Liquid Screed

Liquid screed - for both domestic and commercial buildings

Liquid screed, also known as flowing screed, calcium sulphate screed or anhydrate screed, is the  modern alternative to conventional Sand and Cement screed. It is designed to provide a smooth level surface in both commercial and domestic buildings prior to application of floor finishes and is fast becoming the popular choice for use with underfloor heating.


There are many advantages of using Liquid Screed over conventional sand and cement screed.

Due to its greater strength it can be laid at a lesser thickness than Sand & Cement, which means less cover over pipe work, thus making your underfloor heating far more efficient and with twice the thermal conductivity of a sand & cement screed, it gives your heating a faster reaction time, saving you up to 10% on running costs.

Also when using Liquid Screed over underfloor heating that is powered by a ground or air source heat pump, the output temperature can be reduced due to the floors greater thermal properties, and so for every 1 degree a heat pump runs lower, a 3% efficiency will be gained , saving you money and reducing your carbon footprint!

This graph details the improvement in heating performance that can be achieved when using Liquid Screed over the conventional Sand Cement Screed.

It can cover large spaces in a short period of time and shallower floor depths can be achieved without a need for reinforcement

Environmental Benefits

with Liquid Screed

With the ever-growing concerns for our environment and the carbon footprints that are inevitably left behind, we are all feeling an increased pressure to reduce our carbon footprint.

As such, being green is fast becoming a key consideration for businesses and domestic consumers alike.

It is becoming more important that both consumers and businesses demonstrate their commitment to the environment and local authorities who are now clearly specifying that businesses and organisations should be more mindful of the impact of their developments on the environment and focus on reducing their carbon footprint.

With the ever-increasing costs of natural fuels, materials and transportation it is in the interest of EVERY business to embrace the benefits of Eco-Friendly Policies.
