New build - Truro, Cornwall

Underfloor heating case study

Product: AluPlate™ fit-from-below

Continal has systems that suit all building types and floor constructions - so whatever the project specifies, we'll find a solution. In this case, the customer was unsure whether he could have underfloor heating throughout the property, as the first-floor deck was already installed.

Our client has worked with us before; and he knew that with our high quality components and bespoke systems, we've always supplied systems that meet his customer's' needs.  So when we suggested that we had a ready-made solution to the first-floor problem, he was all ears...

The solution

As the build was timber framed, the floor deck needed to be in place for structural purposes. This meant that there was only a void underneath for the underfloor heating installation.

Our Technical Sales Adviser suggested using our innovative fit-from-below system. The installers use a thin aluminium plate with a 'J' end profile to securely attach the pipe, with no fixings. The plate is simply screwed in single runs to the underside of the decking, giving a clean and efficient install.  

The customer knew the benefits of using underfloor heating as a primary heat source; so when he knew that we had an effective solution, his decision became easy. Along with the fit-from-below system, we supplied our 16mm SUPERflex™ pipe to make the install as easy as possible. This is a great alternative to our AluPlas® pipe if you're fitting UFH systems between joists, due to its increased flexibility.

Installing underfloor heating when the first floor’s already in place needn’t be a problem. The fit-from-below system gives you a straightforward install, and a fantastic result.

The result

The new build received an energy-efficient underfloor heating system to both floors, providing greater interior design freedom. The customer was impressed at how proactive Continal was in designing a solution, and plans to use us again.
