Uponor has launched the Siccus Mini underfloor heating system. An ideal solution for refurbishment projects due to its low-construction height of just 15mm, it is easy to install on an existing floor, allowing more properties to benefit from an energy efficient radiant heating system.
Furthermore, its ultra-thin, close to floor design allows the Siccus Mini system to deliver 90% of the desired temperature in just 50 minutes.
Installers will appreciate the hassle-free installation method of Uponor’s Siccus Mini underfloor heating system. It can be undertaken by one trade professional and installed on top of an existing floor. The added benefit is that the new top surface can be laid immediately without having to factor in any screed drying times, which means the job can be completed quickly and easily.
Once installed, the reliable Siccus Mini achieves a 34% higher heating capacity than conventional dry systems and uses 31% less heat energy than radiators. The system’s proximity to the floor’s surface means the system is fast to reach the desired temperature when compared to conventional dry systems, which need over two hours, and wet systems, which need over three hours.
“Traditionally, opting for underfloor heating within an existing property is a real headache,” said James Griffiths, Senior Manager Marketing North-West Europe at Uponor. “It can be a dirty, time-consuming job for the installer, and it changes the floor’s construction height, which impacts the height of the windows, doorways and other fixtures in the room, which all have to be addressed. The Siccus Mini overcomes all of these challenges. It provides a high performance, low energy system that is straightforward to install and future proofs installations switching to heat pumps or hybrid heating systems in the future.”
The new Siccus Mini underfloor heating system is suitable for all flooring types including laminate, parquet, natural stone, tiles, vinyl and carpet. Its versatility, ease of installation and excellent performance make it an ideal option for new build properties but in particular refurbishment projects that want to transition to energy efficient heating systems.
