Ampex is an insulated panel used for hydronic radiant floor (slab) systems both for interior and exterior applications. The combination of closed cell, molding expanded polystyrene (EPS) insulation, one of the highest performing energy efficient insulation materials available today, with a High Impact Polystyrene (HIPS) film, makes for a strong and resilient Ampex panel. The panel combines rigid insulation, a vapor barrier and PEX tubing locking mechanism into a single solution that significantly reduces installation time. The innovative patented panel design ensures that the tubing is completely encased in concrete and not pushed to the bottom of the panel through the use of bridge connectors. The larger contact area between the tubing and the concrete allows for increased heat transfer reducing the response time of the system and helping achieve desired temperatures faster.
Ampex panels have unique “mushroom” shaped nubs which locks the PEX tubing firmly in place (staples and zip ties not needed). The 2x4’ (610x1220mm) panels are light and manageable improving maneuverability in tight spaces and damage on site. The nub height and film accommodate multiple tube sizes and protects the tubing from damage and dislocation when the panel is walked upon by other trades. The large, four-sided interlocking shiplap connector system makes for a quick, easy and secure installation while maintaining the continuity of the vapor barrier and eliminating the need for a dedicated 6 mil. polyethylene (unless specifically required by local building code).
