GAIA Climate Solutions provide the warmth in luxury London development for Berkeley Homes

DEVImat electric underfloor heating (UFH) mats and DEVIlink wireless control systems

from GAIA Climate Solutions add the finishing touch to a major development in central London for St Edward Homes Ltd which is part of the Berkeley Group.

High quality finishes abound with generous use of natural marble flooring in the bathrooms of each apartment. Although marble is naturally cold to the touch, the DEVImat heating element – embedded within the adhesive directly beneath the tiles – ensures a warm, comfortable surface.

Controlled with the DEVIlink system

Controlled with the DEVIlink system, the UFH is independent of the main heating system which means there is the option of having a warm bathroom floor all year round – and not just when the central heating is on.

On this project, the DEVImat system was chosen because of its ability to respond rapidly to changes in temperature control. Traditional ‘wet’ UFH systems are embedded deep within the floor screed, heating the floor itself to deliver a continuous, even warmth. This is ideal in most living areas, but in bathrooms and other areas where heating is required intermittently and for short periods, a fast response time is often desirable. DEVImat satisfies this requirement by locating the heating element near the surface of the floor; response times are therefore very fast and the floor is warm to the touch minutes after switching on. 

The system is controlled via the innovative DEVIlink colour touch screen panel which communicates wirelessly with individual floor thermostats to give precise temperature control.

DEVIlink not only provides accurate temperature control but also includes presets which can be programmed to modify schedules during the week or while the user is away.
