Fast to install, maximise heat output

For batten Floor Types

Product Description

Why FoilBoard?

  • Fully foiled layer maximises heat output
  • High grade insulation increases energy efficiency
  • Faster to install than traditional insulation panels thanks to multi-directional channels
  • Completely silent on warm up and cool down

Integrated insulation & heating panel for timber floors

Our FoilBoard system can be laid between timber battens at 400 or 600mm centres.

The universal FoilBoard panels are manufactured from XPS insulation with pre-bonded soft temper aluminium. As no thick rigid plates are used the panels can be easily trimmed on site. The panels are designed so that when a floor deck is laid over and fixed to the battens of the same depth they will be in direct contact with the heat diffuser, ensuring good thermal transfer.

The nature of the FoilBoard panel to transfer heat efficiently increases performance by over 30% compared to systems that rely on air and do not use heat diffusers. Once the panels are in place the pipe is pressed into the channels piercing the foil diffuser and fitted into the notches where the pipe passes between battens.
