WHAT IS FLOW SCREED?
Flow screed, also known as liquid screed or anhydrite screed, is made using a by-product of Gypsum. It creates a solid, smooth and even sub-floor. The flow screed is pumped onto the surface and is then laser-levelled for a more accurate finish.
Working from an agreed datum point supplied by the Contractor, all areas requiring screed are assessed using laser levels. Tripods are adjusted to ensure the correct level is achieved and then positioned in each area. The screed is pumped as a free flowing consistency making it quick and easy to lay. This allows the Contractor to save time creating better opportunity to manage other trades onsite.
Flowing screed dries rapidly in the right conditions and can be laid more thinly than traditional materials, making it a quicker and cheaper choice. Just 35mm of flowing screed will replace 75mm of conventional materials – the time and material costs saved can be significant for larger projects.
However, there’s no compromise on finish. In fact, flowing screed produces a stronger and more tolerant result than traditional screed, increasing the longevity of your floor.
