Why LowBoard®?

  • Perfect for retro fit projects

 

Low Profile Underfloor Heating System

LowBoard® comes in 15mm and 22mm thick underfloor heating panels thats are floated or mechanically fixed over a flat and even timber or solid sub floor. The low panel height makes it suitable where there is not enough floor-to-ceiling height to install a conventional underfloor heating system.

The panel has a multi-directional design for ease of installation. The universal panel is simply laid across the floor – no loop ends and straights to configure. The inclusion of the foil diffuser further increases the output and is pierced as the pipe is pressed into the channels.

A finished floor deck or 6mm ply/MDF or similar is floated or mechanically fixed over the LowBoard® panels to complete the floor.
