Learn how to retrofit an Uponor Minitec Underfloor Heating System
Quick installation and fast heating time
Designed as a retrofit solution, the main advantage of Uponor Minitec is its low installation height. In fact, it contains the lowest build height on the market- 15mm
With no over boarding required, a variety of different floor coverings can be applied on top of it – depending on the customer’s individual requirements. Therefore, Uponor Minitec brings excellent living comfort even to renovated houses.
The sturdy Uponor Minitec panel containing PE-Xa pipes 9.9 x 1.1 mm can be walked on after three hours, following the application of an approved leveling compound (screed, timber and tiles). At Uponor we partner with a wide range of screeding companies including Bostik, Knauf and Weber and many many more. Please see below for a full list of screeding partners. What's more, the panels are equipped with punched holes in between the castellations, which ensures, that the levelling compound can spread easily and bonds firmly with the substructure.
The efficient installation of the Uponor PE-Xa pipes can be carried out by a single technician. They are suitable for all room geometries and do not need to be installed right to the edge of the floor. What's more, the system includes all the components required for fitting in doorways and to adjoining walls.
