Underfloor heating uses low temperature constant flow to evenly distribute heat through the floor area of a building. This type of heating is called radiant. Using the emitter in such a way demands less from the heat source i.e. boiler, thus reducing energy consumption by up to 30%. Not only is our underfloor heating system more efficient but radiant heating is more comfortable than convection as the heat transfers to nearby objects. Warm feet, cool heads – this has always been our motto.
Forde provide the following systems to best suit the type of project. Each one is then refined to optimise the efficiency of that system and design.
Pex-a 17 @ 200mm centres BS EN 1264-4 DIN18560 part 7 Design A2 heated thin hard conductive screed system. The system is designed for new build and refurbishment of dwellings. Simplified controls direct to the heat source ASHP, Fossil-fuel Boilers. Standard EPS150 grade Insulation to meet Part L.
Pex-a 20 @ 200mm centres BS EN 1264-4 DIN18560 part 7 Design A2 heated thin hard conductive screed systems. The system is designed for new build and refurbishment of public buildings, schools, hospitals, offices etc. The system creates the maximum optimum response and recovery of the internal ambient air temperature required by the end user's heating and cooling demands.
Pex-a 20 @ 200mm centres BS EN 1264-4 DIN18560 part 7 Design A3 mid section heated C35 concrete 10 systems. The system is designed for heavy industrial application: Factories, manufacturing facilities, warehouse, Supermarkets etc. The system creates a steady state low heating base load including 30-35% cooling if required when used with an air source heat pump.
Where underfloor heating might be problematic due to construction constraints or finances, we offer in conjunction with our air source heat pump system high or low level fan coils. These units are ideal for when heating and cooling demand is paramount. Our fan coils come in a performance range of 1.6KW to 10KW - so they can be easily suited to the type and use of a building.
