Redefining easy to install

Installed in minutes, not days.

Spantherm is an insulated, precast concrete flooring system designed specifically for residential and commercial ground floors.  By producing high performance insulated structural concrete units off-site we have redefined the speed of installing a fully insulated ground floor.  This is the next generation of structural flooring systems designed as the efficient alternative to labour intensive beam and block installations.

Spantherm is BBA certified.

Outstanding Thermal Performance

Spantherm is a fabric first solution, integrating structural concrete with expanded polystyrene insulation. The tightly butted units lock in the thermal performance efficiently across the slab.

Part L 2013 Compliance

Spantherm is available in 3 performance options designed to boost your building’s performance within SAP.

Please refer to our table for floor performance based on actual Perimeter/ Area ratios.

Achieve U-value as low as  0.12W/m²K

Spantherm Plus based on a P/A ratio of 0.6

Reduced Cold Bridging

Spantherm is designed to reduce cold bridging at wall/ floor junctions making an important contribution to Part L performance.

The Psi values offer improvement over both the default and approved values within table K1 SAP 2012.

Typical Psi value*  0.11W/mK

Spantherm Load Spans

Domestic Live Load of 
1.5KN/M²

No Partitions

Stud Partitions 
1.5KN/M²
Blockwork Partition 
(6KN/M²)
Floor Finish   Maximum Clear Span (MM)  
100mm Concrete Screed 6150 5850 5000
75mm Concrete Screed 6400 6050 5100
50mm Concrete Screed 6650 6250 5200
25mm Concrete Screed 6850 6500 5300
10mm self levelling compound* 6400 6050 5250

 

Note: based on unfactored domestic live load of 1.5kNm2 *Deflection is the limiting factor in this instance.

Spantherm requires a bearing of 100mm on masonry.  Units must be supported as per the construction detail provided for each project.

Partitions can be be built off the floor, when provided for in the design.  Generally 6kN/m blockwork walls run parallel to span (load shared between ribs of adjacent units).  Walls to be built off the floor will be indicated on layout drawings.

Garage Floors: to comply with the distributed load of 2.5kN/m2 or concentrated load of 9.0kN required for a domestic garage, Spantherm requires a minimum 50mm screed with a compressive strength of 25N/mm2 reinforced with A142 steel mesh applied directly.

Grout is used to bond the units together (C25/30 concrete with max aggregate size 10mm).
