Radiant heating is a technology for heating indoor and outdoor areas.
The heat energy is emitted from a warm element, such as a floor, wall or overhead panel, and warms people and other objects in rooms rather than directly heating the air.
The internal air temperature for radiant heated buildings may be lower than for a conventionally heated building to achieve the same level of body comfort, when adjusted so the perceived temperature is actually the same. For more than 20 years, we have offered a complete line of products and design assistance for our dealers. Included in our line of products are GT Globe Radiant Floor Tubing, Embassy manifolds and a full line of controls by GT Globe and Tekmar.

How does it work?
For over 30 years, we have offered a complete line of products and design assistance for our dealers. Included in our line of products are GT Globe Radiant Floor Tubing, Embassy manifolds and a full line of controls by GT Globe and Tekmar.
GT Globe tubing installed in a small shop. The tubing is stapled to the insulation using special staples available from Terra-Therm. It is very important to insulate under the slab and around the perimeter.
Seen on right: Connecting a Hydronic Radiant Center to the Embassy Manifold system.
Once the loops are installed the ends of the loops are connected to the Embassy Manifolds and the system is pressure tested before pouring cement. Note the Embassy Manifold. Its features include:
- built in flow controls to balance loop flow
- built in flow meters
- will accept motorized controls for electronic zoning
- built in thermometers on supply and return
- built in air bleeds
- built in purge ports that seal automatically
- minimal restriction for high flow rate
The HYDRONIC RADIANT CENTER (HRC) comes with all the hydronic components including the pump and Seisco Electric Hydronic Heat Source pre-plumbed, pressure tested and ready for connection to your floor system manifold: A real time saver for the heating professional. It is ideal for single or multiple zone applications.
