To further meet the needs of the hydronic radiant heating market, Uponor announces two new products that will revolutionize radiant floor heating installations for residential applications: Radiant Ready 30E™ and Fast Trak™. Ideal for remodels, retrofits and new construction, the Radiant Ready 30E is a complete radiant mechanical room designed in a compact, preassembled, easy-to-install panel. The installer simply hangs the panel on a wall and connects the tubing, thermostat and electrical power. To accompany the panel, Fast Trak knobbed mats provide a faster, easier method for installing crosslinked polyethylene (PEX) tubing in overpour applications for basements, recreation rooms, bathrooms or any area of a home. The Radiant Ready 30E includes a 30,000 BTU/h electric boiler, an Uponor Engineered Plastic (EP) Heating Manifold, a pump, expansion tank, pressure-relief valve, isolation valves, thermostat and air vent — all preassembled and prewired into the unit. Fast Trak products are available in two models: Fast Trak 0.5 and Fast Trak 1.3i. Fast Trak 0.5 is only ½" thick, eliminating the need to alter baseboards, moldings or doors. The product is made for 5/16" PEX tubing and features an adhesive backing for easy installation to a slab or subfloor. Fast Trak 1.3i is 1¼" thick. It holds 3/8" or ½" PEX tubing and includes insulation already in the mat, eliminating the added time and cost of installing insulation under the tubing.
