What is it?
A heavy-duty but lightweight structural flooring substrate that does double duty – it can be easily used for tile, vinyl and carpet finishes over timber or steel floor joists in both residential general interiors and wet areas. Simple and fast to install, Scyon™ Secura™ interior flooring is the easiest way to get top protection against moisture damage in all interior floors.
Where do you use it?
As a substrate for direct fixing of tiles, vinyl and carpet in residential floors and wet areas, as an alternative to particle board, plywood or compressed fibre cement.
What are the key benefits?
Speed. Secura™ interior flooring is 15% lighter per square metre than conventional 15-mm compressed fibre cement, which makes it easier to handle. And because it’s made from Scyon™ material, which can be gun nailed and is easy to cut like timber, there’s no need for pre-drilling and screwing. All told it can be up to 40% faster to install than compressed.
No fuss. The 19-mm tongue and groove joining means it’s compatible with other 19-mm flooring products and eliminates the need for timber trimmers along the tongue and groove joint. The moisture-resistant sealer on all sides combined with the moisture-resistant properties of the Scyon™ material removes the need for full floor waterproofing outside enclosed shower areas. And unlike some timber products, tiles and vinyl can be directly fixed without the need for an underlay sheet.
Security. Secura™ interior flooring is resistant to damage from moisture, so if rain holds you up during construction and the roof’s not yet on, the product won’t need replacing or sanding because it’s warped and twisted, like some timber products. (Exposure to the elements should not be longer than three months.) This resistance to moisture damage also means that if there is a waterproofing failure some time in the future, then the Secura™ interior flooring will continue to perform, even if it gets wet. The strong, no-squeak feel of Secura™ interior flooring also gives a solid impression without the weight and cost of concrete. Secura™ interior flooring has a 10-year product warranty when installed and maintained correctly.
