Overboard dry screed panels are used as carriers for pipes in underfloor heating systems. Due to the physical properties of Overboard, the panels allow the heat to spread effectively across the heated area, which means that the installation of heat emission plates are not required. Panels are available in two configurations, as straights and as end returns.
The majority of the heated floor area will usually be covered by the straight boards which are 1.2 x 0.6m and 18mm high. Where feed pipes are to be laid, the end returns are to be utilised and these are 0.6 x 0.6m (exactly half the size of the straight runs) and hence make installation quick, as the cutting of the boards is minimised.
