Key Information: • Both Concrete or screeded need insulation directly below the pipework to minimise downward heat losses. • The thickness and grade of the insulation varies with the particular design criteria. • A clip rail system or staples, or pipe positioning panels can be used to hold the pipe work firmly in place in line with the designed layout. • Screed depth will vary according to the type of screed used, but for a sand-cement screed the depth is generally no less than 65mm with 75mm being the optimum. • Special screed additives are not required, but if used, will have no effect on the pipe work. • Maximum Heat Output: 100 W/m².
