Most commonly required in basements and undercroft car parks where cold bridging is a problem. The most popular solution in modern construction is to install a laminated board to the underside of the slab to provide the insulation required. Products available include mineral wool/fibre slabs and Phenolic/PIR Foams. They are all available in different finishes ranging from foil facings to decorative rigid facing boards where aesthetics are an issue.
