Crack Resistant Traditional Screeds
The traditional sand and cement screed has been the most popular choice in the industry for over 50 years because it can be delivered to site ready mixed. Traditional screed is great for laying screeds where the floor has to slope down to a drainage point.
We offer a wide range of traditional screeding options to suit every requirement including:
- 1-4 sand and cement screed site mixed, pumped or drum mixer.
- 1-4, 3: sand and cement screed for a bonded floor. Ready-mixed fibre screed.
- 1-4, 3: sand and cement screed with polypropylene fibres for unbonded floors.
The positives of using traditional screed are: it is cost-effective, it has increased bonds for impact resistance, more reduced construction time and that rust and corrosion-resistant fibres and steel mesh can be added to reduce cracking.
After 7 days traditional screed will be able to take foot traffic. The drying time is the same as liquid screed, at 1mm a day up to 40mm and then 1/2mm a day at any thickness bigger than that.
With over 30 years experience in installing traditional screeds we are always on top of the market so are aware of many of the additives available on the market, meaning that we will be able to offer any alternatives which have been tried and tested dependent on your requirements.
