Underfloor Heating Pipe
Underfloor heating pipes are the core of any underfloor heating (UFH) system. They circulate warm water beneath the floor and evenly distribute heat throughout the room.
Our range of underfloor heating pipes can be used for a variety of heating or plumbing projects. Made from highly durable, quality material, our pipes are designed for flexibility and maximum heat transfer, while remaining leak free and airtight. Built to last a lifetime, our UFH pipes are a popular choice for new builds, house refurbishments or single room renovation projects.
Quality Underfloor Heating pipe
Choosing the right type of underfloor heating pipe will ensure a smooth, hassle-free installation and a quality end result. Our pipes come in a variety of options, widths, and lengths so that you can build a system that is tailored to your installation and budget.
What type of pipe is best for underfloor heating?
The best types of pipes for underfloor heating are Polybutylene, Pex and Pert-Al-Pert multilayer. These are three of the most widely used types of UFH pipework. Our range includes all three pipes, find out more about each type:
Cost effective, robust pipe that's highly effective at transmitting heat. Ideal for use in traditional screed floors and retrofit systems. Pex Pipe is a triple layered barrier pipe made from plastic with an oxygen barrier (EVOH) layer as well as a layer of adhesive.
Highly flexible, versatile pipe that’s easy to install, the lack of an aluminium layer means this pipe is very malleable and easy to manipulate.
Our most popular multilayer composite pipe with an aluminium core. The aluminium lining gives the pipe a memory once this pipe is formed into a shape, it will retain the shape making for a straightforward install.

We also stock a range of high quality UFH tools, designed to make the installation of water-based systems quick and easy. As well as a selection of stainless steel manifolds and Heatmiser thermostats.
Can underfloor heating pipes burst?
A leak or rupture in an underfloor heating pipe is highly unlikely, especially when quality pipes are used and the system is installed correctly. System damage may occur if the underfloor heating pipe is cut or damaged during the installation process. This is why our range of UFH pipes are made from robust, durable materials that are easy to install. If a pipe is accidentally damaged after installation, then it can be repaired to stop any leaks.
What size pipe is best for underfloor heating?
We recommend using pipes with a diameter of 10, 15 or 16mm for underfloor heating. Each size offers a level of flexibility which speeds up the installation process.
How long do underfloor heating pipes last?
Underfloor heating pipes have a projected lifespan of 50 years, but many will last for 100 years or longer. In comparison to the average lifespan of a radiator, which is between 8 and 12 years, underfloor heating is much more economical.
Can you connect underfloor heating pipes to radiators?
It is entirely possible to install underfloor heating alongside an existing radiator system. This is a great option if you don’t want to replace the whole UFH system in your home. How it is controlled will depend on the type of system you install, however there are many flexible UFH systems on offer that allow for hybrid UFH and radiator systems. All of our hardwired thermostats can replace your existing central heating controls. This allows you to program any radiators you have with our slimline thermostats. Or, if you prefer to control your heating wirelessly, you can use the Neo Stats and Neo Hub.
