Phase2 Advertisement Feature Heat home from the floor 34 Winter 2017 Phase2 Phase 1 Phase 2 Phase 3 Phase 4 JK is an underfloor heating company and was founded in 1994. It is best known for its revolutionary installation method, which uses a unique floor grinding machine – the ‘JK floorgrinder’ – and a range of selfdeveloped and manufactured underfloor heating products. Over the past twenty years, JK has acquired an incredible amount of knowledge on retro-fit underfloor heating systems and application methods. JK partners with a wide variety of companies in order to assist the end-customer in all their needs. Heating-engineers, plumbers, underfloor heating companies, builders, flooring companies and also architects are all companies who sell, specify or recommend JK’s cutting solution for their particular projects. JK believes that working with companies adds value to their partners’ businesses because of the unique service and narrow focus of just providing the cutting system. JK in-ground UFH JK’s in-ground UFH is a revolutionary underfloor heating system with no build-up height. The top screed is grooved using a specially designed and patented ‘JK floorgrinder’. The JK floorgrinder creates dust-free grooves in the screed into which the heating pipes are laid. JK’s inground warm water underfloor heating system goes into screed, concrete and dry-board, and is ideal for renovation and refurbishment projects. Zero build-up A desirable feature of JK in-ground UFH is that it does not add any floor build-up and the new floor finish can be applied directly on top. Moreover, it is more comfortable and energy efficient than traditional wet UFH systems, as the heating pipes are installed directly under the surface of the floor. This allows the floor temperature to rise much faster so the room temperature can be controlled more accurately than with traditional underfloor heating systems. Renovation, refurbishment and home improvement Improving their home by installing an eco-friendly water underfloor heating system into an existing property is the goal for many, but it is often prevented by practicalities such as ceiling height, costs and construction issues. JK offers a unique retro-fit water underfloor heating system; unique because there is no floor build-up, quick installation and moreover the heating pipe is in the top screed of your floor construction; a guaranteed quick heat response. Floor insulation The term insulation is often used once it comes to the renovation or improvement of a property. Insulation is connected with heating, efficiency, savings and eco-friendliness. Many people are concerned that they cannot have retro-fit underfloor heating because they’re not sure about the insulation of the floor construction. Many houses – most houses built before the 90s – do not have any insulation in the floor construction. The floor construction is often a concrete slab with screed on top. With this in mind, JK has designed a system (since 1994 in Germany and The Netherlands) which is especially suitable for this situation. The floor construction is accountable for about 10-15 per your with JK Floorheating! up
