LowBoard 2® RdB (Acoustic) - thin just got thinner.

  • Combined finished floor deck and underfloor heating system for low build up applications.
  • LowBoard 2® RdB (Acoustic) comes with a pre-bonded acoustic insulating layer to the underside of the deck panel.
  • LowBoard 2® overlays an existing floor deck or subfloor with a complete system (no additional ply covering layers are needed unless tiling is required) This means the panel is 18mm thick to finished floor.
  • LowBoard 2® is made up of two interlocking panels that wrap around the pipe – the upper panel is printed to show where the pipe channels are located, so to ensure the pipes cannot be breached when mechanically fixing the panels to the subfloor.
  • Because the underside of the Cover Panel is foiled, the panel generates excellent heat output and a very fast warm up time.
  • No glue is needed to bond top panel to the lower panel – with LowBoard 2® these are mechanically fixed to speed up installation time and remove all wet processes.
  • OMNIE LowBoard 2® has a 15% higher heat output compared to OMNIE TorFloor® and LowBoard® and has a 40% higher heat output compared to unfoiled low build up systems or other overlay solutions.
  • LowBoard 2® is low temperature ready and designed with heat pumps in mind, this can reduce heating bills by up to 20% compared to aluminium spreader plate systems that also use heat pump as the heat source.
  • LowBoard 2® makes use of a new patented AL-HEX® heat diffuser technology – this means that the foil diffuser (which is part of the upper panel) has more surface area in contact with the heating pipe, transferring more heat into the upper panel and minimising heat losses.

The multi-directional LowBoard 2® Lower Panels are laid directly over an existing insulated floor or subfloor, keeping the floor the ceiling height of the area to an absolute minimum without sacrificing performance or introducing wet trades. A second, foiled upper panel of 6mm wood fibreboard wraps the heat diffuser around the pipework and is then screwed to the LowBoard 2® Lower Panel to complete the floor.

Excellent Underfloor Heating Performance

The LowBoard 2® underfloor heating panels come with pre-installed aluminium diffusers which are bonded to the upper layer – this increases the heat output and energy efficiency compared to other systems. To further maximise heat output whilst also reducing the flow temperature, the pipe is designed to fit as close to the floor finish as possible. The LowBoard 2® system is optimised to work in conjunction with heat pumps.

Simple Installation

Manufactured from moisture resistant medium density fibreboard, LowBoard 2® is a robust and high performance overlay system. LowBoard 2® panels can be easily floated over an existing floor, and the pipe is installed into the pre-cut channels. The flow and returns can either drop into an underspace (such as in older buildings) or simply run back to the manifold using dedicated LowBoard 2® highway panels (for example for upper floors).
