WarmFloor Pro is ideal for both residential and commercial structural floor construction

Building regulation changes in June 2022 mean that the current U-Value of ground floors for new-builds will lower from 0.25W/m²K to 0.18W/m²K.

In 2018, Milbank Concrete Products developed WarmFloor Pro, the insulated beam and block alternative that works as an effective ground floor solution to reduce heating costs and improve thermal performance. This system falls well within this new specification and can be part of a more sustainable build for the lifetime of your development.

Reduce your carbon footprint with WarmFloor Pro

Reduced construction costs, increased energy savings and speed and ease of installation make WarmFloor Pro a compelling alternative to a standard beam and block floor. A+ green guide-rated and fully certified, it is proven to be a must-have addition to any new, sustainable development, where keeping heating costs low is paramount.

WarmFloor Pro has already been successfully installed in thousands of new-build projects across the country, and we are well experienced in both supply only and Supply and fix requirements.

On average, panels weigh less than 2kg a piece

By replacing standard concrete infill blocks with a combination of rigid insulation modules (EPS panels) manufactured from lightweight closed cell expanded polystyrene, along with an EPS top sheet, damp proof membrane and structural concrete topping, we are able to achieve U-values as low as 0.07W/m²K.

We manufacture the concrete components and supply all the required materials (including the EPS panels) directly to site, removing the need to deal with multiple suppliers. Opting for WarmFloor Pro as opposed to a traditional beam and block floor can provide a comparable total cost for an insulated floor and is considerably easier, quicker and more economical to install.

EPS blocks can be cut and shaped by hand with ease

[Lunara]’s unique surface texture, covered with tiny, silken, irregular elevations and depressions, is reminiscent of the cratered landscape of the Moon. Its random-looking and non-repeating surface is due to a new production process and no two panels are exactly the same. Similar to the rest of the EQUITONE range, [lunara] ...
