About Profoil - EPIC Insulation

Innovative Underfloor Heating Panels & Floor Insulation Systems
Warm water (hydronic) underfloor heating has seen a surge in popularity in Britain as consumers have become increasingly aware of the many benefits an in-floor heating solution can provide and in particular its compatibility with renewable energy sources such as air-source and ground-source heat pumps.

Epic Insulation Ltd is a leading manufacturer of specialist products for the underfloor heating market and over many years has developed a range of purpose made underfloor heating panels and insulation solutions which provide considerable benefits when combined with warm water underfloor heating systems.

Profoil™ Insulation Floor Panels
Profoil™ insulation floor panels are of a unique design and provide many advantages over other insulation products when used with warm water underfloor heating systems.

Effectively four products in one, Profoil™ insulation floor panels comprise a rigid thermal insulation material with radiused grooves of a specified diameter and pattern positioned in the upper surface. The upper surface has a metallized foil bonded to it, following into the grooves, which acts as a radiant surface improving heat transfer and reducing system start up times.

The grooves in the insulation panels securely retain the continuous pipework in the correct position, eliminating the need for supplementary fixings.

The choice of insulation material, floor panel thickness and edge detail, and the diameter and pattern of the grooves, is bespoke to the client’s specific design and performance requirements, as is the inclusion of an integrated acoustic foam layer if required.

Profoil™ Insulation Panels provide a flexible, cost effective solution for Floating Floor, Timber Suspended Floor, Floor on Floor and Battened Floor systems.

Floating Floor Underfloor Heating
Profoil™ Floating Floor Panels are manufactured to meet the client’s individual project requirements and hence provide a totally flexible, bespoke solution that enables specific design and performance criteria to be achieved.

A polythene vapour barrier is laid on top of the concrete slab and the panels are then laid across the whole area. The floor finish, tongued & grooved chipboard or wood strip flooring, is then laid directly over the panels, leaving a small expansion gap around the perimeter of the room. In areas of heavy traffic, timber supports should be placed directly beneath the floor joints.

Suspended Floor Underfloor Heating
Profoil™ Timber Suspended Floor Panels are manufactured to meet the client’s individual project requirements and hence provide a totally flexible, bespoke solution that enables specific design and performance criteria to be achieved.

Profoil™ Timber Suspended Floor Panels are suitable for use in both new and existing timber suspended floors and are simply fitted between the joists, supported on timber battens pre-installed to the faces of the joists, and a tongued & grooved chipboard or a timber floor finish is then applied.

Floor on Floor Heating System
Profoil™ Floor on Floor Panels are manufactured to meet the client’s individual project requirements and hence provide a totally flexible, bespoke solution that enables specific design and performance criteria to be achieved.

Profoil™ Floor on Floor Panels can be laid directly on an existing floor, avoiding the need to lift the current tongued & grooved chipboard or timber floor finish in order to gain access to the joists beneath (as would be necessary when fitting a Profoil™ Timber Suspended Floor system in an existing floor). However, the final floor level should be carefully considered when using this system.

Battened Floor Heating System
Profoil™ Battened Floor Panels are manufactured to meet the client’s individual project requirements and hence provide a totally flexible, bespoke solution that enables specific design and performance criteria to be achieved.

Timber battens of a uniform thickness are fixed to the level concrete slab at prescribed spacings. Profoil™ Battened Floor Panels (of the same thickness as the timber battens) are then fitted between the battens and a tongued & grooved chipboard or a timber floor finish is then applied.

A similar system can be used for sprung floors, although the flooring manufacturer’s recommendations regarding compatibility with warm water underfloor heating systems should be considered.
