Waters Edge, Weymouth, United Kingdom
Limited space and escalating property prices has
led developers to start to look upwards to make the best use of space. 'High
rise' developments in most cases aim to get the best quality through compact
living, often incorporating a number of new technologies to get the most from
limited space available. The Watersedge development in Weymouth offers all the
mod conveniences such as contemporary kitchens and granite work surfaces and
even in some developments a garden. Adding to the overall luxury feel of the
apartment underfloor heating was added to provide the occupants with the utmost
of comfort. Natural choice for the project was market leader in underfloor
heating Uponor Ltd.
Making the most of distribution outlets Uponor used
Ferndown Company UFH Now to aid in the quotation, design, supply and
installation on the project. The popularity of UFH is now giving life to a
number of specialist companies undertaking jobs that in the past may have only
been carried out by willing plumbers. Fully trained in providing quotations
using Uponor's 'pro-quote' system; installation time is significantly reduced
and expertise of the installer is increased.
16mm Multi Layer Composite Pipe has all the
advantages you come to expect from all the Uponor MLC piping systems; a 100%
oxygen tight pipe construction, form stable yet flexible plumbing technology
(pipe memory), limited expansion characteristics (similar to copper pipe) and
lastly a smooth internal bore (which eliminates scale build up on the internal
surface of the pipe). Multi layer is similarly at home in plumbing applications
as well as underfloor; as Uponor offer sizes from 12mm to 110mm in diameter,
all sharing the unique pressfit jointing system that requires no hotwork and
only takes 6 seconds to complete.
At the housing fairs of Kouvola, in summer 2019, was presented House Beauty which has the modern control system Uponor Smatrix Pulse for radiant underfloor heating and cooling system.
Uponor's radiant underfloor heating and cooling system was installed in a new single family house. During the record high heat wave, the system was in real action.
The 30 years old copper plumbing of the house were replaced with a Uponor composite system. The renovation was over in one day. The contractor for the job was LVI-Dalton Ltd from Klaukkala, Finland.
At the end of autumn 2013, Uponor's new product, Uponor Gray Water Filter Home, was installed in Ruuhijärvi, Nastola.
