PART-E SOLUTIONS

Underfloor heating solutions with outstanding acoustic performance

At Jupiter we believe that there is more to underfloor heating than simply pipework. That is why we were the first manufacturer to produce an underfloor heating system that takes care of impact and airborne sound.

Where other suppliers rely on third party resilient layers to deal with acoustic issues, the IDEAL ECO system is both an underfloor heating system and acoustic treatment in one.

Being made from recycled wood fibre the IDEAL ECO panel has considerable mass – conducive to reducing sound transmission. When part of an overall floor construction the IDEAL ECO system can contribute significantly to Part E of the Building Regulations.

As well as being effective on a concrete slab and over suspended floor constructions, Jupiter have successfully exceeded Part E requirements even when installing between existing floor joists.

BRIEF INSTALLATION GUIDE

Jupiter manufacture the IDEAL ECO system primarily for its acoustic properties. The high density of the wood fibre acts as a resilient layer.

Used in conjunction with either our 12 mm Firmax board or 20mm Fermacell, the IDEAL ECO system is perfect as an acoustic floor treatment, especially in apartment buildings.

We also cracked the problem of installing underfloor heating within floor joists whilst retaining a floor construction that complies with Part-E. Redupax™ is a wood fibre based acoustic floor treatment. We cut the Redupax™ panels into strips so they fit exactly on top of each joist.

Not enough space for an underfloor heating system?

When there is not enough floor space to provide sufficient heat output Jupiter has considered the walls as an additional solution to heat any area. See our page on SYSTEM VERTICAL to find out more.
