Thermalboard Compared to Gypsum Concrete Pour

Pourable gypsum based cementitious material can be applied over tubing radiant stapled to a subfloor by licensed applicators.

Thermalboard Installation

In contrast, Thermalboard is easy to install, cost effective, and suitable for all flooring goods.

Gypsum Pours are Costly, Heavy, and Difficult to Install

 

  • Complicated Installation: Gypsum applicators do not provide project design layout. Thermalboard does.
  • Expensive Freight: Gypsum applicators use the same big trucks required for large commercial jobs, resulting in higher costs for small to medium projects.
  • Not Suitable for Hardwood: A Gypsum pour surface cannot cost-effectively accommodate nailed hardwood. Thermalboard accommodates all floors goods easily.
  • Heavy: A gypsum pour weights 12-14 lbs./sq./ft. often affecting joist sizing
  • Double Plating Required: An extra plate must be installed to accommodate the extra 1.5” of gypsum thickness. Cost issue. Possible height issue. Not required with Thermalboard.

Thermalboard has a Faster Response Time

Thermalboard responds much faster than the high mass gypsum pours. Thermalboard provides heat when you want it.
