Warmfloor Insulated Flooring
Insulated Warmfloor, utilises 150mm or 225mm deep prestressed concrete beams in conjunction with highly insulating high strength expanded polystyrene blocks and components. A nominal 75mm structural concrete topping completes the flooring system. The resulting floor is a thermally efficient and cost effective solution. U values below 0.10w/m²K can be achieved by increasing the thickness of the EPS in the floor construction.
EPS is an environmentally friendly sustainable product with an ODP of zero, A+ BRE Green Guide rating and 100% and is recyclable with the efficient use of natural resources, for every 1 kilogram of oil used in the manufacture of EPS, 150 kilograms can be saved in heating oil over a fifty year period.
Prestressed Concrete T beams manufactured in 150mm or 225mm depths in 50mm increments with high strength expanded polystyrene insulation blocks.
Insulated Flooring products are manufactured from environmentally friendly expanded polystyrene. EPS is a very sustainable product and an efficient use of natural resources, for every 1 kilogram of oil used in the manufacture of EPS, 150 kilograms can be saved in heating oil over a fifty year period.

Warmfloor will help to enhance the thermal performance and efficiency of a building and can achieve ‘U’ values as low as 0.10 The “U” value is a measure of how easy it is for heat to pass through the fabric of a building measured in W/m²K, that is heat (watts) passing through each square metre (m²) for each 1⁰C of temperature difference. Warmfloor can be specified with a range of “U” values that will ensure the building meets its thermal efficiency target. The table gives the U values based on Perimeter/Area (P/A) using either standard white EPS or grey EPS. Grey EPS has added graphite which improves its insulating properties. The thermal performance of the floor can be improved by simply increasing the thickness of the topsheet.
A thermal bridge is an area of building construction which has a significantly higher heat transfer than the surrounding materials, this can occur at the junction between the floor and the wall reducing the thermal efficiency of the building. The measure of this heat loss at the thermal bridge is known as the PSI (Ψ) value measured in W/mK The use of Lynx warmfloor can result in reduced PSI values much less than Accredited Construction Details of 0.16 W/mK increasing the thermal efficiency of the building.
