Thermohouse Floor Insulation Panel for Underfloor Heating – ThermoBoard
Satisfying Your Needs – Warm floors
Imagine coming in the front door, kicking off your shoes, or, stepping out of the shower and having that lovely warm feeling under your feet. We all want the best for our homes, we want style, comfort and modern amenities. Unfortunately, a lot of us have to concede on one or more of these requirements. House design can often become a ‘must have’ over a ‘like to have’ activity. How about if you could have it all? At Thermohouse, we have designed a floor panel which is cost effective, high performing and quick to install. It completely simplifies the addition of underfloor heating in your home.

ThermoBoard is an under-floor heating panel which can form part of the Thermohouse building system. It is a high-density, insulation board manufactured from expanded polystyrene (EPS).
