Solid Floor

The modern planning and design approach for public, commercial, manufacturing and even residential buildings requires maximum flexibility and maximum technical performance for every system involved in creating the areas they are made up of.

The SOLID FLOOR system is a raised screed that allows for a variety of different solutions with dry laying at a limited cost: it makes it easy to compensate for, or to create, variations in height on a floor, create underfloor system cavities, integrate heating and cooling systems and much more.

It is a quicker, cheaper replacement for any light screeds, raised floors with igloo, air chambers for the evacuation of Radon gas, etc.

Components: milled panels, various types of steel supports with high-density rubber seals, glue for the joints, profiles for trap doors.

The distinguishing feature of the system is the possibility to create continuous raised screeds, thanks to the original Knauf calcium sulphate panels, with tongue and groove edges, able to offer maximum performance in static, acoustic, resistance and fire protection terms. This surface is ideal for laying porcelain stoneware tiles of any size, using both cement adhesives and dry-laying solutions.

Advantages

Mechanical resistance

The mechanical performance and durability of the system are guaranteed thanks to the high standards of production, the uniform quality of the materials and a compression process during the manufacturing of the panels that makes it possible to obtain a product with a density of more than 1500 kg/m3. SOLID FLOOR is available in a variety of thicknesses and sizes, in order to satisfy a full range of planning and design requirements. .

Easy to lay

At the production stage, the panels are milled along the edges for perfect assembly. A primer is also applied to protect them during transport and protect them from abrasion once laid on-site.

Acoustic performance and comfort

When combined with the appropriate accessories, the system allows for noise reduction of up to 29 db, making it suitable for most projects.

Fire resistance and reaction

This system is classified as A1 according to the UNI EN 13501-1 standard, since it is “nonflammable” and is classified as REI30 according to the Uni EN 13501-2 fire protection standard.

Flexibility and ease of inspection

The system comes complete with all the accessories necessary to install all components properly. Metal elements are also available to create trap doors for inspection in the same finish as the rest of the floor. It is also possible to install diving walls directly on top of SOLID FLOOR surfaces.

Surface finishes

Once Solid Floor has been correctly positioned, it has the appearance of a seamless, flat and rigid surface on which porcelain stoneware can be fitted in the desired layout.
