OMNIE Ultimate2 Install Guide
As OMNIE continues to develop and improve product information and instructions it is recommended you check the OMNIE website (www.omnie.co.uk) for the latest Datasheets & Install Guides that may have been superseded post delivery of your system.
Please read all stages of this install guide before proceeding with the installation.
This specification and installation guide has been compiled to assist in your project when installing floor finishes onto OMNIE Ultimate2.
The OMNIE Ultimate2 panel will offer nothing in the way of rigidity or add any strength to the substrate, so it must be completely deflection free before starting. The use of primer is recommended in line with best practice guidelines and will improve adhesion. The substrate must be level, dry, free of frost, solid, load-bearing, stable and free of dust, dirt, oil, grease, solvents and loose parts.
STORAGE & FLOOR PREPARATION
If it is necessary to store the system once you have taken delivery, ensure it is kept in the following conditions:
Ensure existing slab meets at least SR2 (5mm deviation in 2m) requirements for floor regularity (BS8204) and preferably SR1 (3mm deviation in 2m).
NOTE: Any deviations beyond the above will result in the required quantity of screed changing. OMNIE cannot be responsible for shortages due to site conditions that don’t meet the recommended floor levels.
INSTALLING THE ULTIMATE PANEL
Before laying panels, apply the edge foam to the perimeter of the room. This is for the panel and levelling compound to butt up against once installed.
The OMNIE Ultimate2 Panels should be installed across the floor as shown, trimming the panels at the end of each run.
Remove the sticky backed film from the underside of each panel and push onto the floor, ensuring the panels are adhered to the floor consistently across the whole panel. If the floors are dusty, they may need priming first to achieve a strong bond.
Cut channels where flows and returns are needed. A hot blade cutter is recommended to reduce waste and create a tight channel.
INSTALLING THE PIPE
Once the Ultimate2 panels have been installed, and the adhesive has dried, the pipe can be installed.
Starting at the manifold and referring to the OMNIE CAD design, insert the pipe into the channels. The minimum temperature for laying the pipe should be +5°C.
NOTE: If the pipework is kinked during the installation, the coil must be replaced.
Once all of the Ultimate2 panels and pipes have been laid, they should be protected with walking boards (especially in areas with high foot traffic).
Hydraulic pressure test each circuit and keep under pressure whilst the screed is being laid. See the pressure test guide for full pressure testing guidelines. (PT UFH 01.1)
LAY THE SCREED
The top of the OMNIE Ultimate2 panel is pre-primed, so the leveling compound is poured directly over.
Can be walked on: approx. 4-6 hours
