Marmox Insulation – The power of technology

Just because you cannot see it, doesn’t mean you do not need it!

Marmox Insulation

 

In these energy-conscious times, people are looking for home heating that’s highly efficient as well as comfortable to live with. Undertile and undercarpet heating are popular choices, but a significant amount of heat can be absorbed by the floor below. Independent research has proven that up to 50% of radiant undertile heating is lost down through the sub-floor.

The good news is that Marmox Insulation Boards allow you to create an underfloor system that directs the heat upwards into the room. This will significantly improve warmup time of the floor and greatly reduce running costs, and even more so when using a programmable thermostat.  Laid on top of existing boards or new floors before tiling or carpet laying, they provide an ideal base for cost-effective underfloor heating

 

Advantages 

  • Acts as a thermal barrier and significantly reduces heat loss to the substrate.
  • Easy to work with and install into new and existing building projects.
    • over concrete using a flexible tile adhesive, similar to installing large tiles.
    • over timber with glue and screw gun
  • Removes the need for tile and slate underlay, provided the sub-floor is structurally sound and flat.
  • Completely waterproof and will not absorb moisture, making it ideal for bathrooms and wetrooms.
  • Acts as an excellent acoustic barrier on timber and concrete.

Consider this once-off investment that will save you money in the long-term.  Some of the benefits of using Marmox are all listed above, now can you think of any negatives to this?
