A new course on underfloor heating systems is now available to engineers and installers who visit Grant UK’s Training Academy. This new course, which follows the recent launch of Grant’s Uflex Underfloor Heating range, further expands the selection of product and industry training courses on offer from the Company.
The Grant Uflex Underfloor Heating course is a one-day course open to domestic heating installers who either have previous UFH experience or who are new to this form of heating. In addition to exploring the basic principles of UFH, the course also covers system design, installation and commissioning as well as the accompanying controls. The objective of the training course is to educate installers with an understanding of underfloor heating as well as the relevant considerations that must be factored in before, during and after installation.
Also included within the course content is an introduction to Grant’s underfloor heating range. It provides an overview of the different types of pipe available from Grant UK as well as the various systems available within the Uflex range. This includes the Uflex screeded systems, the heat emission plate systems and the low profile Uflex MINI systems.
The course combines high level detail on the specifics of working with Grant’s underfloor heating range, as well as providing a general technical context for working with these systems. From understanding how UFH operates and explaining setback controls, through to floor covering resistances and pipework configurations, Grant’s Uflex Underfloor Heating course is designed to equip installers with a thorough knowledge of this increasingly popular heating system.
Furthermore, candidates who successfully complete and pass the course will be eligible to become Grant UK G1 Accredited Underfloor Heating Installers. With their G1 Accreditation for underfloor heating, these installers will be able to have a company profile on the Grant UK website as well as having access to leads which are directed into Grant UK’s Renewable Team who handle the design service support. It is hoped that through their underfloor heating training course, Grant UK can develop a network of accredited G1 installers who can meet the underfloor heating installation needs of customers throughout England, Scotland and Wales.
The course is currently available at Grant UK’s Training Academy in Devizes, Wiltshire, and it will also be held off-site at Grant’s other training locations later in the year.
