Traditional Sand & Cement fibre Screed System
Traditional floor screed basically consists of sand & cement mixed at a ratio of between 3 to 5 parts sand & 1 part cement. In the majority of cases 4 to 1 is quite sufficient. In the past reinforcement was achieved by using Hex wire (chicken wire) or D49 mesh. In the early 90's Polypropylene Fibres (PPF) started to become very popular, and today PPF is the most common used reinforcement for traditional floor screed. Traditional screed drying times vary according to the weather conditions, depth and manufacturers admixtures used. Laying Traditional floor screed is applied with a straight-edge, wooden / plastic float and finished with a trowel or power float. The basics are to find four level points, level between two with the straight-edge, level between the opposite two, and pull off between the 'screeds' with the straight-edge, to find a flat area.
These screeds can be used in all situations where a final covering is applied. Sand cement screed can be laid to falls and is suitable for wet areas but will not tolerate being saturated. Shower areas etc need to have a waterproof covering i.e. vinyl, tiles etc.
All our floor screed ers are equipped with laser levels to achieve a perfectly flat finish to the required level.
