Following on from my previous posts about the Polypipe Underfloor Heating House Packs, today I will quickly outline how to choose the right pack for your project and what the product codes mean.
The underfloor heating house packs provide you with a quick and easy way to select and order from our range of underfloor heating products, without the need to submit a design.
Packs are suitable for Solid, Floating, Suspended (double heat spreader plates) Overlay and
Overlay Lite floors. You can see a brief rundown of the different floor types here.
Packs can be used on new build and renovation projects where the heat losses are within the pack outputs. These outputs are 70W/m2 for Solid (at 200mm pipe spacing), Floating and Suspended floors or 100W/m2 for Solid (at 100mm pipe spacing), Overlay and Overlay Lite floors.
Each manifold must be located within 6m of the room entrance. If you require more than one manifold to achieve this you will require one pack per manifold.
HOUSE PACK SELECTION
1. Select the floor type applicable for room from the following options:
- Solid Floor (Code So)
- Floating Floor (Code F)
- Suspended Floor (Code D)
- OverlayTM (Code O)
- OverlayTMLite (Code OL)
Next select the total heated floor area served by the manifold rounded up to the nearest multiple of 10m2.
2.Select the total heated floor area for each room in m2
3.Select the total number of circuits required
(add the number of circuits required in each room)
Each circuit covers 15m2 for Solid (200mm centres), Suspended and Floating floor and approximately 10m2 for Solid (100mm centres), OverlayTM and OverlayTMLite Floors).
The order code for a 65m2 solid floor with 6 circuits would be So706, which would break down as follows:
