Modular Heating Panels* are an exciting new product concept from Polypipe that enable quick and simple installation of underfloor heating into suspended floors in both new build and renovation projects.
Installing underfloor heating into upper floors can be challenging, even in new build projects. Most conventional underfloor heating systems comprise a single section of pipe, housed or placed within another part of the system structure, such as floor panels, which are cut to size on site. This works fine as there are no interruptions to the laying of the pipe.
In suspended floor installations however, the pipe, plates and insulation have to fit within an obvious obstruction: the supporting floor joists. It is working around the joists, and avoiding other services, that has often led to underfloor heating being avoided in upper floors
As the name suggests, a Modular Heating Panel (MHP) is a pre-configured solution, where all of the floor heating system components are supplied fitted within complete panels, which are simply fitted and connected together on site.
Thanks to MHP it is now possible to fit panels quickly into the existing joist voids and connect them to a standard heat source. MHP works with both traditional and engineered joists and can be fitted from above or below.
