Beam & Polystyrene Panel Flooring
FP McCann offers a choice of two energy-efficient beam and polystyrene panel systems, outlined below.
Top Sheet System
Our top sheet flooring system incorporates a polystyrene panel which sits within the depth of the floor beam, as well as including an overboard top sheet to sit on top of the floor. U-values of 0.11 W/m²K or better can be achieved with our top sheet system. This system is easier to install than the undercloaking system, creates very minimal waste and has been tested to allow block partitions to be built off the floor.
We also supply an undercloaking system which incorporates one panel that fits within the floor beam depth, as well as falling beneath the level of the beam to allow for complete thermal coverage. U-values from 0.08 W/m²K or better can be achieved utilising the undercloaking system. This system has been around over 10 years now and is well known by the majority of installers. It offers a wider range in U-values and only requires ‘one fix’ when it comes to infilling with polystyrene as no top sheet is required.
