The installation process of EXPOL concrete floor insulation is quick and easy. Simply butt the sheets together on top of the DPC (polythene). It is important that the polystyrene sheets are not placed under any footings or thickenings for load bearing walls.
The sheets can be taped together however this is not absolutely necessary. Once the sheets have been laid, place the reinforcing mesh on top using the required mesh chairs. See our Masterspec document for further information.
