A boiler or heat pump supplies heat to the system by heating the water (that is pumped through it.
Primary pipework carries the heat from the heat source to the manifold(s). Manifolds distribute the heat to the underfloor pipe loops.
Pipe loops, with hot water flowing through them, heat the floor, typically at least 1 loop for every 20 m2 of heated floor area.
Controller switches the heat source on and off, and directs the heat to where it is needed to heat the rooms to the desired temperature.
Underfloor heating requires a flow temperature of around 50°C flow and 40°C return.
Feel comfort by controlling the temperature of each room with a Thermostat or by your smart home application.
Underfloor Heating System Characteristics:
Temperature distribution with floor heatingsystem
Temperature distribution with convectivesystem
Absence of convective motions.
Vertical distribution of temperature.
The temperature distribution is the nearest to the ideal curve and therefore “thermal well- being”.
ENERGY SAVING … To save about 25% or more thanks to:
Low temperature of the heating fluid.
Elevated heating surfaces.
Reduced heat loss.
Thermal well-being at lower room temperatures (1°C less than traditional systems).
There is no transport of dust normally caused by the convective motions.
No combustion of dust that creates stains on walls.
No risk of irritation of air tracts.
No architectural limits linked to the presence of radiators / fan heaters.
Possibility of using all available space.
Minimum architectural impact in buildings such museums and old villas.

The presence of the aluminum layer, its thickness and position, result in excellent heat conductivity characteristics.
With Mixal®pipes it is possible to carry out floor heating systems with higher heat outputs.
In fact, the greater conductance generates higher temperatures on the pipe surface as compared with all-plastic pipes (PE-X and PERT) and this advantage is reflected, for example in the possibility of obtaining relatively low supply temperatures.
The greater performance of Mixal®pipes compared with all-plastic pipes means greater system output at equal flow conditions. An example: the 16×2 Mixal® pipe has the same thermal output as the 17×2 PE-X pipe.
The mechanical characteristics of the Mixal® pipes make them ideal for use in floor heating systems. The bending radius corresponds to 2.5 times the pipe diameter and the circular section at the bend remains constant.
The pipe, once bent, remains in the desired position like a metal pipe; hence the use of anchor clips is not required as with all-plastic pipes.
Barrier against oxygen and UV rays
The inner layer in aluminum acts as a perfect barrier against the passage of gaseous molecules thus avoiding the danger of corrosion due to oxygen infiltration and damage caused by exposure to UV rays
