Creatherm 1" Radiant Floor Panel - 18/bundle

  • SKU:  00CTT45

Creatherm T-45 1" Radiant Floor Panels (18/bundle)

Creatherm Radiant Floor Panels are manufactured out of BASF Styropor and Neopor EPS to offer superior strength and insulating properties. The most innovative feature is the pre-molded tubing channel system that allows for simple, efficient installation while maintaining proper tube alignment. These channels eliminate ‘hot spots’ and provide a more comfortable environment for the homeowner. Creatherm radiant floor panels are easily installed. Interlocking panels help reduce labor costs and improve installation efficiencies by allowing for precise tube layout that eliminates the need to tie, clip, staple, or screw the PEX [cross-linked polyethylene] tubing to the substrate.

Benefits:

  • Saves Labor & Installation Time
  • Reduced Cost to Install and Operate
  • Pre-slotted Channels for Uniform Tube Placement
  • Equal Heat Dispersion
  • Eliminate On-Site Trip Hazards
  • Stay on Schedule
  • UV Resistant Packaging
  • Simple Walk-In Installation Eliminates Need to Tie, Clip, Staple or Screw to Substrate

Creatherm & BASF: A partnership built on innovation

Our partnership with BASF allows us to take advantage of some of the world’s best engineering minds to leverage the most efficient and effective materials for strength and insulation. Styropor®, an expandable polystyrene (EPS), was invented by BASF in 1952 and is a classic among the raw materials employed for cost-effective construction, as well as efficient and reliable packaging. Neopor®, an expandable polystyrene (EPS) was invented by BASF in 1995 by mixing graphite with the raw material. The most important properties of EPS include: excellent thermal insulation capacity, high compressive strength, outstanding impact absorption and low weight. Foam is an eco-friendly building material and is incredibly strong, quiet, virtually allergen free and is not a food source for insects or mold. These panels offer a great solution for slab-on-grade, snow melt, retro-fit and root zone heating. The finished floor panel size is 2’ x 4’ and features a staggered snap-tight grid for optimal tubing spacing. On-center points exist every 3 inches.
