Timber Floors

Our underfloor heating solutions can be customised to suit timber and wooden floors:

Heat Emission Plates

Uponor has developed various heat emission plates (HEP's) to suit many timber floor applications. There are 3 plate sizes suitable for Uponor Pipes, as follows:  

HEP411: For use with sprung timber floors with battens spaced at 411mm centres, such as Junckers Unobat and Blubat Sports Floor System, suspended or battened floors with joists/supports at 411mm centres. 20mm PEX pipe only.

HEP400 : For use with timber suspended or battened floors with joists/supports at 400mm centres.

HEP300: For use with timber suspended or battened floors with joists/supports at 300mm centres. 20mm PEX pipe only.

Timber floor considerations

There are many types of wood flooring which are considered suitable for use with Underfloor Heating and, equally, there are several methods of installing timber, which also must be taken into consideration before the system is designed. Particular attention must be paid to the moisture content of wooden floors. Not all timber floors are suitable for UFH and advice should be sought from the flooring supplier or from the trade association TRADA.
