‘FUSI’ for Intelligent Underfloor Heating
SIG Performance Technology, the specialist provider of acoustic, fire and thermal solutions, has launched to market a new intelligent underfloor heating system which combines high quality products with advanced technology to deliver FUSI – a fully integrated underfloor heating package designed to overcome the common challenges faced with the design and installation of traditional wet systems.
By bringing into a fully integrated package the multiple elements which are required within an underfloor heating programme into a fully integrated package; FUSI provides a single point contact solution which is Part E compliant and offers a number of design, installation and cost benefits.
Managed by SIG Performance Technology from inception to completion, FUSI systems are developed as bespoke solutions in response to specific project requirements. While this Professional Indemnity backed approach offers developers and specifiers peace of mind regarding performance and quality, an accredited network of FUSI installers protects the integrity of the design once on-site. This complete process is managed by the SIG Performance Technology team.
Ideal for luxury, high-rise developments, FUSI removes the need to coordinate multiple trades on-site when installing an intelligent underfloor heating system. Mat Norris, Business Development Manager at SIG Performance Technology, explains: “High tech underfloor heating systems are known to provide excellent thermal performance with equally accurate control. However, as the components span a number of trades, including screeding, flooring, joinery and M&E, there can often be challenges in terms of interfacing on-site and issues regarding a system warranty. FUSI directly addresses all of these. From floor slab to floor finish, FUSI is one system with a single guarantee.”
All FUSI systems are designed using proven solutions from within the wider SIG portfolio as follows: HVAC, Performance Technology Integrated Control Strategy (P-TICS), Underfloor Heating System, Prefabricated Utilities Cupboard (PUC), Acoustic Floating Floor System and wide choice of floor finishes. Specified and procured as a complete system design, FUSI streamlines the supply chain and helps to drive on-site efficiencies through a single installation package.
Mat concludes: “The bespoke nature of the system gives developers and specifiers access to the right performance qualities combined with the most suitable floor finish from an aesthetic perspective. Traditionally this level of design flexibility would complicate project delivery, yet FUSI delivers the ultimate in freedom but with the absolute best in terms of a total system guarantee.”
