wedi Building Panels are ideally suited for use beneath floor and even wall warming systems. The building panels’ good insulation properties keep the heat away from the ground and reflect it back up in to the room, regardless of whether you have a hot-water heating system or an electric system. wedi Building Panels save energy and provide shorter warm up times around your heating system. The warmth is evenly distributed across the entire floor.
Step 1Draw ducts / grooves onto the wedi Building Panel for installation of the heating system.
Step 2Cut grooves using a router. Cutting width should be the same as the pipe width; cutting depth should be at least 1/8” deeper. Make sure at minimum a remaining wedi panel foam thickness of 1/4" remains intact below the pipe.
Step 3Install tubing into the groove. Fill tile adhesive into the pipe duct to cover pipe and fill voids.
Step 4Apply wedi’s wide self adhesive reinforcement tape over the installed ducts. Start tiling. Tiles smaller than 4" x 4" should not be used over hydronic system installation surfaces.
Hot-water systemsFor hot-water systems, ducts can be cut into the building panel and other wedi elements quickly and easily.
Hot-water systemsThe building panel serves as a combined form of heat insulation and a base for installation of tile and serves as waterproofing protection if needed.
