Benefits of AluPlate™ fit-from-above

Underfloor heating blog

Easy to install

Designed for installation between joists, our AluPlate™ fit-from-above are flexible enough to be able to be installed between battens over joist. While this does mean there is a slight increase in the height of the floor, it is only minimal. Between joists however, there is no change in floor height whatsoever.


Due to the varying sizes in between joists and battens, AluPlate™ have to be versatile. They are available in a range of different sizes, with  different pipe spacings to enable a degree of flexibility in the joist centres.

Heat distribution

The AluPlate™ is particularly great for your customer in that it serves to spread the heat evenly, offering a greater efficiency and level of comfort. Not only that, our AluPlate™ fit-from-above are suitable for a whole range of applications, as long as the heat loss doesn’t exceed 75W/m².
