EPS 400 Low Profile Overlay Floor Panel

£12.48 (inc.VAT)

The EPS 400 low profile overlay floor panel (1200mm x 600mm x 20mm) offers a simple solution to install underfloor heating into your home without the need to uplift your floor. The panels can be placed directly onto the existing concrete, floorboards or solid flooring and are a perfect choice for retrofit installations.

They are suitable for laminate, carpet, tiles, vinyl and engineered wood. With a minimal height increase of just 20mm and a high compressive strength of 400KPA they are very lightweight meaning they are simple to fit and are easily installed. 

Please see below for additional information on fitting.

The 20mm panels uses a 16mm pipe at 150mm pipe spacings. The panels should be secured with adhesive and can be laid onto any existing, level flooring.

EPS panels are made from high compressive strength Expanded PolyStyrene (EPS). EPS400 is the strongest density available today and can be used with all floor coverings. The panels are also fitted with 200 micron thick aluminium foil which is the most optimal for floor heat up times (allowing the floor to heat in 30 mins), any thicker than 200 microns offers no performance gain. Thinner aluminium foil layers makes heat up times much longer. The 200 micron boards allow heat outputs of 100w/m² for under wood and laminate floorings while offering 80w/m² for under carpet flooring.

Further information

Tiles, Laminates and engineered wood can be fitted directly on top using suitable tile adhesive.

Carpets & Vinyl should be fitted using a suitable backer board over the panels.

When installing ceramic, vitrified, quarry and porcelain tiles, we recommend priming the boards with MAPEI ECO PRIM GRIP, levelling with 5mm+ of MAPEI ULTRAPLAN RENOVATION SCREED and bonding the tiles using MAPEI KERABOND T & MAPEI ISOLASTIC (100%).

When installing natural stone tiles, we recommend priming the boards with MAPEI ECO PRIM GRIP, levelling with 5mm+ of MAPEI ULTRAPLAN RENOVATION SCREED, and then bonding the tiles with MAPEI ELASTORAPID or MAPEIGRANIRAPID.

When installing ceramic, porcelain & natural stone tiles in a wet room, we recommend priming the boards with MAPEI ECO PRIM GRIP, levelling with 5mm+ of MAPEI ULTRAPLAN RENOVATION SCREED, applying MAPEI MAPELASTIC AQUADEFENCE/MAPEI MAPEBAND, and bonding the tiles with MAPEI ELASTORAPID.

Nice company to do business with.I wanted to open up a trade account with them for a new business and they were quite... forthright when they confirmed that they don't do trade accounts because their prices were. extremely competitive. I checked up and I'm delighted to confirm that they were cheaper than the manufacturers of the thermostats I purchased was selling them for online. A big recommend!read more

Just to say thanks for excellent service last week - the main order turned up when promised, as did the later one when... you didn't have enough items in stock, both in good time so we were able to get the job done. Also really appreciated the phone call to let me know what was going on. Well done and thanks again.read more
