PEX Heat Stamped Aluminum Transfer Plates Stamped for 1/2 Inch PEX Tubing
PEX Radiant Aluminum Heat Transfer Plates are used with joist space installation method to enhance heat transfer. These PEX Heat Transfer Plates are made out of Stamped Aluminum.
Uses 1/2 Inch HousePEX PEX-A or PEX-C (Or any NSF Certified PEX Pipe) for convenient installation. Heat Transfer Plates are 4 1/2 Inches wide by 24 Inches long or 48 Inches long and .016 inches thick.
When installing HousePEX, Heatlink or Safelink's Mr. PEX tubing under the floor with heat transfer plates you should install the PEX 8 inches on center.
PEX Heat Transfer Plates should be kept as straight as possible so as the PEX expands it will be able to slide quietly.
We suggest you use a chalk line to help line up the plates straight. You should place the plates as close together as possible and at the ends where the PEX curves back to the next line of PEX heat transfer plates we suggest that you support the curve at both ends with a piece of wood between the joists. The wood should have rounded edges and support the PEX as close as possible to the sub floor as you can without having it bind in any way. Doing this should allow the PEX to move at both ends assuring as quiet an installation as possible. Talon clamps are used also in conjunction with PEX heat transfer plates for under floor radiant installations to help hold the PEX neatly to and from the PEX manifold.
