Retro 18 – Low Profile Overlay System
An ultra low profile fibre board the same height as a 5p coin (18mm). These panels are engineered gypsum with a 60% recycled content board which is. This gives a strong and quickly-installed dry screed system.
The overlay boards are to be laid onto a flat surface, they can either be screwed or glued to the surface beneath (Screws / adhesive not supplied).
This system can be installed over any existing concrete or wooden floor, this is generally installed over a 6mm Superfoil insulation giving the overall build up of 24mm.
The boards are pre-grooved and pipes are laid directly into the channels. The boards have a high thermal conductivity so heating response times are quicker and energy use is reduced.
Any floor can be laid over the system, including carpet, vinyl and linoleum. Laminates, real wood and engineered floors can be fitted as a “floating floor” directly over the panel.
Our Retro18 kit provides temperature control of underfloor heating circuits using thermostatic blending valve with circulating pump.
All our kits include an easy-fit pre-assembled manifold with pump and blending valve.
- Stainless Steel Manifold
- Easy fit manifold control pack with Grundfos A rated pump
- High limit safety sensor
- Air vents
- Fill & drain points
- Isolation valves
- 12mm Pert Underfloor heating pipe (Enough to lay pipes at 150mm c/c)
- 18mm Pre grooved Retro18 boards
- Nail clips
Actuators are only required if you need to control zones separately, 1 per port would be required.
Please note wireless thermostats (Slimline RF & NeoAir) will need a wireless wiring centre (UH8-RF) and for all Neo controls to be controlled via app you will need to purchase a Neo Hub.
Kits are to cover a maximum area of the floor area chosen.
