Production Begins On New Creatherm T45 Radiant Floor Panel
Whitestown, IN – The third panel from Creatherm TM is ready for market and combines benefits of its first two radiant floor panels into one product.
The T45 Floor Panel is a one-inch thinner version of the S45 Floor Panel. The lower height profile makes the snap-tight grid ideal for over-pour or retro fit applications where a thicker panel cannot always be used.
The T45 Floor Panel is 2’ x 4’ x 1.8” thick and features a staggered snap-tight grid for optimal tubing spacing.
On-center points exist every three inches. The T45 Floor Panel can support the installation of 1/2”, 5/8” or 3/4” PEX Tubing.
The new panel will be manufactured at existing Creatherm production facilities as well as Aptco, LLC on the West Coast. Customers now have the ability to split orders between the S45 and T45 by bundle quantity.
All Creatherm TM 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 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.
