For underfloor heating applications, Recticel PIR Insulation Boards offer a dual advantage. They not only retain heat within your space but also ensure even distribution of heat from your underfloor heating system. This results in a consistently warm and comfortable environment in your home or office.
Installing these insulation boards is a straightforward process. When used in underfloor heating, they are simply laid down over the subfloor, followed by the installation of the heating system, and finally the finish flooring. When used beneath concrete slabs, they are installed on a level and compacted subbase, followed by a damp-proof membrane, reinforcement mesh, and the concrete slab.

Q: What are Recticel PIR Insulation Boards?
A: Recticel PIR Insulation Boards are high-performance insulation solutions made from Polyisocyanurate (PIR). They are known for their exceptional thermal efficiency, durability, and ease of installation. These boards are an excellent choice for use in a variety of applications, including underfloor heating systems and beneath concrete slabs.
Q: How do Recticel PIR Insulation Boards enhance underfloor heating performance?
A: Recticel PIR Insulation Boards effectively minimize heat loss by providing a highly insulative layer beneath your underfloor heating system. They ensure the heat is directed upward into your space, leading to a more evenly heated and comfortable environment.
Q: How can these boards be installed under floors?
A: Installation of Recticel PIR Insulation Boards is a straightforward process. Here's a simple guide:
Start with a clean, dry, and level subfloor.
Lay the Recticel PIR Insulation Boards over the subfloor, ensuring they fit tightly together to avoid thermal bridging.
For underfloor heating systems, install the heating elements on top of the insulation boards.
Depending on the type of heating system, you might need a layer of screed over the heating elements.
Finally, install your chosen finish flooring on top.
Q: How do Recticel PIR Insulation Boards benefit installation beneath concrete slabs?
A: These insulation boards are robust with a high compressive strength, making them ideal for use beneath concrete slabs where structural integrity is essential. They provide an effective thermal barrier, reducing heat loss through the floor and enhancing energy efficiency.
Q: Are Recticel PIR Insulation Boards readily available?
A: Yes, Recticel PIR Insulation Boards are readily available at The UFH Group. We maintain a consistent inventory to ensure we can promptly meet your project needs.
