Info & curiosity

slide 1
Particularly suitable for laying under the finishing screed of the flooring (double-layer solution), it requires the creation of a finishing screed with a minimum thickness of 4.5 cm (for UnderSpecial 8 mm) or at least 7 cm (for UnderSpecial 13 mm).
slide 2
One of the historical products of Isolmant's under-screed range, in 2017 on the occasion of the 20 years of presence on the building market, the celebratory version "Isolmant UnderSpecial 20 Anniversary" was created, which lasted a few months and immediately became iconic.
slide 3
Isolmant UnderSpecial, the first coupled product of the Isolmant range, made the history of under-screed acoustic insulation, ending up in the homes of many Italians. But that's not all: it is one of the Isolmant products with the largest foreign market.

Installation information

1/2 - Installation of Isolmant UnderSpecial

Before installing the underlay, a levelling screed must be laid using suitable materials and recipes to ensure adequate mechanical support and a plain and uneven surface.

 

Then the sheets of Isolmant Underspecial can be laid, which must be carefully joined using the special overlapping fabric and sealed with Isolmant Nastro Telato or Isolmant Fascia Nastro. It is also necessary to be careful to start flush with the wall with the polyethylene, avoiding leaving strips of fibre only visible near the walls: the fibre, in fact, absorbs the cement and stiffens, generating a dangerous and continuous acoustic bridge. It is therefore necessary to trim only the fibre flush with the wall in order to guarantee the presence of both layers of product over the entire surface of the floor.

1/2 - Installation of Isolmant UnderSpecial
Product with overlaps for easy installation.

2/2 - Installation of Fascia Perimetrale:

To avoid acoustic bridges, the use of Isolmant Fascia Perimetrale is recommended, to be laid along the entire perimeter of the room without interruption. The height of Isolmant Fascia Perimetrale must be chosen by the designer/ contractor, taking into account the actual height at each site, in order to guarantee that the band is about 2/3 cm higher than the flooring level.

 

This excess must be trimmed after laying the floor. The continuity of the installation must also be ensured along the thresholds of entrance doors and French windows, as well as in technical niches for housing the manifolds of the heating system, pillars, pilasters, doors and other wall movements.

2/2 - Installation of Fascia Perimetrale:
The excess of the flanking strip must be trimmed only after the flooring has been laid and grouted.
