Our Answer:

Per this unit's installation manual (which can be downloaded from this item's page on our site), this unit must be placed on a noncombustible floor protection equivalent to 3/8" millboard. Floor protector must have min. R value of .446. As such, if the Durock carries an R value of .369, doubling the layers should serve you well.
