The FoilBatten system can be laid between timber battens at 400 or 600mm centres. The universal FoilBatten panels are manufactured from extruded polystyrene insulation (XPS) with pre-bonded soft temper aluminium. As no thick rigid plates are used the panels can be easily trimmed on site. The panels are designed so that when a floor deck is laid over and fixed to the battens of the same depth they will be in direct contact with the heat diffuser, ensuring good thermal transfer. The nature of the FoilBatten panel to transfer heat efficiently increases performance by over 30% compared to systems that rely on air and do not use heat diffusers. Once the panels are in place the pipe is pressed into the channels piercing the foil diffuser and fitted into notches where the pipe passes between battens.
OMNIE FoilBatten systems are universal panels comprising of 25 & 50mm extruded polystyrene insulation (XPS) with pre-bonded heat diffusers to be installed between battens at 400/600mm centres. PE-RT pipe to DIN 4726 of 12mm to be inserted into the pre-routed grooves. Floor deck to be laid and fixed over. The system to be designed, installed and commissioned to BS1264.
DRYSYSTEM – No wet trades required, designed for dry constructions.
