Installation Options

Solid / In-Screed Floor Systems (Staple, Clip Rail, or Plate)

For new build properties or complete renovations. Premium floor plate clipping system ensures uniform pipe centres and speed of installation.

Pipe installed in a spiral configuration ensures the minimum pipe bending radius is achieved.

Overlay Low Profile Retro Fit (Traditional / Heavy Duty)

18mm low profile panel / 12mm pipe that fits over an existing floor – ideal for renovation / single room / full house refurbishment / new build projects.

The structural nature of this product make it ideal for tiling or floor finished that need to be fixed to the panel itself.

Suspended / In-Joist Floor Systems (DHSP)

Aluminium double heat spreader plates between joist system designed to ensure an even spread of heat across a finished floor surface – no floor build up / insulate below to ensure no downward heat loss.

Also available in a fit from below panel system.

The underfloor heating can be flexible to your requirement. We can offer advice on the most suitable system for you and also the range of hard wired, radio frequency and smart plus premium room thermostat ranges.

Polypipe UFH is suitable with the following flooring:


The nature and thickness of your chosen carpet are fundamental to the impact of your underfloor heating. The underlay should have low thermal resistance. Felt underlay is not advised as it may block the heat making it inefficient. Your carpets should ideally be hessian backed to enhance the performance of your Polypipe heating system. The temperature of your floor should never exceed 27°C. Typically the carpet and under­lay should not have a combined tog rating in excess of 2.5.

Stone & Tiles

Natural stone is a perfect accompaniment to underfloor heating. Stone, reconstituted stone flags, marble and slate are all suitable. Their high thermal mass makes them excellent conductors. Ceramic, terracotta and porcelain tiles are also compatible with UFH. Just like stone, they hold excellent thermal properties. Tiles need to be laid with a high-quality flexible tile adhesive and grout. In many cases, an uncoupling membrane needs to be used to allow for movement.


Solid wood, engineered wood and laminate can also be used with Polypipe underfloor heating. Using dense wood will provide you with the best thermal conductivity. However, it is important to take care when choosing wooden flooring as softwood may block the heat rather than transferring it. We would recommend your wooden flooring to be no thicker than 18mm.


Vinyl flooring can be sensitive to long-term exposure to heat. However, our wet Polypipe UFH is compatible with Vinyl. We would recommend that the floor temperature does not exceed 27°C

We also offer options for refurbishment and retrofit systems via the Overlay / Overlay LITE applications. These systems are particularly useful for projects with limited floor heights or where traditional UFH systems would require expansive excavation.

Most systems are compatible with heat sources to include standard gas and oil boilers, plus lower temperature heat sources such as air source and ground source heat pumps.
