About Slab Shield Insulation
SlabShield™ Insulation was designed specifically for use under concrete slabs, where floors heights are restricted. It is lightweight and cuts easily with a utility knife and is only 11mm thick. SlabShield™ moulds itself to the contours of the subfloor to provide a better and stronger finished screed.
SlabShield™ provides an air infiltration barrier, vapour barrier and boosts thermal performance, in one simple to install product. The first layer of foam provides a thermal break between the warm slab and the foil. While the second layer of foam provides an additional thermal break between the foil and the cold hard-core. Our Low-‘E’ emissivity foil distributes the heat evenly across the floor, giving a faster response time and results in a more efficient heating system. The foil is protected and unaffected by the chemical reaction that cures when foil comes in contact with uncured concrete. SlabShield™ will not crack or crumble with normal job-site-abuses. It is puncture resistant up to 93 psi and crush resistant up to 70 psi.
SlabShield Insulation has innovative interlocking tabs that provide a perfect seam when using several rolls side by side. The edges are overlapped and taped to maintain a VCL.
VCL – Is a Vapour Control Layer (VCL). Moisture Vapour Transmission Rate (MVTR) > 2000 MNs/g.
