Low Profile Underfloor System

Low Profile Underfloor System

The Hercuglas low profile underfloor system is a lightweight, heavy-duty floor heating system that requires no screed and due to its thin depth of only 10mm is recommended for renovations where ceiling heights are fixed. It is designed to be used with Hercuglas 10mm PEX pipe, which is inserted into the insulation boards. The PEX pipe is at the heart of our system due to its strong, flexible and kink-resistant nature and also comes with our best warranties and guarantees.

Advantages

  • System height from 3.2 to 5 cm including the final floor. The system is designed around special gypsum fiberboards which are produced under pressure from special gypsum which is reinforced with cellulose fibers and specially processed with hydrophobic additives for moisture resistance.
  • Ideal system for insulating building floors from air carried sounds.
  • Ability to lay any type of final floor.
  • Ideal system for old and new residences.
  • Flexible PEX MD 10mm pipe with high thermal conductivity for energy saving.
  • Immediate heating distribution and elimination of inertia phenomenon. Due to its small mass and its high thermal conductivity as a system (pipe and board), it heats the room instantly. It distributes heat 8% quicker than the typical heating radiators.
  • Compared to the typical under-floor heating systems it saves up to 20% energy and 50% compared to heating radiators. The new system achieves almost the same heat output per square meter compared to a typical under-floor heating system and, at the same time, contains 60% less water in its hydraulic network.
  • Low weight. The total weight of this system is 20kg/m² without the final floor, instead of 90 kg/m².
  • Certified system output with standard thermal conductivity coefficient which does not depends on other factors (e.g. thermal concrete).
  • Drying procedure not needed.
  • Low thermal expansion.
  • Smaller cabinets and manifolds.
  • Can be combined with all heat sources
