AL HEX Foil Diffuser
OMNIE systems benefit from the AL HEX® foil diffuser. This unique diffuser technology significantly improves the in-channel foiled surface area that is in contact with the warm water pipe. This means that the heat is more effectively transferred from the pipe into the foil, which in turn improves heat transfer into the floor.
The AL HEX® system eliminates the effects of ‘striping’ – where heat remains in the warm water pipe and doesn’t diffuse out into the UFH panel effectively. Striping within the floor means that hot spots and hot lines can be felt on the floor surface finish. Prolonged effects of striping can lead to damage in the floor finish as well as in the subfloor, especially if attempts to improve diffusion using high water temperatures are used.
The AL HEX® system is included as standard on all OMNIE products that incorporate a foil diffuser.
Please see individual products for information on their heat output.
