Gaia heats homes at Berkeley’s Woodhurst Park development

  • 5 Jun 2017

Berkeley Homes has chosen Gaia underfloor heating for the Woodhurst Park development of 750 homes at Warfield in Berkshire.

The underfloor heating is discreet and means radiators aren’t required.

Gaia’s own specialist teams are undertaking the installation, testing the commissioning on site. The team often works on three or four homes at a time, working on the plots as they become available.

Gas boilers are used at Woodhurst Park with the water flow in the underfloor heating system controlled by Gaia manifolds and thermal actuators. Digital controllers and thermostats also form part of the package.

The wet underfloor heating system used is based on Gaia’s three-layer oxygen diffusion barrier pipe. Laid into screed, this comprises an EVOH oxygen barrier outer layer, a glue layer and PE-Xa inner layer. It is easy to bend and secure and accommodates temperatures of up to 80°C and eight bar pressure.
