Above Sub-Floor Radiant Heating Panel When Concrete Is Not Used

What is Rad Board?

Rad Board is the solution for easy, above sub-floor hydronic radiant heating installations. Unlike staple-up solutions and competitors’ above sub-floor products, Rad Board allows an easy method to run radiant floor lines in virtually any pattern and room you need.

No more running past your zones. No more punching through the sub-floor to get back to your manifold. No more working under the floor. Now you can easily isolate any area and get the tubing pattern you need.

Rad Board is a modular panel that comes in three patterns with grooves to hold 1/2" Pex and PE-RT. Its aluminum backing helps even the thermal transfer and the MDF core’s thermal transfer properties has just the right amount of density for quick reaction with long heat retention.

Compared to Other Panels, Rad Board...
• Is easier to install
• Uses 1/2" Pex/PE-RT tubing instead of 3/8" tubing
• Costs less than the competitors
• Provides virtually any pattern layout with three simple panel designs

Install It Yourself!
Designed with 8" on-center locking grooves to hold ½" Pex or PE-RT lines, Rad Board makes it easy to maintain lines within each zone. With three panel designs that require little to no onsite customization, installation is straightforward and simple.

Customize It to Your Plan

Rad Board is 2' x 2' x ¾" aluminum-backed radiant heating floor panel that installs over your sub-floor and under your floor covering with a density that reacts faster than concrete without the risk of “running away.” Common floor coverings used over Rad Board include tile, laminate, engineered wood, hardwood, vinyl and carpet. Rad Board provides much greater radiant tube pattern design flexibility than staple-up solutions and greater heat transfer properties. It’s the choice contractors and homeowners are making for efficient and economical radiant floors.
