Gypsol TS-15 is a unique and versatile screed format which combines high strength, thin depth and rapid installation to offer a robust material which can be used either bonded or un-bonded over a solid substrate. NO other thin screed solution currently available in the UK market allows such rapid un-bonded installation.
In this project we see a brand new Multi Story apartment scheme by house builder Crest Nicholson using a revolutionary modern fusion construction technique. The ground floor construction included pre-insulated precast concrete planks. As with all of these flooring systems the surface of the concrete planks needs to be regulated to flatten and smooth it following installation to allow floor coverings to be placed. This is often achieved by means of a thin levelling screed. In this instance the client had expected to have to use a labour intensive and relatively costly bagged smoothing compound. However experienced and technically savvy screed installers Certus Ltd were able to search for alternatives and having spoken to our technical and specification team came up with an alternative specification using un-bonded TS-15. The TS-15 screed, supplied by local manufacturers S Morris Ltd, was laid onto a simple 500gauge polythene slip membrane at a minimum depth of 15mm. Requiring no reinforcement and saving considerable amounts of time and labour, the screed was pumped and finished in the normal manner adopted for all Gypsol screeds. The 180m2 floor was completed within 1 hour.
The screeder said “We selected TS-15 not only due to its cost effectiveness but also because of the ease, very high speed and accuracy of installation as well as the level of service offered by the Gypsol team”. He went on to say “we look forward to using this and other Gypsol screeds on other projects very soon”
