Thanks to Globe Gas for all of the coverage on @Twitter over the last week or so. Simply posting images of their brilliant installation of the Disman Profisel 18mm high density cement boards and 12mm multilayer pipe underfloor heating system really got the message out there. Lots of comments and positive feedback, both from the Twittersphere and from Lee and Steve the installers themselves.
@lee84_swifty UFH overlay system from @bhivesupplies assisted by my new apprentice 🤣🤣 Steve @BoilerfitNW my first UFH so quite a proud moment for me. @warmyourhome @yourserviceldn

B-Hive & Buteline are going from strength to strength. In the past 12 months, B-Hive’s relationship with the guys and girls at Buteline UK has developed into a genuine partnership. Whilst B-Hive is one of the few stockists of the product in the immediate area around Chelmsford, servicing trade clients over the counter, we have also grown our on-line presence and seen significant increases in client numbers across the UK. Keen pricing and excellent stock levels allow B-hive to turn orders around quickly and ensure the users have the products they require, when they require them. Added to this, our FOC delivery on orders over £300.00 net, this really sets us apart from the usual suspects.

Introduction to Buteline
Buteline fittings are integrally strong and durable, moulded from thermoplastic and pre-fitted with annealed aluminium sleeves.
These maintenance-free plumbing fittings fittings, once jointed with Buteline Polybutene-1 pipe, form a unique and technically superior joint. Users will find the total concept much quicker and more economical than other available systems. Buteline also have several innovative polymer alternatives to traditional brass fittings available, unique fittings that serve the same purpose (with some improvements in the case of the Bute-1) but allow for peace of mind and a potential cost-saving of up to 45%!Designed using hydraulic engineering concepts proven on high pressure hydraulic fitting-to-hose connections, Buteline fittings have an outstanding feature which enable them to overcome high stresses experienced in installation and while in service. The aluminium rings transfer all loads applied on the tail section to the strongest section of the fittings, thereby eliminating the risk of failure.
Buteline fittings are available in 4 sizes — 10mm, 16mm, 22mm and 28mm.
Fittings are technically superior, giving superb performance and durability over the long term with over 50 years of service life.
Main Advantages of Buteline Fittings
Lightweight, slim-line, one-piece design (no O rings or inserts), easy to use compared to bulky brass fittings
Post-clamp flare provides visual indication of joint completion
Use is not geographically restricted by geothermal conditions or hard water regions
Easier to install, no time-wasting with bulky tools, sliding sleeves, brazing, or searching around for lost copper rings!
Tests are carried out in accordance with relevant national and international requirements. Equivalent hoop stress pressures for up to 14.7MPa and forces of up to 13,100N are used in determining the strength and resistance to pull out of assembled joints. Test temperatures range between 20°C and 95 ± 1°C.
The Technically Superior Joint… Explained
8mm WIDE FORGED CLAMP Minimum working stress applied (approx. 0.5 ton per sq. in.) allowing pipe material to “flow” into insert tail grooves.
2mm WIDE FLARE No stress from clamping transmitted to insert tail or pipe at end of fitting. End of metal sleeve cannot impinge into pipe, even in bending.
TAPERED ENTRY, SMOOTH BORE Minimise resistance to water flow.
METAL REINFORCING SLEEVE Guarantees no stress break in this critical area.
FULL LENGTH ALUMINIUM SUPPORT Provides additional rigidity and resistance to pull-off. Seals against dirt and moisture.
SEALING RIBS Narrow lands with wide grooves, ensure clamp stress is transferred into the pipe joint efficiently.
We’ve been asked repeatedly for the technical data on the all new Disman Deck22 underfloor heating system.
Great option for joisted floor construction. Get the chippy to lay the boards as per standard deck and then go in and lay the plates and pipe once all the other trades are clear.
Ease of installation
Excellent thermal efficiency
Reduced heat losses
Consistent heat distribution
Reaction time reduced
Time & material costs reduced
16mm standard MLC or Pert Pipe
Finished floor is laid directly upon the system
Engineered and laminate can be installed directly upon
the Disman heat diffusion plates using low TOG underlay.
A minimum of 8mm engineered or laminate is required
when laying directly upon the Disman UFH-22 system.
Floor finishes, such as Tiles, Vinyl or Carpet, require the
Disman UFH-22 be covered with a minimum 10mm
cement board, hardy backer type board, or a 6mm WBP
plywood. All board laid upon the Disman UFH-22 system
must be screwed down at 150mm centres.
The Disman UFH-22 system will produce a maximum
output of 70w/m2.
“From start to finish these guy had everything covered. They were able to answer all of my questions, provide the type of system I wanted, create the design and supply the kit without any issues at all. I’d be more than happy to put my name to any recommendation for B-Hive Underfloor heating. Many thanks guys.”
XXX Plumbing & Heating
Got to say massive thanks to @bhivesupplies. We needed a couple of mlcp fittings and were miles from any suppliers so he got in the van himself and dropped them down. Top service. Great products too. Cheers Team B-Hive!
