Underfloor heating is growing in popularity both in construction and conservatory market. It has been used in many countries for several decades but still viewed in the UK as a specialist market outside the competence of most heating engineers.
Underfloor heating pipe incorporates an oxygen diffusion barrier providing maximum protection against oxygen ingress. The pipe is manufactured by a five layer co-extrusion process, with a layer or Ethylene Vinyl Alcohol enclosed between polybutylene inner and outer layers.
The design of the barrier pipe offers significant advantages over underfloor heating pipe with and external coating. Because the barrier is fully enclosed it is not subject to physical damage. It is highly flexible which means it is the ideal material for an underfloor heating installation, allowing the installer to form pipe circuits with ease.
