A new video demonstrates the benefits of airpop insulated floors, which have been designed to conserve energy, reduce fuel bills and enhance thermal efficiency in new build properties.

Nowadays, most new build properties are constructed with cavity wall and roof insulation as standard. In a bid to continue creating efficient, warmer homes, the EPS Group aspires to reduce the installation of non-insulated flooring in new apartments and houses too.

Floor insulation can be achieved with EPS’ ‘engineered air’ insulated flooring, airpop. Designed to reduce fuel bills and bring benefits in energy conservation, airpop is supplied in simple slab or tailored ‘beam and block’ applications.

Comprising 98% air, which is bounded in a polymer matrix, airpop boasts BBA Approval and BRE Certification. The material is non-toxic, insoluble, non-hygroscopic and resistant to rot; moisture contact will not cause deterioration, or encourage fungi and bacteria to grow.

Once it reaches the end of its life, airpop can be completely recycled.

Installing airpop insulated floors

The lightweight material can be transported, lifted into place and cut on site, allowing for a straightforward installation with no specialist equipment necessary. Once secured, the insulation offers a level surface to take the final screed.

In addition, airpop can create a ventilated airspace and act as a ‘carrying board’ for underfloor heating systems below the screed.
