Heat distribution of a wall heating
Benefits of a Wall Heating
- Pleasant radiant heat
- The wall stores some of the heat
- Good choice for retrofitting
- Avoid annoying radiators
- Suitable for allergic sufferers
Wall Heating – Radiant Heat from the Wall
Warm Walls Create Cosiness
A room with a radiant wall heating immediately spreads perceptible comfort. Warm walls are reminiscent of the cosy warmth emitted by tiled stoves. Through the installation of BEKA capillary tube mats or BEKA single pipe technology, each wall becomes a radiator. However, the required warm water temperatures are significantly lower compared with traditional cast-iron radiators or steel-plate panel heaters. The result: Thermal comfort is accompanied by less energy consumption. A radiant wall heating system can also be used to provide cooling in summer.
Radiant Wall Heating with Capillary Tube Mats or Single Pipe Technology as Plaster Systems
Radiant wall heating systems for plastering are a classic choice in wall heating technology. This kind of wall heating can be advantageously built with both BEKA capillary tube mats and BEKA single pipe technology. Thin plaster thicknesses are enough to cover the heating tubes what contributes to a rapid warm-up and to a low energy consumption.
Various plaster qualities can be used. Gypsum, clay and lime plasters are all suitable. The selection of plaster qualities ensures a high flexibilty for planning the interior design. Builders should take into account engineers or installers recommendations regarding the most suitable technology for the specific project.
In particular clay supports the effect of radiant heat. Clay is also known to absorb smoke and pollutants. The combination of radiant wall heating and clay plastering provides a pleasant warmth and at the same time reduces allergenic agents and the effect of pollutants in the room air.

Radiant Wall Heating in Drywall Construction
Radiant wall heating systems with prefabricated drywall elements are easy to install. They create smooth and straight walls and are therefore an excellent option when retrofitting individual rooms in old and existing buildings. BEKA offers factory-made, prefabricated construction panels in standard dimensions with integrated BEKA capillary tube mats or BEKA single polyethylene pipe technology for dry-lined wall heating.
Individual project-specific dry-lined constructions can also be thermally activated with BEKA panels.
