Limecrete Floors

Limecrete benefits and details:

  • Breathable Material: Limecrete’s unique composition allows moisture to permeate, preventing damp and promoting a healthier living environment.
  • Eco-Friendly: Made with natural hydraulic lime and lightweight aggregates, it's free from cement ensuring maximum breathability and minimal environmental impact.
  • Enhanced Durability: Reinforced with fibres, Limecrete Floors provide additional strength and longevity, making them a reliable choice for any setting.
  • Versatile Design: Whether you’re laying a slab and screed floor or opting for a slabless design, Limecrete adapts to your project needs, offering cost-effective solutions without compromising on quality:
    • Slabless Floor: Cost-effective and shallow, it's the go-to choice. RFG insulation + limecrete screed = simplicity.
    • Slab and Screed: Ideal for large projects with additional work planned after installation. Think churches/cathedrals.
  • Under-Floor Heating Compatible: The insulative properties of Limecrete make it an excellent companion for under-floor heating systems, ensuring efficient heat distribution and cosy interiors.
  • Moisture Management: With a base of non-capillary material, Limecrete Floors effectively manage ground moisture, keeping your space dry and comfortable.

Applications:

  • Heritage buildings
  • Residential homes
  • Commercial spaces
  • Renovation projects

Choose Limecrete Floors for a sustainable, functional, and aesthetically pleasing foundation that stands the test of time. Embrace the future of flooring with Limecrete – where eco-friendly meets excellence.

The installation is very straightforward, an example specification would be as below:

  • Floor finish
  • 100mm lime screed (2.5:1 by volume, sharp sand:NHL5)
  • Underfloor heating (UFH) if required embedded within screed
  • Geogrid for attaching UFH pipes if required
  • Geotextile membrane
  • 200mm compacted foam glass
  • Firm sub-soil

Based on a floor area of 50m² with an exposed perimeter of 28.5m = U value 0.25 W/(m²K)

It can be complicated working out volumes and U-values for your floor, so just tell us what you need and we will work it out for you. For example, we can calculate all the design information you need for your floor: thickness, insulation values using our accredited design programme, along with full material quotes including delivery.
