wedi building boards are also ideally suited for use beneath underfloor heating systems. The building boards' good insulation properties keep the heat away from the ground and reflect it back up in to the room, irrespective of whether you have a hot-water heating system or an electrical design.
Step 1Draw ducts/grooves onto the wedi building board for installation of the heating system.
Step 2Cut grooves using the router. Cutting width should be the same as the pipe width; cutting depth should be at least 3 mm deeper.
Step 3Install tubing into the groove. Fill tile adhesive into the pipe duct.
Step 4Apply self-adhesive reinforcement tape 600mm onto the whole area.
Hot-water systemsFor hot-water systems, ducts can be cut into the building board and other wedi elements quickly and easily. The building board serves as a combined form of heat insulation and a base for installation.
Electrical underfloor heating systemElectrical underfloor heating systems are easy to mount on the building board and downward heat loss is prevented, making the heating system noticeably more effective.
On elements which have already been tiled and reinforced (e.g. wedi building boards, Fundo floor elements, Sanoasa benches, Sanoasa loungers), floor heating can be installed in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions. Only approved heating systems may be used.
