•THE WHOLESALER® — MARCH 2011


2011 T


he VersaTherm system is unlike any radiant system on the market! The panels snap together in minutes, sav-


ing significant labor costs. Basement and upper floor retrofits are equally easy because the panels are pre-insulated and water-resis- tant. Convenient 1/2" tubing allows for fewer circuits and smaller manifolds. Metal covers protect the tubing against puncture and dam- age during and after installation of the floor covering. The highly conductive metal surface maxi-


mizes system output and promotes an even temperature distribution across the entire floor surface. The low-profile panels are only 3/4" thick, minimizing common construction is- sues seen in over-pour installations.


Simple to install VersaTherm is easily installed on upper levels


or in basements and is equally well suited to renovations or new construction. VersaTherm panels snap together simply and are self-con- tained. Heat transfer plates, insulation, and channels for the tubing are all built-in.


Versatherm’s benefits Just A few of


• Snaps together – labor saving • 1/2" tubing – longer loops, fewer circuits • Tubing is protected against damage • Main panels are pre-insulated and low profile (3/4") – great for retrofits


• Highly conductive surface – high heat output and even temperature distribution


• Water-resistant – great for basements • Easy to cut if necessary to fit tight spaces and around obstructions


• Low thermal mass – quick output response


SUPPLIER PROFILE


Legend Hydronics VersaTherm™ snap-fit radiant floor system


The VersaTherm panels connect together


in three steps, virtually without tools and form a uniform layer over the top of the structural sub-floor or concrete. First, the panels’ tubing channels (grooves) are aligned to form a path in which the tubing is routed to and from the radiant manifold, circuit by circuit. The radiant tube is then easily in- stalled by pushing or stepping it into the tub- ing channels of the VersaTherm panel. Last, the metal tubing shields and return panel covers are attached over the top of the tubing and return panels. It’s that easy! The lightweight panels are easy to handle


and have a low profile at only 3/4" thick. No additional structural reinforcement is re- quired and floor height issues are minimized which means significantly reduced “prep- work.” They are made of moisture and mold- resistant materials (plastic, foam insulation and galvanized steel) and cutting, if any, is limited to the returns at the end of each row. Carpet as well as floating floor systems can be directly installed over VersaTherm, and the system readily adapts to ceramic tile and hardwood floor covering.


Efficient to use VersaTherm’s superior performance does


not sacrifice efficiency. It uses the combina- tion of a metal upper surface with high ther- mal conductivity, and built-in insulation underneath, to maximize heat output at low water temperatures. The metal surface also promotes an even temperature distribution across the floor, minimizing cold spots. The low thermal mass allows for a quick re- sponse to changing load requirements. VersaTherm is unmatched in its ability to op- timize system efficiency. n
