James Hardie, the fibre cement building materials manufacturer, has launched a new structural flooring system into the UK market, HardieFloor.
The patented fibre cement, tongue and groove boards are perfectly suited to residential building projects, as a substitute for unreliable chipboard.
This new fibre cement floor – which is impervious to all weather types – dries out completely if wet and suffers no long term damage. Tiles can be applied directly on to HardieFloor boards eliminating the need for additional membranes and adhesive.
HardieFloor system works very well with under floor heating systems as it enables much more heat to be transmitted into a room. The robust floor boards do not expand or contract in any way with the heat, ensuring that the tiled floor remains completely intact.
