The Grant Uflex underfloor heating range welcomes several new component additions. Two new controls will be available to suit both the Uflex and Uflex MINI underfloor systems and the PEX-AL-PEX pipe will also be available from Grant UK for use with Uflex installations.
The Uflex Neostat V2 and Uflex Edge are user-friendly thermostats with a clear display, easy navigation and a clean, stylish look. Both operate with the new Uflex UH8 Wiring Centre to provide homeowners with complete control of their underfloor heating system at the touch of a button.
The Uflex Neostat V2 is both a programmer and a room thermostat which is suitable for single and multi-zone installations. With flexible programming, key locking function and self-learning preheat functionality, the Uflex Neostat V2 provides homeowners with sophisticated operation while also be straightforward to use. When paired to the neoHub via a WiFi connection, the Uflex Neostat V2 can then be controlled remotely through the neoHub app which gives homeowners control of their system anytime and anywhere.
The second new programmable room thermostat being launched by Grant UK, the Uflex Edge, shares many of the features and benefits that the Uflex Neostat V2 has. The Uflex Edge has additional functionality which allows for greater automation within the home. Pairing with wireless air sensors, the Uflex Edge can accurately sense temperature changes within a room and is ideally suited to open plan properties. The Uflex Edge also has Modbus connectivity to allow the thermostat to integrate with third party home automation and building management systems.
In addition to these new controls, Grant UK is also adding a new type of pipe to its underfloor heating range. PEX-AL-PEX Pipe will be available in October for use with installations of the Uflex underfloor heating system. The pipe is 16mm in diameter and is compatible with all the Uflex system components. Easy to work with, the PEX-AL-PEX pipe offers the additional benefit of being suitable for potable hot and cold water systems allowing the pipe to be used for underfloor heating and elsewhere in a property’s infrastructure.
“These new controls and the PEX-AL-PEX pipe are further developments to Grant’s underfloor heating range,” comments Paul Wakefield, Grant UK’s Managing Director.
“The new controls have both the installer and end-user in mind, being straightforward to install and operate, and allowing homeowners greater control of their system to achieve their desired home comfort. Meanwhile, the addition of the PEX-AL-PEX pipe is in response to installer demand – our installers asked for this type of pipe to be supplied as part of the Uflex underfloor heating range and we have listened. With the new controls and PEX-AL-PEX pipe, Grant’s underfloor heating and package solutions offering is more comprehensive than ever before.”
