The combination of molding expanded polystyrene (EPS) insulation, one of the highest performing energy efficient insulation materials available today, with a High Impact Polystyrene (HIPS) film, makes for a strong and resilient Ampex panel. The panel combines rigid insulation, a vapor barrier and PEX tubing locking mechanism into a single solution that significantly reduces installation time.
The innovative patented panel design ensures that the tubing is completely encased in concrete and not pushed to the bottom of the panel through the use of bridge connectors. The larger contact area between the tubing and the concrete allows for increased heat transfer reducing the response time of the system and helping achieve desired temperatures faster.
The Ampex panels have unique “mushroom” shaped nubs which locks the PEX tubing firmly in place (staples and zip ties not needed). The 2’x4’ (610x1220mm) panels are placed on compacted stone/gravel. PEX tubing is then easily inserted into the panels simply by walking in the tubing. Concrete is poured on top of the panel to the required thickness (as per local code) encasing the tubing, nubs and any steel reinforcement (optional – rebar or welded wire mesh).
