Solid wood floors guaranteed with underfloor heating

Solid wood floors guaranteed with underfloor heating

Junckers Ltd

Hatfield Place, a luxury country house wedding venue, chose Junckers solid wood flooring fitted with Leveldek underfloor heating system for its newly developed building. The new foyer, ceremony hall and wedding breakfast room overlook the original walled garden, with views of the beautiful parkland to the rear. The redeveloped building is bright and airy with large feature windows and high ceilings. In the foyer, a spacious room with seating for up to 300 guests, Junckers 22mm Oak Variation flooring provides a warm and lively backdrop, adding character with its subtle colour variations and natural grain patterns. In contrast, the ceremony hall and wedding breakfast room were fitted with Junckers’ Oak Harmony plank flooring, a wide board floorboard which gives a more uniform impression required for the formal spaces. Both floor types were pre-finished in Junckers’ popular Ultramatt lacquer, a strong and durable finish with no surface sheen. Delivered pre-finished, the floors are ready to walk on as soon as they have been installed and will withstand years of dancing and dining with the correct maintenance. The floors in all three rooms were installed over Leveldek, Junckers’ fully integrated underfloor heating and levelling system. Working in partnership with Jupiter Heating Systems, the Leveldek system was developed to simplify the specification process to offer a versatile levelling system, underfloor heating and solid hardwood floor from a single point of supply. Underfloor heating is the most efficient way of heating a large, open area. Specifying Leveldek offered Hatfield Place an all-in-one solution whereas traditionally, installation of the heating system, levelling system and the floor itself would have to be separately sourced. The system is efficient and cost effective to run, ideal for use in a large space. For energy efficiency and fast acting warm-up time, the heating pipes are installed directly beneath the floorboards and the panels are insulated and reinforced for outstanding heat output. The system can be used on an uneven substrate as varying heights can be achieved with the stacking cradles. For more than 30 years, Junckers’ wooden floors have been recognised as the only type of solid hardwood flooring on the market stable enough to be guaranteed for use over underfloor heating. Junckers offers a full guarantee for the system, which is recommended for residential and commercial buildings as well as sports and dance. The flooring contractor was PICA Floorings.

Charters Ascot -Luxury Private Residences

nVent Thermal Management

To provide high quality instantaneous hot water, the developers were persuaded to move away from a conventional recirculation system to the higher efficiency single-pipe solution, using nVent RAYCHEM HWAT-M self regulating cable and the unique nVent RAYCHEM RayClic connection system. In addition, nVent RAYCHEM T2Red and T2Reflecta underfloor heating was used in the main living areas. The self-regulating cable could provide very responsive heating without overheating, thus avoiding damage to the high quality wooden flooring. Underfloor heating was also used in the bathrooms, using nVent RAYCHEM T2Quicknet. All fully integrated with the BMS to avoid individual controllers.

Irish new build development sees heat pumps and radiators working side by side...

Stelrad Radiators

There’s a new build housing development in deepest Ireland that is proving that new renewable heating systems and radiators make excellent partners.Eastmount, on Chapel Road in Delgany, close to Greystones and just 45 minutes south of Dublin in County Wicklow, can be found just across the Greystones golf course from the Irish sea. The development by D-Res Properties, will provide 74 new three, four and five bedroom homes with open plan living and features high levels of insulation, air to water heat pumps and Stelrad’s Compact with Style radiators throughout the properties to ensure the homes are warm and cosy throughout the year. In all, around 850 radiators will be installed at Eastmount.“This is an excellent example of exactly why radiators are fully compatible with modern renewable heating systems,” says Stelrad’s Head of Marketing, Chris Harvey. “If you believed all the hype you’d expect to see underfloor heating with heat pumps, but particularly in Ireland where they are a fair bit ahead of us in the UK, they are pairing heat pumps with radiators extensively and finding that when the radiators are correctly sized, and installed in homes with excellent quality insulation, they deliver excellent heating performance. An air to water heat pump is very different technology to a traditional boiler driven heating system but once you understand that and play to a heat pump’s features and benefits, the lower temperature heating system can deliver more than adequate heating and hot water and in addition offer lower heating bills and lower emissions alongside higher energy efficiency – it’s a win, win solution for new homes builders and for the new homes owners who are lucky enough to live in these homes and benefit from the warmth and comfort they provide.”The Compact with Style radiators are sleek, attractive radiators that far from being simply a heating appliance, add significant smartness to the rooms in which they are installed – with the subtle vertical lined casings matching the attractive décor in these striking new homes.

Dry Installs Case Study, Manhattan Loft Project, London

Dry Installs Case Study, Manhattan Loft Project, London

The Solid Wood Flooring Company

In Manhattan Loft gardens, they have a dry install system and are going to use the recommended system from Sika, then fit the floor fully bonded with our SW890 adhesive. Installation and site visits are part of our service. With large residential tower developments, there will normally be slabs for each floor. These will take at least two years to dry out completely. This means that unless the slabs have a DPM applied there will always be a chance of moisture affecting whatever is laid on the floor be it a cradle system or dry install underfloor heating system.

Contractors next used Styccobond F46 pressure sensitive acrylic adhesive to install the vinyl sheet flooring. Next, Styccobond F41, a solvent free acrylic polymer emulsion adhesive was used to fit the carpet tiles.
Underfloor Insulation by Q-Bot

Underfloor Insulation by Q-Bot

ECON Polyurethanes, a BASF distributor

As part of a drive to improve energy efficiency and reduce fuel poverty, Camden Council specified Q-Bot Underfloor Insulation which uses a robotic system to spray foam onto the underside of the floor. The 48 properties included various housing types, differing in age and size. The energy savings achieved by the upgrades were modelled in SAP using elemental U-values for the individual floors and the airtightness test results of each property. This enabled the energy improvements to be calculated against a range of scenarios with alternative retrofit measures.
