Double aluminium spreader plate can be nailed, screwed or stapled onto the top of the floor joist or floor batten. The plates can give an output of 77 watts per m² at room temperature 20 degree C. w. But this is subject to many different factors that can vary the output as well and the floor temperature.
A Guide to calculate how many plates you require, multiply your heated floor m2 by 2, this will give you the 80% coverage.
When installing the plate we strongly recommend that the plate sits tightly beneath the floorboards, do that they are in direct contact with the sub-floor offering maximum heat transfer. We highly recommend using Rockwool or similar, which should be fitted directly underneath the plate.
These Aluminium Spreader Plates are one of the most common and most effective ways of having underfloor on a first floor. These plates can also be used with regroove insulated panel.
