Ideal Application for Underfloor Heating

The apartment floors are being installed with under floor heating, with Cellecta’s HiDECK 18 being installed as the floor overlay system. HiDECK 18 is ideal for this application as its low thermal resistance (0.045/m2/kW) and rapid heat transfer characteristics allow under floor heating systems to work at their most efficient. Rapid heat transfer also allows occupants to enjoy the benefits of under floor heating as and when they need it, ideal for cold winter mornings or returning from work. The HiDECK system features a tongue and groove edge detail that doesn’t require screws making it quick and easy to install.
