To get the most of your radiant heat installation, we recommend using PexPlates for a few main reasons:

1) They secure the tubing in place - Whether its a staple up or installed in wood-subfloor tracks, our pex plates will keep your pex tubing secure and increasing your BTUs at the same time.

2) Keep the heat up - Heat rises, but it also falls. PexPlates reflect and absorb the heat so it radiates better above the floor instead of heating the rooms below.

3) More BTUs - Aluminum is a conductor of heat, and the heavier the metal, the poorer it is. Most commercial plates you will see on the market are thick and made of steel. Below is a list of metals and their thermal conductivity:
