IMPORTANT: On 1 September 2017, Celotex took the precautionary measure to temporarily suspend the supply of Celotex FR5000, Celotex CG5000, Celotex CF5000 and Celotex SL5000 while we investigate the results of recent tests (Parts 6 and 7 of British Standard 476). Materials relating to these products are for information only.
Over the last few months we have continued our Technical Twitter Takeover’s, featuring monthly hour long sessions dedicated to different topics affected by insulation and what we do here at Celotex. Within the Celotex Technical Centre (CTC) our fantastic team of technical advisors get asked a range of different questions so it is great to take some of those questions and explain them through a short afternoon of Twitter activity. It is also a great opportunity for those watching from across the social media stratosphere with a project enquiry to send in a Tweet using #AskCelotex to our technical team member to provide assistance.
The Celotex Floor Technical Twitter Takeover
So, February’s TTT focused on the top of your house with a pitched roof application and the topic for March was at the other end, looking at floor applications. Here are some of the questions that Celotex are asked regularly about floor applications and insulation solutions.
Question 1 – What membranes should I use in a solid ground floor with Celotex insulation?
Celotex should be positioned above a dpm and below a minimum 500 gauge polythene seperating layer.
