Polypipe pilots its newest low-profile underfloor heating offering

Polypipe have piloted 150m2 of its newest retrofit low-profile underfloor heating system in a 20-year-old home renovation.

Phil Poulter was looking for an effective heating system for the renovation of his 20-year-old home, ensuring he could maximise the living space, both upstairs and down.

Underfloor Heating Product Manager Giles Coombes approached Phil about piloting our newest Overlay® Plus in his renovation project. The installer was asked if he would be interested in being the first to fit the Polypipe Overlay® Plus system, to which he jumped at the opportunity.

  • New Overlay® Plus
  • Ultra-Flexible UFH Pipe
  • Auto-Balancing Manifold
  • Smart Plus Controls
  • End Returns
  • Polypipe Self-Levelling Compound

The new low-profile system boasts a lightweight construction, weighing in at a total of 1.2kg per board allowing the installer to effortlessly carry four boards at a time up to the 1st level of the house with ease, compared to the traditional heavier Overlay® which weighed 10kg per board.

The boards are designed to be used in both high and low traffic areas, meaning the system could be utilised throughout the entire house. Due to the ease of use of the new system the installer could complete the entire house project in less than a week.

“The new boards are going to save us a significant amount of time and effort on jobs moving forward. The lightweight nature means we can carry several boards at a time which is particularly helpful on large or multi-storey projects – and as a bonus, we can tile directly on top of it.”
– The installer
