Powerful, efficient systems you can use anywhere

Water underfloor heating systems, often called wet systems, are very versatile. From a single kitchen to a whole hotel, if you’re looking for great efficiency, they’re the best choice. They can be tuned to give out exactly the heat each room needs and no more, creating comfortable warmth and cutting energy bills.

To get the best results, you’ll need to choose the right type of water underfloor heating system for your particular needs.

Screed underfloor heating systems

There’s no doubt about it, screed systems give you the best possible output. They’re also the cheapest option and the most efficient. The drawback is, they need space. Typically, they need around 200mm because they rely on heating a thermal mass. There are three different screed systems to choose from:

  • Staples: the cheapest way to lay this kind of system on a budget.
  • Clip rails: easier, faster installation, great for big, open rooms.
  • Castellation mats: the most expensive screed option, but the fastest. They’re also ideal if you’re laying a water system on a solid concrete floor without installation.

Low-profile underfloor heating systems

These are great when you’re retrofitting underfloor heating or working with low ceiling heights. They’re also perfect when you’re fitting a water system upstairs because they only need 18mm of space. Plus, they’re easy to install, even if you’re doing the job on your own. Adding our Snug Support low-profile ends makes installation much faster and easier too.

Suspended floor underfloor heating systems

These systems are designed specifically for upper floors and there are two main options to choose from:

  • Suspended heat plates: fit neatly between standard 400mm joists and are easy to install.
  • Fit-from-below heat plates: ideal if you’re renovating downstairs and want to add underfloor heating upstairs without lifting the floor. They fit neatly between any size of joist and is quick and easy to install.
