Uponor Announces Two Radiant Floor Products
Uponor has announced the introduction of two new products intended to meet the needs of the hysronic radiant heating market: Radiant Ready 30E and Fast Talk.
Ideal for remodeling and retroft projects, the Radiant Ready 30E is a complete radiant mechanical room designed in a compact, preassembled, easy-to-install panel. The installer simply hangs the panel on a wall and connects the tubing, thermostat and electrical power. To accompany the panel, Fast Trak knobbed mats provide a faster, easier method for installing crosslinked polyethylene (PEX) tubing in overpour applications for basements, recreation rooms, bathrooms or any area of a home.
The Radiant Ready 30E includes a 30,000 BTU/h electric boiler, an Uponor Engineered Plastic (EP) Heating Manifold, a pump, expansion tank, pressure-relief valve, isolation valves, thermostat and air vent — all preassembled and prewired into the unit. The Radiant Ready 30E is designed to cover up to 2,000 square feet of radiant floor heating (based on 15 BTU/h/sq. ft.) and 4,000 square feet of radiant floor warming (based on 7.5 BTU/h/sq. ft.). It comes standard with a five-loop manifold which can be customized to add additional loops if necessary (up to 8 fit inside the unit). The complete package also includes an Uponor Heat-only Thermostat, an Outdoor Temperature Sensor, fastening hardware and additional accessories.
Fast Trak products are available in two models: Fast Trak 0.5 and Fast Trak 1.3i. Fast Trak 0.5 is only ½" thick, eliminating the need to alter baseboards, moldings or doors. The product is made for 5/16" PEX tubing and features an adhesive backing for easy installation to a slab or subfloor. Fast Trak 1.3i is 1¼" thick. It holds 3/8" or ½" PEX tubing and includes insulation already in the mat, eliminating the added time and cost of installing insulation under the tubing.
