Easyflow installers traveled up to Durham to supply and install our Easy Standard underfloor heating system in new build property.
The team prepared the floor by installing a 500 gauge polythene membrane lapped up the walls and an 8mm perimeter edging foam to allow for expansion of the screed.
A ten zone system was used to cover seven rooms on the ground floor. The pre-assembled manifold was first attached in the agreed location and the loops marked out on the floor using a bespoke computer aided design of the floor layout.
The underfloor heating pipes were then secured through the polythene using clips that fix into the insulation.
Easyflow’s first job on site was to supply and install 110mm cement based self-compacting liquid screed to two of the units which didn’t yet have a sub-base.
Following placement of the sub-base the builders on site installed PIR insulation before our installers returned to site to prepare the floor with a 1200 gauge polythene membrane and perimeter expansion foam.
The floors are then laser leveled to the customer’s datum point to determine how much screed is needed.
The pre-assembled manifold is set up in the previously agreed location, usually in a utility room or under the stairs. The pipework is secured to the insulation working to a site specific CAD design.
Our installers then fill the system with water and pressure test to check for leaks before installing a 50mm liquid floor screed.
Easyflow worked with regular clients Belverdale Building Contractors Ltd to supply and install the underfloor heating and liquid floor screeds over three floors for a six bed property in Prestwich.
The Easy Standard system was employed for the ground and first floors with a 75mm covering of Topflow Horizontal cement based liquid screed, used as the building wasn’t completely weather tight.
Our contractors used the Easy Overlay system on the third floor in order to keep the floor make up as low as possible due to restricted ceiling height
Easyflow recently worked on an underfloor heating project for a regular client based in Cheshire.
The project consisted of an uneven existing floor and an extension area, after leveling out the existing concrete floor using a high-performance self-leveling renovation screed, we then returned to site to install 25mm solid floor overlay panels which are pre-routed to accept the underfloor heating pipework. These panels can be tiled directly or covered with a fibre reinforced self-smoothing compound.
In September 2017 Easyflow worked closely with the client to design and install a bespoke underfloor heating as well as liquid floor screed for four holiday lodges in Kinnerley in Shropshire.
The lodges will be completed in phases of one lodge at a time over a number of months to suit the client’s requirements.
