Reinforced Screed System
Screed reinforcement is a recommendation for use in screed constructions. There are various options that can be adopted which consist of fibres or metal mesh. The general purpose is to restrain the drying stress generated from the cement in a screed system. The natural process is for the screed to try to curl and crack as well as shrinkage that is inherent in cementitious products. The reinforcement is designed that if a crack occurs, it will hit the mesh / fibres and deflect the stress, therefore reducing the effect. A crack does not necessarily mean a failed screed and there are appropriate methods for repair, depending on the final floor finish. Generally thicker finishes would not require any further maintenance. Tiles and vinyl finishes would require a repair and generally an epoxy can be successfully applied as recognised in the British Standard.
Fibre Reinforced Screeds incorporate polypropylene fibres which largely use fabric reinforcement for control of shrinkage and cracking. Even dispersion of fibres throughout the screed section enhances the screed in terms of compressive, flexural and impact strength. Fibre reinforced screeds available to suit your requirements. Specialists reinforced grades for under floor heating are also available.
All our floor screeders are equipped with laser levels to achieve a perfectly flat finish to the required level.
Top quality floor layers can easily achieve a surface regularity of SR1.
