Energy efficient by design; Spantherm is being installed on an exclusive new development in Magherafelt. The development will encompass 70 new homes and will be completed in 2019 by main contractor McAlister Builders.
Spantherm is an insulated, precast concrete flooring system designed specifically for residential and commercial ground floors. The composite slab combines structural concrete and high performance expanded polystyrene insulation to supply a structural floor that minimises cold bridging and maximises thermal performance. Spantherm Plus and Graphite are also available for improved thermal performance.
This structural flooring system is mechanically placed, using lorry mounted cranes to improve Health and Safety on-site, reducing labour, waste, risks and cost. The floor is installed quickly and is thermally efficient and affordable.

With a general skills shortage on-site and the increasing burden of health and safety legislation, house builders are increasingly receptive to a system like Spantherm which radically reduces the amount of on-site labour needed to fit flooring and the associated reduction in handling and vehicle movements.
