A new guide is available from Fermacell outlining how to plan and install its dry flooring systems.
The new guide covers the practical and cost-effective nature of dry flooring as an alternative to conventional wet screed to concrete floors, and also highlights how the product’s thermal conductivity properties make it an efficient overlay to underfloor heating systems. Good acoustic properties can also be achieved using an optional wood fibre layer to the gypsum fibreboard base.
The brochure gives an overview of suitable areas for application. Further in the guide, there’s advice and step-by-step guides on suitable substrates for installing Fermacell onto and how these should be prepared.
Specific advice is provided on specifying Fermacell’s cement-based Powerpanel H2O for flooring exposed to moisture and humidity, along with example drawings of construction details for all different flooring combinations.
