Watts Radiant FlexPlateCHICAGO — Watts Radiant is showing FlexPlate™, a new type of under floor heating plate. The primary material in the plate is a specially processed natural graphite, giving FlexPlate unique heat conduction properties. Extensive performance testing indicates FlexPlate will outperform conventional aluminum plates, says the company.

According to Watts Radiant, this increase in performance maximizes the thermal efficiency of any under floor radiant system through the use of lower input water temperatures. In some cases FlexPlate will permit the use of lower temperature sources such as modulating-condensing boilers, ground-source heat pumps, and solar thermal. FlexPlate is also lightweight, flexible, easy to cut to length, and features a simple staple-up installation, the company says.
