Ground Floor Insulation
U-value CalculatorStart your U-value calculation >
Ground floors are a key component of a building, and the construction of the ground floor needs to be considered an important part of the design process. Ground floors are usually constructed as either solid ground floors or suspended ground floors.
Design considerations such as existing ground conditions, the presence of Radon gas or Methane gas and the intended use of the building are among the factors that will dictate the choice of ground floor and also the insulation used within them.
Celotex and Isover manufacture and supply glass mineral wool slabs and rolls along with rigid Polyisocyanurate (PIR) boards that can be considered suitable for a wide range of applications across solid and suspended ground floors.
