Wavin 'How to' videos - Composite Manifold Installation

Published:  15 August, 2012

In the first of a series that will eventually cover the entire installation process, Thermoboard – Wavin’s Underfloor Heating (UFH) division – has published four videos detailing the step-by-step installation of UFH manifolds: the system elements that link heating loops and heat sources together.

Different manifold types and applications covered are: modular and lightweight composite manifold for multi-circuit installations; single circuit control packs; and, for low build up systems using thinner bore pipe, single zone control systems and small room connection packs.

The first video describes the installation of a manifold which is suitable for the majority of applications. This composite manifold can accommodate systems with between 1 and 12 heating zones and can accept pipes from above or below; so it can easily accommodate circuits on different floors of a property, if required.

The manifold videos are the first in an upcoming full series from the company which will eventually tackle the entire gamut of UFH installation subjects – whether dealing with control centres (networked or standard) or the comprehensive range of floor product solutions for all applications. The manifold installation videos can be accessed via www.thermoboard.co.uk or YouTube.
