Uponor Quik Trak Panels

In-floor hydronic radiant heating systems provide heat quietly and efficiently, eliminating the need for radiators or vents in the living space. Best of all, they make occupants more comfortable and give them a warm floor to walk on. Radiant heat systems are perfect for new construction projects, where PEX tubing can be embedded in the slab.

For retrofit projects and suspended floors, consider Uponor's Quik Trak panels. Compatible with 5/16” PEX tubing, Quik Trak panels measure 4-feet long and create 7-inch spacing between tubing. Secure the Quik Trak above the subfloor, placing the finished floor on top of the panels. Wood flooring can be nailed directly to Quik Trak, which uses an aluminum layer to transfer heat evenly. PexSupply.com offers Quik Trak packages and a calculator to determine material requirements for specific projects.
