Rehau delivers underfloor heating for luxury apartments

Rehau, underfloor heating

Polymer solutions specialist Rehau has supplied its PE-Xa pipework to Oakley Court in Gerrard Cross through installer BeGreen. The luxury domestic development is using a renewables-based underfloor heating system, and the pipework is a vital element in delivering comfort for occupants.

Oakley Court has a central plant room with two 11Kw ground source heat pumps to deliver all the hot water to the six properties. As well as this the ground source heat pumps produce low grade hot water that is ideal for use with underfloor heating installations.

The development is by Mentmore Homes, who have an established relationship with BeGreen. Garry Woods, owner of BeGreen, says: “We knew we needed underfloor heating for the development as this would work well with the renewable heating solutions we had in mind.

“As well as being more energy efficient, underfloor heating is aesthetically more pleasing for buyers as there is no need for radiators so homeowners have more choice about how they want their rooms arranged.”

REHAU’s PE-Xa pipework was installed in each of the flats to circulate the hot water and provide homeowners with cost-effective underfloor heating. To ensure a neat and tidy installation, the pipework was run up the internal riser of the building in the medium voltage high riser.
