KARDO Waterpanel EL - Styrofoam (EPS) Insulation Board for Water Underfloor Heating Systems

Product Description:

KARDO Waterpanel EL is an Insulation Board with an
EPS core (designed to reduce water absorption) with
grooves, for underfloor heating pipes installation. All is
covered by aluminium foil to increase the thermal
conductivity.

Approvals:

Declaration of Performance for EPS Insulation Boards.

Dimensions:

Length x Width:........................1000 x 500 mm (+/-10 mm) Thickness:................................................30 mm (+/-2 mm)

Distance between grooves:.................. 125 mm (+/-2 mm)

Application:

KARDO Waterpanel EL is an Insulation Board designed
to be used as an insulation material for water radiant
heating / cooling (floor, wall or ceiling). It is designed to
not require screed, but flex adhesive which is placed on
the surface of the insulation board, meaning the tiles or
other type of coverings can be laid straight on top.

Product Features:

KARDO Waterpanel EL is an exceptionally durable and
easy to cut insulation board. This board can be installed
in damp areas, has superb insulation properties. This
system facilitates an increase in heating efficiency (the
warm-up time is shorter) and decrease the running cost.

Preparing The Base:

The building base must be load-bearing, stable, levelled
and dust and grease free. In the case of a base made of
wood-like OSB boards, it is recommended to arrange the
boards (OSB) in two layers, to avoid the floor lifting. Old
layers of oil and paints must be removed.

 

Installation of KARDO Waterpanel EL on a concrete or wood-based substrate (OSB):

 

1. The first step is to lay PE foil 0.2 mm thickness along the
wall partitions of a room with an edge band or styrofoam /
wool (dilatation tape).

2. Next, lay KARDO Waterpanel EL boards and EPS 200
boards on the areas which won't require the radiant
heating system. If the floor or wall heating system
requires insulation boards which are thicker than 30 mm,
then a layer of EPS 200 is required to be underneath this
system.


3. To install the pipes, the aluminium foil must be cut prior to
the installation. Once the foil is prepared, press the pipe
into the 16 mm diameter grooves. NOTE: It is
recommended to form coils into a meander-like shape
which is efficient up to 80 m of the pipe on one heating
installation. If longer pipes are required, it is possible to
create the next heating surface with pipe up to 80 m.


4. Connect the pipes to distributors and a pumping set for
surface heating. Due to the possiblilty of the boards lifting
during the laying of the water pipes, they are allowed to
be fastened to the base with pins or wood screws with
washers.

Installation under laminate flooring
On the surface of KARDO Waterpanel EL, after inserting
the pipes into the grooves, arrange suitable underlay and
proceed to the assembly of laminate flooring in
accordance with the producer’s recommendations.

Installation under ceramic tiles
Floor finishes like tiles can be laid directly on top of the
boards, using KARDO Proof adhesive with thickness
minimum 2 mm. KARDO Proof adhesive is recommended
for installation, as written on the pack. Please consult
KARDO Insulation Company before using another brand of
an adhesive.
