Long-Lasting and Hard-Wearing Reinforced Floor Screed
Reinforced screed is a type of flooring material that is designed solely to provide additional strength and stability to concrete floors. It is often used in industrial and commercial environments where vehicles, machinery and equipment will be in use, as well as settings where there is a high level of foot traffic.
The main purpose of reinforced screed is to control shrinkage, curling and cracking that can appear during the drying process. Reinforced screed installation requires a professional contractor who is able to assess the specific needs of the space and determine the appropriate reinforcing material needed for the project.
Concrete Flooring Solutions are able to combine aesthetics and durability to provide long-lasting and attractive floors with reliable durability. Get in touch with a member of the team today to discuss your options for reinforced screed flooring.
What Is Reinforced Screed?
A reinforced screed is a mixture of sand, cement and water that is poured over a concrete base which is then supported with a mesh of synthetic or steel fibres. The reinforcing material provides an additional layer of strength to the screed, making it more resistant to damage and impact.
The polypropylene fibres added guarantee that the screed will be able to better support the cracking and curling that can occur naturally during the drying process, improving resistance and preventing larger cracks from forming.
What Are the Benefits of Reinforced Screed?
The type of reinforcement used should always be selected based on the type of screed, the depth, and the method of mixing. With that being said, there are some general benefits for every type of reinforced screed:
Reinforced screed provides additional strength and stability to concrete floors, improving their resistance to damage from impact and heavy use.
Reinforced screed can be customised to meet the exact requirements of a space. Additional materials can be added to enhance chemical resistance, waterproofing, and insulation as well as aesthetic customisation like colouring and finishes.
One of the biggest selling points of reinforced screed is its versatility. It can be used in a variety of settings from industrial to residential spaces and is suitable for a range of applications such as factory flooring and warehouses.
While the initial installation of reinforced screed can be costly, the guaranteed longevity and durability provide a cost-effective investment in the long run as you will be able to avoid the need for repairs and replacements.
The primary purpose of reinforced screed is to reinforce the surface’s ability to withstand the wear and tear of daily use and to improve the durability of the existing concrete floor beneath, making it a long-lasting and highly stable flooring option.
Why Choose Reinforced Screed?
Overall, reinforced screed is an excellent option for both industrial and commercial settings where a durable flooring material is needed. It offers stability and strength which can be customised to meet the specific needs of any space.
Fibre-reinforced screed application is suitable for use on a number of existing bases, including:
- Solid concrete floor slabs
- Insulating later to isolate screed from the base
- As a topping to lightweight screeds
- Precast concrete units or beams with reinforcement
