new hydronic radiant floor heating kit - thoughts on.
 
hello, i've got a new product that i've found and im wondering if anyone has had good experience with it.

its the infloorboard from warmzone radiant heating manufacturers.

http://www.warmzone.com/hydronic-rad...oor-heatin.asp

the idea is that the pex tube goes into precut channels in MDF and OSB boards that have a thin topping of aluminum for conductivity. seems like a really good idea, rather then messing about with staples, gypsy-crete etc...

this product does not act as a subfloor and therefore i would need a barrier between it and the motar for tile. any suggestions?

thanks,
d

thanks! that's pretty much what i was after... i tried searching but i guess i was looking in the wrong spot.

how did your project work out? did the infloorboard make the install easier? did you go with their entire product line (plumbing hookups and all) or jsut the infloorboard?

I am only now getting to that stage in this project, so I am not the person to ask. Sorry. The designer is reviewing the floor layout and has some concern about getting enough transfer through the available floor space. Any space under cabinets are out of bounds for in floor heat and I have plenty of cabinetry in the rooms where I planned to use it. He is thinking I may have to use 1/2 tubing and transfer plates to get enough BTUs into the space.
