Underfloor heating case study

Product: AluPlas® with pipe decoiler

There are still tradesmen in the UK that haven't had much experience of installing underfloor (yet...).  For this particular project, the installer hadn't fitted an underfloor heating system before, so he needed as much help and advice he could get.

With our easy-to-follow pipe layout drawing and detailed manual, we make sure that the system is as simple to fit as possible, no matter how experienced - or otherwise - you are. Knowing that you have the right tools for the job, and that we're on the end of the phone, is incredibly reassuring for a rookie underfloor installer.

The solution

The installer wanted the most effective system - and a pain-free installation method. Our experienced Technical Sales Adviser discussed the best installation method with him. The customer had a traditional installation throughout, with liquid screed covering insulation board on top of a concrete base slab.  With this in mind, our adviser suggested the use of AluPlas® pipe with a pipe decoiler.

When installing the pipework, the decoiler gave a hassle-free way of uncoiling the pipe without needing a second person to assist on the job. Using AluPlas® pipe with its aluminium core meant that when the AluPlas® pipe needed to be shaped for the returns, it retained its formed bend to allow for greater control of the pipework.  

Installing underfloor heating for the first time can seem daunting. At Continal, we are on hand to make it as easy and stress-free as possible, and help bust the myth that it's complicated to install.

The result

With Continal's dedicated Technical Sales Adviser available on-call to give great advice, the client completed the installation pleased with the stress-free and easy installation, and his customer was really happy with it. The installer is now very happy to work with us for future installs, and praised our no-nonsense and straightforward advice.
