PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Durabella Westbourne Cradle and Westbourne Batten systems are completely compatible with both Water based and Electric cable under floor heating systems. The systems have been used with most European heating system manufacturers and it is likely that standard DWG &PDF detailed sections can be provided for any which are not immediately available.

The efficiency of any of the under floor heating systems will be affected by the positioning of the heating pipes or wires and should normally be as close to the underside of the structural board as is physically possible. In general the more mass in the system above the heating elements the slower  the heating will take to respond to the room thermostat. It is always prudent to have a thermostat censor in the subfloor and the system should ideally be set to ensure the sub floor temperature does not exceed 27˚C.

It is unlikely that any system in an occupied property would reach this temperature as it would require the heating at maximum and on constant and would be uncomfortable to occupy. It has however been achieved on new build following full commissioning of heating systems. If this temperature is exceeded the system components will effectively start to bake. This is more likely to be an issue with low level systems with voids below 35mm. It is also important to ensure that all the insulations incorporated in the systems are properly installed to ensure the heat generated is directed to the room floor and not the sub floor.

On completion of any under floor heating system the temperature should be increased over several days to the desired maximum limit to ensure the stability of sub floor components and any other new building material in the vicinity. Always differ to the heating system manufacturers recommendations and if you are unsure of how to incorporate it into the Durabella system contact our technical department who will be able to assist.
