Double Groove Spreader Plate
Underfloor Heating Double Grooved Spreader Plate, for suspended floors constructions, fitting on top of floor joists or battens at the standard 400mm centres. Because of the 200mm pipe spacing these plates are commonly used with Boiler systems. If you require Triple Groove Plates these are also available. Plates are also commonly referred to as a diffuser plates or trays.
The Aluminium plates, can be nailed, screwed or stapled onto the top of the floor joist or batten. The aluminium underfloor heating spreader plates can give an output of 77 watts per m² at room temperature 20 degree C. But this is subject to many different factors that can vary the output as well and the floor temperature.
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. This is so 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.
The Metal Diffuser/Spreader Plate is one of the most common and effective ways of having underfloor on a first floor. These plates can also be used with regroove insulated panel.
