Uncoupling matting for fast track tiling onto problematic floors
Rapid-Mat is an innovative fast-track uncoupling system to accommodate lateral movement for tile installations on floors with limited movement. Reducing adhesive consumption relative to other systems and with minimal mat compression, Rapid-Mat is lightweight and easy to install, with minimal height build-up with only 1mm thickness. Rapid-Mat is suitable for internal flooring, renovation and new construction, domestic and commercial areas in medium/heavy duty applications. It is particularly recommended for heated floors and timber floors.
Anyone specifiying tiling onto problematic floors should consider BAL Rapid-Mat. Designed for floors which may be subject to lateral movement stresses, it is ideal for use with underfloor heating, timber substrates and other challenging backgrounds. It delivers major cost benefits over cavity-based uncoupling mats through needing less adhesive and being much faster to install. Projects can be completed more quickly because contractors spend less time mixing adhesive, with fewer interruptions to tiling, and have no need to wait for adhesive to dry.
- protecting floor tiling against cracks, fractures and other damage caused by stresses and lateral movement in the substrate
- suitable for most problematic floor substrates including timber floors, new screeds and floors with under-tile heating systems
- suitable for most tile types including mosaics
MAY BE TILED: immediately with a rapid-setting adhesive.
