Polypipe pilots its new Overlay Plus low-profile underfloor heating system

Thursday 2nd July 2020

The homeowner was looking for an effective heating system for the renovation of his 20-year-old home, ensuring he could maximise the living space, both upstairs and down.

Underfloor Heating Product Manager Giles Coombes approached the homeowner about piloting our newest OverlayTM Plus in his renovation project. Craig Prosser at CJP Underfloor Heating was asked if he would be interested in being the first to fit the Polypipe OverlayTM Plus system, to which he jumped at the opportunity



The new low-profile system boasts a lightweight construction, weighing in at a total of 1.2kg per board allowing Craig to effortlessly carry four boards at a time up to the 1st level of the house with ease, compared to the traditional heavier OverlayTM which weighed 10kg per board.

The boards are designed to be used in both high and low traffic areas, meaning the system could be utilised throughout the entire house.


Due to the ease of use of the new system Craig could complete the entire house project in less than a week.


“The new boards are going to save us a significant amount of time and effort on jobs moving forward. The lightweight nature means we can carry several boards at a time which is particularly helpful on large or multi-storey projects - and as a bonus, we can tile directly on top of it.”
