Application

Suitable for use over either pre-insulated floors, intermediate floors or those where it is impractical to lay a thicker system. Suitable for almost any floor finish, including tiles which can be bonded directly to the system.

Description

The Warmup Total-16 Low Profile System is suitable for renovation projects and off-plan installations of underfloor heating adding only 16 mm to the floor build-up. Once installed a variety of floor finishes can be laid over the system including tiles which can be bonded directly to the system.

Insulation boards:

The boards are lightweight yet heavy duty and are comprised of three components: straight, multi-feed and return boards.

The boards are made from high density expanded polystyrene (EPS), able to withstand 40 Tonnes/ m² and come with aluminium heat diffusion plates as an integral part of the board. Total-16 significantly speeds up installation time for both, new build and refurbishment projects, where floor height is at a premium.

Pipework:

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. Higher thermal conductivity enables the systems to emit between 3% and 6% more heat from the same water temperature as equivalent systems using PB pipe.

Manifold:

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.

System build-up:

  • Ceramic tiles/ stone (for residential areas).
  • Warmup adhesive (WHS-X-SEAL25).
  • Warmup primer (WHS-X-PRIMER).
  • Warmup PEX-A 12 mm pipe.
  • Warmup Total-16 includes pre-installed aluminium diffusion plates and insulation (0.034 W/m·K at 10°C).
  • Warmup adhesive.
  • Subfloor.

Features and benefits:

  • Low profile system, only 16 mm, with no screeding required.
  • Aluminium heat diffusion plates come pre-installed, reducing installation time.
  • Ultra-low weight - only 1.7 kg for the straight, multi-feed and return boards.
  • Can be supplied with or without return ends.
  • Uses 4iE smart WIFI thermostat.
  • Lifetime warranty when PEX-A pipe is used/ 50-year warranty for PE-RT or AL/PE-RT pipes.

Applications:

Suitable for use over either pre-insulated floors, intermediate floors or those where it is impractical to lay a thicker system. Suitable for almost any floor finish, including tiles which can be bonded directly to the system.

Product Options

Type:

  • The Warmup Total-16 boards are made of high-density EPS with a 400 kPa compressive strength; providing extremely high resistance for short and long term loads.
  • The straight boards come with aluminium heat diffusion plates as an integral part of the board. Return boards and the multi-feed boards, which are used to transit pipes to other heating circuits from the manifold, do not have the aluminium heat diffusion plates.
  • Insulation boards have zero Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) and a Global Warming Potential (GWP) of less than 5.

Accessories:

  • WHS-X-SEAL25: Mixed with WHS-X-BIND is used to adhere the Total-16 boards to the subfloor when you intend to have a tile floor finish or a vinyl floor finish in a wet area. To be used in situations where rising damp is an issue. WHS-X-SEAL25 MUST also be used to adhere tiles to the primed boards.
  • WHS-X-GLUE: Used to adhere the boards to the subfloor when you intend to have a tile floor finish. To be used when looking to minimise floor height.
  • WHS-X-PRIMER: The topside of the board must be primed if the intention is to apply tiles directly to the boards or you plan to self-level over the boards. For this, you should only use Warmup’s WHS-X-PRIMER. WHS-X-PRIMER has outstanding qualities as a primer for expanded polystyrene and aluminium.
