The most popular UFH systems for first floors
We have several systems that are suitable for first floor installation. Whether you’re looking for easy to install products for a newbuild or a low profile system to level up your renovation project, we have plenty of options to provide you with underfloor heating upstairs.
Watch our video below to find out more about our most popular systems for first floor underfloor heating.
ClippaPlate® is a flexible first floor underfloor heating system that is both simple and safe to install in suspended timber floors. Because the heating tube is completely hidden within the ceiling/floor deck, there is no height build-up whatsoever.
How is ClippaPlate® installed?
ClippaPlate® offers a dry installation, using patented aluminum heat spreader plates to hold the heating tube flush with the floor. The plates can be installed in two ways:
- From below, in between the floor joists. The above picture shows this example. This is safe for the installer and also means that other trades can continue with work on upper floors.
- From above, straddling the joists. This is a good option in a renovation scenario when ceilings may remain intact.
Nu-Deck® is a structural underfloor heating solution designed to work in any suspended timber floor scenario. Strength tested up to 600mm joist centres for simple and versatile installation, Nu-Deck® provides ultimate heating performance and complete structural integrity.
How is Nu-Deck® installed?
Nu-Deck® installation is completely dry. The moisture resistant foil faced boards are laid across joists to make up the structural floor deck, before pipework is fitted in the pre-routed pipe channels and the cover board is fixed down to complete the installation.
As Nu-Deck® is a structural UFH solution, meaning the floor deck and heating system are combined, there is only 6mm of additional height build up.
LoPro®Lite is a great option for upstairs thanks to being both lightweight and strong. Unlike ClippaPlate®, LoPro®Lite sits on top of the floor deck, making it a good choice for renovation projects. As part of Nu-Heat’s LoPro® range, the system is low profile at just 15mm.
How is LoPro®Lite installed?
LoPro®Lite uses pre-routed boards that are made of high-density EPS (expanded polystyrene), castellated panels to help guide the tube back to the manifold and heat diffuser plates.
The system is fitted on top of the existing floor deck and is completely dry, without the need for any wet compound or screed.
