Uponor’s Fast Trak knobbed mats [www.uponorpro.com/en/Catalog/Cover.aspx] provide a faster method for installing PEX tubing in a radiant floor heating system. Used in overpour applications for basements, recreation rooms, bathrooms or any area of a home, Fast Trak is available in two models: Fast Trak 0.5 and Fast Trak 1.3i.
Fast Trak 0.5 is 1/2" thick, eliminating the need to alter baseboards, moldings or doors. The product is made for 5/16" PEX tubing and features an adhesive backing for easy installation to a slab or subfloor.
Fast Trak 1.3i is 1 1/4" thick. It holds 3/8" or 1/2" PEX tubing and includes insulation already in the mat, eliminating the added time and cost of installing insulation under the tubing. Fast Trak Edge Strips are required to prevent overpour from seeping under the panels and to protect the surrounding substructure from moisture damage and expansion forces.
