Profi-panel batten floors are the perfect system for installation into refurbishment projects with wood flooring



Applications:

Profi-Batten floors have traditionally been the preferred method of installation for real or engineered floor boards on to existing floors. The batten itself provides the perfect fixing point for the secret nail method of installation.


The Profi-Batten system can be installed over the top of any existing floor providing there is sufficient headroom left above the finish floor level. To ensure the best use of the available height the batten thickness can be adjusted to suit the build up height required.



Build up heights:



Profi-Batten floors are installed on to a batten of the specific depth to suit the installation. This underfloor panel system is available 25mm to 100mm thick.

A structural floor must be installed on top of the battens once the insulation and underfloor heating has been installed, making it ideal for real wood flooring.

 


Insulation:


The Profi-Panels must be laid either on top of additional insulation or directly onto the existing floor


Installation:


If it is an existing floor then particular care must taken to ensure that the floor is flat and clear from dirt and debris.  After the pipe has been installed a foil tape needs to laid along the main runs of pipe to help transfer the heat to the floor. After this has been done a polythene vapour barrier must be laid across the entire floor and then the floor deck can be laid.
