Tuesday, Jan. 29, 2013: Watts Radiant Introduces Flexible, Pre-Insulated Piping System

January 29, 2013
pre-insulated piping systemDALLAS — Watts Radiant is introducing a flexible, pre-insulated piping system called R-flex™. R-flex consists of single or dual PEX carrier pipe(s) surrounded by a thick layer of cross-linked PEX foam insulation. All of this is protected by a thick, double-wall corrugated outer shell. R-flex is able to maintain tighter bends, which means easier handling and faster installations. The benefits of the unique insulation design are low water vapor absorption, enhanced R-value, and excellent resistance to extreme temperatures.

Watts Radiant is also introducing FlexPlate, a new type of under floor heating plate. The primary material in the plate is a specially processed natural graphite giving it unique heat conduction properties. The company says that extensive performance testing indicates FlexPlate will outperform industry standard aluminum plates. This increase in performance maximizes the thermal efficiency of any under floor radiant system through the use of lower input water temperatures.
