By combining the insulation performance of an expanded polystyrene board with a multidirectional tube-retention system, ISORAD V2 R3-R5 provides the perfect solution for embedding a radiant heating system in concrete in upper storeys or renovation projects.
NEW AND RENOVATION
Residential. Multi-unit. Commercial.
INSTALLATION: GREATER EFFICIENCY
Reduce your labour costs. By combining rigid insulation panels and a tubing retention system into a single product, the step of fixing the tubes to a wire mesh or subfloor is eliminated. This facilitates and accelerates installation of both insulation and the floor heating system.
IDEAL TO DELINEATE HEATING ZONES
Multidirectional tube retention system. Facilitates tube installation and the realization of separate heating zones from the hot water or glycol floor heating system.
SECURED AND RESISTANT PANELS
High-density interlocking panels. The four-sided interlocking system allows the panels to be quickly and easily positioned and ensures the alignment of the pucks for tubing installation.
REDUCES HEAT LOSS
Efficient thermal barrier. Prevents heat loss through the floor to maximize the efficiency of the radiant heating system on upper floors or when renovating existing slabs or floors.
Easy installation: Reduces the number of components and steps required to install the system.
Energy efficient. Maximizes occupant comfort.
ISORAD V2 | R3-R5 allows you to easily meet building code and construction requirements for energy-efficient standards, such as Energy Star and Passive House.
Can contribute to obtain LEED credits.
Compliance Certification is available upon request
ISORAD V2 | R3-R5 product is quick and easy to install.
To ensure maximum insulating performance, follow the recommended installation practices.
Using ISORAD V2 R3-R5 requires the installation of insulation and tubing prior to pouring concrete needed to cover the heating system.
ISORAD V2 R3 and R5 insulation panels are primarily intended for installation on a concrete slab or wooden subfloor. Not recommended for use over rough surfaces such as crushed stone.
For any existing floor installation in a renovation project, professional evaluation is recommended to ensure that the structure in place can bear the additional loads associated with the application, including concrete overload.
Tips and Tricks
To make the tubing turn easier, push or pull them so that they are in constant contact with the elevated pucks.
Use glue or fasteners to affix the panels at the junction of the walls and to prevent concrete from seeping beneath them.

*Tube 1/2″: Ø int. 1/2″, Ø ext. 5/8″
*Tube 5/8″: Ø int. 5/8″, Ø ext. 3/4″
For installation under a concrete slab-on-grade or below ground level, a minimum insulation value of R10 is generally required.
Refer to applicable codes requirements in your area.
For more information on slab-on-grade or below the ground slab application, see ISORAD V2 | R10-R15.
