DRY LEVELLING SOLUTIONS
Solutions at your feet
Why use a wet screed to level a floor when dry options are available?
As per many of our solutions, dry levelling compounds originated from Germany. Installers were traditionally using sand to level floors but found that in some cases the sand, with its round grains, would dissipate leading to floor failure. Dry levelling compounds are made with an angular aggregate which bind together mechanically to produce a long lasting, stable floor construction.
If you are faced with a poorly installed beam and block floor, a dished suspended floor or simply have a lot of services in the way, dry floor levelling methods can overcome these problems quickly and with less mess.
Our dry levelling slate is a unique method of levelling uneven floors. A natural product, the small slate chippings are kiln dried to 1200°C which removes a large proportion of its water content rendering the material much less dense than conventional screed (560 kg/m³) and therefore suitable on upper, more lightweight floors. Suitable for depths from 10mm to 60mm.
Foamed glass aggregate is almost the big brother of levelling slate. It works in the same way as the slate by mechanically binding together. The closed-cell structure of each piece provides excellent insulation characteristics with a lambda value of 0.08W/mK. Foamed glass is classified as A1, does not absorb water, has a very high compressive strength, is resistant to insects and rodents and is 100% inert recycled glass. Suitable for depths from 160mm to 500mm.
A new cradle and batten system with integrated underfloor heating developed in conjunction with New Era Flooring systems. Capable of levelling floors to 431mm the cradles include an acoustic pad and are suitable for all floor finishes. More information on this system can be found at www.leveldek.com
