The FlexPlate is an underfloor heating plate. The primary material in the plate is specially processed natural graphite, which gives the plate unique heat conduction properties, says the company. According to the manufacturer, the plate increases performance, maximizing the thermal efficiency of any underfloor radiant system through the use of lower input water temperatures. In some cases, the plate will permit the use of lower temperature sources, such as modulating-condensing boilers, ground-source heat pumps, and solar thermal. The plate is lightweight, flexible, easy to cut to length, and features a simple staple-up installation.
