Unique multi-directional panel system to improve installation time and make laying pipe easy and straightforward
Completely silent on warm up and cool down

Product Description


Why FoilBoard Floating?

  • Fully foiled layer maximises heat output
  • High compressive strength insulation provides strong support
  • Faster to install than traditional insulation panels thanks to multi-directional channels
  • Completely silent on warm up and cool down

High Compressive Strength Insulation with Integrated Heat Diffuser for Maximum Heat Output.

OMNIE FoilBoard Floating system is laid over a flat & even solid floor.

The universal panels provide the support for the fully floating floor deck that is laid over. Each panel is manufactured from extruded polystyrene insulation (XPS) which has a high compressive strength, suitable for floating floor applications.

The heat diffusers are pre-bonded and made from soft temper aluminium. As no thick rigid plates are used the panels are easily trimmed on site. Once the panels are in place, the pipe is pressed into the channels piercing the foil diffuser. To complete the floor a tongue and groove deck or floor finish is laid over.

The product is available in standard thicknesses of 18, 25, 35, 50 and 75mm. These all use 16.5mm pipe except for the 18mm thick FoilBoard, this uses 12mm pipe.
