The Ametalin Floor Insulation comes in two varieties. One is the ThermaFloor is an extra heavy duty double-sided reflective foam underfloor insulation that is used under floors with a sealed airspace between the flooring and the enclosed sub-floor space. It is made with rigid high-density XPE foam that resists flapping with open sub-floor. It contributes a reflective R-value when installed adjacent to an air cavity and reduces draughts through strip flooring. With specifically placed weep holes throughout the ThermaFloor for water drainage, it helps reduce the risk of condensation.
The other type of floor insulation from Ametalin is the SilverFloor. This type of insulation is used for under floors with a sealed airspace between the flooring and enclosed sub-floor spacing. With built-in 5mm weep holes throughout the membrane, it helps prevent the build-up of moisture. It reduces drafts through strip flooring and achieves a winter total system R-value of R3.6 and a summer total system R-value of R1.5. The SilverFloor insulation can be used for both new and existing buildings.
