Underfloor heating designed for use within battened or suspended timber floors, including TJI joist constructions.
The Warmup Tectora System is designed for use within battened or suspended timber floors, including TJI joist constructions. The aluminium diffusion plates fit across two battens or joists at 400 mm centres to create a responsive heating system.
The Tectora Diffusion plates are ideal for timber floors. There are no wet trades involved and consequently, no waiting for the installation to dry before the floor can be completed. They are lightweight and easy to install creating a responsive efficient underfloor heating system with an even heat distribution. If you have irregularly spaced joists or battens the Econna System would be better suited.
The space between the battens or joists is fitted with rigid insulation leaving a 16 mm gap between the top of the insulation layer and the top of the battens or joists. The Tectora Diffusion plates are then fixed to the top of the battens or joists, supported by the insulation layer. The pipe is then laid before the floor deck is applied.
Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) or foil-faced Polyisocyanurate (PIR) boards available:
The Warmup PEX-A pipe is formed as a single extrusion with an adhesive layer and EVOH oxygen barrier. The EVOH layer restricts the ingress of oxygen into the heating system, reducing oxidation of critical components in the primary system and extending their service life.
The minimum 70% cross-linking within the PE material provides superior mechanical properties to the pipe, with a maximum working temperature and pressure of 95°C and 6 bar respectively. The PEX-A pipe has a high thermal conductivity of 0.41 W/m·K, substantially greater than an equivalent polybutylene pipe at 0.22 W/m·K. This enables the systems to emit between 3% and 6% more heat from the same water temperature as equivalent systems using PB pipe.
The Warmup PE-RT pipe is a five layer extrusion of polyethylene of raised temperature resistance. It is manufactured as follows, PE-RT/ Adhesive/ Oxygen barrier (EVOH)/ Adhesive/ PE-RT. This type of pipe is suitable in situations where there is an absolute guarantee that temperatures above 70ºC cannot be generated. This is a cost-competitive pipe and is ideal for all types of installations.
The Warmup Stainless Steel Manifold range provides flexible zoning and water regulation for 2 to 12 underfloor heating circuits. Supplied complete with Taconova Flow Meters, Fill/ Drain Valves, Air Vents and a Thermomanometer, it is equipped with all the features needed to commission an underfloor heating system quickly and confidently.
