Course Information

UFH & Plumbing

This is a two day residential course at our purpose built facilities in Lutterworth. The course is aimed at both new and experienced users of our products, both Wirsbo and Unipipe Systems, and gives a thorough understanding of applications of UFH and plumbing in our theory suite and practical exercises in our hands on practical suite.

For the first day you will be introduced to the products and gain the knowledge required to ascertain the feasibility of either UFH or plumbing and get a good grounding to prepare you for day 2.

For the second day its “hands on” with the opportunity to lay floors and systems as well as get to grips with the controls packages and start to trouble shoot and identify how to carry out diagnostic checks. You will have the opportunity to run through scenarios that can be replicated on our live systems, and use the rigs to illustrate most on site situations.

You will leave this course with a foundation on how to identify if systems are useable in site applications, and coupled with the hands on element a good understanding of the techniques required to carry the job out.
