Our pipe is a five layered polyethylene tube using PE-RT technology that is manufactured to our own specification and composed of five bonded layers. It contains an integral EVOH oxygen barrier layer to prevent oxygenation of water inside the system.
PE-RT stands for ‘polyethylene at raised temperature resistance’. Polyethylene has excellent properties at high pressures and temperatures as well as being very flexible and easy to use. It is non-corrosive and has very good resistance to frost. It is also creep-resistant and has a high impact strength. The outer layer protects the oxygen barrier from mechanical damage, moisture and other damaging materials.
A functionalised polythene that acts as an adhesive layer between the polyethylene and the oxygen barrier.
EVOH oxygen barrier
Made of ethanol vinyl alcohol that prevents oxygen diffusion. Oxygen diffusion is a very important factor within underfloor heating with the vast amount of pipework installed into the floors of every project, it is essential that the pipe has a very low level of oxygen permeability so that oxygen ingress cannot cause unnecessary damage and costs. A standard plastic pipe would not meet the required level of oxygen permeability.
Unlike PEX pipework which has toxins in it that can only be burnt or buried due to the molecular cross-linking process. Our PE-RT pipe is completely environmentally friendly and can be easily melted and recycled.

The design is unmistakably the most important part of any underfloor heating system. Our dedicated design team produces accurate and comprehensive drawings for every system that we install, maximising performance for all our systems, guaranteeing that we will supply the most cost effective and efficient solution for your project.
The control system provides a user interface with your heating system and can be as simple or as complex as your requirements.
Our pipe has a robust, 2mm, five layered polyethylene tube that uses the very latest PE-RT technology. The 2mm thick pipe wall is made up of five separate layers and contains an oxygen barrier to prevent the ingress of water from the pipe into the surrounding screed through condensation and to prevent oxidisation by stopping any ingress of oxygen into the pipe. It comes with a 75 year warranty.
The manifold distributes water from the heating source to the relevant zone. Manifolds will typically have a mixer valve to allow them to mix hot flow water with the cooler return to achieve the reduced temperatures required by underfloor heating.
Cabinets are supplied complete and finished in white enamel lacquer finish which does not require any further decoration.
