AQUALAY low profile panel is easy to install.
Firstly, Aqualay Master Panels are
used to cover the majority of the
floor area to be heated. Secondly, Aqualay
Universal Panels are used as pipe
return ends and for areas with difficult
layouts allowing the pipe route to be positioned with ease. These panels can be fitted onto a wide range of
substrates including concrete, screed, asphalt, chipboard and plywood.
AQUALAY low profile panel’s are not
designed to span across floor joists and must be fully
supported by the floor which they are to cover. The panels
can be fixed using flexible cement based tile adhesive or low
expansion PU Foam in addition to screws and washers. The panels provide
an insulated floor surface with pre-set groves for pipe work.
In conclusion, when the water pipes have been fitted into the Aqualay and tested, preparation of the
Aqualay surface for the final floor finishes can begin.
Surface preparation for application of:
For domestic applications, if the floor is flat and level, tiles can be applied direct to the Aqualay Panels, however, we do recommend filling all unused channels in the Aqualay panels with tile adhesive prior to fixing tiles.
For heavy traffic areas and projects subject to heavy loads. we recommend applying Aqualay ProTek levelling compound at a minimum 5mm thick. After That tiles can be fixed using a good quality cement based flexible tile adhesive.
N.B When choosing tiles for your floor it is important to consider point loading. Applying larger tiles improves resistance to concentrated loads. Above all tiles must be fixed using a solid bed of adhesive ensuring no voids remain under the tiles.
Engineered wood & laminate flooring:
Fill all unused groves with a good quality cement based Tile adhesive.Therefore leaving a smooth flat surface.
Lay the Engineered wood/Laminate over the Aqualay, fit a thin layer of soft foam underlay beneath the
For Projects that are subject to heavy loads, we recommend you apply a minimum 5mm layer of Aqualay ProTek levelling compound before fitting your flooring.
Apply a minimum 10mm layer Aqualay ProTek levelling compound over the entire surface, before fitting Carpet or Vinyl flooring.
