UNDERFLOOR HEATING PANELS
KAY-CEL under floor heating panel is manufactured by Kay-Metzeler Ltd., one of the country’s leading suppliers of Expanded Polystyrene Products, and is supplied in varying grades, types and sizes.
The insulation board is manufactured from Expanded Polystyrene (EPS), and laminated to a highly resistant, fibre woven film. This film acts as the protection layer for the product.
The EPS is manufactured and tested in accordance with European Standards, contains no CFC’s or HCFC’s, and is totally recyclable. A 50mm Grid Pattern is printed onto the film, which assists the installer to lay the under floor heating pipes in the correct positions. The pipe is positioned in place, then fixed to the insulation using a "U" clip. The laminate film covering the EPS board, is specially designed to hold the "U" clip in place, and ensures the under floor heating pipe is held tightly in position. The film covering on the insulation overhangs the board by 50mm, enabling overlaps to be taped to form a continuous seamless surface.
