3/4″ PEX Tubing with Oxygen Barrier can be used for the following heating applications:
1. Structural Concrete Slabs (Rebar or wire mesh reinforced, 4-6″ thick). Slab-On-Grade Systems (larger garages, warehouses and other storage and commercial facilities). 3/4″ PEX Tubing is secured on top of the reinforcement with wire ties, zip ties or clips.
2. Snow Melt Systems (reinforced structural slabs). Similar to radiant heated slabs, but does not require insulation and requires a proper drainage system.
3. Copper tube finned baseboard radiators, cast iron and aluminum radiators.
4. Fan coil units and water to air heat exchnagers.
