Heating and cooling systems
Decreasing building energy requirements and the use of renewable energy generation predestine the use of surface heating and cooling systems. The cuprotherm system variants represent a broad portfolio.
Underfloor heating and cooling
cuprotherm is the most widely installed surface heating system made of copper tubing. A material with tradition, combined with the most modern technology, withstands even the highest demands. Durable and absolutely reliable in operation, that's what cuprotherm stands for - for the life of a house!
The classic variant of underfloor heating offers architectural freedom and increased living comfort. It consists of an insulation layer, a classic screed as a load distribution layer and the top covering. In addition to the cuprotherm system structures, individual, variable substructures can also be selected depending on requirements. The situation is similar with the screeds. The wet system conforms to standards and can nevertheless be designed very flexibly. Today's solutions make use of modern and innovative products such as the flexible and high-quality CTX tubes with a seamless drawn core made of copper.
Construction is always a race against time. Building moisture and the long drying times of conventional screeds and especially flowing screeds delay the progress of construction. Meeting deadlines is often difficult. Guassasphalt screed is the best and fastest solution in this situation. In addition, this variant has a comparatively high thermal output due to the low screed thickness and the direct embedding of the heating tube.
Interesting for new construction and renovation. With a system structure of a minimum of 33 mm, cuprotherm-ekoBoden not only meets the requirements for the lowest possible floor structure. Little screed mass ensures fast-acting underfloor heating. This is made possible by the use of the special cuprotherm dimpled foil in conjunction with a conventional screed and the proven and flexible cuprotherm CTX tube 14x2 mm.
Flat, light and fast! The problem solver cuprotherm-ekoLight is an ultra-slim, thin-layer surface heating system that produces a temperature-controlled floor construction with just a few components. The special feature is the design of the load distribution layer. Here, a fast-acting and light system is created with minimal screed covering, with comparatively high load-bearing capacity.
ZERO installation height! The cuprotherm MINI panel heating system requires no additional installation height for existing floors. Grooves are machined into the existing screed into which our cuprotherm CTX brand copper tubes are integrated. Professionally prepared screeds with a thickness of 35 millimetres or more are suitable for milling. Directly after the pipes have been laid, all common top coverings can be laid. Cuprotherm-MINI, the ideal solution for incorporating the comfort of panel heating into existing buildings.
The cuprotherm dry construction system is used in both existing and new buildings. Fast construction progress is ensured without the additional entry of construction moisture. Low mass ensures good controllability and a floor construction with low weight.

The installation of underfloor heating in commercial buildings is steadily increasing. With today's building standards, the efficient use of e.g. free waste heat creates additional incentives for the installation of efficient surface heating. The wide range of tube dimensions, the robustness of the cuprotherm CTX tubes mean that a large number of industrial surface variants are possible, even with high traffic loads.
Wall heating and cooling
Wall panel heating is becoming increasingly popular due to its pleasantly perceived radiant heat and optimal comfort. Walls heated with "tubuli" were already appreciated in ancient times. This is due to the high proportion of radiation, which is known from the sun and which already occurs at low air temperatures. Lower air temperatures, in turn, reduce ventilation heat losses and can thus result in significant energy savings.
Furthermore, there are many other reasons for wall heating. The drastically increased regulations, e.g. through the Energy Saving Ordinance (EnEV), have led to relatively low heating loads in today's building stock. Direct heat transfer is thermally favourable, as the heating pipes are embedded in the interior plaster without cavities.
If high-quality floor coverings are to be retained, the wall surface can be used as a heating element. In the bathroom, the specific heating load can often not be achieved by the underfloor heating alone. Here, too, supplementary wall heating is ideal.
Wall heating and cooling with wet plaster
In buildings with limited wall space and a high proportion of windows or furniture, cuprotherm wall heating and cuprotherm underfloor heating can be combined as required due to the coordinated system design. The thoughtful coordination of the individual system components and the careful selection of materials ensure long-term and particularly reliable operation.cuprotherm wall heating is manufactured on site using a sheathed branded copper pipe, fixed to the wall and plastered. On-site assembly with corresponding variable accessories allows flexible reaction to geometric conditions such as windows or existing installations.
cupronova wall heating in dry construction
The wall heating elements are designed for dry construction and are already fully assembled. The inserted pipelines consist of the innovative flexible copper tubes with firmly adhering, white sheathing. Due to the ideal material properties of copper for heating systems, the additional, extended cupronova system guarantee applies when the complete heating system is installed with copper tubes.
Copper is the ideal material for heating installations: extreme temperature resistance, diverse and secure connection options, mechanical stability and pressure resistance as well as a wide range of fittings and connectors enable solutions for all heating installations. In addition to SANCO- and WICU-tubes, cuprotherm CTX-Rohre tubes or flexibly insulated ring tubes such as WICU Flex are also used in the heating sector. Especially for radiator connections, the cuprotherm radiator connection system, which is tailored to the needs of heating, is an optimal solution for quick and economical installation.
