Blaze Construction is the contractor for all the ground works on a large residential site around the Newbury Racecourse. Jablite started supplying its Structural Board Thermal Floor System to Blaze in September 2019 at the start of Phase 4 of the site.
Nigel Hull, Site Foreman, Blaze Construction, is keen to praise Jablite’s floor system and high standard of service, “The system is very easy to handle and install, I prefer it to a competitor’s system we installed earlier.
“We get the beams and the EPS (expanded polystyrene) panels all delivered on the same day and will typically easily get four or five plots done in a week. We use steel mesh A142 and a structural concrete topping. The steel mesh helps to hold the panels in place while we wait for the concrete delivery – although the floor is always a good tight fit and is unlikely to blow away. But as we are right next to a race course we have to be sure!
“I order the product from site and it goes across to our buyer in the office who makes the order with Jablite. The great thing is if I have a problem, I only have to call Jablite it will be sorted out straightaway.”
This BBA-certified (14/5094 Product Sheet 4) thermal floor system consists of pre-stressed concrete beams positioned to meet the designed load requirement combined with Jablite infill insulation panels and Jablite structural boards.
Designed to meet your specified U-Value requirements.
The Jablite Structural Board Thermal Floor System is completed by the installation of a minimum of 75mm structural concrete topping.
