Screed floor construction 2
+9.5 cm - ground floor, cellar, etc. - with concrete slab, insulating screed as substrate - tiles, multilayered parquet, laminate, cork, carpet, vinyl and cast floor
Why the Staenis grid?
Tensions in the substrate are the biggest cause of damage to the tile work. With the Staenis grid, the screed is completely tension-free, so that the tiles and grouting remain in top condition.
- Achieving a perfect end result without any experience
- Compartment of the screed = crack-free screed
- Replaces an uncoupling mat = savings of an average of 30 euros/m²
- Replaces the steel reinforcement net = savings of an average of 3 euros/m²
- No expansion joints needed in the screed = savings of an average of 3 euros/LM
- Spread screed work over several days (no stress during installation)
- Much faster start-up of underfloor heating possible = faster construction process
- No 'dishing/cupping' of the screed = perfectly flat screed
Floor construction manual
- Pour the insulation screed and make sure that the insulation screed layer is flat (max. 2 cm difference in height), so that installation with the Staenis grid is possible. Then cover it with a plastic layer.
- Place the Staenis grid and adjust it to the correct height with a screwdriver. As standard, screed is poured 8 cm high/thick.
- Fill in the Staenis grid properly with screed and flatten it on the top of the Staenis grid. Sprinkle some screed on the surface and polish with a large sanding board. This ensures that the remaining holes are filled and a good bonding strength to the tile is guaranteed. Always place an expansion strip or edge insulation along the walls.
