The BEKA single pipe technology is suitable for installing near-surface concrete component activation systems under difficult site conditions and at low ambient temperatures. The robust and durable PE-RT pipes remain flexible even at low outside temperatures and are not liable to fracture.
The single pipes, which are just 10 mm thick, lie below the top reinforcement and thus close to the finished surface of the concrete floor slab. This therefore ensures a rapid thermal response by the floor slab. For the same supply temperatures, significantly higher cooling and heating capacities are achieved than with conventional concrete core activation (CCA) with thick tubes.
The technology is suitable for installation in in-situ concrete ceilings as well as for thermally activating precast concrete elements.
