Fibre Reinforced Screed Thickness

Fibre Reinforced Screed Thickness

Andy Parkin, Managing Director of the Multi Award-Winning Speed Screed. I’m here today to talk about fibre reinforced screed thickness.  It is something that we are asked from time to time about. Exactly how thick can the screed go down to?

Bonded Screed

With the screed being laid onto a structural substrate, a traditional screed as defined by the British Standard will go down to 40 mm bonded. The screed should be bonded to the substrate using a primer/bonding agent or slurry mix.

Floating Screed

If it is floating construction, then it will go down to 65 mm for domestic and 75 mm for commercial applications. And when we say fibre reinforced, that is the polypropylene fibres in the sand and cement mix.

Specialist Fibre Reinforced Screed

There are other specialist semi-dry screeds that will allow you to go down as low as 10 mm bonded and 35 mm for floating construction. These screeds will also contain fibres.

Smoothing compounds can contain micro-fibers and can be bonded from as little as 1 mm directly onto a concrete substrate.

I hope that has given you a broad overview of fibre reinforced screed thickness.  We are here to help you with your screed questions. Contact us.
