Which product should I buy, Warmboard or Warmboard-R?
Warmboard and Warmboard-R offer the same superior heating performance. This is because both products are made with the same thick aluminum that covers the entire panel surface, including all straight and curved channels where tubing is placed. Thermodynamically identical, both products provide the same benefits of comfort and energy efficiency. Generally, new construction and new additions will use Warmboard while remodeled areas of a home will use Warmboard-R. There are many things to consider when choosing the appropriate product for your project. Our staff of construction professionals are trained and ready to guide you through this process.
What are the differences and similarities of Warmboard and Warmboard-R?
Warmboard is a radiant panel that is 1-1/8” thick, made of Douglas Fir 7 ply plywood, and is sold in full-faced tongue and groove 4’ x 8’ sheets. Warmboard-R is 13/16” thick, made of aspen and pine oriented strand board (OSB) and is sold in square edged 2’x 4’ panels. Both products have the same thick, highly conductive 1060 alloy aluminum, which is securely bonded to the entire surface. This 0.025” plate is continuous in all tubing grooves. Both products are approved for use in place of structural subfloor, although it should be noted that Warmboard-R has a reduced span rating and requires somewhat more labor due to its panel size. However, the thinner nature of Warmboard-R makes it particularly well suited for remodel projects where a lower profile is advantageous.
