I’m Andy Parkin, Managing Director of the Multi Award-Winning Speed Screed. I’m just here today to talk about liquid screed for underfloor heating.
Liquid Screed For Underfloor Heating
Why is liquid screed the natural choice for underfloor heating? I think first and foremost, it’s for its thermal conductivity, its superior performance. With a typical liquid screed being almost twice as thermally conductive as a traditional sand and cement, just think of the long term savings that you will get from liquid screed for underfloor heating.
Save Money With Liquid Screed
The liquid screed will heat and cool quicker, so you will get more controllability from the actual screed. The efficiency is greatly improved with liquid screed for underfloor heating, and the long term cost savings over the life of the screed, which could be over 10, 15, 20 plus years is quite substantial.
Typically, liquid screed will go down to 30 mm above the pipes (standard calcium sulphate version), with a special version of the product going down to only 20 mm above the pipes. That is 45 mm 35 mm respectively based on the pipes being 15 mm.
The screed is suitable for all the usual floor coverings, with the correct adhesives you can lay your traditional vinyl, wood, ceramic, and carpet.

Bay sizes can be up to 300 m2 based on an aspect ratio of 2:1, which means that you have less joints to contend with. Up to 1,500 m2 can be laid per day, so productivity is immense and large projects can be completed very quickly.
One of the benefits of using a calcium sulphate liquid screed is that it is eco-friendly. A recycled binder that would ordinarily go to landfill is used instead of the high carbon footprint cement, and so it is very eco-friendly.
Liquid screed for underfloor heating is the natural in terms of performance, eco-friendliness, and cost savings over the long term.
