Reduced initial construction costs and lower heating costs make WarmFloor a compelling alternative to a standard beam and block floor. WarmFloor is suitable for almost any structure but is most commonly used in housing, from a single dwelling to a complete housing development. Milbank WarmFloor offers simple, cost effective, insulated flooring to self-builders and construction professionals alike.
The floor is easily assembled using lightweight expanded polystyrene (EPS) blocks fitted between our standard Milbank pre-stressed concrete beams (either 155mm or 225mm deep) and then finished with a structural concrete screed.
As every building is different, Milbank design your floor to achieve the specific targeted U-Value (as low as 0.06W/m²K) together with the structural layout of the floor to suit. We can then manufacture the components and supply materials only or our experienced fixing teams can install WarmFloor for you.
- Easy to install – Does not need any specialist skills or tools, and we will be on hand to guide you every step of the way.
- Quick to install – each EPS panel fitted is the equivalent to 5 standard concrete blocks – no further insulation layer or additional materials are required.
- Clean, safe and easy to handle – lightweight blocks only weigh around 2Kg.
- Cost effective – Designed specifically to meet your U-Value which means any savings on materials are passed onto you.
- Lower cost – warm floor can save you money. The cost is normally lower compared to constructing, insulating and finishing a conventional beam and block floor.
- Minimal floor depth – only requires 70mm structural topping over the beam height meaning enhanced U-Value AND increased ceiling height compared to conventional floors.
- Underfloor heating compatible – heating pipework is simply held in place using plastic pegs that push into the EPS panel.
- Proven Technology – now in use for over 10 years.Industry compliant – Milbank WarmFloor is BBA certified.
