Disman Profisel Underfloor Heating Installation

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.

Disman UFH-Deck22 System  <<< Download

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.

Key Advantages…

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.

A chat with Frank….. A life less hurried.

So, a few months ago I got chatting to a guy I know on Moulsham Street in Chelmsford. He’s a nice old guy, out walking his dog, I know him from the pub. Clearly eager for a chat, he started talking about something he knew I would respond to….. rugby. Probably the one of the few things that this charming, well to do guy and I have in common. So, we chatted for five or ten minutes about the changes in the game since he and I were playing (30 years for him, not so much for me), putting the rugby world to rights.

Anyway, while I was chatting to him, a guy stopped to read the details on the B-Hive Underfloor van. Ever the opportunist, I politely broke the conversation from my evergreen friend and asked if I could help this new guy. Tony, it turned out was re-furbishing a house in Chelmsford but couldn’t find the underfloor heating system that would work for him. So, yet again I started to chat to a guy on the street about something I find very easy to chat about.

Tony’s plan was to completely renovate a 19th century cottage. He was planning on getting as much insulation in as was practicable, replacing all the sash windows with reproductions, using the most efficient gas boiler he could find, whilst trying to maintain the character of the building….. “sounds expensive” I said.

Anyway, as the proportions of this cottage weren’t what he needed for his family, he wanted to do away with any unnecessary bulk in each of the rooms….. specifically radiators (his words). Underfloor heating, he said, was what he wanted.

In the space of about 10 minutes we’d established exactly what he’d use, gone through the pro’s and con’s of each system or solution available on the market, screed, floating, diffusion plates…. everything we could think of between us (he’d done his homework). By the end it seemed the best solution was one that met pretty much all of his needs.

Aligned with the Delta Dore home management control system, to help Tony monitor everything at home from his offices in London, we settled on a solid over-lay system board. Disman routed Fermacell panels laid directly onto the existing floor boards (new insulation below), and run with 12mm MLC pipe back to the centrally place Disman underfloor heating manifold under the stairs.

Raising the floor height by just 19mm, Tony decided that there was more than enough head height in his property and was happy to move forward with pricing and design. Furthermore, this system helped with his wife’s desire for ceramic floor finish, perfect for underfloor and laid directly onto the boards.

A few months latter the system’s in and working, Tony’s happy, his wife is happy, I’m happy and I think Frank, my old buddy on Moulsham Street was happy for the chat. I was in a rush that day…. work, family etc. all the pressures we all experience in day to day life, but I’m glad Frank stopped me. If he hadn’t I wouldn’t have got the sale. I won’t be rushing past him on the street next time….. and I must buy him a pint….or two.
