Ultra-Fins for Radiant Heat

When installing hydronic radiant heat in a below-floor joist, several options exist. Suspending pipe in the joist with insulation beneath creates convection currents in the joist bay. Aluminum plates allow direct contact and more even heat distribution. Ultra-Fin plates offer another option, which combines these methods. The plates attach to 1/2” tubing, with their louvers creating even convection in the joist. SupplyHouse carries the Ultra-Fin system, along with all the necessary supplies for radiant heat projects.
