Underfloor heating is an invisible and silent method of improving our level of thermal comfort. Thermal comfort can be described as the point at which the human body feels at ease and comfortable with the surrounding environment.
There are many factors that influence the way people feel the temperature, such as direct sunshine, humidity, draught and how evenly the temperature is distributed. With underfloor radiant heating the feeling of thermal comfort can be increased, as the temperature is stable and there is no draught. As well as benefiting from increased comfort and reduced running costs installing a Uponor underfloor heating solution adds to the safety, attractiveness and value of the house itself.
Uponor are the innovators in radiant heating and offer solutions with all-plastic and with composite multi-layer pipes that add living comfort and also the value of the house itself. Our offering also includes heat pumps and systems specially designed for renovation.
With Uponor, you no longer have to decide between metal and plastic, because the Uponor multi-layer composite pipe generation combines all the benefits of plastic and metal pipes. This ensures state of the art products and quality, high degree of flexibility and endurance, coupled with high pressure and temperature stability. For plumbing, heating/cooling or radiant temperature control - there's nothing like Uponor for smart installation.
MLC pipe structure Uponor multi-layer composite pipe consists of an overlapped, longitudinally welded aluminium pipe with an inner and outer layer of high temperature-resistant polyethylene. All layers are permanently bonded together by intermediate adhesive layers. A special welding technique ensures high reliability. The aluminium thickness for Uponor has been specially selected to meet compressive and flexural strength requirements.
With Uponor's five-layer composite pipe, they have developed an advanced product that unites the advantages of a metal and plastic pipe and eliminates the disadvantages of both materials at the same time. This offers product advantages that are second to none: The aluminium core is absolutely diffusion tight; it reliably prevents the ingress of oxygen. It compensates and reduces snap-back forces and heat expansion with changes of temperature. The system is designed for easy, safe and fast pipe installations; simply bend, cut to length, bevel, join and press - that's all!

REHAU Underfloor Heating works by circulation warm water through a network of pipes which have been laid in the floors. The pipes are made from smooth lined PE-Xa, cross linked polyethylene, with an expected life of well over one hundred years. The whole floor area acts as a heating element, the water temperature circulating in the system can be kept much lower, ideal for the latest high efficiency condensing boilers, which give maximum savings from low return water temperatures.
REHAU RAUTHERM universal pipe is made from Cross Linked Polyethylene, with a co-extruded EVAL oxygen diffusion barrier.
Cross-linking is the process of linking molecules in the polyethylene, giving much improved physical properties. REHAU was one of the pioneers of this process.
