• Lightweight flooring to substitute conventional concrete slabs.

Kalsi is one of the toughest underflooring material.

KalsiFloor is a strong fibre cement panel suitable for internal flooring applications. can be directly finished (with carpet or vinyl tiles) in residential projects or offices, or with reinforced mortar screed in industrial and heavy duty applications.

KalsiFloor is a superb alternative to concrete slabs flooring because it is an incredible lightweight solution with excellent mechanical strength.

KalsiFloor being a dry construction system, is fast and clean to install; saving time and resources on concrete casting and curing.​

Recommended Application

  • Lightweight flooring renovation, mezzanines

  • Moist, mould and water resistant
  • Wide variety of thickness and applications
  • Impact resistant
  • Dimensionally stable
  • Easy to work and install
  • Non-combustible

Surface finishes

KalsiFloor is an ideal substrate for internal flooring finishes.
