3/8" PEX Tubing with Oxygen Barrier can be used for the following radiant heating applications:
1. Non-Structural Concrete Slabs (Non-reinforced, 1.25"-2" thick). Gypsum or other thermal mass systems over subfloor. 3/8" PEX Tubing is secured to the subloor (i.e. plywood) with plastic clips, pipe clamps or other approved fastening method.
2. Below-Subfloor (Staple-up) and Above-Subfloor ("Sandwich") Systems with and without aluminum heat transfer plates.
3. Sleeper-type systems (above subfloor) with and without heat transfer plates.
4. Engineered Subfloors and Modular Board Systems. 3/8" PEX Tubing is secured by into grooved channels of the plywood or foam board subfloor panels.
Everhot Oxygen Barrier PEX Tubing can be installed using either Crimp type connection system (Crimp Tool, Crimp-style PEX Fittings and Copper Crimp Rings) or Clamp/Cinch type connection system (Clamp Tool, Crimp-style PEX Fittings and Stainless Steel Clamps). Also compatible with Push-Fit connection system (such as SharkBite), Viega Press type system and Compression type PEX fittings.
This product is a replacement for:
As well as 3/8" RadiantPEX (Watts) and ViegaPEX oxygen barrier pipe in similar lengths.
PEX Tubing colors and packaging may vary by manufacturer.
3/8" PEX Tubing with Oxygen Barrier is common for thin slabs, where thickness directly represents the load on the joist system, and is usually installed in such areas of the house as kitchets and bathrooms. Due to its' greater flexibility than of the other PEX tubing sizes, it allows for closer spacing of the tubing runs, and therefore, more even heat distribution. However, its' smaller diameter limits the circuit run to 200-250ft max, depending on the application.
