The Build It Awards (in conjunction with Build It Magazine) celebrate all aspects of self build and renovation including completed projects, products, services and suppliers. The awards bring together architects, manufacturers and key industry figures in recognition of innovation and excellence in the custom home sector.

Why Build It love this product:

“This system is ideal for home improvers.  It solves the problem of installing UFH in renovation properties and is quick and easy to fit – as well as being cost effective.”

The biggest challenge to installing underfloor heating in an existing building is often height build-up. In response, Nu-Heat developed LoPro10™, a floating floor with just 15mm height build up and excellent thermal properties that can be fitted on top of the existing floor deck.

LoPro10™ is a composite gypsum construction with one-third less thermal mass than a screed floor, allowing it to heat up and cool down rapidly – making it more economical for retrofit properties and giving quick response times. Its low thermal resistance and high mass (15,5kg/m2) provide a high thermal output and solid feel underfoot.

The judges commented that “Nu-Heat won the category because LoPro10™ met a real customer need with a truly innovative product design and solution.”

Nu-Heat has over 60 floor constructions available including screed, floating, joisted and retrofit solutions; demonstrating their Product Development teams’ innovative thinking around floor constructions.
