07 | BISCUIT SCREED underfloor heating system

BaseTM UFH Biscuit Screed underfloor heating system is specifically designed for use within a joisted floor construction. Installallation directly between joists with screed layer finishing flush with the top of the joist. Pipe work is fixed directly to rigid type insulation with pipe clips allowing design flexibility. The Pipe work is encased within 25-30mm sand and cement biscuit screed layer ensuring a very even heat distribution across the floor area. One of the key benefits of the Biscuit screed layer is that it offers a high heat conductivity and heat retention.
