The practical and logistical benefits, as well as the price competitiveness offered by Circoflo’s range of underfloor heating solutions, have led to its ClipRail system being employed for a development of nine stylish dwellings in a beautiful rural location in West Yorkshire.
Carleton Lodge Development Ltd. was set up by Moscicki Property to construct the five terraced and four large, detached properties on land at Carleton near Pontefract, to offer future occupants comfortable and economic to run, high specification homes in a secluded setting. O’Neil Construction is leading the build, while locally based R. J. Jones is the installer of the plumbing and heating services throughout the new houses.
As the sub-contractor’s founder, Rob Jones confirms his decision to use ClipRail was based on the competitive quote given by Holmfirth based merchant, Holmebuild and the service support available through Circoflo, together with E Tupling: the underfloor heating specialist’s main distributor across the north of England.
Rob Jones commented:
“The Carleton project represented a significant contract for which I sought quotes from a number of sources. Apart from the price Holmebuild offered me, there was the attraction of rapid delivery via Tupling and good technical support. The individual CAD drawings for each plot worked out well, apart from places such as where some of the kitchen areas hadn’t been decided exactly when the original drawings were done. Overall I was pleased with the system.”
The Plumbing Manager for Holmebuild, Darren, added:
“We’ve been impressed with the direct contact we’ve had with Circoflo – which is one of the reasons we switched from our previous underfloor heating supplier and while we do not have sufficient space at present to keep Circoflo packs in stock, we are always able to get them on next day delivery from E Tupling.”
In the first five houses completed, R. J. Jones’ engineers have clipped the 12mm pipe runs down across Jablite insulation ready for the flooring contractor to lay a conventional wet screed, and connecting each circuit back to the plot specific manifolds provided as part of the Circoflo package. The 133mm pipe spacing and good thermal transmittance via the screed will help achieve very good occupant comfort while assisting the heating systems to run at optimum efficiency.
ClipRail is one of half a dozen UFH solutions offered by Circoflo to facilitate the installation of high performance and affordable heating within all types of project from extensions and refurbishments to apartment and other commercial developments.
