Underfloor heating is widely recognised by architects, consultants and engineers as being the most suitable solution for well-insulated modern homes. It provides higher levels of efficiency and control than conventional radiator systems. Underfloor heating is a system that uses pipes below the floor to circulate warm water producing a heat source capable of heating the air above it to any required temperature.
4 Types of Flooring Systems
FloorTherm Underfloor Heating can provide solutions to any floor structure required to meet the needs of todays marketplace. Solid floor constructions are the most common in the new build market but the need for alternative solutions are becoming increasingly important in the retrofit market. Our in-house design department can provide a system to match the needs for each individual project, while ensuring the regulations of EN1264 are always adhered to.
Solid Floor Screed
Our most common and energy-efficient solution that features components designed to interweave. This solution creates the ideal foundation for a heating supply network for heat retention.
Floating floor structures have become increasingly popular because they not only reduce the overall loading on the building, they also reduce sound transmissions throughout dwellings.
Aluminium Diffuser Plates
Joist floors do require a different approach to other flooring structures as the floor is not structurally capable of holding a screed. Instead, heat mass aluminium plates are fixed to joists.
Biscuit Mix Underfloor Heating
The dry “Biscuit Mix” underfloor heating gives extra thermal mass, reduces expansion and also reduces contraction noise which can be experienced as the floor heats and cools.
