Polypipe 12mm x 50m Coil Ultra Flex Underfloor Pipe UFH5012B for underfloor heating use only EN15876.
Easier to install than standard polybutylene, Ultraflex has been designed to give plumbers and underfloor heating installers greater flexibility.
This 15mm ultra flex pipe is a solution specific pipe that is ONLY suitable for use in underfloor heating applications.
If your underfloor installation uses polyplumb underfloor panels the pipe can be installed at the pre-designed centres. The pipe is easily installed by taking pipe from the outside of the coil and unrolling the pipe in the direction that the pipe is being laid.
The floor panels ensure that pipe is laid at a pre-determined spacing and the correct bend radius is maintained. The minimum bend radius is ensured by encircling two castellations for a 90° bend or three castellations for a 180° bend.
Polybutylene is the most malleable plastic used in the manufacture of piping systems – its natural flexibility allows installers to bend the pipe into even the tightest of spaces. It is also extremely light, particularly when compared with traditional copper piping systems. It has good resistance to freezing and has a reputation for long-term durability in heating and water applications. These features make it ideal for under floor heating applications
Together with the pipe’s excellent elasticity, means that if water in a the underfloor system is subjected to freezing temperatures, a burst pipe is far less likely.
To avoid damage to the pipe, pecial consideration should be given to protecting the underfloor heating pipe when stored in temperatures below -100C as .
Where possible protect the pipe from any UV exposure
Ideally it is best to store the pipe indoors and in its original packaging to provide adequate protection from the elements
Clipping of Pipe:
The recommended maximum clipping distances of the pipe is as follows:
Horizontal runs 1.2m apart
Vertical runs 1.5m apart
