ThermoSafe 040

Wood-fibre insulation board with compressive strength suitable for flooring applications

ThermoSafe 040

ThermoSafe 040 boards are rigid insulating building boards. They are manufactured from by-products of the sawmills within the Black Forrest area of Germany. The softwood chippings are pulped, soaked in water, then mechanically pressed into boards, dried, and cut to shape. Boards thicker than 20mm are made up of 20mm thick laminations.

Suitable applications include floors (i.e below screed), walls (both internally & externally) and roofs.

Composition & Manufacture

  • Manufactured entirely from renewable resources
  • Manufactured entirely from by-products
  • No chemical additives
  • No toxins or toxic emissions during manufacture
  • CO2 zero-rated
  • Timber fuelled embodied energy
  • Actively recycled (i.e not theoretical)

Installation & Disposal

  • No known health risks for workforce or installers
  • Easily cut to shape and worked
  • No VOC emissions
  • Absorbs harmful VOC’s and toxins
  • Durable / Low maintenance
  • Reusable / Recyclable
  • Compostable

Performance

  • High compressive strength
  • Excellent thermal performance in Winter
  • Excellent thermal performance in Summer
  • Good acoustic performance
  • Vapour permeable
  • Hygroscopic (absorbs & releases moisture)
  • Helps regulate indoor climate
  • Vermin and fungus resistant
  • Electrically neutral
  • Non-radioactive
  • Free from toxins and allergens
  • Dimensionally stable (low thermal movement)
  • Low toxic fumes if burn

Applications

• Floors (i.e below screed)
• Walls (both internally & externally)
• Roofs

Cutting
Cut boards using a fine-toothed hand saw, Jig saw, or circular saw with integral dust extractor.

Installation

• Protect boards from moisture in the substrate / screed.
• Avoid cross joints when laying.
• Stagger joints when installing more than one layer.
• Install edge strip to the full height of the proposed floor make up.
