STRUCTAflor® R-flor® is particleboard flooring that has been laminated with a metalized foil layer on the underside of the board, reducing the radiative heat transfer across suspended timber floors, improving thermal performance and Total R-Value of the flooring system.
R-flor reduces heat loss from the room to the outside making it more comfortable inside when it’s cold outside.
Produced to meet Australian/New Zealand Standard AS/NZS1860.1 Particleboard Flooring Part 1: Specifications and independently tested and accredited by The Engineered Wood Products Association of Australasia (EWPAA).
R-flor radiant barrier flooring is a particleboard flooring that has been laminated with a metalized foil layers on the underside of the board. It has a low emittance (high reflectance) metallised foil layer which significantly reduces the radiative heat transfer across a suspended timber floor and subfloor air space to deliver an improvement in the "Total R-Value" of the flooring system.
R-flor incorporates a termiticide for added protection against termites and is easily identified by its blue edge coat.
R-flor incorporates a factory fitted protective blue surface film to provide additional protection against surface moisture ingress during periods of exposure to weather. The protective film is designed to be peeled away prior to surface finishing. Taping of joins between sheets with an all-weather “duct” tape is recommended to provide additional protection against moisture ingress at joins to reduce edge swelling of the flooring sheet.
Any ponded water should be removed as soon as practicable.
Please refer to the STRUCTAflor® Installation and Design Manual (note Energy Efficiency section pages 14 - 16).
STRUCTAflor® R-flor® may be exposed to the weather for up to three months, however it is always advisable to enclose the building as soon as possible after laying the floor. Any ponded water should be removed as soon as practicable.
When storing outside ensure packs are kept clear of the ground. Cover with waterproof sheeting laid on timber battens so that air circulates freely between the waterproof cover and the product. Handle and stack with care to avoid damage.
Gloves, dust masks and glasses should be worn at all times when working with timber. Please refer to Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) for full details.
Off-cuts can be disposed of as normal landfill waste. Do not burn treated timbers. Please refer to above Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) for full details below.
