TRADITIONAL SCREEDS

Standard cement / sand screeds are a layer of material laid in situ and consist of bonded, unbonded, floating and heated construction. The screeding system is used for obtaining a defined level to receive final floor coverings such as ceramics, stone, carpet, linoleum, wood flooring, etc

How quickly do you need to use your floor once the floor screeding has been completed? Most standard screeds (based on a typical 75mm depth) can take as long as 110 days to dry – far too long for most homeowners looking to complete their home improvement projects without too much delay.

But you don’t have to wait ages. You see, we use accelerated floor screeds, which dramatically reduces the time it takes for your floor screeding to be dry enough for the installation of floor finishes such as tiles, carpets or wooden flooring in as little as 24 hours.

CSC have reached a high industry standard by fully understanding the science behind the installation and have worked very closely with our supply chain to ensure that only the best quality materials are used on all our sites across the UK, Channel Islands and Ireland.  We have gained a huge acknowledgement from our clients and continue to share our knowledge with Architects, Specifiers, Contractors and Designers to satisfy the demands from their clients.

Ardex A35

Ardex A35

Ardex A 35 is a special formulated cement for producing a rapid setting and drying floor screed. The mortar is mixed and applied in exactly the same way as normal cement/sand mortar and has a working time of approximately 60 minutes at 20°C. An Ardurapid 35 cement and sand floor screed can be walked on 3 hours after application and is dry enough to receive floor coverings after 24 hours at 20°C.

A35 is suitable for bonded, unbonded, floating and heated constructions and therefore suitable for most applications. Due to the extremely fast setting times, great care must be taken in setting out the screed to ensure there are no dry joints. A35 can achieve much greater compressive strengths over standard screed mixes and can be tested with a BRE screed tester in only 6 hours. Additional levelling compounds such as A55 Ultra Rapid Drying Self – Levelling Compound can be applied in as little as 4 hours.
