INTRODUCTION

These guidelines concern Junckers sports floor systems installed over underfloor heating.

Please note that full documentation of a sports floor system with a built-in underfloor heating system comprises information in E 4.0, E 4.4, see table 1. It is also recommeded to read about the individual sports floor systems in chapter D.


MOISTURE CONTENT IN WOODEN BASED MATERIALS

Battens and other wooden based materials included in substructures with underfloor heating should generally have lower moisture content than normally specified.

This because the wood will dry out more – in ideal conditions max. 10 %. Laminated battens supplied with Junckers Sports Floors with a moisture content of 8-10 % are therefore particularly suitable.

Insulation up to the underside of the heat-distribution plates and heating pipes will reduce the heat loss.


UNOBAT 45 AND BLUBAT 52

Unobat 45 and Blubat 52 sports floor systems can be laid on concrete or screeded subfloors with cast-in heating pipes or cables. It is extremely important that the floor heating system is designed to achieve a stable temperature across the surface of the concrete or screed. The following applies to heating pipes in concrete or screeded floors:

To ensure an even temperature distribution on casting there must be min. 30 mm of concrete or screed above the heating pipes. The pipes should not be spaced more than 300 mm apart, and the cables not more than 150 mm apart.

The residual moisture contained in the concrete or screed should not exceed 90 % RH (UK: max. 75 % RH acc. to BS 8201).

Moisture barrier: All overlaps must be taped using 50 mm wide tape.

For detailed sports floor system information, see D 11.1 for Blubat and D 6.1 for Unobat 45.

CLIP SPORTS FLOORS

The Clip Sports Floor System can be laid on concrete or screeded subfloors with cast-in heating pipes or cables. It is extremely important that the floor heating system is designed to achieve a stable temperature across the surface of the concrete or screed. The following applies to heating pipes in concrete or screeded floors:

To ensure an even temperature distribution, on casting there must be min. 30 mm of concrete or screed above the heating pipes. The pipes should not be spaced more than 300 mm apart, and the cables not more than 150 mm apart. The residual moisture contained in the concrete or screed should not exceed 90% RH (UK: max. 75% RH acc. to BS 8201).

Moisture barrier: All overlaps must be taped using 50 mm wide tape. For detailed sports floor system information, see D 2.1, Clip floors.

The heating pipes are laid on a 50 mm hard plate of insulation. To ensure an even temperature distribution, the pipes should not be spaced more than 300 mm apart.

The residual moisture contained in the concrete or screed should not exceed 90 % RH (UK: max 75 % RH acc. to BS 8201).

Moisture barrier: All overlaps must be taped using 50 mm wide tape.

For detailed sports floor system information see D 8.1, Unobat 62+.
