The NIBCO® heat transfer plate for ½-inch PEX tubing is made of 18-gauge galvanized steel, in 4-foot by 4-1/4-inch panels. Piping is easily attached through the unique alternate C-channels in the heat transfer plate. The heat transfer plate helps to disperse heat from PEX tubing for more even heat distribution in a radiant heat system. The standard model plates have a "C" channel which holds the PEX against the subfloor.The contractor grade RADTRAX plate can be installed first; then the tubing is pushed into the holding clips.In a radiant heat system water is heated from a heat source which is typically a water heater or boiler and then distributed through PEX tubing installed in the floor. The heat from the water radiates from the floor up, and stays in the room so there is even temperature from floor to ceiling, while preserving natural humidity. The NIBCO® radiant heat system can save on heating costs, from 10% to 40% over traditional heating systems.NIBCO® PEX tubing, fittings, valves, and manifolds are designed to be used as a complete system, and are backed by a NIBCO INC. limited warranty.
