Basement Floor Insulation
Newton Fibran XPS 500-C is a 50mm deep, closed-cell thermal insulation board that creates a supporting spacer below the floor drainage membrane. The basement floor insulation is made from rigid extruded polystyrene foam (XPS), which is extremely resistant to water absorption, meaning it can be permanently submerged in water.
The Newton Fibran XPS 500-C basement insulation boards are used to form a 50mm spacer adjacent to the Basedrain and Floordrain drainage channels within the Newton System 500 cavity drain waterproofing system. The insulation boards are rated at 500 kPa and feature specifically designed slots to the underside of the boards. In combination with the perimeter and spine drainage channels of Newton System 500, they form a fully drained supporting spacer below the floor drainage membrane.
The insulation boards can also be used as a protection for Newton System 200 liquid applied waterproofing membranes applied externally to new earth retained structures or retained walls, uniquely offering protection, insulation and drainage within one product.
This basement insulation product is manufactured in accordance with EN 13164 – “Thermal insulation products for buildings – Factory made products of extruded polystyrene (XPS)-specification.”
