Oklahoma City, OK – May 2008 – CreathermTM is pleased to announce that BuildBlock Building Systems will distribute the manufacturer’s foam building products throughout the United States using their established distributor network and online platform. BuildBlock Building Systems, LLC, will distribute the S45 Radiant Floor Panel ideal for installing PEX hydronic tubing with considerable time and labor savings.
The S45 Floor Panel is 2’ x 4’ x 2.8” thick and features a staggered snap-tight grid for optimal tubing spacing. On-center points exist every three inches. The S45 Floor Panel can support the installation of 1/2”, 5/8” or 3/4” PEX Tubing. This panel does not support installing tubing at 45 degree angles but offers greater “R” Value due to its thickness, making the product ideal for colder climates or new construction.
Creatherm TM radiant floor panels are now 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 Whitestown, Ind., a northwest suburb of Indianapolis, Creatherm TM 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 TM is also a proud member of the Radiant Panel Association.
