Easy and quick to install, Knauf Brio Dry Floor Screed Board is a superb substrate for perfect floors in new build and refurbishment projects that not only cuts construction times but also boosts both thermal and acoustic performance – and scores points on the sustainability front too.
Brio is an engineered gypsum flooring panel that has a very high thermal conductivity (R = 0.38 W/mK) so heating response times are quicker and energy use is reduced. When used in place of chipboard, Brio is proven to increase underfloor heating system efficiency by between 36% and 43%.
Brio also helps buildings score well on BREEAM because of its high acoustic performance, low water content and because it facilitates the use of renewable energy sources such as ground and air source heat pumps by allowing underfloor heating systems to run cooler for the same output.
Brio’s largely recycled content of recovered gypsum and fibre, and its clean manufacturing process; means is it ideal for low-carbon buildings and reducing the carbon footprint in refurbishment projects. In use, Brio continues to reduce CO2 emissions throughout the life of the building.
Any competent tradesperson can install Brio Dry Floor Screed – no specialist trades are required because the boards are manufactured with precision, so that boards fit together smoothly and quickly. The result is that drying times on site are eliminated, as is the additional moisture in the building fabric that comes with wet screeds and there are none of the trip hazards associated with bulky batten and chipboard systems. Panel joints are simply glued together and fastened with Knauf Brio Screws, designed to stop exactly 1mm short of the bottom of the precision-engineered panel, producing a solid, level floor that is ready for a wide variety of finishes – and traffic – within hours.
The panel is also ideal for refurbishments because of its low installation thickness of just 23mm, which allows for the installation of an underfloor heating system for a total loss in room height of just 50mm. Knauf Brio is also much lighter than traditional wet screeds, significantly reducing loads and costly structural requirements in multi-storey buildings.
Knauf Brio screws and adhesive are also available for joining Brio screed boards.
Please Note: Knauf Brio screed boards are not suitable to be laid directly onto timber joist floors.
