System description

The Floating system can be used in existing floor constructions as well as new build applications. It requires a flat and level solid subfloor for the insulation to fully support the floor finish on top. The insulation is pre-grooved to take the underfloor heating pipework and overlaid with foil to assist the distribution of heat.
The installation involves covering the complete floor area with insulation and where necessary using battens to provide extra support to door thresholds or perimeter edging. The pipework is then laid into the grooves as per the installation drawings and taken back to the manifold to complete the circuit. The system is then overlaid with a fully floating floor deck onto which your floor finish is applied. In the case of wooden floors, this can be laid directly on to the insulation to minimise height buildup and maximise the heating output.
