Floor Screed for Offices & Public Buildings
If you require a new Self Levelling Floor Screed floor for an office, school, or public building, or simply need a smoothing compound to repair or renovate an existing floor, we at Fast Floor Screed Ltd have a Floor Screed solution to suit your flooring needs.
If you need Fast Track floor levelling or floor renovation for an office or other public building
Public buildings such as hospitals, schools usually require a final linoleum floor covering. To install this the structural sub-floor requires levelling to excellent tolerances, fast application and fast drying times, preferably within one week of application.
Fast Floor Screed Ltd have a floor solution to these exact requirements:
2 – 30 mm liquid cementitious self levelling Screed – can be covered in 48 hours
20 – 60mm liquid cementitious self levelling Screed – can be covered in 4 days
Application is extremely fast – applied at 500 m2 per day and walkable in 6 hours
Our Alpha Hemihydrate Screed’s advanced composition means that it reacts quickly with water, providing consistent, reliable drying characteristics and considerably faster drying times, enabling follow-on trades to proceed without delay. This has the advantage of ensuring your project completes in a timely manner, ready for floor coverings – offering the architect or designer flexibility.
A further advantage is there is usually no need for a Damp Proof Membrane.
It lays smoothly and provides a superb finish ready for floor covering
Our Alpha Hemihydrate Screed’s easy workability means that it mixes and flows smoothly, with none of the inconsistencies that are inherent in synthetic Anhydrite Screeds. We only use, German-made, CASEA Südanit 280 Alpha Hemihydrate Screed; which is stable and does not segregate – there is no surface skin formation as there is with synthetic Anhydrites. The fully dried floor Screed should be covered with a floor finish such as tiles, linoleum, parquet, cork or carpet.
Using our flooring solution means less finishing and fewer joints
Consistent drying and smooth laying mean no finishing before final floor coverings are laid and there’s no need for additional smoothing compounds.
The ideal solution for UFH or sound insulation for office blocks or a public building
Our flowing Screed is particularly suitable for applications over Under Floor Heating (UFH) and cavity floors. Südanit 280 Alpha Hemihydrate Screed is a liquid self-compacting, self-flowing, self-levelling Screed which flows to fully encapsulate underfloor pipes or wires and reduces the potential for air bubbles/pockets which can have an adverse effect on heat transfer.
With little preparation required, when Südanit 280 Alpha Hemihydrate Screed is specified with the right type of insulation – it can achieve 51 DB – far above the standards required by Part E of Building Regulations.
To drastically reduce potential noise pollution, we can install the floor ‘floating’, which means we apply our Screeds onto acoustic insulation. The application of this package can be applied as thin as 35mm including the acoustic insulation. Screed products used for this type of application, are specially designed for this purpose, and cannot be met using traditional sand & cement screeds.
Acoustic flooring is ideally suited for timber joist suspended first floors and renovation projects where floor to ceiling heights should be maximised. We can fit an under-Screed product designed to isolate Screeds from the main structure of the building, reducing impact energy generated by general footfall.
Regupol® E48 is used under all types of floor Screeds in most new build constructions including apartments, schools, hospitals, hotels, libraries and supermarkets. Fast Floor Screed can supply and fit both the acoustic insulation and new Screed in approx two days -depending on the size of the area. Regupol E48 is CE marked and has a European Technical Approval.
What about re-levelling or simply renovating the existing office floor?
We supply and fit a range of renovation and levelling Screed products that can be applied bonded, unbonded and floating. Ideally suited for applications such as:
- Levelling existing concrete floors, as a bonded application 2 – 60 mm
- Levelling or covering existing floors where residues of old carpet glue, tiles, paint etc. are present in an unbounded application, i.e. onto PU sheeting, acoustic or thermal insulation
- Creating a solid floor over an existing timber floor, for example in case of renovating a bathroom or any room on a first floor
