Case Study: Walderslade, Kent

The customer of this new-build project was undecided whether they wanted to use underfloor heating on the first floor, and indeed, how it could be fitted into the floor build-up.

  • Ground Floor Underfloor Heating & First Floor Underfloor solution on joists

For the ground floor InvaHeat specified the use of its screeded InvaMatt system in conjunction with 16mm pipe.

Evaluating the best solution for the first floor underfloor heating system InvaHeat proposed the unique structural grooved chipboard solution incorporating 12mm underfloor pipe with a 22mm floor build up.

The boards are a high grade moisture-resistant tongue/grooved chipboard panel, that is pre-grooved to take 12mm UFH pipework. Pipework spacings are at 150mm, with radius returns and transit channels to facilitate installation.

Area: 250 m2
Build Type: Residential New Build
Fixing System:
Ground - Inva Matt
First Floor - Inva Struct
Control Type: Joule E91 Touchscreen

The customer got an energy efficient underfloor heating system to both floors of their newly-built house.

With warm air now rising from the floor, the solution provides the homeowner with ultimate comfort and ensures no warm air is wasted. The silent-running UFH solution also gives added comfort by reducing noise.
