SYSTEM

  • Base UFH Mesh system specifically designed for use within a screeded floor construction
  • Re-enforced steel mesh grid to installed on top of suitable foil faced rigid insulation panel in accordance with required thermal performance (Steel mesh by others)
  • Installs directly to re-enforced steel mesh grid to suit specified thermal performance
  • Offers design flexibility to accommodate irregular design layouts
    Cable ties allow flexible pipe layout to suit exact design requirements
  • Additional cable tie fixings ensure secure pipe fixing during screeding process
  • Cost effective system offering excellent overall performance

INSTALL

  1. Rigid insulation required to subfloor in accordance with required thermal performance and current building regulations
  2. 8mm perimeter expansion edging strip to be installed to perimeter with 40mm polymer staples ensuring polyethylene skirting is covering sub floor rigid insulation to prevent expansion of screed and thermal bridging
  3. PEX pipework to be installed directly to re-enforced steel mesh grid with cable ties in accordance with underfloor heating design
  4. PEX pipe to be installed directly to re-enforced steel mesh grid in continuous lengths from distribution manifold spaced according to underfloor heating design
  5. Attach additional cable ties to PEX pipework as required to ensure pipework is firmly attached to steel re-enforced grid mesh so pipework remains in place in accordance with underfloor heating design
  6. Pipework to be pressure tested and remain under pressure
  7. 65-75mm sand and cement screed to be installed to manufacturers specification
