In the construction industry, time is money. To maximise the profitability and to remain within your budget it is vital to stay on top of time consuming tasks. The laying of screed has traditionally been a long term endeavour, tying up construction until the surface is suitable for load bearing. With new formulations of fast drying screed and the expertise of Flow Screed Services, we can dramatically reduce the drying time and as such reduce labour costs of your project.

The recommend British Standard 8203 screed drying time; 1 day per 1mm of thickness up to a maximum of 40mm of thickness, and an additional day for every additional 0.5mm of thickness. However, our fast drying screed is specially formulated for quicker results, minimising disruption to your construction schedule. The surfaces of our floor screed can be walked on or bare light loads within 24-48 hours. This allows construction to continue much more quickly than with traditional screeds or floor finishes, reducing labour costs and keeping your project within budget. Depending on your needs and budget we can advise on the estimated drying time to ensure we deliver the solution that is right for your needs.

In commercial settings, a minimum thickness of 40mm of screed is recommended. For domestic applications a minimum thickness of no less than 35mm should be applied. The surface finish of gyvlon bonded self-levelling concrete is self levelling, and will meet the surface regulation classification 2 for normal standard accuracy floors. For further levelling we offer a range of levelling compound solutions. More information can be found on our self levelling compound page.

Our self-levelling screed is designed to provide a smooth, fast drying level surface in both commercial and domestic buildings prior to the application of floor finishes. It can be used bonded, unbonded or floating and with or without underfloor heating system. Our team are also able to design, supply and install all types of underfloor heating systems, ideal for use with our floor screed.
