Wall Heating Element with BEKA Capillary Mats

Heat-Based Modernisation in Dry-Lined Construction

Dry-lining always provides an excellent construction alternative, particularly when carrying out modernisation work. Wall heating systems installed in dry-lined structures create modern, smooth walls and the rooms can quickly be used again for living in. And wall heating systems can also, of course, be used in summer for cooling.

Wall Heating in Dry-Lining Systems with BEKA Capillary Mats

For wall heating in dry-lining systems, BEKA offers factory-made, prefabricated construction units in standard dimensions.

B.GK12 is the capillary tube-based, prefabricated construction unit, designed as a sandwich structure consisting of a plasterboard panel backed with capillary tube mats embedded in a polystyrene thermal insulation layer. These elements are connected via flexible hoses in the plug coupling assembly to the supply pipes in the heating circuit.

Advantages of Wall Heating in Dry-Lining Systems

  • Prefabricated components
  • Quick assembly and installation
  • Especially suitable for modernisation

Wall Heating in Dry-Lining Systems with BEKA Single Pipe Technology

The BEKA single pipe technology range includes a plasterboard panel with integrated single pipes. Slots are milled into the back of the panels. The single pipes fit precisely in the slots. With this solution, the individual elements are also connected to one another and to the heating circuit manifold using plug-in connector technology. Since the BEKA single pipes are diffusion-tight, the wall heating elements can also be easily integrated into existing heating systems.

Plug-In Connector Technology

Gypsum plasterboard does not have particularly good thermal conduction properties in itself. However, BEKA’s B.GK12 prefabricated element with capillary tube technology compensates for this “disadvantage” alone through its large number of heat transferring capillary tubes. With the dry-lining element with the BEKA single pipe technology, the individual heating tubes are integrated within slots milled into the plasterboard only a few millimetres from the ceiling surface and thus have almost direct heat transfer.
