The Ekösteps® insulating tile has been designed to help reduce the loss of heat through the cold floors of basements, as well as for the soundproofing of upper floors.
WHAT IS EKOSTEPS®?
An expanded polystyrene tilespecially designed toprevent ambient heat loss
Made of 96 % of air, the Ekösteps® is an isolating shield between the room and its floor
This HD (high density) EPS tile is easy to install between the cold concrete slab of a basement and the flooring, such as laminate or ceramic tiles. In addition of having an energy gain (20 % to 35 %), it also provides superior comfort, keeping the floor warmer by up to 14 °F (7 °C)! Covering a cold concrete slab with Ekösteps considerably reduces the cost of heating. You save money and help reduce the environmental impacts.
Reduces heating fees by controlling heat loss
Improves comfort of cold floors by insulating them from subfloor
Reduces reverberation of impact noise
The Ekösteps high density insulating tiles provide a thermal resistance of R-3.25 for a thickness of ¾ of an inch. Thanks to its high density, it can easily support heavy loads such as a pool table on a 6 mm-thick laminate floor.
Easy to handle: 24” x 24” x ¾” tile dimension
Easy assembly: dovetail interlocking (no glue or tools required)
Easy to cut: cutting guides at every inch
Resilient : High Density EPS (2.75 lb/ft³)
Fire resistant : self-extinguishing material
Hydrophobic : water resistant
Safe : drainage ribs under the tile in case of water infiltration
Hygienic : does not promote the growth of mould
