150x225x1200mm Hyfloor Strip Foundation System Unilin XT/HYF is a 150mm thick engineered floor insulation system used to achieve Future Homes Standard and passive floor performance.
The Hyfloor Strip Foundation System provides effective insulation that has been detailed and installed professionally at the initial stages of any building project, and has multiple benefits.
Detailing properly at floor level sets the standard for the thermal performances and installation accuracy of the total building envelope; get the floor right and good practice is set for the rest of the build.
Hyfloor Strip Foundation System provides U-Value and Thermal Bridging performance to meet Future Homes Standard along with assurance of high compressive strength at foundation level.
Traditionally, insulating at floor level didn’t receive the attention by designers and site operatives that is now required to meet Future Homes Standard or Passive standards.
The real disconnect however is the relationship between the installation of the floor insulation and the wall insulation.
Typically completed as two separate skills at different times, and often by different teams, without consideration of the effect on Thermal Bridging at the wall/floor junction.
Unilin’s Floor & Foundation system supplies the designer with a traditional system that provides thermal performance and robust detailing.

· Using blocks suitable for multi-storey buildings with a high compressive strength.
· Traditional construction, avoiding the need for engineering assurances.
· Suitable for use with built-in full fill and partial fill wall insulation.
Hyfloor Strip Foundation System XT/HYF Installation Guidelines:
· Installing the Hyfloor insulation along with the foundation strip insulation at ground work stage ensures a thermally efficient junction.
· The inclusion of a medium density block provides a full suitable base for loading requirements.
· At this stage, (before the outer leaf is built) inspection and sign off of this critical junction can ensure compliance with the ACDs.
· Traditionally, block work contractors are relied upon to provide this robust detailing after riser walls have been built to DPC level.
· This normally entails pushing insulation into a cavity from above in contravention of SR325 guidance.
· Where the DPC is folded at wall-floor junctions it doubles in thickness which pushes out the insulation and causes issues within the cavity.
· Riser board has a 20mm fleece which can compensate for this while still maintaining the thermal efficiency of the insulation and integrity of the cavity offering a simple solution to a typically complicated problem.

We do not deliver on weekends and bank holidays. Sometimes we can deliver on Saturdays - please check with us before placing the order.
If you need any further information please contact us tel. 02081910776
We can help to calculate price per m2 or linear meter (one meter in length) cost, please just contact us via phone 02081910776, email or live chat. Alternatively, you can work it out yourself quickly and easily: to get cost per meter square please divide price shown in orange area by ''Required area (m2)'' Example price of £28.80 divided by board coverage 2.88m2 = cost of £10.00 per m2.
No matter whether you choose a local installer or a national company, there’s a few tips to help you find the right installer for your home insulation improvements, such as asking for recommendations and making sure that they’re part of a certification scheme. This makes sure that they have the right skills and standards of workmanship to carry out the installation, and you can be sure that they know exactly what they are doing.
4 TIPS FOR CHOOSING THE BEST INSULATION INSTALLER
1. Thermal inspection picture in portfolio
It’s worth seeing a installer’s previous work. There’s no harm asking if you can see any properties nearby that they’ve installed insulation in. Best way would be to see Infrared Thermal Imaging Inspections. Thermal cameras spot small, but key changes in temperature in different areas of a house, identifying problematic areas that the human eye never could and some that a visual inspection could only hypothesize.
Along with checking recommendations and previous work, finding reviews online can often be a great way to find out if they provide a good service or not. However, it’s best not to solely rely on reviews you may find or review websites, as there’s no controlling who writes them.
3. Compare prices
Comparing prices will also ensure companies can’t take advantage of you and give you a fair price.
4. Word of Mouth
The best way to find a great insulation installer is through recommendations. Make sure you ask friends and family. They will most likely give you their honest opinion and can tell you from first hand experience.
Whether you require a wall, cladding, external wall, loft or floor insulation fitted, you can find and hire your local insulation installers from popular UK web pages. A simple internet search will return thousands of potential installers near your area.
