    Q:How far apart do you place the plates
    by|Sep 7, 2023
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  Andres, they can be placed 2-3 inches apart. It is important that they do not touch or overlap, and this can cause a clicking noise.

      Q:I can't get 1/2" T50 staples to penetrate the heat plate. I tried an Arrow T50X TacMate Heavy Duty Staple Gun, and then a Stanley TRE550Z Electric Stapler on both the min and max settings. Almost every single staple crumples against the plate, or only penetrates halfway through. What am I doing wrong? Frustrated and about to return the heat plates.

      A:  Use a pneumatic staple gun. It's not the fault of the heat plates.

        A:  Update: Solved the problem with Arrow BN1810 5/8" brad nails in the Stanley Electric Stapler. Works like a charm.

          A:  Jester, Most people use a pneumatic staple gun. These are available for rent in many rental businesses. The staples are more narrow and slightly rounded so they drive in better. I hope that this helps.

              Markedly improved efficiency
              Using these great transfer plates noticeably increased the efficiency of my radiant heat system, as installed in the basement up under the floor for my renovation in a 70 year old house. Excellent product!!!

                  Worked as expected for radiant heat. Shorter plates helped in right truss spaces.

                  One size does not fit all. There is no heat transfer if pex isn’t touching the alumium!

                  Very small by comparison to others. Required more of the product and thus an increase in overall project cost.

                  Daniel, Check the gauge of the other heat plates some are much thinner and offer less heat transfer so the initial additional cost may well be offset by energy savings over time Also the smaller plates allow for easier installation, and do not require trimming in most applications. There are pros and cons to the longer heat plates.

                  Worked well....... I read other reviews which wished that the sheets came in longer sections. For me, the 11" length worked very well, because I had to work around wires, pipes, etc. I used about a 6"-10" gap between individual plates. I used these heat plates after the plastic clips that were used originally, failed....possible due to heat fatigue? I installed them used a staple gun, and heavy duty staples did NOT work as well as normal staples. as they did not penetrate the metal (perhaps due to thickness of staples?). When I needed smaller sections, I cut the metal with a hacksaw or tin snips. if you need to make such a cut, after cutting, I'd recommend using pliers to bend the cut edge away from where the radiant heat tubing will be, just to be sure that any sharp or rough edge won't affect the tubing during or after installation. I saw immediate, and significant improvement......
