Broadsword looking to offer innovative new screedboard floor solution

Broadsword are always trying to find new innovative ways to aid our construction and ensure our clients our offered services which mitigate rising costs whilst increasing productivity. Screedboard is another one of these. Predominently produced to assist the logistical difficulties associated with pumping wet screed to high-rise buildings within tight city centres. The practical installation and adaptable nature of screed board installed within through the floor solutions means that many different projects should consider screed board as an alternative to wet screeds.

Screedboard (A trademark of Cellecta LTD) is an award winning dry screed floorboard designed for acoustic soundproofing and under floor heating applications. It is an interlocking reinforced, high density calcium sulphate (gypsum) board. It is used in place of a free flowing or concrete screed and once laid, looks and feels like a traditional concrete screed. It can also be combined with a resilient layer (ScreedBoard 28) and be used to reduce the transmission of airborne and impact sound through separating floors.

It is ideal for a multitude of floor constructions because of its high density, high impact resistance and hard wearing surface.

There are many benefits to using Screedboard:
  • Excellent soundproofing
  • Efficient underfloor heating
  • No screws required
  • Seamless dry screed finish
  • 100% recycled material
  • Hard wearing surface
  • Accepts ceramic tiles
  • Interlocking edges
  • Easy to cut to size and install

Screedboard 20 is the ultimate for underfloor heating and sound reduction. This dry screed board has the lowest thermal resistance allowing ground water heat pumps and heat recovery to be at their most efficient. ScreedBoard 28 is a composite interlocking dry 20mm screed board, with an 8mm high performance resilient layer. It is the ultimate single layer acoustic overlay treatment, featuring interlocking edges for installation convenience. It is only 28mm thick and is suitable for all types of timber and concrete floor.

Dry screed floors are rapidly being recognised as the ideal solution for new build and refurbishment floors. Supplied in planks, ScreedBoard’s offer a modern, time saving solution that significantly speeds up build times compared to wet screeding methods.

On ground floors dry screed boards can help optimise underfloor heating conditions. On upper floors they can be used for high performance sound proofing (when combined with a resilient layer), or as a combined underfloor heating and sound proofing solution.

Installing a dry screedboard flooring system removes the drying times typically associated with wet screed acoustic flooring systems, screedboard floors are able to accept foot traffic as soon they are installed, allowing workers to install ceramic tiles, carpets and vinyl flooring immediately. Dry screed board sheets can be stored on site until they are required for installation.
