Roth panel

I noticed in your pictures you ran the tubing on 12" centers. Why? The installation guide shows 6" centers. Did you find some specs on output/supply temps of 6" VS 12". I talked to Steve at Roth and he was going to get me those numbers but I have not seen them yet. I have used Warmboard, which uses 12" centers and it works great! Just wondering what the difference in supply temps is between 6 and 12" centers. Did you use 3/4" ply for filler on the edges?
Thanks for the input Jeffrey

    Roth Panel

    Has anyone used the Roth panel. The aluminum surface seems to be a great distributor BUT I am concerned about the styrofoam underside. I have a sample and have played around with it alittle and it seems easy to dent. What I have is an existing slab below grade basement. Customers want to add radiant and finish the basement. This product seems great since it incorporates the insulation with the panel. What other options would one have for a thermal break between new radiant panel and exisitng slab?
    Thanks Jeffrey
  • designed for our purpose

    Jeff,

    The Roth Panel is the ONLY panel designed to be both a direct transfer plate and an R3 insulation panel. I've designed and supplied many of them.

    The 90psi crush styrofoam becomes less of an issue once covered with your 3/4" floating wood floor or your sub floor material.

    works great for all sorts of retrofit work

    This is my house. I use a small electric water heater for comfort in a few rooms (currently).
