Installing In Slab Heat Piping

  1. 1. INSTALLING THE “IN SLAB” HEAT AT WORLD WIDE AUTOMOTIVE Installed on: April 22, 2009 EarthDay!
  2. 2. Dave from Simanton Mechanical designed and directed the installation
  3. 3. The first step in the installation in laying the insulation blanket in place
  4. 4. The blanket has 5 layers
  5. 5. Wrestling the blanket into place
  6. 6. Next comes the rebar “chairs” that will hold the rebar sheets above the blanket
  7. 7. Then the sheets of reinforcement wire (rebar) are placed on top of the chairs
  8. 8. The “chairs” position the rebar sheets so they end up in the middle of the concrete slab once in is poured
  9. 9. Next comes the plastic piping
  10. 10. The pipe is fed out across the sheets of rebar in giant loops
  11. 11. Areas where the shop’s lifts will bolt down are marked as “no pipe” zones
  12. 12. To keep the pipe in place during the pouring of the concrete…
  13. 13. The great crew from Simanton wired the pipe to the rebar every few feet
  14. 14. That took a lot of wire!
  15. 15. The ends of the pipe had to be channeled to a central location…
  16. 16. ..where they will meet up with the heating system in the mechanical room
  17. 17. Thank you Dave & crew!
