When the floor is on the ground floor or above unheated rooms
as cellars and garages, remember to prepare an underfloor thermal screed in order to limit downward dispersions to a minimum.
If the thickness you have available is abundant, you can choose between different ways to create the insulation, but if the space is limited, then you can form the insulating layer as a covering of the systems with Bioart-Thermal Cork Screed, on the surface thus obtained you can floor directly with tile, wooden parquet, terracotta or other materials.
CHOOSE THE MOST APPROPRIATE WAY TO REALIZE YOUR CORK THERMAL SUBSTRATE
Artimestieri has created Bioart thermal cork and ready-mixed lime ready-to-use screed, where all the components are natural: cork, lime and anti-cracking fibers in wheat straw. If we do not ask the insulating screed for particular consolidation effects (in which case it is necessary to resort to cement and consolidation nets) the hardness of Bioart-Thermal cork screed is completely sufficient to obtain a light insulating screed with excellent bearing capacity. Bioart-Thermal cork screed dries easily due to the breathability of natural hydraulic lime and the poor absorption of water by the cork grain. The use of Bioart-thermal cork screed is particularly recommended when there is no space for the insulation of the subfloor, in these cases with the use of the thermal subfloor by Artimestieri a thermal insulation and a directly pavable surface are created. thermal cork
Bioart-thermal cork screed is a natural alternative to lightened cementitious substrates with expanded clay, polystyrene or other unhealthy and poorly insulating materials: the cork and lime substrate is natural, healthy, robust, light and heat-insulating.
OTHER GRANULAR CORK BASED THERMAL INSULATION SUBSTRATES
Granular cork can be spread dry without binders: this is the easiest and cheapest way of thermally insulating a subfloor or attic.
When the floor is structured in wood and no load bearing capacity is required for the screed, granular cork can also be used loose in the underlying cavities: loose, not mixed, it has its maximum insulating power.
To obtain a light but walkable thermal substrate, it can be mixed with Sodium silicate which makes the screed more compact and sufficiently load-bearing: a very valid and recommended method in attics or substrates. The walkability that is obtained is sufficient for an attic / attic
For a partially lightened substrate, granular cork can be used as a percentage with sand: 50% or another percentage of your choice
THE GRANULAR CORK MOST SUITABLE FOR THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF INSULATING SUBSTRATE
For dry cork in attics or to fill wooden substrates, we recommend the 3 / 14mm grain. The most suitable cork to be mixed with Sodium silicate is 3 / 14mm for a light, medium walkable substrate, or with 3 / 8mm for a more robust insulating screed (with a higher dosage of Sodium silicate)
To obtain a lightened insulating screed, 3 / 8mm granulate can be used as a percentage with sand.
To obtain an insulating screed in cork and lime only as Artimestieri Bioart thermal screed, 3 / 5mm grain is recommended.
