How to insulate and insulate the floor on the ground

It happens that it is necessary to isolate floors in basement rooms or on the first floors of private houses. Most often, such floors are actually the soil on which the house is. And the issue of insulation and insulation of such a floor is very important for the normal prolonged use of the building.
How to insulate and insulate the floor on the ground
According to the National Encyclopedia of Construct, the domestic company Elit-Plast, a manufacturer of penopolystyrene Penoboard (Penobord), has developed its own system of insulation and insulation of floors on the soil – PB-FLOORLITE.

When choosing plates for extruded polystyrene Penoboard for thermal insulation of floors, it is necessary to take into account the intensity of the load on the floor structure. The compression force of a certain type of plate can not exceed the rate calculated for it.

Thus, the floors of the first floors and basement rooms carry more serious load and require increased attention. What you will not say about the floors between the floors. The layer of insulation with a thickness of 14 cm will provide a heat transfer coefficient equal to 0.22 V (m2 · K).

To prevent the appearance of cold bridges in the foundation area, the panels of the extruded polystyrene Penoboard are laid directly under the reinforced concrete slabs of the supports and connected to the thermal insulation throughout the perimeter of the foundation walls.

If you have to insulate and insulate the floors of various hangars, warehouses, exhibition pavilions, etc. – the picture is slightly different.

In an intensive movement of special equipment, the insulation layer is also subject to increased pressure. In such structures, special attention is paid to the physical and mechanical parameters of insulating materials. For floors with high load, with 10% linear deformation, we use Penoboard, with a compressive strength of 250 to 500 kPa.
