Uponor Quick Trak Radiant Heating Flooring System
By: Danny Lipford
Danny takes a look at the Uponor radiant flooring system installed during Today’s Addition. He talks with the installer, Wes Sisco to see how it was installed. Wes demonstrates how the system known as Quick Trak® works.
First, treated plywood is attached to the concrete slab floor. Next, the Uponor 1/2” plywood Quick Trak, that has a heat emission plate on one side and a dovetail groove on the other, is installed. 5/16” plastic PEX tubing is then inserted in the groove in the track and connected to a small hot water heater. Finally, prefinished hardwood flooring is installed over the Quick Trak.
