This month Warmboard announced a new radiant heating panel, Warmboard-R, that is thinner than its other panel, making it ideal for remodels and renovations. Warmboard-R is 13/16″ thick (as compared to 1-1/8″ for the standard version) and provides the same radiant heat performance.
Warmboard received feedback from customers that they wanted a slimmer panel, so the company delivered. It can be used for in-floor and ceiling applications.
Warmboard-R has a square edge and is made with aspen and pine OSB in 2’x4′ panels. The surface has 1060 alloy aluminum to create a uniform layer of warmth. This provides higher output from lower water temperatures, according to Warmboard.
