LowBoard RdB is a low build up underfloor heating system and acoustic separation in one. It is designed to dampen vibration and attenuate impact and airborne sound passing through floors with minimum loss of floor height. The system can be laid on solid or timber floors and is supplied with edge isolation strip.
The LowBoard RdB panels comprise of a 15mm moisture resistant high-density wood board combined with an 8mm acoustic rubber offset to provide a lap joint. As per our standard LowBoard 15 product the wood board layer has grooves routed to accept 12mm pipe and an aluminium layer bonded to the top which acts to spread the heat through the floor. The panels are laid in a brick pattern with the pipe installed by piercing through the soft temper aluminium diffuser into the multi directional channels. A finished floor deck or 6mm ply, MDF or similar is floated or mechanically fixed over the LowBoard RdB panels to complete the floor.
OMNIE LowBoard RdB system with a total build up of 23mm consists of an 8mm acoustic rubber layer and 15mm moisture resistant wood board routed to accept 12mm PE-RT pipe to DIN 4726 at 150mm centres and factory fitted with aluminium heat diffuser. LowBoard RdB lap jointed panels to be floated and glued together as a continuous layer over a sub-floor. A 6mm covering layer of ply, mdf or similar is then in turn mechanically fixed over the LowBoard panels to receive a final floor finish. If engineered timber or timber laminate is used there is no need for a covering layer on top of the LowBoard RdB. The system is to be designed, installed and commissioned to BS1264.
ULTRALOW – Our thinnest panel at only 15mm. This product reduces build up to only 22mm combined with a 6mm ply covering layer. For more information on UltraLow Technology see IG DS 24
LAYFAST – Speed up installation time. This product uses our multidirectional pipe channel system.
DRYSYSTEM – No wet trades required, designed for dry constructions.
