SYSTEM

  • BaseTM 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

INSTALL

  1. Rigid insulation required to subfloor in accordance with required thermal performance and current building regulations (including membranes)
  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. Oxygen barrier pipework to be installed directly to re-enforced steel mesh grid with cable ties in accordance with underfloor heating design
  4. Oxygen barrier 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 oxygen barrier pipework as required to ensure pipework is installed as per the design
  6. Pipework to be pressure tested and remain under pressure
  7. 65-75mm sand and cement screed to be installed to manufacturers specification
