Wall Heating – Radiant Heat from the Wall

Warm walls create comfort

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 10 mm single pipe technology, each wall becomes a radiant heating element.

The required heating water temperatures are comparatively low compared to traditional cast iron radiators or sheet steel panel radiators. The comfort of radiant wall heating thus requires significantly less energy. The lack of radiators gives the interior design the greatest possible freedom of planning. Wall heating can be planned as a combination with ceiling heating in order to ensure sufficient heating output even if there are few ceiling or wall surfaces available for thermal activation. Wall cooling is possible in summer. The installation can be carried out using the plastering process or drywall.

Benefits of a Wall Heating

  • Pleasant radiant heat
  • The wall works as energy storage
  • Good choice for retrofitting
  • Avoid annoying radiators
  • Suitable for allergic sufferers
  • Wall cooling operation possible

Wall heating for clay plaster, gypsum plaster or lime plaster

Wall heating systems for plastering processes are the classic among radiant wall heating. The plaster wall heating can be implemented both with the BEKA capillary tube mat and with the 10 mm single tube technology. Small plaster thicknesses are sufficient to cover the heating pipes. This improves the heating behavior and the energy balance.

All common plastering materials can be used. Gypsum plasters, clay plasters and lime plasters are particularly suitable. The selection ensures flexibility in implementation. Nevertheless, recommendations regarding the project-specific, optimal plastering process should be obtained from the executing engineers or plumbers.

The effect of the natural radiant heat is additionally supported, especially when wall heating with clay plaster is used. Clay is also known to absorb smoke and other pollutants. The combination with clay plaster ensures a particularly natural feeling of warmth and reduces the proportion of allergens and pollutants in the room air.

Wall heating in drywall

Wall heating in drywall is quickly installed, creates smooth and straight walls and is therefore particularly suitable for retrofitting in old buildings or for modernizing individual rooms. For this variant, BEKA offers factory-made wall elements in standard dimensions with integrated capillary tube mats or integrated 10 mm PE-RT single tube.

The prefabricated wall heating elements in drywall are also the right choice for the thermal activation of individual, project-specific constructions.
