Installing underfloor heating

Underfloor heating blog

Underfloor heating has transformed itself from a distant mumbling amongst contractors to a vibrant topic of conversation amongst builders, home owners and construction planners alike. Efficient and easy to install into any building project, under floor heating systems have taken over the all important task of keeping a building warm. Sorry radiators, but you just don't cut it anymore.

There are a number of ways to fit under floor heating into your floor whether you already have your floor decking fitted or not.

Fit from above plates

Our AluPlate™ system can be quickly and efficiently snapped into place without any messy instillation techniques. Heat from the pipes spreads quickly and evenly across the AluPlate™, giving the building warmth. Fit from above AluPlate™ doesn't stop there, check out these added benefits;

  • ‍Used between battens with only a small increase in the floor height when fitted "above joist" or with no change in the floor height when fitted "between joist".
  • Suitable for where heat loss is less than 75W/m² making it perfectly suitable for most applications.

Available in different sizes and pipe spacing. This allows for more flexibility of joist centres and flow temperatures.
