Drywall Ceiling Heating & Cooling

Ceiling heating and cooling with our drywall systems uses the specific advantages of dry construction. The ceilings are assembled in a short time and in just a few steps. In the case of modernization in particular, the affected rooms are quickly available again. A drywall ceiling can be thermally activated using BEKA capillary tube mats, serpentine copper tubes or 10 mm single tube technology.

Utilise drywall standards for a quick and safe installation

For the installation of suspended drywall ceilings, there are largely standardised assembly instructions and specific advice available from the manufacturers. These standardised construction methods result in a correspondingly simplified procedure and a reduction in the work steps when installing ceiling heating and ceiling cooling in dry construction.

The installation of BEKA capillary tube mats, meandering copper tubes or the 10 mm single tube technology fits exactly into the construction processes of standard structures of suspended drywall ceilings. The interfaces between the dry construction and installation trades are clearly regulated. This is an important prerequisite for adhering to planned construction times and for achieving good heating / cooling results.

Advantages of ceiling heating / cooling in drywall

  • Fast installation according to drywall standards
  • Few assembly steps
  • Implementation with capillary tube mats, 10 mm single tube technology and copper tube possible
  • Particularly suitable for retrofitting

Which drywall system is suitable for heated / chilled ceilings?

The thermal conductivity of drywall panels has a decisive effect on the achievable heating and cooling performance. Depending on the qualities of drywall panels available on the market, planning can use this to optimise the cost-performance ratio of ceiling heating and ceiling cooling.

The use of plasterboard is widespread. The heat conduction is further improved by adding graphite. It is possible to use plain or perforated plasterboard panels for the installation. For the ceiling design, architects and specialist engineers can use the entire range of products on the market.

Ready-to-build plasterboard with integrated pipes

In standard thermally activated drywall ceilings, the heat-conducting pipes of the BEKA capillary tube mats, serpentine copper tubes or single pipes are located on the back of the drywall panels for good thermal conductivity and are hydraulically connected in the ceiling cavity.

We also manufacture drywall panels with integrated capillary tubes or integrated 10 mm PE-RT tubes. In our series of prefabricated elements, drywall panels with capillary tube mats and polystyrene insulation in standard dimensions are also offered.

In order to improve the reaction speed of the ceiling heating and ceiling cooling, additional insulation material can also be placed on the heat-carrying pipes in the standard construction.

Standardised components for dry construction

Whether with BEKA capillary tube mats, meandering copper pipes or single pipe technology on top - standard drywall ceilings can be thermally activated without any problems. A good heat-conducting contact between the heat-carrying pipes and the plasterboard is important for energy efficiency.
