Radiant floor aluminum plates
Heat Transfer Plates are used in so called “staple up systems” where the floor is warmed by placing heating tubes underneath the floor.
Aluminum material wraps around the heating tube and then spreads out and attaches to the under side of the heated floor.
Radiant floor aluminum plates perform three important functions.
They help to carry heat away from the tubing and distribute it through the joist space and along the floor. (Heat transfer)
They support the plastic heat exchanger tubing.
They greatly reduce heat loss in the downward direction (backloss).
