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. It offers a good solution for upgrading the thermal performance of an uninsulated concrete floor. When upgrading an existing floor it is important to consider the impact of the change of floor levels on doors and thresholds.
