Impact Plus Thermal Insulation

Designed for use directly under wood, laminate and carpet-type floors. The insulation is 6mm in depth and comes as 1m wide sheets x the length required. Steps are listed here to help guide you through the installation process. Please note that tile and stone floorings are not suitable for this insulation. Tile and stone floors are your final floor covering? Then XPS hard insulation boards or tile backer boards should be used.
1: The sub-floor, concrete or wood should be suitable for the chosen floor covering before any insulation is laid. The sheets, are designed to provide increased insulation levels, not structural rigidity or floor levelling. 2: Make sure the floor is clean, dust and debris free. Start by using double-sided tape or spray contact adhesive. Sufficiently cover the floor area with spray adhesive where the insulation will be. Full coverage of the floor is not necessary! You only require enough spray adhesive to hold the insulation in place while the floor covering is fitted. (In small areas the insulation can simply be laid loose over the floor). Double-sided tape or spray contact adhesive, can be used under insulation or single-sided tape used over the insulation if needed to hold it in place.
4: Working in manageable-sized areas, lay the insulation over the floor area. Each run should be butted together and cut neatly around the edge of the room to achieve a full floor coverage. 5: The insulation can be cut to size. Easily done with a sharp Stanley knife or scissors. 6: Once the insulation is down, the floor should be kept clean and tidy. Make sure the insulation is not damaged or debris trodden into the surface. This could affect or damage any subsequent layers fitted over the insulation. 7: Carpet Flooring: Depending upon what type of gripper rod is being used, it can be advantageous to install a 50mm strip of 6mm MDF or similar board around the perimeter of the room before fitting the insulation. The insulation can then be fitted into the well created to leave a level floor. This allows the gripper rod to be fitted onto the 6mm perimeter boarding, which will help the carpet fitter easily hook the carpet over the gripper rods.
