Underfloor heating is widely used due to space saving, cost-efficient operation and better thermal comfort it attributes to a space compared to conventional systems. The difference from a conventional heating system is that the final hot water receptors are not heating radiators but the floor itself, which acts as a heating source. After the floor has been thermally insulated from below, a piping network is spread that carry hot water to the entirety of its surface.
As far as the floor thermal insulation is concerned, extruded polystyrene panels such as STYROPAN XPS R&F or expanded polystyrene panels (white or graphite), such as EPS 150 or EPS 200 can be used.
We also produce a special underfloor heating panel that is made of expanded polystyrene and has a special configuration of caps on the surface. This panel offers proper thermal insulation, ensures perfect pipe support before they are covered with screed and helps to keep the proper ping installation distances. Its dimensions are: 90 x 60 cm, thickness: 22 mm and total thickness with caps: 48 mm. The thermal conductivity coefficient is λ=0,033 W/m*K.
