Speedheat Underfloor Heating

Speedheat & GreenRscreed at Old Mutual Green Building

This new 12-storey development is targeting a five star Green Star SA rating from the Green Building Council SA, and Speedheat will be contributing towards this exciting project by installing floor heating together with GreenRscreed insulating screed!

Contributing factors that make this installation green are:

*GreenRscreed recycled insulating screed installed underneath the floor heating system, reduces heat loss into the concrete slab, thereby reducing warming up times.  Energy wastage is largely diminished.

*With the installation of GreenRscreed, it is possible to install a low power heating system due to improved efficiency and response times.   The floor heating system is compatible with a Siemens BMS (Building Management System), contributing towards energy efficiency and lower operational costs.

*Soundproofing and weight saving properties make GreenRscreed perfectly suited for multi-level buildings.

*Compared to normal sand cement screeds, GreenRscreed is a lightweight screed, therefore reducing material use, transport costs and ultimately carbon footprint.

*GreenRscreed also acts as an effective decoupler from the substrate.  This means potential cracks in the concrete slabs will not follow through to the floors.

*GreenRscreed is made from 100% recycled polystyrene and is recyclable.
