Radiant heating/cooling mat
Finalist in HVAC/R in Consulting-Specifying Engineer's 2011 Product of the Year competition
The Uponor Radiant Rollout Mat is a prefabricated, prepressurized network of cross-linked polyethylene (PEX-a) tubing designed for installations of large commercial radiant heating and cooling applications. The mat consists of Wirsbo hePEX (oxygen barrier) or Uponor AquaPEX (nonbarrier) PEX—a tubing connected with ProPEX engineered plastic (EP) fittings, which are safe for burial in the slab and offer fast on-site customization. With the radiant rollout mat, workers simply roll out tubing and fasten it down. A double-mat option is available, and the product uses acetal polymer support braces every 7 ft and predrilled holes for stake and anchor supports.
