Designed to suit joisted floor buildups, this suspended underfloor heating system can also be easily adapted to suit sprung sports floors, acoustic battened floors and over-battened floors.
Combining contemporary heating technology with traditional timber floors, the AmbiPlate 30 system is designed specifically for joisted floor constructions. Before the underfloor heating system is installed, mineral wool/fibre insulation, typically a minimum of 100mm, should be laid between the joists. Rigid insulation can also be used to achieve better thermal values but in all cases it is essential that the insulation is installed as close to the underside of the pipework as possible to maximise heating output.
Following on from this, the aluminium plates, which are manufactured and grooved in accordance with the project design, are installed on to the joists. The aluminium plates can only be laid on straight pipe runs and typically cover about 80% of the heated floor area. The pipework is then installed into the diffuser plates as per the installation drawings.
The installation is completed at the manifold assembly (as shown on the right). The system is then pressure tested to 4 bar, witnessed by a site agent and signed off. Controls and pumps (if required from WMS) are then supplied as loose items for others to install. A drawing will be issued after the installation for the client’s records.

Pipe is clipped into the AmbiPlate 20 metal plate which is supported by timber battens over a sub-base of concrete or chipboard.
In AmbiPlate 30 the metal plate is fixed to the tops of timber joists over a layer of mineral wool or rigid insulation board.
