Suspended Floor Underfloor Heating Diagram

Designed for use in timber suspended or battened floors the Polypipe suspended floor system uses aluminium double heat spreader plates to transmit the heat evenly across the finished floor surface.

Suspended Floor Underfloor Heating Description

Suitable for joist widths of 300mm to 450mm the spreader plates are simply fixed to the joist using small nails or staples. The pipe is then run in to the preformed grooves of the panels which are designed to hold the pipe securely at 225mm average centres. A layer of insulation below the panels will ensure that almost all of the heat generated passes up in to the room.

The Polypipe suspended floor system is also suitable for use with ‘sprung’ flooring systems as used in sports halls, etc. Any other services, such as drainage or electrical wiring, should be installed below the insulation layer.

The floor joists then need to be notched or drilled in accordance with Building Regulations. This facilitates the passage of the pipe between the joist gap to allow the entry and exit of the pipe to and from the room.
The spreader plates can then be fixed evenly across the joists and in accordance with your installation design.
