site, allowing them to be delivered and installed on site at the exact time they are required for installation.
Dry System Speeds up Build Times
The Cellecta system was the ideal partner as its dry properties offered significant benefits over traditional wet systems that require lengthy drying times. Additional benefits include ScreedBoard’s interlocking edge detail, which removes the need for screws and can significantly reduce build times. Cellecta’s products were also specified due to their exceptional sound proofing and thermal performance properties, both essential features for optimising students learning experience in educational environments.
A Benefit to the Community
The school governors hope the extension will help Mayfield School match the best schools in the area and benefit the whole local community by increasing the schools capacity and creating a variety of new jobs.

Cellecta Pick Up Best Stand Award at Timber Expo 2014
The icing on a successful Timber Expo was achieved with Cellecta picking up “The Best Shell Package Stand Show” award. The Award was given in recognition for the stands detailed design and layout, which featured Cellecta‘s ScreedBoard with under floor heating installed as the floor. Having ScreedBoard installed on the floor allowed the Cellecta team to demonstrate the benefits of the system, and visitors were able to physically and visually embrace the benefits of installing a dry screed flooring system over a wet flowing screed. This represented a far more effective approach than standalone product samples that had been adopted at previous events.
The Vision in The Visuals
The vision for the stand was to create an engaging presence which was instantly achieved with Cellecta‘s trademark yellow and red colour scheme, which stood proud among the array of traditional white themed stands. Significant efforts were taken to simplify the messages delivered via the stand to allow visitors to quickly recognise the benefits of Cellecta solutions within their projects and endorse general brand awareness. The stand also showcased installation videos of the products on show, technical literature, and samples for customers to experience the products. These features were well received and encouraged visitors to interact with the stand and further extend the educational experience.
Cellecta would like to further extend their thanks to Timber Expo for putting on another excellent event and for the recognition given to their stand. For the full review on Cellecta’s Timber Expo event click here.

No Screws, No Slip Ups with ScreedBoard
Recognised for ease of installation, ScreedBoard’s unique interlocking edge detail means no screws are necessary when installing the boards. All that is needed is bead of ScreedBoard adhesive. This feature is hugely beneficial as it reduces the potential for damaging pipes when installing ScreedBoard on top of an under floor heating system, a genuine risk when using other similar dry screed systems. This can prevent costly remedial work to fix a damaged pipe after an entire floor has been completed. Installers can lay the boards with confidence that the under floor heating will remain undamaged.
No Screws Saves Money and Time
No screws is also a significant cost saving benefit in comparison to other similar dry screed floor boards that require several screws per board to be correctly installed. When extrapolated across an entire project this saves hundreds if not thousands of screws and the labour costs associated with installation. This feature enables floors to be laid quicker and other trades to be introduced earlier in the build, improving the chance that the development will be completed sooner.
