High Mass Radiant Systems: Considerations for Installing Radiant Cooling Floors in Industrial Buildings

Designing and constructing an industrial building (from factories, to gas stations, to call centres) is complex process. In modern energy and fashion conscious society, the design and installation of a radiant systems has become a vital aspect of this process.

Radiant systems have a lot of scientifically verified advantages over conventional all-air systems. However, before those benefits can be realised, you have to get past designing and installing the radiant system. In this blog, I will cover some key considerations for installing a high mass radiant cooling floor system.

Should You Use A Low Mass Or High Mass Radiant System For Your Next Project?

In a previous blog, I covered the differences between low and high mass radiant systems. In short, there are four major differences; energy retention, the speed of response, the materials used, and the physical construction. In this blog, I will cover what these differences mean for the building project, and what the merits and challenges of each system are. Hopefully, this will help you decide which radiant system, high or low mass, you should use for your next project.

The 4 Differences Between Low and High Mass Radiant Systems

There are a lot of ways to install a radiant system. However, radiant systems can be broadly split into low mass radiant systems and high mass radiant systems. The difference between these is important because it can significantly affect the best design for your next project.
