How to Insulate Above a Timber Floor
This step by step guide will show you the easiest method to insulate above your timber floor using EcoTec Floor-Foam Insulation.
EcoTec Floor-Foam Insulation is a thin, flexible dense 4mm foam membrane with a true aluminium foil either side of the foam material.
FloorFoam is extremely simplistic to install. FloorFoam will help to retain heat, add a thermal barrier and also significantly reduce draught and moisture.

Roll out & Cut FloorFoam
Firstly, roll out EcoTec FloorFoam either horizontally or vertically on the timber floor. FloorFoam can then be cut to desired length. We recommend FloorFoam to be cut with a cutting knife or Multifoil Scissors (Available in Multifoil Fitting Kit)
Staple EcoTec FloorFoam on your timber floor at around 300mm intervals. Ensure FloorFoam Insulation is butt jointed together on both horizontal and vertical sections.
Taping and Sealing
Fully tape and seal around the perimeter and butt joints using Thermaseal Foil Joining Tape (Provided free of charge in kit) Taping and sealing ensures no draught or moisture can rise up through the floor.
Install Desired Flooring
Once the timber floor is fully covered with FloorFoam Insulation, you can then proceed to install your desired flooring. If carpet is installed, the use of an underlay is advised prior to the carpet. Laminate or wood floors can be installed directly on top of FloorFoam. If a vinyl or lino is being used, we would advise the use of a plywood over the top of the FloorFoam.
