Slim solution for more comfort
Tailor-made and lean renovation solution
The main challenge in planning and installing the underfloor heating was the low construction height of the old prefabricated building of only five centimetres. Normally, however, screed layers plan a nominal screed thickness of around 45 millimetres above the heating pipe alone, depending on the load requirements. This was not possible in the Robinienweg - but the Uponor Minitec low profile underfloor heating is ideal for precisely such cases because it is very flat with an element height of only twelve millimetres. If required, the system can even be laid on existing screed or flooring. The Uponor Minitec Comfort Pipes are designed for decades of operation: The PE-Xa pipes, measuring 9.9 by 1.1 millimetres, are optimised for use in renovation projects with their small dimensions.
In Robinienweg, a ten-millimetre-thick WF wood fibre insulation board from Knauf forms the basis for the panel heating system. Together with the edging strip from Uponor, the board provides good impact sound insulation in the apartment building - compared to before, the impact sound could be improved by 20 decibels overall. To protect the insulation from moisture from the levelling compound and for perfect strength development, a boundary layer of synthetic coated kraft paper from Knauf lies on top of the wood fibre insulation board. The basis of the Uponor Minitec system are the pipe support elements, the so-called foil elements, which, thanks to their self-adhesive back, can be quickly and easily fixed to the floor and connected to each other via triangular studs. A 20-millimetre-thick layer of levelling screed N 440 from Knauf rounds off the construction in Robinienweg.
Fast construction progress with prefabricated distribution stations
On a total of 2,295 square metres of living space, the renovation system from Uponor now ensures a pleasant room temperature in Robinienweg. For a particularly fast construction progress, prefabricated Uponor Comfort Port manifolds were also used in the prefabricated building, which are delivered ready for connection directly to the construction site, so that they only had to be connected there. This saved around 2.5 hours of installation and set-up time per distribution station - quite a lot with a total of 31 Comfort Ports installed.
The combination of a low-build system and levelling screed proved to be the ideal solution for the low installation height in Robinienweg: Together, the impact sound insulation, underfloor heating and screed are only 42 millimetres high - a particularly slim construction, as Andreas Reischl, Managing Director of the Zwickau-based company Reischl Gebäude & Energietechnik GmbH, which was responsible for the installation of the underfloor heating, emphasises: "The conditions on site were special, but the overall solution from Uponor and Knauf convinced us in the execution."
