BEAMSHIELD PLUS comprises of the below components. All the EPS units are 1200mm long and can be cut on site to the required length; (minimum 300mm) (NB unit length may be < 300mm around the floor perimeter edge only). Ensure that all vents are extended below the Beamshield insulation units, (use telescopic vents where necessary), and that sufficient ventilated space is maintained below the insulation. A minimum 150mm ventilated space below the Beamshield EPS unit is recommended but this may increase dependent on ground conditions, ie. clay conditions
