Low profile screed system

The low profile screed system is a way of installing underfloor heating in to new solid/screeded floors. It is best suited to refurbishment projects where an increase in the floor build up is at a premium. This system uses lightweight moulded plastic panels to hold the pipe in place before screed is poured on top.

As with the red floor panel system, the low profile panels facilitate the pipework being laid in the optimum spiral configuration and provide a degree of protection for the pipe against other tradespeople working on site. The low profile screed system allows for a lower finished floor height to be achieved because it can be utilised with screed depths from 35mm, whereas the recommended level of screed for red floor panels is 65mm. Remember to always check your screed manufacturer’s installation advice.
