Retrofit floor constructions

Nu-Heat's LoPro® range offers the very best low profile UFH solutions, suitable for a wide range of projects including renovations, extensions, loft conversions and bathrooms.

The LoPro® range includes two low profile retrofit solutions, LoPro®10 and new LoPro®Max. Both systems have been specifically designed for ease of install in any existing property.

Slim and simple – LoPro®10

LoPro®10 uses pre-routed gypsum boards that are laid over the existing floor to hold the heating tube in place. As a mainly dry solution, floor coverings can be fitted immediately, making for an extremely quick and simple installation process.

The enhanced thermal properties of LoPro®10 make it suitable for use with gas, oil and LPG condensing boilers and with a total height build-up of just 15mm, it is an ideal solution for a wide range of renovation projects.

Impressive performance – LoPro®Max

LoPro®Max is the latest innovation in retrofit UFH offering heat outputs 50% higher than other solutions on the market.

A wet solution, the system uses a robust castellated panel to hold the heating tube in place before being covered by a specialist self-levelling compound, LoPro®QuickSet. This highly conductive compound provides a perfectly level surface which is dry after eight hours.

The simple installation and impressive heat output makes LoPro®Max particularly suitable for properties with lower levels of insulation or large amounts of glazing.

The ultimate DIY solution – LoPro®Lite

LoPro®Lite is low-profile, versatile and easy-to-fit, making it the ideal option for DIY installation. A completely dry underfloor heating system for whole properties or single zones, there is no waiting for screed to dry and floor coverings can be fitted immediately.

Consisting of lightweight yet super-strong, pre-routed EPS boards, into which diffuser plates and fitted and the tube is laid, LoPro®Lite has a total height build-up of just 15mm before the floor deck.

LoPro®Lite
Lightweight, versatile and easy to fit, LoPro®Lite is the ultimate DIY underfloor heating system

LoPro®Lite consists of pre-routed, high-density EPS (expanded polystyrene) boards which have an excellent point-load strength, and add just 15mm (the height of a 5p coin) to the existing floor level before the floor deck. Diffuser plates sit in the straight sections of the boards to enhance heat distribution from the 10mm FastFlo® tube, and a deck is laid over the top of the panels and UFH tube before floor coverings are fitted.
