Application: Comfort cooling and heating systems for ceiling or plastered / dry line wall applications.
System: Climasystem PP-R Grids, with EVOH oxygen tight barrier acc. DIN 4726
Material: fusiolen PP-R, with oxygen tight barrier acc. DIN 4726.
The concept of the aquatherm climasytem is for the comfort of an occupied area: thermally well-balanced zones are created.
The principle of the aquatherm climasystem technology is gentle radiant heat from large surfaces delivering comfort and warmth to the occupants of a room. Since the heating surfaces are relatively large the surface temperature can be kept low reducing air movement. Radiant heat is felt directly, this is one advantage over small hot radiators that create high convectional currents warming the air before the occupants.
Since the system has a low flow temperature (25 - 35⁰C) it is ideally suited to being used with eco-friendly fully condensing boilers or alternative energy sources like a heat pump, solar, geothermal and heat recovery systems.
Besides the thermal advantages there is the added benefit of reduced air movement. The result is reduced dust movement with stabilized humidity. In conclusion wall heating, resp. ceiling heating, saves 25 – 30% of energy costs and contributes to a healthy environment.
Of course the aquatherm climasystem for wall and ceiling can be combined with each other.
Moderate temperature (20 - 35⁰C) with large heating surfaces generates steady radiation for the user.
Direct heat radiation on the human body delivers a comfortable warm feeling. The room air temperature can be reduced in opposite to conventional heating technologies (radiators / convectors) and still provide comfort for the occupant.

More than three decades experience in the production and application of underfloor heating systems as well as the continuous development to achieve energy saving and efficient technology, make aquatherm one of the most experienced and globally successful manufacturers of underfloor heating.
The performance of an underfloor heating system is mainly determined by the quality of the installed heating pipe. The aquatherm underfloor heating pipe made of PE-RT is characterised by the following:
• excellent creep strength even at higher temperatures
• smooth inner pipe surface
• low friction loss
• high heat stabilized
• corrosion resistant
• outstanding resistance to chemical
• high flexibility
• high impact rate
• less sound of flow
• oxygen-tight due to EVOH-coating acc. DIN 4726
aquatherm® industrial floor heating offers a perfect alternative to more usual types of heating.
• fast amortisation
• total freedom of design
• optimum use of the industrial hall due to embedded heating pipes in the floor
• smooth and constant heat output
• convenient room and working conditions
• dust reduction
The weld-in saddle technique, developed by aquatherm, provides the connection of heating pipes to a continuous distribution pipe by reverse return (Tichelmann-principle). The distribution pipes for this connection technique are made of fusiotherm®-pipes and weld-in saddles. The distance of the saddles is determined by the laying-distance of the heating pipes. For the connection of the oxygen tight heating pipes aquatherm® SHT-transition adapters are applied. These allow optimum connection of the fusiotherm®-pipe system with the aquatherm® SHT system (SHT = sliding sleeve technology)
