Heated/Chilled Plaster Ceiling with Capillary Tube Mats

Nature as a role model - The fine tubes of the BEKA capillary tube mats run through the plaster layer as energy-efficiently as the capillaries under the human skin transport energy and substances.

Excellent heating/cooling performance, considerable freedom of design

The fine dimensions of the capillary tubes with an outer diameter of only 3.35 mm enable a finish with low plaster thicknesses. 15 mm is enough. Thus, the thin capillary tubes lie directly below the ceiling surface. The construction can transport the heat with minimal loss and achieves cooling capacities of 76 W/m2 [tested according to EN 14240].

Plaster cooling ceilings with capillary tube mats are installed under raw concrete ceilings but also under suspended plasterboard ceilings. Curved ceiling surfaces are also not a problem for thermal activation. The small dimensions of the capillary tubes make the mat very flexible.

Nevertheless, cooling ceilings in the plastering process with the BEKA capillary tube mat are a cost-conscious, price-performance-oriented decision. This construction is used for office and administration buildings and for residential buildings.

Advantages of capillary tube plaster ceilings  

  • Highly efficient heat exchange
  • Very thin plaster layers of 15 mm
  • Acoustic ceilings possible
  • Best price performance ratio

Factory prefabrication, easy installation

BEKA capillary tube mats are precisely prefabricated in accordance with the dimensions required for your project. This shortens the assembly time and ensures optimal thermal activation of the surfaces.

Packed securely and labeled with clear information, the mats are delivered directly to the desired address. Pre-sorting the material on site is no longer necessary. After preparing the ceiling subsurface, the capillary tube mats are hung on plaster pins under the ceiling, fixed with adhesive tape or fastened with dowel hooks. The connection of the mats to each other and the connection of the control circuits to the supply pipes is usually done by thermal plastic welding. However, plug 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 plaster work alone determines a secure connection between the plaster and the raw concrete ceiling.

Low plaster thicknesses ensure high efficiency of the cooling ceiling

Ceiling heating and ceiling cooling with BEKA capillary tube mats have thin plaster thicknesses, can be implemented in acoustic ceiling structures, show an even surface temperature and react very quickly to temperature changes.
