We recommend installing floor insulation with all our heating systems to further increase the efficiency of the heating system.
Without floor insulation a great part of the heat created by the underfloor heaters is lost downwards into the concrete slab. Your home will warm up faster whilst reducing your energy consumption.
StoploZ™ Thermal Insulation, our local brand, is manufactured by an established affiliated company, Siyanqoba Insulations (Pty) Ltd. Siyanqoba Insulations is dedicated to manufacturing and supplying eco-friendly insulation products compatible with Speedheat heating systems, and includes a thermal insulation product range suitable for both new builds and renovations.
Floor insulation boards
StoploZ™ KlimaBoard is a lightweight, reinforced floor insulation board made from extruded polystyrene. Reinforced with fibreglass mesh and a cement slurry on both sides improves compressive strength and allows for effective application onto substrates.
KlimaBoard is available in different thicknesses, achieving different compressive strengths and R values. Improvement in warming up times is noted.
StoploZ™ GreenRscreed is a lightweight insulating floor screed which replaces conventional sand cement screed.
GreenRscreed aggregate, made from 100% recycled EPS treated with a polymer additive, are mixed into builder’s screed as a sand replacement to achieve ideal thermal insulating properties.
This results in a lightweight insulating finishing screed, with soundproofing properties, making it especially suitable for new buildings and multi-storey buildings.
GreenRscreed is also used to insulate flat roof slab structures.
A Speedheat consultant will advise you on the best floor build up to suit your floor finish and requirements.
