Special infrared foil heating provides 30% to 50% savings on your energy costs !!
Ceiling heating from Fortega Benelux B.V.
There are several methods for heating rooms with Fortega infrared foil fixed on the ceiling.
The heat that is radiated is ideal for rooms with a maximum height of 300 cm but can also be installed with a little more power in rooms from up to 500 cm high.
The first method used to install the infrared heating from Fortega is unique as it is placed out of sight. The energy costs are up to 30%-50% lower than the conventional methods.
Explanation method 1:
Step 1. A wooden framework with spaces in between is fixed to the ceiling.
Step 2. From section 2, reflection foil is glued between the slats.
Step 3. From section 2, insulation boards (Rockfon) are placed between the slats.
Step 4. The infrared heating foil from Fortega will be stapled to the slats.
Step 5. The electric wires between the spaces (these are factory-fitted) are assembled and fed to a junction box or thermostat.
Step 6. Plasterboard is now fixed to the entire ceiling.
Step 7. Plasterboard can be painted if necessary or sprayed with plaster.
Note: in bathrooms, preference is usually given to underfloor heating with infrared foil. This is placed under the bathroom tiles. It can also be fixed to the ceiling with system 1, but the finishing plates are more expensive because they have to be moisture-resistant.
Explanation method 2:
Ceiling panels can be fixed to the ceiling with small brackets. These panels are only delivered in white and are available in dimensions 60 x 60 cm and 60 x 120 cm. These ceiling panels are 3 cm thick. The electric wires must be fixed against or in the ceiling and fed to the power supply and thermostat.
Capacity of these panels is 75 watts and 150 watts. In general, more capacity is often experienced.
For living rooms, a capacity requirement of 40/45 watts per m2 is generally required, but this can be lower in bedrooms, e.g. 35 watts per m2.
Note: when, for instance, at least 900 watts is needed in a space with panel heating, then it is better to take 2 panels of 450 watts each, than 1 of 900 watts.
The heating foil under plasterboard from Fortega Benelux B.V. is the perfect heating source for your home. This heating is ideal for new construction and renovation projects.
The space is heated by means of a radiation heat, comparable with the sun's rays.
Ceiling heating is a more economical option compared to underfloor heating. There is less foil needed, because the strips are not placed against each other, which is the case with underfloor heating. Ceiling heating uses lower wattage than floor heating.
The ceiling heating ensures an excellent indoor climate.
The use of state-of-the-art control technology, such as sensors, wireless devices and thermostats, ensures the best energy-efficient use.
The big advantage of all the above ceiling systems is that there are no C.V. boilers necessary, therefore no maintenance is required and no annual subscription costs are required.
Our systems have a lifespan of more than 30 years!
Radiators can be moved from room to room and if you chose electricity for hot water and cooking, you will never run the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning.
Our infrared foil and panels are Tuv (Kemakeur) certified. They are not only safe, but also healthy for human beings, animals and plants. Allergy patients also benefit from the radiation heat, as the objects in the room are heated and warm air is not swirled up with pollen and dust particles.
The heating foil is an excellent addition to both small and large renovations in the house or in new construction as an alternative to conventional heating methods.
A reflective film is applied first on the (concrete) floor. Insulation material is applied. Then the infrared heating foil is spread out on top of this, which must be covered with a protective PE foil or a PE plate.
The final floor covering is applied to this. In general you can choose from tiling, laminate or carpet (tiles) without a foam bottom. A PVC floor is also recommended. This radiates the heat well. The infrared heating foil in the toilet and bathroom can be tiled over.
You can control the temperature by means of a thermostat.
