Types of floor constructions

The floor structure is an important part of construction or renovation projects and different types are possible, such as screed, insulation screed, dry fillers, drainage mortar and leveling compound. Each type of floor construction is specifically suitable for a specific room and offers various advantages, such as high load-bearing capacity, insulating properties, low height or a sustainable solution.

When choosing the right floor construction, it is important to consider whether the structure of the house is suitable, whether it will have underfloor heating and whether the floor will be placed on floors. Staenis offers floor construction solutions that are easy to install, stress-free and have unique advantages, such as a lighter version or an environmentally friendly dry floor.

- Choose a filler below: screed, (tilable) insulation screed, dry fillers, leveling compound or drainage mortar based on the space.

Screed as a finishing layer

"traditional screed, but 10x better reinforced"

Height from 1 cm

Cracks, sagging, loosening, etc... of the floor are eliminated by dividing the floor structure into very small fields of 0.25 m2. Due to the division, you no longer need expansion joints (with the exception of doorways) and an uncoupling mat. Tested by Ghent University, with control of Buildwise.

weight screed: ±100 kg/m²/7cm | very high carrying capacity | a room on the ground floor

Laying screed yourself Possible screed floor constructions

Insulation screed

Tileable insulation screed

"insulating and 10x lighter replacement for screed"

Height from 4.5 cm

This by applying insulating screed in the Staenis grid. The insulating screed can be tiled directly (tile version) or an OSB can be fixed to the grid.

weight insulation screed: ±12 kg/m²/7cm | high carrying capacity | ground floor, first floor or attic space

Laying insulation screed yourself Possible insulating screed floor constructions

Dry floor

Dry Fillers With Wood Finish

"10x environmentally friendly dry floor"

Height from 6.3 cm

This by applying dry fillers, as opposed to a traditional screed. The circular floor structure with Staenis grid is removable and can be reused without waste.

weight of leveling granules: ±35 kg/m²/7cm | low to medium carrying capacity | attic space

Lay your dry floor yourself Possible dry floors


Drainage mortar

"10x more durable and draining terrace"

Height from 4.5 cm

By combining the Staenis grid with a draining filler, you ensure that moisture and tension do not affect the lifespan of your new terrace and you go for a correct terrace construction.

weight of screed/drainage mortar: ±100 kg/m²/7cm | very high carrying capacity | terrace, driveway or garden house

Lay your terrace yourself Possible terrace floor constructions

Leveling compound

Leveling compound

"self-levelling, but 10x easier"

Height between 1 mm and 5 cm

With the Staenis leveling grid you can easily level and reinforce uneven surfaces.

weight leveling compound: ±14 kg/m²/1cm |level and on a slope | ground floor, first floor or attic space

Laying your leveling compound yourself Possible even floor constructions

Do you have construction or renovation plans and want to get started installing your floor structure yourself? Fantastic, we love that hands-on mentality!

Do you want to renovate the bathroom, or perhaps redecorate the attic space now that the children are getting older? Or maybe it's time for a new terrace?

Does the new floor need to be insulated or acoustically perfect? Is the structure of the house strong enough for a new floor construction? Will there be underfloor heating? Will the floor be placed on the first floor? And which floor finish do you choose?, etc.

As you can see, every floor structure has different properties and everyone has different requirements for their future floor. That is why we are happy to help you!
