The PUG / dry mix - Uses readily available and familiar materials, making it a simple and cost-effective method of maximising the heat output.
The system is installed from above, and can either be laid within the floor construction, or between battens above an existing floor where height permits.
An 8:1 dry PUG sand and cement mix is laid around the pipes which provides good surface contact and thermal storage. The pipes can be run at centres to suit the joists or battens, giving you a simple and versatile installation.
Depending on the available build height, the system can incorporate insulation directly below the pipe system or below the deck, allowing for the design and performance requirements of the building. The pipes can be clipped using Continal® staples or Continal® P-clips.
