Celotex has announced the release of Celotex FI5000, a premium performance flooring solution, suitable for concrete slab, beam and block, suspended timber, and underfloor heating applications.
Offering enhanced thermal insulation with a super low lambda value of 0.021W/mK, Celotex FI5000 achieves compliance to UK building regulations with better U-values and thinner solutions.
FI5000 combines best in class PIR insulation with an innovative composite facer featuring a built-in vapour control layer (VCL), enabling direct screed, without the need for an additional separating layer. Ideal for a range of flooring applications, FI5000 features an enhanced compressive strength value of ≥175 kPa.
Paul Evans, Celotex head of marketing, said: “Thermal performance has become a critical element of modern floor design. Celotex FI5000 is a welcomed addition to our comprehensive and innovative range, and will ensure specifiers minimise the downward heat loss in buildings whilst at the same time compliment the traditional design goals of floors.”
Offering excellent sustainable qualities, the insulation component of FI5000 is A rated when compared to the BRE Green Guide.
Available in thicknesses from 75mm to 125mm and a board size of 1200mm x 2400mm, Celotex FI5000 can be installed in a range of flooring applications and is supported by the Celotex Technical Centre and Thermal Bridging Models.
