Giacomini UK has announced a partnership with a leading screed manufacturer to provide a combined ten year system warranty. This will offer a level of assurance to customers that is not offered by another company within the industry.
The partnership allows Giacomini to offer premium, top level cover to its customers. Giacomini’s installed UFH systems already boast a ten year system warranty but this previously had not extended to the screeding. However, thanks to the new agreement, the screed work will be covered through a combined warranty package.
The combined warranty is available on Giacomini’s new Spider low profile UFH system, which can achieve a total system height of between 25-31mm. This results in a significant reduction in floor weight and therefore structural loads, resulting in potential cost savings. The reduction in system height also adds valuable extra space, particularly for multi-storey projects like apartments and hotels.
The reduced screed level also allows for quicker reaction times when adjusting room temperatures. This not only boosts system efficiencies, but is also useful on a practical level as it can be used in wet areas, such as changing rooms, to dry floors and reduce trip hazards.
Matt Lowe, managing director of Giacomini UK, commented: “Due to the nature of the work involved, screed warranties generally do not span to ten years so we are delighted to be able to offer this in conjuction with our UFH systems. There is nothing like this on the market so we are very pleased to be able to offer this new level of reassurance to customers.”
The first project to benefit from the new warranty is Axon Power Headquarters in Dungannon, Northern Ireland where a solid floor has been installed in the reception, boardrooms, offices, toilets and other communal areas.
