Aiming to make underfloor heating installation faster and easier, Polypipe Building Products has introduced its Overlay Plus system, which is eight times lighter than the standard gypsum board currently used (1.2kg vs 10kg per board).
Apart from the low weight of the product, installation is also made easier as there is no need for any power tools – a Stanley knife is enough to cut the flooring to shape. This means less dust and mess produced during installation, and tiles can be fitted directly on top of the Overlay Plus boards. The boards are also larger in area and include an insulation core and aluminium lining.
Overlay Plus can be used on new-builds, refurbishments or extensions and is designed to give a robust and reliable finish.
Underfloor heating product manager Giles Coombes says: “Polypipe is continually striving to overcome the issues faced by installers and, with this market-leading innovation, we believe we have done it again.
“This new technology means that underfloor heating can be fitted more easily, less expensively and much faster. This will be a boon for installers and reduce installation time to keep customers happy.”
