To further meet the needs of the hydronic radiant heating market, Uponor announces two new products that will revolutionize radiant floor heating installations for residential applications: Radiant Ready 30E™ and Fast Trak™.
Ideal for remodels, retrofits and new construction, the Radiant Ready 30E is a complete radiant mechanical room designed in a compact, preassembled, easy-to-install panel. The installer simply hangs the panel on a wall and connects the tubing, thermostat and electrical power. To accompany the panel, Fast Trak knobbed mats provide a faster, easier method for installing cross-linked polyethylene (PEX) tubing in over-pour applications for basements, recreation rooms, bathrooms or any area of a home.
“We wanted to make radiant floor heating a simple, accessible, cost-effective option for today's homeowner and remodeler,” says Mark Hudoba, senior product manager, Residential Radiant Heating at Uponor. “These two products will make it faster and easier to install the ideal comfort and energy efficiency of radiant floor heat.”
The Radiant Ready 30E includes a 30,000 BTUH electric boiler, an Uponor Engineered Plastic (EP) heating manifold, a pump, expansion tank, pressure-relief valve, isolation valves, thermostat and air vent — all preassembled and prewired into the unit. The Radiant Ready 30E is designed to cover up to 2,000-sq.ft. of radiant floor heating (based on 15 BTUH sq.ft.) and 4,000-sq.ft. of radiant floor warming (based on 7.5 BTUH sq.ft.). It comes standard with a five-loop manifold which can be customized to add additional loops if necessary (up to eight fit inside the unit). The complete package also includes an Uponor heat-only thermostat, an outdoor temperature Sensor, fastening hardware and additional accessories.
