Our screeded Underfloor Heating (UFH) system is constructed of warm water UFH pipes, normally fixed to thermal insulation then encased within concrete or screed. UFH systems are designed to produce a specific thermal output by altering the frequency or density of the pipe spacing. Various screeds can be used ranging from self-levelling liquid screeds to semi-dry cementitious hand finished screeds. Screeds can be chemically altered to accelerate drying times or reduce thickness, are quick to lay and normally allow light foot traffic after 24 hours. Screeds are available to suit all types of commercial and domestic UFH installations and almost any type of floor covering, including carpet, ceramic and timber, can be used with this system.
Insulation is laid below the pipes to prevent downward heat loss and tacker pins are used to hold pipe work in place, whilst screed is being laid. Once your pipe work is installed, in accordance with the individual pipe layout we have designed for you, the system is filled with water and tested to determine that no damage has occurred during the installation process and also allows monitoring during screeding.
