THE LOW DEPTH SOLUTION FOR INSTALLATION OF A WATER SYSTEM ONTO AN EXISTING FLOOR
100mm Pipe Centres – The perfect pipe spacing for higher heat loss floor heating applications – Internal rooms insulated to below current building standards, or heavily glazed or with low temperature water supplies such as those from Heatpumps.
ThermRite™ Floating Floor System suitable for both domestic and commercial applications. Board thickness options from 30mm-80mm. Simply lay the panels onto your existing screed/floor boards, install the pipe and cover with a interlocking plywood or chipboard floor
1200 x 1200 x (30 – 80)mm Panel – 12 grooves at 100mm centres
Ideally suited to existing floors where screed is already laid and a low height water system is required – Our grooved foil covered insulation panels are of a unique design and provide many advantages over other insulation products when used with our 16mm pipe warm water underfloor heating systems.
Effectively four products in one, these Insulation Panels comprise a rigid thermal insulation material with radiused grooves at 100mm spacings positioned in the upper surface. The upper surface has a metallized foil bonded to it, following into the grooves, which acts as a radiant surface improving heat transfer and reducing system start up times.
The grooves in the insulation securely retain our 16mm Pex-Al-Pex pipe in the correct position, eliminating the need for supplementary fixings.
Size: Length- 1200, Width- 1200, Depth- Optional from 30 – 80mm (Each panel = 1.44m²)
Construction: EPS Board
Thermal Conductivity: 0.036 W/mK
Design: 12 grooves @ 100mm centres + radius returns with 3 straight runs at the top of each panel for flow and returns
A polythene vapour barrier is laid on top of the concrete slab or wood floor and the panels are then laid across the whole area. Our 16mm Pex-Al-Pex pipes are then laid into the grooves and the floor finish, tongued & grooved chipboard or wood strip flooring, minimum 18mm for standard domestic applications and 25mm for commercial applications, is then laid directly over the panels, leaving a small expansion gap around the perimeter of the room. In areas of heavy traffic, timber supports can be placed directly beneath the floor joints.
The hi-tec foil layer ensures maximum even heat distribution across the entire floor surface, and due to the fact that the pipe is directly below your finished floor, the warm up time is drastically reduced compared to screed systems.
