Indianapolis, IN – October 2008 – Creatherm is pleased to announce Advance Construction as a distributor of the manufacturer’s foam building products.
Advance Construction, LLC will distribute the entire line of Radiant Floor Panels which are ideal for installing PEX hydronic tubing with considerable time savings. The T, S, and U45 floor panels are 2’ x 4’ and feature a staggered snap-tight grid for optimal tubingspacing. On-center points exist every three inches.
The S45 Floor Panel can support the installation of ½”, 5/8” or 3/4” PEX Tubing. This newer panel does not support installing tubing at 45 degree angles but offers greater “R” Value due to its thickness. This makes the product ideal for colder climates or new construction.
Creatherm’s established product, the S20 Floor Panel, can support running tubing at 45 degree angles with ease. The S20 Floor Panel is 1.5” thick and features 8 radial snap grids for optimal spacing of tubing. On-center points exist every six inches, and a snap-tight grid holds tubing in place.
All CreathermTM radiant floor panels are manufactured out of BASF Styropor® EPS. Styropor®, an expandable polystyrene (EPS) was invented by BASF in 1952 and today is a classic among the raw materials employed for cost-effective construction, as well as efficient and reliable packaging. The most important properties of Styropor® EPS include: excellent thermal insulation capacity, high compressive strength, outstanding impact absorption, low weight, and flexible design capabilities. The foam panels are also quiet, resistant to insects and mold, and virtually allergen free.
Headquarted in Indianapolis, Ind., Creatherm offers expanded polystyrene foam products to the
building industry. Building on a design alliance with Createc Corporation, manufacturers of ICF panels, Creatherm’s Radiant Floor Panels were their first product to reach market. Creatherm
is also a proud member of the Radiant Panel Association.
