Ordering our high quality, high density or extra-high density, PolyFloor - Concrete Floor / Surface Bed Insulation Boards nationally online is really easy and only takes a few minutes.
Each board is 3m2 so you will need to divide your total underfloor insulation requirement in, m2, by three to get the number of boards required. Order a few extra just in case.
The thicker the boards, the more insulation you get, invest well and choose your thickness wisely.
This is not a retrofit product. You only have one chance to install this product and that is before you cast your concrete slab!
See more about thermal insulation values below.
Ordering online is really simple You can either choose direct delivery to your location / site or to collect your order, after it is cut, directly from our distribution centers in:
Please note that all our online prices Exclude VAT.
Anybody can order our polystyrene nationally online and we have no minimum order quantity.
Our distribution centers are not walk-in shops. We cut and deliver polystyrene from these facilities and you can collect your order from them.
General order lead time is 3 to 7 working days for cutting & delivery, excluding weekends and public holidays. If you need product faster then please call us.

Collecting your polystyrene yourself is pretty easy.
There is a very good reason why builders, architects, developers and home-owners choose our PolyFoor Insulation Boards:
- You know that our boards will give you the required thermal insulation
- You also know that the density of our boards will give you the required compressive strength to stop the floor from failing under the slab weight.
- Our prices are very competitive
- Lead time is critical in concrete slab applications and we deliver!

PolyFloor - Surface Bed Insulation Boards For Floor Slabs
Luxury homes and buildings should all have insulated concrete floor slabs and if underfloor heating is going to be installed then it is a building requirement to insulate the concrete slab before you cast it!
Insulating your concrete floor slab, before you cast it, really does make a huge difference to the overall thermal insulation of your home or building year round!
There is nothing worse that getting out of bed on a cold winters morning and stepping directly onto a freezing cold floor. PolyFloor insulation boards stop the cold soil below your concrete slab from cooling the concrete floor slab itself.
If underfloor heating is going to be installed then PolyFloor Insulation is essential because there really no point in heating the concrete floor slab and the cold soil below the floor slab.
Our PolyFloor insulation boards ensure that only the concrete slab is being heated and when the slab is at the right temperature then the insulation boards keep the slab at that temperature which in turn reduces the amount of electricity that is required to maintain a constant floor temperature.
So not only do our PolyFloor insulation boards regulate room temperature year round but they also save you a ton of electricity heating costs during the year.
The cost of installing these boards, before you cast your floor slab, is so insignificant compared to the huge luxury and costs savings it provide to building owners in the long run.
Obviously the thicker the boards the more insulation you get so invest wisely and choose your thickness well.
Thermal Insulation R-Value Requirements:
To get the required thermal insulation R-Value of 1, in terms of South African Building Regulations, you need a minimum board thickness of 40mm but the thicker you go the more insulation you get.
We recommend 40mm or 50mm PolyFloor Insulation Boards In South Africa to meet the minimum thermal insulation requirement (R-Value of 1) in residential buildings but often clients choose to install thicker boards for more insulation.

|Board Thickness||Thermal Insulation (R-Value)|
||1.143 (Residential Insulation)|
|50mm||1.429 (Residential Insulation)|
|75mm||2.145 (Residential Insulation)|
|100mm||2.857 (Residential Insulation)|
|120mm||3.429 (Cold Room Insulation)|
|150mm||4.286 (Cold Room Insulation)|
|200mm||5.714 (Freezer Room Insulation)|
|300mm||8.571 (Freezer Room Insulation)|
PolyFloor Densities & Compressive Strength:
PolyFoor Insulation is only sold in High & Extra High Densities due to the loading and compressive strength requirements of the boards in this applications.
- In residential applications a high density board can be used.
- In commercial or Industrial applications and Extra High Density (24kg/m3 to 30kg/m3) must be used.
- Low and medium density polystyrene will fail in this application.
- Consult with your local engineer if you are uncertain.
|Density Name||Nominal Density||Compressive Strength|
|High Density||20 kg/m3||110 KPa @ 10% Compression|
|Extra High Density||24 kg/m3 to 30 kg/m3||160 to 200 kPa @ 10% Compression|

How To Install PolyFloor Insulation Boards
- First the brick foundation walls are built.
- The soil is then placed and compacted.
- A DPC plastic layer is them placed on the compacted soil.
- The polystyrene is then cut and laid tightly on top of the plastic layer.
- Steel mesh is then placed on top of the polystyrene insulation layer with spacers.
- The concrete is then poured on top of the polystyrene insulation layer.
