Tekwarm Lite Low Profile UFH Board

Elevate Your Flooring with Tekwarm Lite Low Profile UFH Board

Tekwarm Lite LP UFH Board is a state-of-the-art, low-profile insulated underfloor heating board designed for maximum efficiency and minimal floor height impact. Constructed from 300 kpa XPS (Extruded Polystyrene), this board offers high compressive strength, making it ideal for low profile underfloor heating systems. The durable cement coatings on both faces of the board allow for the direct application of tiles or wood flooring, providing a versatile foundation for a variety of floor finishes.

Key Features:

  • Optimal Thermal Efficiency: Enhances the performance of underfloor heating systems with its superior insulation properties.
  • Direct Flooring Application: Equipped with cement coatings for the immediate application of tiles or wood flooring.
  • Versatile Pipe Compatibility: Accommodates both 12mm and 16mm diameter underfloor heating pipes with radius returns.
  • Simplified Installation: Designed for quick installation over a flat level subfloor, suitable for both new builds and retrofit projects.

Installation & Application

Tekwarm Lite LP UFH Boards are engineered for ease of installation, providing a robust foundation for underfloor heating systems. Whether installed over timber or concrete bases, these boards can be fixed with mechanical fixings or adhered with a bed of combed tile adhesive as necessary. Flooring can generally be laid directly to the upper surface, simplifying the finishing process.

Benefits of Using Tekwarm Routed Insulation Boards for Underfloor Heating

Routed insulation boards are specialized panels designed for use in underfloor heating systems, featuring pre-cut channels for the easy installation of heating pipes or cables. Their design and material composition offer several benefits for both the efficiency of the heating system and the installation process. Below are the benefits of using routed insulation boards in underfloor heating systems, followed by guidance on their appropriate usage and finishing the floor after installation.

  1. Improved Thermal Efficiency: Routed insulation boards are made from materials with high thermal resistance, which significantly reduces heat loss downwards. This ensures that more heat is directed upwards into the room, improving the efficiency of the underfloor heating system and potentially lowering energy costs.

  2. Easy and Quick Pipe Installation: The pre-cut channels in the insulation boards are designed to precisely fit heating pipes or cables, making the installation process quicker and easier. This reduces the risk of installation errors and saves time for professionals and DIY installers alike.

  3. Enhanced Structural Integrity: These boards provide a solid base for the heating system, supporting the weight of the floor finish and the foot traffic above. This can help in preventing cracks or damage to the heating elements and the floor covering.

  4. Uniform Heat Distribution: The arrangement of the pipes or cables in the pre-cut channels helps in achieving a uniform distribution of heat across the floor surface, eliminating cold spots and ensuring a comfortable indoor environment.

  5. Versatility: Routed insulation boards can be used with various types of underfloor heating systems (water-based or electric) and are compatible with many types of floor finishes, offering flexibility in design and use.

  6. Noise Reduction: These boards can also offer acoustic benefits by dampening sounds, contributing to a quieter indoor environment, which is particularly beneficial in multi-story buildings.

When to Use Routed Insulation Boards

Routed insulation boards should be considered in the following scenarios:

  • New Construction or Major Renovations: When accessibility to the subfloor is not an issue, and there's an opportunity to optimise energy efficiency from the outset.
  • Rooms with High Heat Loss: Such as basements or rooms with large windows, where additional insulation can significantly improve thermal efficiency.
  • When Uniform Heating is a Priority: In spaces where eliminating cold spots is essential for comfort and energy efficiency.

Finishing the Floor After Installing Underfloor Heating

After the underfloor heating system has been installed with routed insulation boards, the finishing process typically involves the following steps:

  1. Secure the Heating Elements: Ensure that heating pipes or cables are securely fixed within the routed channels to prevent movement during the floor finishing process.

  2. Conduct a System Test: Before laying the final floor covering, it's crucial to test the heating system to ensure it operates correctly.

  3. Apply a Levelling Compound (if necessary): For certain types of floor finishes, applying a self-levelling compound or screed over the insulation boards and heating elements creates a smooth, level surface.

  4. Install the Floor Finish: Depending on the chosen material (tiles, laminate, wood, etc.), the floor finish is then laid on top of the insulation boards. It's important to select a floor finish that is compatible with underfloor heating, ensuring it can withstand the heat output and allow efficient heat transfer.

  5. Final System Check: Once the floor finish is installed, perform another test of the heating system to ensure everything functions as expected after the complete installation.
