Wall Heating in Dry Construction Systems

Thermal modernization in drywall

In renovation and modernization, the installation of dry construction systems has prevailed. The retrofitting of wall heating in drywall creates modern, smooth walls and the modernized rooms can be used again quickly. BEKA offers two systems for installing wall heating with dry construction elements:

Wall heating drywall with capillary tube mats

For drywall wall heating with capillary tube mats, BEKA produces prefabricated elements in standard dimensions.

The prefabricated element with capillary tube mats is designed as a sandwich construction. A plasterboard with a capillary tube mat on the back is embedded in a styrofoam thermal insulation layer. The dry construction elements are connected to the supply pipes of the heating circuits via flexible hoses with plug-in couplings.

Benefits of wall heating drywall

  • Prefabricated components
  • Quick and clean installation
  • Particularly suitable for retrofitting and modernization

Alternative Wall Heating System

Wall heating drywall with 10 mm PE-RT single pipe

For the wall heating drywall with 10 mm PE-RT single pipe technology, a prefabricated plasterboard with integrated heating pipes is used. The plasterboard is milled in on the back. The heating pipes are precisely positioned in the milled channels. Just like with the capillary mat system, the individual elements are connected to one another and to the heating circuit distributor via plug connectors. Since the PE-RT pipes are diffusion-tight, the wall heating elements can be integrated into an existing heating system without the risk of corrosion damage.

Standard plasterboard itself does not have particularly good thermal conductivity. In the case of drywall with capillary tube mats, this problem is compensated for by the large number and narrow spacing of the heat-transferring capillary tubes. With wall heating with 10 mm PE-RT single pipe technology, the individual heating pipes are milled into the plasterboard only a few millimeters away from the wall surface and thus enable direct heat transfer and by this a high level of efficiency for drywall heating.
