Tubing is tied above insulation to reinforcing mesh, rebar or attached to the insulation directly before the concrete slab is poured.
Poured Gypcrete Floor:
Tubing is installed over suspended wood floors and covered with a gypcrete (lightweight concrete) poured floor. This is the best way if you want your whole house with in-floor heating. Gypcrete is fire resistant, keeps out baseboard drafts, muffles sound transfer between floors, accepts all floor coverings even hardwood, eliminates squeaks in floor and is designed specifically for in-floor heating so the heat transfer and response time is at its best.
Between the Joists:
Tubing can be installed between the floor joists. This is perfect for heating sections of the upper floors of your new home, remodeling projects and additions. Tubing is suspended and the airspace between the floor and bubble foil insulation is heated to provide even heat.
Uponor Quik Trak:
Tubing is placed over the sub floor and is only 1/2” thick. The tubing rests in heat transfer plates, which are in grooved plywood. This is an alternative to between the floor joists and is excellent for remodeling projects or additions. This can also be placed under granite countertops or in walls such as in showers outside walls with large windows.
