High compressive strength insulation with integrated underfloor heating for floating floors
- Fully foiled layer maximises heat output
- High compressive strength insulation provides strong support
- Faster to install than traditional insulation panels thanks to multi-directional channels
- Completely silent on warm up and cool down
OMNIE FoilFloat system can be laid over a flat and even, solid floor. This system provides underfloor heating within a floating insulation floor where others install their own floor over. The floor by nature of the construction, will float over the underfloor heating system.
The universal panels provide the support for the fully floating floor deck that is laid over. Each panel is manufactured from extruded polystyrene insulation (XPS) which has a high compressive strength, suitable for floating floor applications.
The heat diffusers are pre-bonded and made from soft temper aluminium. As no thick rigid plates are used the panels are easily trimmed on site. Once the panels are in place, the pipe is pressed into the channels piercing the foil diffuser. To complete the floor a tongue and groove deck or floor finish is laid over.
The product is available in standard thicknesses of 18, 25 and 50mm. These all use 16.5mm pipe except for the 18mm thick FoilBoard, this uses 12mm pipe.
How to install OMNIE FoilFloat
Heat outputs are dependent on the water temperature, floor construction, system dimensioning, floor finish & design conditions. Contact us for advice and information.
Heat outputs below are based on:
16.5mm PE-RT pipe at 150mm centres, with 18mm chipboard laid under 15mm wood and carpet & underlay
Air Temperature = 20°C.
|Structural Layer + Floor Finish
|Floor and Return Water Temperature (˚C)
18mm chipboard deck – 15mm Wood Finish (0.1m²K/W)
18mm Timber Direct Structural Finish (0.13m²K/W)
18mm chipboard deck – Carpet & Underlay (0.15 m²K/W)
