Breedon Gypscreed HTC

Breedon HTC is the latest innovation in flowing screed technology from Francis Flower Ltd offering a screed specifically designed for use with underfloor heating and cooling systems. It may be used with conventional heat sources as well as with renewable technologies. It is not pipe specific and is suitable for use with any underfloor heating system and in any type of construction subject to suitable engineering, including over timber floors, Lewis decking, and more traditional concrete and masonry systems. Suitable for both new build and refurbishment HTC offers an environmentally friendly screed to help improve the sustainability criteria of your project. Breedon HTC may be installed by approved installers only. It may be used to thinner depths than conventional screeds requiring just 20mm minimum cover to pipes subject to substrate suitability.
