Industrial and Heavy Duty Screed - A screed designed for heavy traffic and high load areas where maximum durability and strength is vital.


To enable the screeding to be of a high quality finish which is hard wearing and durable, time must be spent on preparing the area before any screed is laid. It's important that any contaminants such as debris, oil, paint or grease is removed from the floor surface before pouring any screed, because these can affect the adhesion capability that a quality screed needs.

If cleansing products have been used it's important to remove any residues of soap, detergent etc, and allow the surface to dry naturally. If screeding over a cement or stone floor any cracks should be mended to prevent them from "travelling" through a screed layer and causing deviations on the finished floor surface. During a site survey your Cainscross screeding specialist will ascertain what preparations are necessary before starting to work on the actual screeding.

Before the screeding can be poured a damp proof membrane (DPM) must be put down to shield the final flooring and screed from dampness. The DPM is made out of thick polythene sheeting and different layers may be used to serve as a moisture barrier and air insulating layer for the screeding.

If the area where you live is susceptible to radon then another barrier is needed to prevent this harmful gas from entering via the ground. An airtight membrane could be sufficient in areas with relatively low radon emissions, however in more serious cases there might need to be a more complex extraction and ventilation system to block any harmful radon gas.

The final stage of the surface preparation process is the painting or spraying of a primer or sealer. Primers and sealers help the bonding process and are special applications according to the type of screed being used. On account of their special nature, only qualified screeding contractors in Cainscross are capable of using them correctly, safely and using equipment which is made for the task.

Under floor heating can now be laid out, installed and tested before screeding is poured. The under floor heating system is laid out in the correct pattern and secured firmly to insulation panels to prevent any movement in the course of the screed pouring. Under floor heating is one of the most efficient ways to heat a room and a skillfully installed system will give an even warmth across the floor area.

If you aren't fitting underfloor heating the screed will now be mixed and prepared in situ and poured. Your proposed use of the room will assist the screeding specialist on what form of floor screed is ideal for your needs. Don't forget that even advanced and quick drying screeds have a minimum of 24 hours before you can walk on any screeded surface and at least 72 hours before any flooring materials can be laid. If you're using standard or heavy duty screeds the curing time is increased and you must observe the manufacturer's guidelines in order to get the best possible finish for your floor.

You can assess the SR standard of the finished screed once it's set enough to walk on. Through the use of a 2 mtr straight-edge the surface is checked for any deviations, ridges and dips in the screed surface.

  • SR1 - SR1 is the highest quality and permits just three millimetres of deviation from the straight-edge.
  • SR2 - The standard flooring in commercial and industrial builds is classed as SR2 and has a maximum deviation of 5mm across the whole screeded surface.
  • SR3 - SR3 is basic utility standard where a perfect finish isn't necessary. This classification allows for a maximium deviation of 10 millimetres.

If you need load bearing checks, a qualified structural engineer is necessary to conduct the tests. The assessment will make sure that your newly laid screed surface is suitable for the load bearing requirements set down in the original site survey. A "drop hammer test" is conducted at various areas on the screed layer and the results recorded. The precise testing and measurement tools involved mean that this can only be carried out by a fully qualified structural engineer following the guidelines of the British Standards BS8204.
