Solid ground floor: Insulated above groundbearing slab

Design and Installation

Installing thermal insulation above the slab isolates the thermal mass of slab from the building interior, giving the building a rapid thermal response. Where heating pipes are embedded in the screed, insulating immediately beneath the screed improves the responsiveness of the heating system.
