Increases Thermal Performance
No Fibres, No Itching
Occupies Less Space
Won't Absorb Moisture
Slab Shield is engineered to not only help prevent heat transfer from the slab to the ground but also to transmit heat more evenly across the floor. It easily moulds to the shape of the subfloor to create a stronger slab and it won’t crack, break or crumble when being installed. SlabShield acts as a VCL and the closed cell foam protects the foil core from coming in direct contact with uncured concrete.
“We usually used SlabShield, but we ran out on our last project, so we doubled up the Quinn Therm Insulation. When the job was finished, and we turned on the Under Floor Heating the areas with SlabShield heated up much quicker. Not only is it easy to work with, but we’ve noticed.”

Why spend time and money installing a vapour control layer (VCL) or air infiltration barrier than has no thermal benefit? Low-E is the vapour control layer that reflects 97% radiant heat.
