Wet underfloor heating in a depth of just 25 mm

Published:  15 July, 2006

A system for installing wet underfloor heating that enables systems to be fitted into a depth of 25 mm has been developed by Continental Underfloor Heating. Slimfix also halves installation time.

Slimfix is aimed primarily at the retro-fit market, the development of which has been limited by underfloor heating raising floors by 75 mm or more.

The approach is based on a flexible, thick foil through which the underfloor pipe brackets can be fitted. Its effectiveness has been tested by BSRIA, and the system has been trialled on a number of projects.

Slimfix is available for hard floors or joisted floor and can be installed above an existing screed, slab or wooden floor.

This fixing method is suitable for use across the entire Continental range.
