A Dream Team Introduces itself

Nature as a model – The fine tubes in BEKA capillary tube mats permeate the plaster layer as energy efficiently as the capillaries transporting energy and material under the human skin.

High Performance and Considerable Design Flexibility

The narrow dimensions of the capillary tubes with an outer diameter of just 3.35 mm only require small plaster thickness: 15 mm is enough. The capillary tubes, which are just 3.35 mm wide, therefore lie directly beneath the ceiling surface. This construction can transport the heat with minimum loss and achieves cooling capacities of 76 W/m2 when tested according to EN 14240.

Plaster cooling and heating ceilings with capillary tubes can be installed under both concrete floor slabs and suspended plasterboard ceilings. Even curved ceiling surfaces can be easily activated with BEKA capillary tube mats, as the small dimensions of the capillary tubes make the mats very flexible.

Plaster cooling and heating ceilings with BEKA capillary tube mats are the cost-conscious, price-performance-oriented option. This construction is used in all types of buildings, ranging from office and administration buildings to residential buildings.

A typical BEKA capillary tube mat for plaster heating and cooling ceilings is the K.S15.

Alternative Solution for Plasterboard Ceilings

Factory Prefabrication and Easy Installation

BEKA capillary tube mats are precisely prefabricated in accordance with the dimensions required for your project. This shortens installation time and ensures maximum surface use.

Mats will be delivered to your construction site safely packaged and labelled according to your requirements. It is not necessary to pre-sort the material on the construction site. After preparing the ceiling subsurface, the capillary tube mats are either suspended from the ceiling using plaster pins, fixed with adhesive tapes or fastened via dowel hooks. Thermal plastic welding is usually used to connect the mats to one another and the control circuits to the supply pipes, but plug-in connectors or press connections can also be used.

Since the capillary tube mats themselves do not place any loads on the plaster layer, the execution of the plasterwork is entirely decisive in ensuring a secure bonding between the plaster and the concrete floor slab.

Advantages of Capillary Tube Plaster Ceilings  

  • Highly efficient heat exchange
  • Minimal plaster layers - only 15 mm
  • Best price-performance ratio

Plaster ceilings with BEKA capillary mats have thin plaster thicknesses, can even be installed in acoustic ceiling structures, have a uniform surface temperature and respond to temperature changes very quickly.
