The new RadPad® radiant floor system-sizing slide chart calculator is a tool developed to make radiant sizing tasks quicker and easier, says the association. With a few minutes of study, the user can find tube lengths, spacing, water temperatures, floor surface temperatures, flow rates, pressure drops, and other information. The calculator helps determine how various floor structures will affect output. It provides information needed to select the optimum floor covering or predict how the owner’s choice of floor covering will impact the system, the association says.
