With energy prices rising we are constantly trying to find ways to reduce the amount of energy we are wasting. One way you can reduce energy wastage is to add underfloor insulation to your ground floor. By adding floor insulation to your property, it reduces the amount of heat that is lost when it escapes through gaps between your floor and the ground. Ideally, insulation boards for floors should be fitted when a new floor is being put in place however, if you think you are losing a lot of heat through your floors, it could be a worthwhile investment and installing them may not be as costly as you may think. Ultimately, by reducing your energy waste you should start to see a drop in your energy usage and in turn, a drop in your energy bills.

Depending on which type of sub-floor and floor covering you have will depend on which boards you should use. If you’re not sure which ones you require, get in touch with us on 01473 559079 and one of our team will be here to help you.

Our Range

Within our range we have every type of board you need to successfully complete you underfloor heating installation. Different type of boards are used for different jobs so read on further to find out more about each type of board we stock and the options available for each one.

Tile Backer Boards

Tile backer boards, also known as Hardy boards, are a lightweight insulated board developed specifically for use with floor and wall tiles. They are easy to work with as they are extremely light and easy to cut, whether you are using fine tooth saw, jigsaw, or utility knife. It is dimensionally stable, it doesn't rot or warp, and it provides excellent resistance to moisture. It also offers the additional benefit of a high level of thermal insulation, making it ideal for electric underfloor heating insulation. Available in 1200mm x 600mm sheets which can be cut down to the size of your choice, they also have various thicknesses such as 6mm, 10mm and 20mm.

XPS Insulation Boards

XPS boards have been specifically designed to be used with electric foil underfloor heating systems on timber & concrete floors. XPS Insulation, or Extruded Polystyrene Insulation, is manufactured through an extrusion process which involves melting together the plastic resin with the other ingredients. The liquid formed is then continuously extruded through a die and expands during the cooling process. This then produces a closed cell rigid insulation. These are available in 1200mm x 600mm sheets and come in thicknesses of 6mm, 10mm and 20mm.

Overlay Boards

Overlay boards are used for wet underfloor heating installations as they offer a variety of advantages over other boards. They are dual purpose as they can be used under both tiled floors floating floors such as laminate. Ideal for both new builds and renovations, we have a wide selection for you choose for when it comes to type, board length, and thickness.

Decoupling Matting

Our decoupling matting is a multi-functional matting system which has a 3-layer construction that offers so much more than decoupling. These are quick and easy to install and are ideal for renovation projects. You’ll also find Underfloor heating carrier mats in this section which are an excellent way of organising and laying down heating cables.

It is made from 100% recycled plastic and features a thick, 15mm self-adhesive backed panels which provide a fast-fix floor heating solution.
