Heat home using Flooré’s Underfloor heating!

Our aim is to offer you the best possible underfloor heating solution

Investing in underfloor heating is a clever choice for many reasons. Water underfloor heating is flexible, economical, comfortable and safe. The flexibility lies in that you can connect the system to whichever heat source you have.

Above all, it gives you a pleasant thermal experience. Since the heat is supplied close to the flooring surface, the room is heated from the floors and upwards, making the heating process effective and efficient. We are happiest when our feet are warmer than our heads!

Without any radiators in the way, you can furnish the room just as you wish.

Underfloor heating made easy!

Flooré’s thinnest underfloor heating panel means that the floor level need not be raised more than 13 mm. Because of this low extra height, the panels can be used in new buildings and also for renovation purposes.

Flooré panels can be installed over most existing floors without any need to dig up the old floor. There is no need for expensive and time consuming screeds. You can even set your new floor on top of the old one!

The Flooré underfloor heating panel is a patented Swedish product. It is a predecessor to another type which was developed in a project together with the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH, Stockholm) back in 1991. We can proudly say that Flooré has a long experience with underfloor heating system.

All in one-panel

Consist of a panels with straight and return channel in the same panel. This makes it very easy with installation, sales and stock keeping.

New channels momentarily

To use the return channels you just need to cut the foil in the U-turns that will be used. Press the foil into the channels using the back of the knife. It´s very easy to cut new channels locally by using a craft knife or electric router.

Cutting the panels

It is very easy to cut the panels to suitable length. All you need is a straight ruler and a Stanley knife (craft knife).

Ceramic tiles directly onto the system

For over 20 years ceramic tiles has been laid directly onto Flooré panels! This is unique and works perfect as long as you use products that has been tested and approved with Flooré panels. For bathrooms where you shower directly onto the floor, screed and moisture barrier have to be applied above the panel prior to setting the tiles.

Flooring material

Flooré panels can be used underneath all types of flooring material. Wood, parquet or laminate can be set floating.

Patented panels

The concept is based on thin panels made of high density polystyrene covered with aluminium foil. This design makes it possible to lay the flooring material directly on top of the panels. The panels emit heat more quickly and efficiently than traditional embedded systems because the distance between the pipe and floor surface is shorter and have lower thermal mass.

Customized solutions

Our flexible and fully automated production enables us to produce many different types of  panels. We can easily change raw materials, distance between pipes and pipe dimension.  The products can be customized exactly as our OEM-customer requires.

Pipe dimensions

The panels can be used for PEX, PE-RT or Multilayer pipes, our standard production is for  12, 16 and 20 mm pipes. If there is a request we are always willing to see if it is possible to customize a product to meet the demand.

Superior design software

HK HeatSource Ltd offers design services using a superior design software developed by FLOORÈ. It is highly recommended that any and all underfloor heating systems be properly designed and calculated in order to optimize flow volumes and temperatures in accordance with each property’s characteristics and energy demands. Great savings can be achieved if the the flow rate and temperatures are correctly defined.

The floor UNDERNEATH the heated floor

Flooré underfloor heating can be laid on all types of surface.
The only requirement is that the surface is plane, stable and load-bearing.

The floor ABOVE the heated floor

Flooré underfloor heating can be used underneath all types of flooring materials. Wood, parquet or laminate can be set floating. Stone and ceramic tile floors can be bonded directly onto the panels. The tile size must be at least 15×15 cm. In bathrooms where you shower directly on the floor, a thin layer of screed should be applied onto the panel before installing the surface material.

Flooré panel – for the lowest building height

THIS PANEL IS BEST SUITED FOR:

  • Floors that already have sufficient thermal insulation
  • Floors that do not need substantial thermal insulation, e.g. intermediate suspended floors above heated rooms
  • Rooms where the height of the room cannot be reduced

Flooré panel – with additional insulation

THIS PANEL IS BEST SUITED FOR:

  • Floors that have none or insufficient thermal insulation
  • Suspended floors where the room or space underneath is unheated
  • Minimizing downward heat losses
  • Slab on ground constructions, e.g. basement floors

Ceiling Installation

General information

Flooré panel is very simple to mount and adapt to different ceiling building techniques. It can be screwed or glued to the substrate. The system has a big advantage since it will be installed like an ordinary underfloor heating system without any expensive and time consuming fitting works.
How to best design the installation depends on which ceiling finish and substrate conditions that is best used in the building. Commonly a plasterboard are used as a ceiling finish and then distance between steel profiles, wooden beams or support battens are chosen according to the recommendation from the plasterboard supplier.

Installation on steel profiles or wooden beams

Distances between profiles are designed so that it fits with the length of Flooré panels and an extra line of profile is installed under the U-turns. Drawing examples can be given depending on which panel is used.

Installation Instructions

Can I place underfloor heating panels wherever I want in my house?

Yes, in bedrooms, bathrooms, in the kitchen and in hallways. It works well in any room. However, if thermal insulation of the building envelope that encloses the room is poor, in a conservatory for example, an additional heater may be needed.

Why should I choose warm water and not electric underfloor heating?

Warm water heating has a longer service life and is suitable for all heat sources. Today and in the future, the heat source can be selected on the basis of energy price and environmental impact.

Can the pipe start leaking?

No. After installing the pipe, a pressurization test should be performed to check if any damages have been caused during the installation. After that, you can then feel confident since the pipes have in accelerated tests proved to last well over 50 years.

How are Flooré panels fitted?

Normally, these are bonded to the subfloor with an adhesive. Screws or staples work if a floating flooring material is going to be used as top surface.

Can I really set tiles directly onto panels?

Yes, but you need to use products from suppliers that have approved the combination of their products and the Flooré panels, such as Mapei, Alfix, Kiilto, Casco, Weber or Schönox, and follow their instructions. In wet rooms, screed and a moisture barrier have to be applied above the panel prior to setting the tiles. However, when planning the use of tiles, it is always important that the substrate is stable and firm, so sagging suspended floors with wood beams may require stabilization.

Do I need a pump and mixing unit?

In most cases, a pump and mixing unit is needed when underfloor heating is to be used in combination with radiators. This unit lowers the temperature of the water in the pipes to a convenient level and sees to that the flow is sufficient. In buildings that do not have radiators, no extra pump and mixing unit is required since the convenient settings can be accomplished at the heat source.
