High Density EPS400 Overlay Floor Panel
Suitable for laminate, engineered wood, carpet, vinyl and tiles, the EPS overfloor panel offers an easy way to install underfloor heating into your home without having to dig up the floor. The panels are laid directly onto the existing concrete, floorboards or solid flooring and are a perfect choice for retrofit installations. With a minimal height increase of just 20mm and a high compressive strength of 400KPA they are lightweight, simple to fit and can be installed with only basic tools.
The 20mm panels uses a 16mm pipe at 150mm pipe spacings. Each panel is pre-formed with turns and return runs and covered by a 200 micron (0.2mm) aluminium layer. This allows the heat to spread quickly & evenly across the underside of your flooring for fast warm up times and to maximise the output and efficiency of the system. The panels can be laid onto any existing, level flooring and should be fixed securely using adhesives.
EPS panels are made from high compressive strength Expanded PolyStyrene (EPS). EPS400 is the strongest density available today and can be used with all floor coverings.
Advice for different floor coverings:
Laminate and engineered wood
Lay flooring directly onto the EPS floor panel as a floating floor. If no underlay is pre-bonded to the underside of the wood, lay a 3mm breathable underlay first. Do not exceed 25mm board depth.
Carpet or vinyl
Prime the surface of the EPS board using Mapei Eco Prim Grip, then a cover with a 5mm self levelling screed- recommend Mapei Ultraplan or similar fibre reinforced screeds. This ensures the pipe grooves are covered to give a smooth finish for the flooring to go onto. Carpet & underlay combined should not exceed 2tog.
Prime the board surface using Mapei Eco Prim Grip, then cover with a 5mm self levelling screed. Tile directly onto the screed using Ultra ProFlex S2 Flexible Tile Adhesive. Ensure to use a highly deformable flexible S2 tile adhesive!
Maximum pipe length:
- 20mm panel = 100m
**Due to fragility in transit a minimum order of 10 boards is required**
