Since adding the Polypipe Underfloor Heating House Packs to the Trading Depot website recently we have been encouraged by their success. They are an easy way to get your project started and there is a pack for every floor type.
Whether you are planning a new build, or renovating a whole house there is a house pack to suit your needs. If your project is a little smaller there are also room packs available up to 30m2. There is even a smaller pack (5m2) intended for installation in a bathroom.
This blog post will concentrate on the House Packs and will briefly outline the different types of pack available and run through what is included.
The different options are:
Solid Floor House Packs
Polypipe underfloor heating in solid or screeded floors incorporates the unique Polypipe screeded red floor panels. The lightweight plastic floor panels nest for easy storage and carrying.
Floating Floor House Packs
The Polypipe floating floor system is designed for use in applications where a solid floor installation is not suitable due to structural weight limitations or where a ‘dry build’ floor option is required.
Suspended floor House Packs
Designed for use in timber suspended or battened floors the Polypipe suspended floor system uses aluminium double heat spreader plates to transmit the heat evenly across the finished floor surface
Overlay House Packs
The Overlay™ system is available in 2 panel types to allow for installation to all build types and floor coverings. Overlay™ panel is a fibrous panel used for heavyweight floor coverings such as ceramics, or where the floor covering needs to be secured directly to the panel, e.g. solid wood
Overlay Lite House Packs
Overlay™ Lite is a high compressive strength, lightweight insulated panel used for lightweight floor coverings, e.g. laminate, engineered wood and carpet. Due to its ease of handling and cutting it is also more suitable for larger areas and multiple room installations.
Underfloor Heating House Packs -What IS included?
- Appropriate Flooring product for the area as selected
- Manifold appropriate to the number of circuits
- Pipe Coils for the selected number of circuits (80m Coils)
- Isolation Valves and Underfloor Central Heating Control Pack ( Usually PB970015 which includes pump, 2 port motorised valve, UFCH Mixer valve bend and adaptors )
- Pipe Stiffeners
On the Trading Depot website we give a list of all the contents but it is worth noting that because we do not know how many rooms you will want to control, no thermostats or actuators are included.
These should be purchased separately along with the wiring centre and appropriate Slave unit.
Part 2 of this post will cover a full rundown of what else you might need for your project.
