Nu-Heat Project Manager Andrew Butt says that as a dry floor screed, Knauf Brio is a good alternative to traditional wet screed. It enables work to be carried out room by room, making it ideal for renovations. Brio gives the end result of a floor that feels like a ‘quality’ solid floor with an improved surface when tiles are to be used. Additionally it has good acoustic benefits, as it is much denser than chipboard, reducing airborne sound transmission.
One of the major long-term advantages is excellent heat transfer. ‘With Brio on top it takes less time and less energy to reach the right temperature, making it better for the environment and ideal to use in integrated systems with our range of air source and ground source heat pumps,’ says Andrew. Nu-Heat has a number of floor constructions available using Brio in place of chipboard, including joists, acoustic and floating floor.
