The evolution of the Infloor product line is now with the addition of pre-assembled stainless steel manifolds. The high-quality, extremely efficient, and easy-to-install manifolds are a great compliment to the family of Infloor components. And you are going to love the features and benefits! “We are thrilled to welcome this first-rate addition to our product line, which seems to be a preferred component across the country by contractors,” said Infloor President Michael Willburn. “The completely assembled stainless steel manifolds are crafted in Italy, known for taking great pride in quality, and comes with the mounting brackets already attached, and a… READ MORE
We recently found our name in an international publication from Germany. The news about Infloor Heating Systems® and InfloorPERT® being granted the status as Registered Trademarks in the United States made its way to Germany where KWD-globalpipe shared the story. KWD-globalpipe is an international weekly newsletter with news about products, companies, and materials in the field of plastic pipes and fittings, published by HIX Publishing. The publishing house began in 1986 when Winfried Hamich (1938 – 2009) set up an information service with the aim of collecting and supplying market data about plastic material in buildings. Today HIX Publishing issues various newsletters… READ MORE
Tubing is an essential part of every hydronic radiant heating system. Like veins, it transports warm fluid, and the heat output, throughout your floors, turning them into comfortable, warm surfaces. We offer the best PEX and PERT tubing for our hydronic systems, available in a variety of sizes, ranging from 3/8″ to 1″. These tubes provide excellent performance in radiant applications and provide the system designer with the greatest options for component selection. With five sizes available, how do you know which one is best for your project? These general rules can help.
One of our most common and effective installation applications is Therma-Floor, commonly known as a gypcrete. The gypsum underlayment is designed to pour over tubing, encasing the tubes in crack resistant, noncombustible gypsum, acting as the thermal mass. Therma-Floor systems can be used in many different situations, because it can be installed on top of subfloors and concrete slabs, whether existing or new. Its special formula resists breakdown up to 150ºF (66ºC). And because it’s poured only 1-1/4″ to 1-1/2″ (32 mm to 35 mm) thick, the heating system is more responsive and more comfortable. As a “green” building material,… READ MORE
The concept of “radiant floor heating” or under-floor heating has been used for centuries. It can be traced back to the Romans who used a hypocaust, which was a system that heated homes with hot air under the floors. Under-floor radiant heating also has a long history throughout Asia.
Hydronic (liquid-based) radiant heating systems are the most popular systems we provide. They are ideal for large areas, entire homes and buildings, new construction, and snowmelt systems for outdoor use. These systems use little electricity, which is a benefit for homes in areas with high electricity prices or are off the power grid. Hydronic radiant heating works by running warm water through durable PEX or PERT tubing that is installed in the floor and is heated by a boiler, water heater, or additional ‘green’ options such as solar or geothermal solutions for increased energy savings. A boiler can run on… READ MORE
