Uponor’s Brampton Distribution Centre

To further meet the needs of the hydronic radiant heating market, Uponor announces two new products that will revolutionize radiant floor heating installations for residential applications: Radiant Ready 30E™ and Fast Trak™.

Ideal for remodels, retrofits and new construction, the Radiant Ready 30E is a complete radiant mechanical room designed in a compact, preassembled, easy-to-install panel. The installer simply hangs the panel on a wall and connects the tubing, thermostat and electrical power. To accompany the panel, Fast Trak knobbed mats provide a faster, easier method for installing crosslinked polyethylene (PEX) tubing in overpour applications for basements, recreation rooms, bathrooms or any area of a home.

"We wanted to make radiant floor heating a simple, accessible, cost-effective option for today's homeowner and remodeler," says Mark Hudoba, senior product manager, Residential Radiant Heating at Uponor. "These two products will make it faster and easier to install the ideal comfort and energy efficiency of radiant floor heat."

The Radiant Ready 30E includes a 30,000 BTU/h electric boiler, an Uponor Engineered Plastic (EP) Heating Manifold, a pump, expansion tank, pressure-relief valve, isolation valves, thermostat and air vent – all preassembled and prewired into the unit. The Radiant Ready 30E is designed to cover up to 2,000 square feet of radiant floor heating (based on 15 BTU/h/sq. ft.) and 4,000 square feet of radiant floor warming (based on 7.5 BTU/h/sq. ft.). It comes standard with a five-loop manifold which can be customized to add additional loops if necessary (up to 8 fit inside the unit). The complete package also includes an Uponor Heat-only Thermostat, an Outdoor Temperature Sensor, fastening hardware and additional accessories.

Fast Trak products are available in two models: Fast Trak 0.5 and Fast Trak 1.3i. Fast Trak 0.5 is only ½" thick, eliminating the need to alter baseboards, moldings or doors. The product is made for 5/16" PEX tubing and features an adhesive backing for easy installation to a slab or subfloor. Fast Trak 1.3i is 1¼" thick. It holds 3/8" or ½" PEX tubing and includes insulation already in the mat, eliminating the added time and cost of installing insulation under the tubing.

"When designing these products, we spoke with everyone from the installer to the homeowner to the remodeler to ensure we were meeting the needs of the market," says Hudoba. "Being that we brought radiant floor heating to the North American market more than 35 years ago, it is our passion to make it simple and accessible for all."
