Uponor Self Attaching U N D E R F LO O R H E AT I N G AND COOLING

01 | 2013


Uponor Self Attaching Designed for a fast installation Uponor’s innovative Self Attaching can cut the time to install underfloor heating by 50 per cent and thus provide significant cost savings. Using its ’hook and loop` technology Uponor Self Attaching offers a tool-free and hassle-free fixing method that will allow one individual to lay a complete underfloor installation in half the time of traditional installation methods. A hook fastening tape is wound around the MLC or PE-Xa pipes for the use as Uponor Self Attaching. Parallel the insulating panels are completely covered with a matching laminated loop foil.

That ensures a fast and easy pipe laying. The pipes will be reeled off and pushed onto the foil. The fastening tape on the pipes will be interlocked with the foil of the panels and fastens the pipes. The self attaching tape and self attaching panels are ideally adjusted for optimized and highest retention force. However the installed pipes can be repositioned in case of changes of the distances when laying the pipes. Just disconnect the pipe and fix it again on the panel. To ease the pipe laying patterns have been printed on the foils which ensure exact pipe distances. Just use your foot to join the pipe and the foil

Hook and loop retention fixing

That is how underfloor heating can easily be laid – the factory wrapped Uponor Self Attaching pipes made can be fixed on the foil by easily pushing the pipe onto the foil. The installation technique ensures highest retention force.

The key element of the Uponor Self Attaching is a unique band which is wound in a spiral around the pipe. This band contains thousands of micro teeth which ensure high retention force when pressed on the matching laminated loop foil.

Tight bend radii possible without fiddling around Three different pipes available
