From a structural standpoint, the Warmboard hydronic radiant floor heating design is ideal. In new construction, Warmboard-S installs directly over slab or joist, while in remodels, Warmboard-R typically installs over existing subfloor, slab or in the walls or ceiling. The in-floor heat tubing layout is automatically created, and the plans we provide show you exactly how everything goes together, from panel and tubing layouts to manifold locations. The 12-inch tubing spacing in our radiant panels means fewer components and a less complex control system.
Radiant Floor Design
Increase Your Flooring Options
While radiant floor heat design and installation benefits reward architects and builders, homeowners have the most to gain. Warmboard’s superior conductivity combined with low water temperatures means even floor temperatures, and that means more flooring options. With the Warmboard radiant floor design, anything is possible — from thick wool carpets to ornate tile and marble to wide-plank hardwood.
In fact, many hardwood companies recommend only Warmboard for radiant floor heating design because there’s no concern about damaging their flooring products. If you are considering ornate hardwood detailing like herringbone or chevron patterns, only Warmboard provides the ideal installation surface. Many flooring professionals refuse to install such floors over other radiant systems. Typical hardwood installs are generally more costly with other systems.
