XL- Floor Insulated Flooring system
XL-Floor is an insulated flooring system that combines both a floor substrate and embedded insulation to provide a lightweight multi-purpose substrate structural insulated floor. XL-Floor provides exceptional thermal and acoustic insulation ratings. Having an insulated barrier between floors ensures that the building will have less thermal variations than traditional floor systems. With XL-Floor the sound transmission is minimised between levels, with an enclosed system, inter-floor noise, and flanking noise is minimised giving you and those around you peace of mind.
XL-Floor Can be used in a range of applications:
Internal and External
Stump construction on steel or timber frame
Studios or granny flats
Transportable homes and offices

- Four Panel Configurations to reduce waste
- Can be joined off-joist
XL-Floor panels can be fixed in many configurations that would not previously be possible. The spline-based joints ensure the rigidity of the system even with off-joist jointing.
Off-joist panel jointing completely removes the requirement for cutting back flooring substrates to end-meet on a joist. This not only saves material and the environment, but also saves time and labour costs.
With four different panel configurations available, starting at the corner of a room. This construction methodology reduces installation time, and hence significantly reduces the total material and install cost per square metre.
The process of laminating the componentry together, combined with the proprietary, independently certified jointing systems means that XL-Floor can achieve improved performance benefits over other comparable products available.
XL-Floor standard panel size is 2400x1200mm and 75mm thick, weight 75kg per panel. For ease of installation, there are 4 different panel configurations to choose from, depending on the particulars of your job
XL-Floor is suitable for Class 1 – building construction.
XL-Floor is a light-weight flooring insulating system. Over the years there have been many systems designed to keep the substrate of a building from leaching cold through the floor.
These systems include
Electric Floor Heating
Whilst the costs associated with Electric are usually cheaper, the long term costs can escalate without realising it.
Hydronic Floor heating
Whilst the Running costs of a Hydronic system are usually lower, the installation costs can be quite significant
Why pay additional installation costs and on-going running costs when you can have one flooring system that gives you all these benefits and more?
XL-Floor is available in 2 thicknesses with different core combinations providing R ratings from R2.4 – R2.6. Higher ratings can be achieved if required.
