Gyvlon Screed

Case studies

Gyvlon® Screed products have many benefits to the specifier and client and are often chosen for varied reasons, perhaps the main contractor requires a reduction in program so Gyvlon is chosen as it is 10 times faster to install or an Eco Village requires a low carbon high recycled content screed to compliment their underfloor heating. Below are just some of the projects we are proud to have been involved and associated with.

Thermio & XTR - Private Residential (Newington Causeway) CS001

 

Type of Project:

Private Residential Development 47 floor high rise

Project name: 251 Newington Causeway
Date: 16th March 2018
Location: Elephant and Castle, London
Applied m2: 35,000 m2
Technology applied: Thermio / XTR
Substrate: 50mm thick floating floor on insulation
Screed supplier: Tarmac Silvertown
Screedlayer: TCS Screeding
Other: 47 floors. Thermio to go 30 floors up

The challenge

To pump Thermio over 20 floors.  TCS took the challenge on and proved successful.

The solution

Gyvlon Thermio+ liquid screed was chosen as the screed depth is thinner than the original specification, giving better insulation depth and a better performance for the UFH with Thermio’s guaranteed Thermal Performance.

Results

The tripods were set at 2m spacing, ensuring an SR2 finish was achieved with minimum effort.

TCS managed to keep the cost down as there was no need for an additional pump and it was installed faster.

XTR - Refurbishment (Derby Civic Centre) CS005

 

Type of Project:

Refurbishment

Project name: Derby Civic Centre
Location: Clarke Street, Derby
Applied m2: 11,000 m2
Technology applied: XTR

The challenge

Refurbishment of a historic building to form an office complex for Derby City Council. The existing floor was in poor repair and degraded and the architects had restrictions on floor build up.

With time being of the essence the main contractor needed a material which could be installed quickly and safely.

The solution

Gyvlon XTR was chosen for its increased strength, due to the commercial applications (C35/F7).  XTR can be laid at 40mm reducing the floor section compared to sand cement screed.

Results

40mm XTR Gyvlon screed resolved all the issues and 11,000m2 was successfully installed to the delight of the main contractor.
