How To Insulate Under Carpets Laminate or Vinyl using EcoTec Floor-Foam
Roll out EcoTec Floor-Foam
Starting at one end of the room, roll out the Ecotec FloorFoam to the desired length. We recommend starting in one corner.
Cutting the Insulation
When you have reached the desired length, simply cut the EcoTec Floor Foam, with a sharp Knife / Scissors. You can also make a slit in the material for radiator pipes too.
Fix the EcoTec Floor-Foam
Then either Staple / Glue / Use Double Sided Tape, to fix the EcoTec Floor-Foam into place. You can also trim any edges as this point to ensure the floor foam is sat comfortably. If using a Glue we recommend to use a Non-Solvent adhesive, as solvents may effect the Foils.
Proceed with the Next Layer
Install the next run of EcoTec Floor-Foam and butt the edges. Do not overlap as this will make the floor uneven in places.
Tape and Seal Insulation
When the whole floor has been covered with the EcoTec Floor-Foam we recommend to tape and seal the butt joints and across the whole perimeter to ensure a complete seal. This will prevent moisture from rising and also prevent drafts.
Fix grippers in to place, over the EcoTec Floor-Foam. This will not impact the performance of the productl. Proceed to install your carpet underlay and cut in to place directly on top of the Floor Foam.
How to Insulate a Concrete Floor
Rolling out FloorFoam
Start by rolling out FloorFoam Insulation either vertically or horizontally on the concrete floor. EcoTec FloorFoam can then easily be cut by using Multifoil Scissors or a Cutting Knife - Both available in our Fitting Kit.
Fixing Down FloorFoam
FloorFoam is fixed onto concrete floors by using Thermaseal Double Sided Tape, or Non-Solvent Glue. Ensure FloorFoam Insulation is fully taped and sealed on butt joints on the floor. Also tape FloorFoam around the perimeter.(Thermaseal Foil Tape is provided free of charge in kit). Taping and sealing ensures no draught or moisture can rise up through the floor.
Install Preferred Final Flooring
Once your concrete floor has been covered with FloorFoam, next you can install your desired flooring. Wood & laminate flooring can be installed directly on top of FloorFoam. We recommend to use a carpet underlay prior to a carpet being installed. If a vinyl or lino is being used, we would advise the use of a plywood over the top of the FloorFoam.
How to Insulate Above a Timber Floor
Roll out the EcoTec Floor Foam
Roll the EcoTec Floor Foam out on to your timber floor. This can be rolled either vertically or horizontally, whatever your preference is!
Cut the EcoTec Floor Foam
You can then cut the EcoTec Floor Foam, when you arrive at the end of your run. You can either with our Multifoil Scissors or a Cutting Knife (both of these products are included in our Multifoil Fitting Kit). Keep insulating in strips until the full floor area you wish to insulate is covered. You can also make little cuts where the radiator pipes etc. are if required - just try and ensure you have a continous layer where possible.
Staple the EcoTec Floor Foam
Once cut to size, you can then Staple EcoTec FloorFoam on your timber floor, we advising leaving around a 30cm gap between each staple to ensure the material is secure.
Tape with the Thermaseal Foil Joining Tape
Ensure FloorFoam Insulation is butt jointed together by this we mean, so not overlap so you have a double layer at any point. Then, use the Thermaseal Foil Joining Tape, that is provided alongside the EcoTec Floor Foam, to seal all around the edges (peremiter) and the joints. The Thermaseal Foil Joining Tape used to do this is provided within the kit. Taping and sealing ensures no draught or moisture can rise up through the floor.
Install Desired Flooring
Finally, once installed and fully taped and sealed and secure - you can now proceed to install your desired flooring. If carpet is installed, the use of an underlay is advised prior to the carpet. Laminate or wood floors can be installed directly on top of FloorFoam. If a vinyl or lino is being used, we would advise the use of a plywood over the top of the FloorFoam.

Do I need to use underlay if I’m installing carpet over the top?
Yes, you definitely need to install underlay on top of the floor foam if you’re installing carpet. Floor-foam isn’t a replacement for underlay.
Can I use floor-foam in the bathroom and kitchen?
As long as the floor-foam is correctly sealed and protective flooring is laid on top you won’t have any issues with it getting mouldy, damp, or reacting with water.
How do I attach the floor-foam to concrete floors?
We sell Thermaseal double-sided tape that is perfect for this, or you can use a non-solvent adhesive.
Do I need to tape and seal the insulation?
Yes, you do need to tape and seal the FloorFoam otherwise draughts would still come up through the gaps in the insulation. Which would prevent the insulation from working at its best.
How much flooring will the EcoTec Floor-Foam Insulation Kit cover?
One kit will cover 30 square meters.
Will I need to buy an extra ThermaSeal Foil Joining Tape?
No, you shouldn’t need any extra tape one roll will cover 50m, if you do make any mistakes there is extra for you to use.
Do I need any extra protection between the insulation and the flooring I’m laying over the top?
We do recommend laying a thin layer of plywood over the floor-foam if you’re installing tile, vinyl, carpet tiles, or LVT flooring. This will give the flooring a completely solid surface to lay on. You don’t need to do this with carpet or laminate.
Can I use vinyl over FloorFoam?
Yes, however we would recommend installing a thin plywood over the FloorFoam before installing a vinyl.
What is the best way to cut FloorFoam?
We would recommend cutting FloorFoam with either Multifoil Scissors or a Cutting Knife. Both are available in our Multifoil Fitting Kit.
Is there discount on larger quantities?
We offer EcoTec FloorFoam Trade Pallet Deals, where you order 9 rolls per pallet and receive a discount on the rolls.
Can carpet grippers be nailed through FloorFoam?
Yes, you can nail carpet grippers through FloorFoam. You can alternatively use a non-solvent adhesive.
