Minimum 50mm thick kingspan insulation board is usually the norm but check with builing control it may vary from one local authority to another

I recall 100mm being mentioned, whether they were talking about kingspan or another insulation board i do not know.
I could get away with 50mm kingspan :-) but 100mm would give me a higher step that is not really suitable and i dont want to start digging up the concrete floor.
